A Bolo-Chi is the result of intentional breeding between a Chihuahua and Bolognese. And, fortunately, they get many of their personality traits from the Bolognese as opposed to the Chihuahua. While this breed can be wary of people and yappy, they are also happy, loyal, and friendly dogs that are ideal for new pet owners, families, and children. They are tiny little fluffballs that weigh no more than ten pounds, and they can live a long and happy life into their teenage years. They also don’t require a lot of physical exercise because of their small stature. However, the Bolo-Chi is a needy dog that wants much of your time, so fun activities are a must. Here are a few to start you off.
If you are going to treat any breed how to dance, let it be a Bolo-Chi. If you don’t teach them, there is every possibility they are going to pick it up on their own anyway! However, teaching your Bolo Chi how to dance means you can get them to do it on command. It’s a straightforward and free activity, only requires a few treats, and you can do it in 10-minute sessions in any weather. Teaching your Bolo-Chi how to dance also means they can be the life of the party. Do you need a conversation starter? Invite your furry friend into the room and get them to dance. You are bound to find it’s one of the best icebreakers around.
Bolo-Chis are relatively hypoallergenic – at least more so than some other breeds. However, because they have a long double coat, they have higher grooming requirements than others. You need to groom your Bolo-Chi daily to prevent tangles from turning into knots and matting. You will also need to brush their fur to remove loose hair, dirt, and to even out their natural oils. Grooming can become a fun pastime for you and your furry friend, as well as an opportunity to bond. Once you buy the grooming kit, it’s an affordable and relatively straightforward task that will take only around 20 minutes if you do it every day.
Bolo-Chis may not need a lot of physical activities to keep them entertained, but they do need mental stimulation. What’s more, they are not in a hurry to let you stray too far from them! Bolo-Chis need you to be around them and can stress and fret if you leave them to their own devices. But, how can you hope to achieve anything in a day when your dog follows you around like a, well, lost puppy! Chew toys can fill the gap. Chew toys are an excellent all-weather activity that’s very affordable, doesn’t take any effort on your part, and can entertain your Bolo-Chi for an hour or more.
Are you popping out to the shops? Take man’s best friend along with you! If you are only going to be in the store for five minutes, you will find that your dog will enjoy coming along in the car with you. Make sure you invest in a car seatbelt harness so they can ride along safely.
If you adopt a small dog, then you are going to find that building up their wardrobe is a must! After all, it’s too difficult to walk past the human-like dog clothes in any pet store and not at least buy one or two! Take the time to dress your Bolo-Chi up, with their permission of course, and then take photos. You never know, your dog could become a social media sensation!
If you require a dog that doesn’t take up a lot of your time but fills a huge piece of your heart, then a Bolo-Chi is it. They take on all the loyalty and friendliness of the Bolognese and only the size of the Chihuahua. Even though they don’t need to go jogging with you to get their hit of physical activity, it’s still impawtant to fill their day with fun activities. Otherwise, they can become bored, anxious, and a little bit needy!
