Borgis, hybrid breeds of Pembroke Welsh Corgis and Border Collies, rank in the top 50 dogs perfect for families. Not only do they get on well with other children and pets, but they are loyal, faithful, fun-loving and very attentive and alert. However, Borgis also require a significant amount of physical activity because their parents are both high-energy dogs. What’s more, given the intelligence of the Border Collie, you may also find mental stimulation is a necessity as well. Avoid your shoes being chewed up and scattered like confetti and add these activities into your daily routine.
If you are looking for something fun to do that will only take 45 minutes on a sunny day, then why not gather your furry friend and go for a run? If you are a family of physical activity junkies, then your pup will love the opportunity to be a part of your hobby. This free activity can take you all over your town or city, opening your eyes to what’s going on in your local area, while also giving your pup the exercise they need. What’s more, a 45-minute run will ensure they tire out and come home ready to take a nap. All you need for this fun run is a leash and a waste bag, and you’re ready to go!
If you live in an apartment, have a small yard, or it’s raining outside, a fun activity to pass the time is bubble blowing. Given the Border Collie’s need for running and jumping, you will find this cheap and easy activity is more than enough to entertain them for an hour or more. All you need is a bubble blower and a spacious area, and you can help your pampered pooch to burn off all that energy they have stored up. The best part is, it’s going to be as fun for you as it is for them, watching them leap, jump, and try to catch the bubbles.
If you are a busy working family with no one home during the day, you may find your puppy suffers as a result. They pine for you when you’re not there, and can become destructive when they’re bored and have nothing to do. Rather than allow that, why not enroll them in doggy daycare? They can stay there the whole day, and while it’s expensive in many cases, it gives you the peace of mind that your pampered pooch is having a lot of fun. If you think this is the best option for you, gather their leash, a treat, toy, and bedding, and take them for a visit.
Trying to tire out a high-energy dog is a challenge, but if you have a laser, it’s not impossible. Purchase a dog-friendly laser and run it over floors in poorly-lit areas. Once they see it, you will have a hard time trying to stop them from seeking it out! This fun game can go on for hours, and even days.
Border Collies and Corgis are both herding dogs, which means they love taking part in games that mimic these actions. As a result, you will find that a game of fetch will provide no end of entertainment. On a sunny day, take them to the park or into your spacious yard and play. All it takes is half an hour to fill their happiness meter!
When you don’t provide Borgis with mental and physical stimulation, they can begin to feel pretty ruff. They need constant activity and attention, and if you can’t give it to them, they are prone to destruction. Try out these activities above and see if it makes a difference. Your shoe collection may thank you for it.
