Introduction

A Beaski is a Siberian Husky and Beagle mix – creating a beautiful, medium-sized dog with floppy ears that makes a brilliant household companion. They are affectionate, independent, active, and can live to around 15 years of age. However, when you adopt a Beaski, you never know what you are going to get. Your new furry friend can be good with children and other dogs as a Beagle is, or could be good with pets but not children. Being aware of their personality traits can determine whether these activities below will be suitable for their needs.

Activity description

If your Beaski is chomping at the bit to head out into the water, then you may find they are more jet ski than Beaski. Harness their love for the water and try to encourage them to learn how to surf. Learning to surf with your dog is an expensive activity, as you need to buy a dog surfboard and life jacket, but it’s an entirely rewarding one. You only have to spend an hour or so at the beach on a sunny day, and its hard difficulty level makes it beneficial for your puppy to wear themselves out. What’s more, it’s going to be an excellent bonding opportunity as you both hit the waves on a warm summer’s day. 

Step
1
Choose a board
Believe it or not, you can’t just give your dog your spare board and expect them to use it like a natural. Instead, you need to buy a board that features all the right components for a dog. Your old wax board will not have enough grip or support, while a foam board can tear their pads and prove troublesome under their claws. Find one that has a safety release handle, soft traction, and many safety features in case you need to get your dog out of trouble.

Know your dog
Not every Beaski is going to enjoy being in the water, so you have to notice their attraction to it and encourage it, rather than make them like something in which they are not interested. If you find that they love spending time in the water, then that’s a good start. Bring them to a lake or swimming pool with flat water, and work on them retrieving their toys from it. You can then introduce the board, encouraging them to get up onto it and get used to it being around.

Surfing
If your dog is now used to their surfboard on flat water, you then have to prepare them for the surfing part. Bring the board to the beach, lay it on the sand for them to get used to again, then get in the water with your Beaski and the board. It may take several tries and a lot of treats and encouragement, but if they have a natural affinity for the water, they will take to it like a duck to…

Activity description

Regular food puzzles can be expensive, especially when your Beaski, with a high intelligence level, will quickly tire of the same old game. There’s no fooling your smart pup, so you need to be at the top of your game all the time. To make sure your dog gets as much mental stimulation as possible, you need to flex your creative muscles and create DIY puzzles. It might take you an hour or more for them to get that equal time of fun, and you may need a lot of things such as a t-shirt, treats, water, and a bully stick, but it’s a fun activity they are bound to love. What’s more, it doesn’t cost a lot of money. 

Step
1
Pawpsicles
An excellent hot day activity, or one for outdoors, is popsicles for dogs. Not only do they provide your dog with hydration on a hot day, but they challenge your dog to figure out how to get the snacks. Freeze treats inside a popsicle mold, adding a bully stick as the popsicle stick halfway through the freezing process. You can use regular water, or you can add a bit of low-salt beef or chicken stock for a fun twist. Your pup can then spend an hour or so licking, biting, and crunching the popsicle to get to the treats in the center!
Step
2
Ball and tee toy
A homemade toy can often be quite a challenge for a Beaski because it may not be like anything they’ve seen. Knot an old t-shirt together and add two tennis balls at an even distance apart. You can then play tug of war with your four-legged friend, with the balls adding the challenging element. They won’t know whether to get you to throw the balls or tear them apart!
Step
3
Treat ball
On a hot summer’s day, a Beaski can have trouble cooling off. Dogs cannot sweat, and they need your help to remain cool when the shade alone is not enough. You can do your part for your dog, and provide them with a challenge, by freezing a balloon full of water with treats inside. When it freezes solid like a ball, cut off the balloon rubber and place the ball outside in a shaded area. They get to roll it around in the grass, lick it, and eventually work their way to the treats such as mixed vegetables scattered throughout.

Activity description

It can be hard to think up things you and your Beaski can do together. Many fun activities can cost money or don’t provide the stimulation your pup typically needs. That’s why a nature walk is so much fun for dog owners. It’s also doesn’t cost any money and has a comfortable difficulty level as well. What’s more, given your dog’s parentage of two high-energy dogs, you will find that a two-hour trip into nature is what they need to deplete their energy resources. When you decide to go for a nature walk, carry a leash, water, and a waste bag. You are then ready to hit the road for a fun sunny-day leisure walk.

Step
1
Choose a route
When you are trying to come up with a route idea, think about your dog’s personality. Can your puppy be social with other dogs? Or, do you need to go somewhere more isolated? What are they like with wildlife? Are they capable of listening to you and keep walking without trying to bound off after a bunny? There are many dog-friendly nature trails, especially within national parks. However, make sure the one you pick is dog-friendly, and find out whether it has any rules regarding off-leash walking.
Step
2
Walk
For the next two hours, you and your furry friend can now make your way down a nature track, soaking up the sights, sounds, and scents. Your dog will love the kaleidoscope of senses, as well as the freedom to explore in a new environment. After a two-hour round trip, you can now return home with a tired pup and all those calories burnt off!

More Fun Ideas...

Dog Park

Not every Beaski will get along with other dogs as they grow up, which is why early socialization at a dog park is crucial. Put them in with medium-sized dogs and help them to understand that dogs are friends, not foes. Begin the process from a young age and even include play dates with other dog parents where possible.  

Puppy School

When you first bring your Beaski home as a puppy, it’s a good idea to begin puppy school right away. Here, they can learn about how to play with other dogs, how to wait for their dinner, how to sit, and even tips for toilet training. If you want to start dog ownership on the right foot, puppy school is an activity that’s well worth trying. 

Conclusion

Your Beaski will become your bestie in no time! They are a loyal, active, and faithful furry companion, and love nothing more than to take part in high-energy activities with you by their side. They are also unique in the respect that all puppies can look different from the same breed. If you are looking for a doggo that will provide you with unlimited love and loyalty, you will discover that a Beaski is a pawfect fit.
