If you didn’t hear of a Bolosilk until you adopted your own, then you are not alone. The Bolosilk is not a very common dog, given that they get their history from Silky Terrier and Bolognese parents. As a result, you do not get a guarantee of any personality traits. They can be a mixture of both parents or have stronger features from one than the other. In most cases, however, you can expect to get a friendly, small dog that doesn’t need a lot of outdoor physical activity. Instead, you can try out these activities with a strong focus on mental stimulation.
Bubbles make an excellent activity for Bolosilks for many reasons. Firstly, they cater to their need for mental stimulation by making them work out how to get the bubbles. Then, they provide a little bit of physical activity to take the edge off. All you need for this sunny outdoor activity is a child-friendly and non-toxic bubble mixture, a wand to blow it with, and chicken stock to make it smell appealing. You can then carry it out in 10-minute sessions which should be enough to wear them out and keep them happy. This cheap and easy activity is going to appeal to many Bolosilk owners.
If you want to bond with your dog, then earn their trust through activities such as nail clipping. Bolosilks require constant and regular grooming, and nail clipping can be a part of that. They do not get to run and jump on concrete as much as more energetic dogs do, so their nails are not often wearing down naturally. Nail clipping is not the most fun activity, but it’s one that enables you to spend time with your furry friend. It’s also reasonably affordable with only a need for clippers and a treat, and it can all be over in 20 minutes. You can also do it in all weather conditions which makes it convenient as well.
Coming up with fun things to do when it’s raining outside can seem impossible, but for a breed that typically spends a lot of time inside anyway, it’s not as much of a hard ask. You only have to think outside the square a little more. Teaching your dog how to give a high five is a fun but challenging task that can take several days or weeks to master. Break up the time into five-minute sessions and have plenty of treats on hand. Even though it’s free, you are still going to need to have a lot of kibble at your disposal until they finally master it! However, once your Bolosilk nails how to give a high five, they will be the life of any party.
Are you allowing your Bolosilk to stay home alone for any period? Then don’t leave them empty-pawed! Instead, arm them with dog chew toys they can enjoy while you’re off the property. Bolosilks are companion dogs, and you need to give them something to focus on while you are away. The last thing you want is for it to be your new pair of shoes instead.
If your Bolosilk is anxious or stressed, then why not try out Doga? Doga is yoga for dogs, focusing on calming down your dog, so they are less of a ball of nerves. You can try out moves at home, or you can join a club. There are now more dog-friendly yoga classes in cities than ever before.
Bolosilks are beautiful companions for families, couples, individuals, and those who are old or young. They are versatile, lovable, and tie in beautifully with home life. They also don’t need a lot of physical exertion. You do, however, need to keep their minds active and sharp, and always offer pawsitive reinforcement whenever they do anything well. They are a breed that is in constant need of your attention and love. One look at their face and you won’t mind giving them all that and more!
