If you want a dog that will become your best friend, then welcome an Aussimo into your life. As your partner in crime, worker, and playmate, an Aussimo is a jack of all trades and a dog with strong character, love, and affection. What’s more, given their parentage of Australian Cattle Dog and American Eskimo Dog, they take after both parents with strong work ethic and a “go, go, go” attitude. In essence, an Aussimo doesn’t want to sit still and most likely won’t. Whether you want to zap up some of that energy or provide your pup with fun activities, you will find these options below can go a long way to creating a happy and well-rounded dog.
Both Australian Cattle Dogs and American Eskimo Dogs are smart dogs. When you train them from a young age, you will find they are also exceptionally obedient and only too happy to do as you ask. Because they are also a working dog, you will learn that an excellent activity for them is dog obedience trials. It combines instructions with stimulation and physical activity to ensure they get the best of every type of engagement. Dog obedience trials can be an all-weather activity involving rings, treats, and cones, but it’s one that can be quite expensive and challenging to learn in the beginning. Follow these steps to become involved with dog obedience trials.
An Aussimo needs to be “on the go” all the time, and when they can’t be, they tend to become a little bit frustrated. They can even be prone to destructive behavior which puts your favorite pair of shoes at risk! However, when it’s raining, and you aren’t able to go outside and play, you need to think outside of the square. A game of ‘hide and seek’ with man’s best friend may be the answer. Appealing to their inquisitive nature, it enables them to find treats and toys within your home for half an hour. It’s affordable, quick, effortless, and will provide your pampered pooch with a lot of fun.
If you are looking to warm up on a cold and miserable day, then a run in the great outdoors is undoubtedly going to do it. What’s more, if you love taking part in physical activity, then an Aussimo was an excellent dog choice. They, too, like to run. Running is a free, natural activity that will burn off your dog’s energy and your own in as little as an hour. You can take several routes, push yourself or take it easy, and provide your dog with an opportunity to leave the house. Once you purchase the correct running trainers for yourself, you then only need a leash for your dog and a waste bag before you can get going.
Most Aussimos love nothing more than to spend time with their owners, so a game of frisbee could be a way to strengthen that bond. Head outside into your backyard and throw a frisbee as far as you can. Once your dog brings it back, you can throw it again, repeating the process until either you or them tire out.
Aussimos typically get along well with most animals, but if you don’t want to take the risk, then include regular dog park trips into their routine. When you are continually exposing them to dogs where they need to form relationships, you will find they are far better when they come across dogs in other social situations. What’s more, this activity is free, fun, and easy for both you and your furry friend.
If you lead an active lifestyle or need a dog you can trust to carry out tasks with you on the farm; then an Aussimo is the pup for you. This loving, loyal, and intelligent breed is one that will always have your best interests at heart, obeying all your commands and being your best friend in the process. When they get to “clock off” for the day, why not treat them to a few pawesome activities for all their hard work and effort throughout the day?
