Introduction

The Chesador is a large, high-energy pooch. This pup is a cross between the Labrador Retriever and the Chesapeake Bay Retriever. Families or individuals living in a home with a spacious yard will find this sporting dog to be a furrific companion. They're smart and eager to please their owners. Your furry pal will likely play well with children and get along with other animals in the household. Provide your pooch with at least 60 to 90 minutes of activity a day. Some of their favorite activities include swimming, hiking, running, fetching, and playing with other canines at the local dog park.

Activity description
Your pup's instincts make dock diving a pawtastic sport for Fido. In this activity, your furry pal learns to leap off the end of a pier in pursuit of a favored toy. Your pooch will enjoy the physical and mental stimulation when they participate in the event. A bonus is that the swimming portion of the workout offers low-impact exercise for your companion's joints. Unless you have an indoor venue, you'll need weather conditions that are warm enough for your pooch to get in the water. Once your four-footed friend understands the mechanics of the activity, find an event where you and your dog can compete.
Step
1
Swim training
With a retriever, the first step should be effortless. You'll want to make sure that your pooch likes to swim. Take Fido to a pool or lake and let them splash around and have some fun. Then, introduce a water toy and toss it into the water for your pal to retrieve.
Step
2
Jump training
Now you're ready to teach Fido how to jump into a dock diving pool. Introduce your pal to the water and let them get in for a dip. Show your pooch the exit ramp. Next, bring them on the dock, show them the toy, and toss it in the tank. Let your pal go after the item.
Step
3
Practice and compete
Once your pal knows what to do, you can practice. At first, you'll want to give your pup a short running distance before the end of the dock. As Fido's skills improve, let them start further back and jump farther to get the toy. Then you'll be ready to find an event and compete against other teams.

Activity description
After you and your four-footed friend complete beginner's obedience, you'll need to go back over commands like come and sit. You can make review time fun for everyone by playing round robin recall. This activity allows you to sharpen your pal's responsiveness when you call them. Get together a group of friends or family members and head out to the back yard with your crew. Let everyone spread out and take turns calling Fido. Reinforce your pooch's compliance with praise and yummy treats. Your fur-baby will get exercise as they run from person to person. The game also lets them socialize with people.
Step
1
Preparation
To play round robin recall with your pooch, you'll need an open space. The back yard or a field is ideal, but a big recreation room or pet-friendly gym can also work. Schedule a time when other people are available to join you and Fido. Ask family members or friends that your pup already knows.
Step
2
Playtime
When you get to your play place, let the humans spread out. Each person should be about 15 to 20 feet from anyone else. One individual starts by calling Fido. When your pooch obeys, they get praise and a treat. Then another person calls your pup and rewards their responsiveness. Continue to summon your furry pal back and forth.

Activity description
There are going to be days when you and your pooch can't exercise outdoors due to inclement weather. If you teach your pal how to walk or run on a treadmill, you can still help them burn off excess energy. The key to training is to start slow with Fido. Let them get used to the machine before you ask them to get on it. Then you can build up to the desired speed over time. Remember to stay with your pooch while they're working out. Also, when you're planning your purchases, make sure to get equipment that fits your dog's stride length.
Step
1
Adjustment time
Before you teach your pup how to use a treadmill, let them get used to it. Spend time walking or jogging on the machine while your pooch is in the room. That way they'll adjust to the sound. Next, put a leash on your pup and lead them onto the machine while it is off. Offer treats and encouragement to get them to stand on the belt.
Step
2
Training time
When your pal willingly stays on the treadmill, it's time to add motion. Turn the belt on to a low speed. Stay in front of your dog and encourage them to walk forward as the machine starts to move. Spend a few minutes for your first session, and add time with each training period until you reach your goal.
Step
3
Use the treadmill
Once Fido walks on the treadmill comfortably, you'll have a rainy day option for exercise. Remember that you need to stay with your pooch and hold the leash or harness. That way, if your pal stumbles, you'll be able to release their lead so that they don't choke or drag on the belt.
