For an active dog, a game of chase is entertaining. While you and your Black Russian Wolfhound Terrier can take turns chasing each other, why not use a toy to make it more interesting? Get your dog to sit and then grab their toy and run away, calling for them to come. When they catch you, and they will, it is their turn. Cornering them may be a bit harder, but you can cheat with the offer of a reward for the toy. If it's a cold day it is an ideal opportunity to warm up a bit. The game offers a bit of sneaky training as you get your dog to stop and drop when you grab their collar. Your Black Russian Wolfhound Terrier is a quick learner, and once they know treats are on offer, they will obey willingly.
Step
1
Tag, you are it
Grab one of your dog's toys, then take your Black Russian Wolfhound Terrier outside for a game of chase. Tease them a little with the toy, then make them sit and stay. Run as fast as you can with the toy and then call them. The hard part is to dodge them and keep out of their range. But they will catch you and when they do, offer praise and lots of pats. Encouragement goes a long way to motive your dog.

It's your dog's turn
Tease your dog a little with the toy and then chase after them as they try to keep it to themselves. Your dog can be very evasive when they want to be, so you may have to bribe your dog with a treat to come and drop the toy for you. Again, dish out a good deal of praise before grabbing the toy and racing off again with it. Your dog will be in hot pursuit before you know it. You may have to get them to stay so you can get a good distance away, don't make it too easy for them. Then call and try and avoid being run down by your frisky terrier.

Activity description
When it is wet for several days, you can slowly run out of ideas of how to keep your canine pal occupied. On a rainy day, invite your dog to come along on a trip to the local pet barn. The outing alone will lift your bored pup's spirits - and yours! These places often welcome well-behaved dogs to come in with their owners and have a look around. Be warned, it will cost you as your dog is bound to find a toy that they will give you the 'doggie eyes' over and beg to have! You may discover some cool puzzles, squeaky things, and some of those self-moving balls which will catch your dog's imagination. If you can afford a few things, then let your dog choose their favorites. You can spend quite some time in these stores as there is so much to see, and probably a few other dogs to meet.

Brave the day and go out
While it is tempting to stay inside on days that are less than pleasant, a break from home will do you and your dog a lot of good. First of all, your dog will love the car ride, and then when they see and smell the pet barn, they will love you forever. But, only take your dog if they are obedient and well behaved. It will be fun going up and down the isles, and your Black Russian Wolfhound Terrier is bound to attract attention! They may even meet another dog or two and make a new friend. The friendly assistant may offer your dog a treat or your dog may ask you for a tasty looking treat. Who could resist their pleading eyes?

Hard choices
The hardest thing to do is to resist buying too much! But a new tasty treat and a couple of new toys are surely worth seeing the joy on your dog's face. They will probably want to carry one of the toys around with them which means you are committed to buying it. Your dog's senses will get a good workout here, as will the sneaky bit of training you slip in as they move about. This outing is a great opportunity to socialize for your dog which builds confidence in them. With your arms full, head up to the checkout and pay for your purchases. What a fun trip for your pooch!

Activity description
Your Black Russian Wolfhound Terrier is an active dog who always looks more substantial in size than they are. Thick, dense fur can be deceiving. Still, these pooches need a challenge, so why not enroll your dog in a class for agility and obedience? The agility course will test your dog's skills in obeying your orders and instructions. You will be actively involved, so it is a fun way of sharing time with your dog. The better your dog gets, the harder they make it, so your dog always gets a good workout. You can get some great ideas for jumps, tunnels and climbing ladders from the class which you can set up at home when you and your dog are looking for some action. The trainers offer valuable tips on useful commands for your dog and can give insights into their behavior and how to manage your dog when dealing with unacceptable habits.
Step
1
Let's get this class started
The first day of a class will be a whole new experience for your dog. There will be many new dogs and people to meet, and no doubt a bit more noise than they are used to. But with you there to reassure them, they will slowly relax. Usually, in the first class, a bit of time is spent describing what the dogs will be doing, and going over a few rules about giving treats and so on. The first time around the course is usually quite slow as the dog gets used to each bit of apparatus. Going through a tunnel, climbing up and over a frame, or jumping over jumps instead of going around them all takes time for your dog to understand. Be patient and loving - it should be fun!

Who said learning was easy
Some dogs will learn a lot quicker than others. Don't panic if your pup is a slow learner, they will get it soon. Be patient and keep repeating the lesson. As they get used to each stage of the course, it will become more fun. The trainer may get the dogs to compete against each other to see who can do the fastest leg. This is not a serious competition, it is a bit of FUN. If it is fun for a dog, they will want to keep doing an activity. If it becomes unpleasant and tense, they won't want to continue. Let them learn at their own pace and offer praise when they do their best.

It's in their genes
Your Black Russian Wolfhound Terrier comes from a working background. The parent breeds were either involved in the military or were used by owners for protection of the home and land. Therefore, they adapt well to training and challenges. This type of activity will provide an outlet for their abundant energy and sharpens their obedience. It also makes them feel useful, as though they have a purpose which is a great thing for a dog. Encourage their learning and enjoy the time watching them develop their skills for each step of the agility course. Then, when you take your dog home, they will relax and catch up on some much needed sleep!

Search and Rescue

The Black Russian Wolfhound Terrier loves a challenge - they are great at finding hidden objects. Enroll them in Search and Rescue training where they will learn a variety of new skills. They excel at being guided and are keen to please; they will eagerly follow a trail and tackle different terrain to find the object of their search. This activity uses both the physical and mental abilities of your dog. It is challenging, and they may become a useful part of your local search and rescue squad after training.

Surfing

If your dog loves water, teach them to surf in the shallow water as you walk beside them and steady the board. Another way to show them is to stand on the board with them and get them used to surf in on the smaller waves. At first, it will take your dog time to get their balance on the moving board. But once they get the hang of it, there will be no stopping them. It will burn up a lot of your dog's energy, it will cool them down, and most of all - it will be fun!

Conclusion

Your Black Russian Wolfhound Terrier is not fussy as to what type of activity they engage in; they like to be busy and to be with you, so that makes it easy. From blowing bubbles that your dog can chase, to going and flying a kite together, the choice of fun things to do is endless. Teach your dog the names of their toys and then train them to go and fetch each toy you name. Train your dog to wear a harness and a backpack, and they will be able to help carry things when you are out shopping. Train them to sit and quietly wait as you visit a shop, and then reward them well when they do. Your dog can do so much more than to sit at your feet. They can be your canine companion extraordinaire.
