The Affenwich, a cross between an Affenpinscher and a Norwich Terrier, is a small, hypoallergenic dog that adjusts well to family life. They love to be a part of your daily routine and enjoy nothing more than going for walks, trips to the park, journeys in the car, and even going to the groomers. However, as soon as you stop putting them at the center of your world, they can be a destructive and loud pet to own. Therefore, you need to keep your finger on the pulse of fun activities to keep them out of trouble. If you find you’re clean out of ideas on keeping your Affenwich entertained and happy, try out these options below.
To keep your pampered pooch well-socialized and out of trouble, a trip to the dog park a few times a week for an hour a day can be helpful. It’s an easy and free activity, you only need a toy and a leash, and you will find there are many benefits associated with the experience. While you might believe your backyard has everything your pup needs to keep them entertained, they think differently. Therefore, you need to provide your pup with a wide, open area in which they can run, stretch their legs, and interact with other small dogs. A dog park can be that very place.
On a sunny day when you have half an hour to spare, you may find a trip outside the confines of your home or apartment is beneficial for you both. Affenwich dogs make good apartment dwellers, but only if you have plenty of time to set aside for their outdoor requirements. What’s more, you need to make sure you have a few route ideas up your sleeve so they don’t get bored with the outing. Once you’ve found time for a journey outdoors, clip on your dog’s leash, take a doggy waste bag and take them for a wander around the neighborhood.
If the rain is pelting down outside but your dog is in desperate need of stimulation, then a game of ‘hide and seek’ can tick all the boxes. It’s not only free and takes just 20 minutes of your time, but it will see your dog engage in a new form of fun they may not be used to. What’s more, you can use the toys they already own, paying particular attention to their favorite ones. A game of ‘hide and seek’ when you can’t go outside could be a saving grace for a bored pup who may become destructive without attention.
If you don’t have time to take your dog to the park or for a walk, then chew toys can help your dog have fun without you. For a small dog such as an Affenwich, you will find the options available for purchase are also very affordable. Always make sure to keep a few on hand that can entertain your dog when you can’t.
Affenwich dogs can be quite nosy, which means they always like to know what’s going on around them. If you’re heading to the shops or for a drive with your family, why not take your furry friend along for the ride? While not all dogs like to go in the car, some relish the opportunity to take in the kaleidoscope of sights, sounds, and smells that encompass them in the vehicle. What’s more, it’s not taking up any extra of your time by allowing them to come with you.
When it comes to choosing the best activities for Affenwich dogs, you need to put your best paw forward. A bored Affenwich is a destructive one, which means that if you value your designer shoes, you need to have your finger on the pulse of fun activities. If you add any of these above into your daily routine, you will find your dog is not only happy but well-behaved as well.
