Your American Pugabull is a hybrid resulting from the breeding of an American Bulldog with a Pug, and as such, your canine companion is moderately active, combining the high levels of activity contributed by the Pug parent and the lower levels shared by the American Bulldog parent. The level of intelligence is high in this hybrid as is that of curiosity, thus making it vital to provide mental stimulation at a level that is perhaps higher than that which is needed to keep them physically challenged and healthy. Both parent breeds suffer from separation anxiety, making it essential that you build plenty of together time into your lifestyle with them. This guide will provide some activity suggestions to challenge your pet both physically as well as mentally, offering options for outside, inside, and any weather condition or climate. The cost of these games is in the moderate zone, and are dependent upon where you make the purchases. A word of caution, because of the nasal structure of both parent breeds, be sure to avoid letting your pet become overheated.
The game of Frisbee fetch is one that many children play, which has also become a favored one for our four-legged furry friends, incorporating a primary talent of most canine species - chasing and retrieval. Most dogs are willing to pursue an object though they may not necessarily be as willing to bring it back to you or relinquish it to you once they’ve brought it back. Some training and encouragement are sometimes needed to bring them up to speed on expectations. This activity can be done in any open space with dry weather desired, and any member of the family can play. The cost of the Frisbee is relatively cheap, depending upon where you make your purchase. The duration of the activity is adjustable as is the venue where played - a backyard, park or beach will do!
Your American Pugabull is a chewer extraordinaire, compliments of both parent breeds! Unfortunately, your shoes, furniture, and the kid’s toys are at risk for destruction as your pup does what comes naturally to them. To keep peace within your household, and to protect your pet, it is vital to guide them and provide them with suitable toys to achieve contentment in their chewing drive. A trip to the pet store, or any department store that sells pet toys, enables you to consider the “chewing” options for your precious pup. Depending on the venue at which you make your purchase, the cost of these toys is moderate at best. These toys are designed for durability and safety while satiating the chewing mechanism genetically programmed into your canine companion. Some of these toys may have openings into which you can stash snacks or lavish with peanut butter, making the enjoyment of the toy even better for your best bud.
This game involves using a bottle of non-toxic children’s bubbles, an activity many of us played as children. Go to an open area, either inside or out, and fling the bubble wand, creating the floating targets for your pet to pursue.
The American Pugabull is a moderately energized dog who needs more mental challenge than physical exercise. Many activities listed here can fill both needs, but it is vital that you be sure to engage the dog in as many mental challenges as possible to avoid the annoying and destructive behaviors which accompany boredom. Throughout all activities with your American Pugabull, it is essential to be wary of the dangers of overheating as they exercise.
