Beardoodles are a fun and unique mix of a Bearded Collie and a Poodle. The result, much to your delight, is a dog that likes to work, perform, socialize, and get your attention. However, the parentage also means that you’re in for a lot of hard work to deplete their energy levels. Even though you can leave this breed alone to go to work without any hassles, you will still need to dedicate at least 90 minutes per day to their physical activity requirements. Below are a few of many things to help zap their energy and keep your furry friend happy.
Agility training is something that’s going to suit your Beardoodle to a tee. Poodles love to perform, whereas Bearded Collies love to work. The combination of the two personalities makes them a prime candidate for agility training. However, the process can be a little challenging, with an expensive price tag for this all-weather activity as well. Grab a leash and treat, set aside an hour, and follow these three steps below. When your pup comes home tired and ready for sleep, you will be pleased you enrolled them. What’s more, your bouncy Beardoodle will be an agility expert (and a show-off!) in no time.
When you’re a dog, it can be a challenge to find relief from the sun. Remember, dogs can’t sweat to cool themselves down, nor can they strip off layers. Treat them to a swim if you want to make sure your puppy can cool down properly. This free activity is one that takes an hour of your time while also providing you both with an opportunity to get sweet relief from that intense sun. You also only need a leash, towel, toy, and waste bag, as well as a swimming spot in mind. The water’s calling, so stop wasting time and get out there!
If a regular walk around the block won’t cut the mustard, then maybe a two-hour hike will. Your furry friend will love nothing more than heading into nature with you, taking in all the scents, sights, and sounds that the beautiful American outdoors has to offer. What’s more, you get all of this entertainment, adventure, and excitement, free of charge. Whether you’re a hiking enthusiast or not, you will find a journey into the great outdoors will do wonders for your mental and physical health, all the while cutting through that endless amount of energy your Beardoodle seems to have. If that sounds like a great option to you, then grab a leash and a waste bag and head out for a moderately strenuous hike with your furry friend.
If you don’t mind pounding the pavement if it means you can lose a few pounds, then take your Beardoodle along. Beardoodles are not dogs to miss out on the action, so it’s an opportunity to use up some of their energy while helping you to burn calories. What’s more, it only takes around 30 minutes to tire them out.
Don’t feel like heading away from home? Then treat your dog to the best at-home activity: chew toys. Chew toys can provide entertainment for hours, as long as you cater to their chewing requirements as a tough chewer. What’s more, they cost minimal money and require no effort on your part.
Beardoodles can be one of the best breeds to own. While they have a high need for exercise, they are a dog you can leave at home while you go to work, and that will provide you with love and affection no matter what time of the day you come home. Return the favor by treating them to any of these activities above. You will pawsitively make their day.
