Bologcos are Cocker Spaniels crossed with a Bolognese. Both breeds are sweet, family-oriented and loving breeds, but together, they form a sensitive, cute, and adorable dog with incredible manners. You can raise them in a house with a yard or even an apartment, and they will be happy with the arrangement. They are also more suitable for patient people who can show them new tricks and provide them with the stimulation they require. Here’s how you can get started.
The Bologco is more or less a hypoallergenic breed, but they still shed to some degree, and still require regular grooming. If you don’t groom your Bologco, you may find they end up with matted fur and knots - making them look disheveled. Grooming can be a calming, comfortable, and straightforward activity that doesn’t cost a lot of money. It can also save you a considerable amount of cash you may have spent at the groomers. Set aside half an hour, buy scissors, a brush, and pet-safe conditioning products, and get to work. Your Bologco will be looking dapper in no time.
Bologcos require both mental and physical stimulation, so when you are teaching your Bologco how to play a game, you are offering a mixture of both. A game of tag is a free activity that ticks those boxes while only requiring treats and 10 minutes of your time a few times per day. You can play it inside and outside and it will end up being one of your favorite games. It also caters to your Bologco’s needs for short bursts of activity rather than hour-long games that tire them out a little too much.
Are you looking for an activity to fill in some time but won’t cost the earth? Teaching your dog how to play beg may be the answer. This activity is one that only requires the use of treats, but will have your dog running around like a madman with excitement. Bologcos jump at the chance to take part in fun, stimulating activities to challenge them mentally, and teaching them to beg is one of them. What’s more, once they learn this all-weather game, you can use it as an icebreaker. How cute is beg as a party trick? It’s time to teach your Bologco today.
Bologcos are ideal for apartment dwellers for many reasons, but you still need to offer them toys they can interact with at their leisure. Chew toys can be the solution. If you buy them a toy basket and fill it with toys, they will be able to grab one or two out as they please, offering plenty of mental stimulation when they need it. Your input is rarely necessary.
If you are a family with older children or an apartment dweller, you will find a Bologco is for you. The Bologco grows no bigger than 20 pounds and is loving, loyal, and friendly to you and other pets you may have. However, they can be precious and have high expectations. You will need to always show pawsitive energy toward them if you want them to react in a pawsitive way! The activities above may be of assistance.
