Introduction

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.

Activity description

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! 

Step
1
Set routes
If you want to remain consistent with how long you run for, then doing research can help. You can set specific courses that take 45 minutes, while also identifying which will be better in different weather. For example, nature runs can prove popular when it’s windy to shelter you from the breeze while running through your local parks will be even more rewarding when the sun’s shining. Take the time to plan your routes, and you will thank yourself for it later.
Step
2
Go running
When Borgis don’t get enough exercise, they can be quite destructive. However, once you put your running shoes on and grab their leash, they immediately leave behind thoughts of destroying your footwear and can’t wait to head outside. Even though Borgis have short legs thanks to their Corgi parentage, they are still reasonably fast on their feet. Keep a consistent jogging pace, and you’re sure to find they can keep up and even get ahead of you.

Bubble blower
Activity description

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.

Step
1
Buy bubbles
When you decide that a game involving bubbles is going to be a fun pastime for you and your furry friend, it’s time to go shopping. However, you need to be careful with the bubbles you select. Read the labeling carefully and make sure it is non-toxic, non-staining, and is suitable for both pets and children. What’s more, make sure it’s a convenient package you can store away out of sight of your pup.
Step
2
Clear an area
Playing with bubbles is a fun pastime in any weather, but if you are playing inside, you may want to clear a space. The last thing you want is for your prized vase to shatter into a million pieces on the floor because your boisterous Borgi is like a bull in a China shop. Choose an area of your home that features clear space or even head out to the garage or sheltered verandah if you have one.
Step
3
Play
To play with bubbles, you dip the bubble stick into the tacky bubble mixture and slowly bring it out so you can see a transparent film over the hole. Gently blow into it, forming a bubble which will release off the stick at its own pace. Blow several small ones, to begin with, so your dog is amazed by the sight of it. Then, you can perfect your technique by blowing large ones that will get them excited and try to chase them.

Activity description

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. 

Step
1
Choose a facility
Because North America is full of dog lovers, it’s of no surprise that dog motels and doggy daycare facilities are abundant. The hardest part, however, is choosing the one you like. Ultimately, the most convenient one is going to be closest to your home. However, is it the best? Check out their online reviews, talk to family and friends, then make the decision based on those.
Step
2
Visit the facility
Before you begin taking your Borgi to doggy daycare for an entire day, get them used to the facility slowly. Start off by visiting and remaining with them, then drop them off for a half day. After doing this, your pup will begin getting used to the people, pets, and environment. You may even find that when you drop them off for a full day, they can’t wait to go inside!
Step
3
Settle in
After a few visits and half days, it’s now time to settle into a routine of dropping them off in the morning then picking them up after work. No doubt, your pup will have had a full day of play and fun with other dogs, which means they are bound to fall asleep in the car on the way home. You can now enjoy the peace of mind knowing that they aren’t bored and alone all day. It’s well worth the cost.

More Fun Ideas...

Fetch

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!  

Laser Game

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.  

Conclusion

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.
