What do you get when you cross an Australian Cattle Dog with a Border Collie? You get the Cattle Collie Dog, of course -- a loyal, intelligent and energetic canine with plenty to offer the right owner.
Because the Cattle Collie Dog's parents are both herding breeds, you can expect your pup to grow into one very active canine. As well as lots of regular exercise, your dog will also relish regular mental challenges and will probably be happiest whenever they have an important job to do.
With this in mind, it's your job to continue finding new and interesting activities your Cattle Collie Dog will love. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Is walking not enough to satisfy your dog's exercise needs? Do you want to run with your Cattle Collie Dog but simply can't keep up with their cracking pace?
If so, you can give your dog the exercise they need and still enjoy plenty of quality time together by going for a bike ride. Cycling has much less impact on your body and will allow you to travel at a decent pace without putting in too much effort. Even better, your pooch will get a grrr-eat workout and will love running along beside you.
Here's what you need to do to enjoy a bike ride with your dog.
Hiking is a wonderful way to exercise an active dog. They get to cover more terrain than on your average daily walk, while they also get to experience a variety of new sounds and smells.
But if you want to give your pet even more of a challenge, you can increase the amount of weight they need to carry by fitting them out with a doggy backpack. Carrying a few extra pounds on the hike will give your dog an even better workout and tone a wide range of muscle groups.
Best of all, this is a simple activity that your dog will love.
Did you know that a humble muffin tin can do much more than help you bake delicious snacks? In fact, this vital piece of bakeware also plays a vital role in a brain-boosting canine game that offers a simple way to beat boredom on a rainy day.
The muffin tin game is suitable for dogs of all ages and breeds, and it's a paw-some choice for a highly intelligent pooch like your Cattle Collie Dog.
To top it all off, the game is quick, easy and cheap to set up -- who says you need to invest in expensive puzzle toys to keep your dog amused?
