Daily walking is the most basic of any exercise routine in which you and your dog are involved. Walking is something that virtually anyone can do, for any desired length of time or distance and literally in any weather. The essential thing to remember when walking the American Masti-Bull is that, whether the dog is a puppy or a fully-matured canine, care must be taken to ensure that they get neither overtired nor overheated. Both of these conditions are possible and can sneak up on you quickly, due to the inherited soft pallet characteristics coming from both breed parents. Don't forget to bring along lots of water and perhaps even some ice if overheating typically does occur. Walking is free and is a marvelous way for all participants to drink in the fresh air, the warmth of the sunshine and the wonders of nature, not to mention the potential for one-on-one bonding time spent with your furry best bud.
Day trip hiking is an excellent way to get in some good exercise and bonding time for you and your four-legged family member. It offers all participants the opportunity for fresh, clean air, the warmth of the sun, and the wonderment of nature. This type of trek is only a few hours time span with an American Masti-Bull who is already accustomed to walking for longer distances and durations. As the goal of this type of excursion is for shorter and less involved walking activities, the gear that’s needed is minimal, making the outing moderate in cost. Essential for one of these trips is to bringing lots of fresh drinking water, food and snacks as well as ice to provide adequate nourishment, hydration, and cooling for all parties included. Research your hiking route options and pick the one that meets your energy and time constraints, noting details of the terrain, (mountains, hills, bodies of water, forests of trees and brush). Also, take time to check the weather forecast: hot and humid, or cold and wet, or dreary and dismissal with impending rain. These route and weather conditions are essential concerns as you gather your gear for your environmental exploration.
Your American Masti-Bull is an intelligent canine, and as such, will need a fair amount of mental stimulation to avoid boredom and the annoying, destructive behaviors which can accompany it. Getting your dog involved in obedience training serves two purposes: first, you are giving them the mental stimulation they need; and second, you allow them the opportunity to expend significant amounts of energy as they train and practice.
You are the proud pet parent of an intelligent, engaging, energetic, loving, loyal and independent canine companion. This ownership brings with it the responsibility of managing the high natural energy and intelligence levels in a fun way to avoid the dangerously destructive habits that are prevalent with an American Masti-Bull. In return, you get loving devotion, protection and perhaps even a four-legged babysitter. Does it get any better than that?
