A cross between the Chihuahua and the Cocker Spaniel, the Chi-Spaniel is one undeniably adorable hybrid breed. Sweet-natured and full of love, this lively little breed gets on well with people and pets of all ages (provided they're socialized from a young age).
However, the Chi-Spaniel isn't a breed that can just be left in a backyard and forgotten about. These cute and cuddly canines need plenty of human interaction to stay as happy and health as possible, while regular exercise and mental stimulation are also important to their overall wellbeing.
The good news is that there's a huge range of outings, games and activities you can share with your furry friend to give them all the attention and stimulation they need. Here are a few of the best.
Sometimes dogs love exciting adventures and creative game ideas, but often they'll be just as happy enjoying a simple play session at home. If you're looking for a way to give your pooch (and yourself) some exercise and to simply have a bit of fun together, a good old-fashioned game of "chasies" should do the trick.
This simple game is one you can play inside (provided you've got sufficient space) or out, so it's a good one to have up your sleeve whenever you've got a bored and energetic dog on your hands.
Here's what you need to do to play a fun game of chase.
Do you have trouble getting your dog to settle when they meet new people, or when they get into that manic state of over-excitement? Are you looking for a simple game that can help teach your pet how to control their impulses and settle on command?
If you answered yes to these questions, this is the game for you. Red Light, Green Light offers a chance for you to get some exercise and be a bit silly, but at the same time should offer a stimulating mental challenge for your furry friend. You can also play it inside or out and get the whole family involved.
Here's how it works.
What could possibly be better than spending a day wine tasting and maybe purchasing a few bottles to take home? Doing it all with your dog by your side, of course -- so keep this activity in mind when you're looking for something deliciously entertaining to do with your Chi-Spaniel.
If you've spent much time visiting wineries near you or in other parts of the country, you may have noticed an increasing number of wineries operating a dog-friendly policy. Make your way to the cellar door and you're likely to come across a content canine enjoying a fun outing with their people, keeping them company while they give their taste buds a treat.
So if this sounds like your idea of a paw-some activity to share with your pet, here's what you need to do.
