A Combai Boarhund is an active, alert, and willful dog that can be stubborn but adapts well to family life. They love playing, going on hunting trips, hanging out with children and adults, and being the pack leader. Traditionally in India, people use Combais as guard dogs due to their aloofness with strangers and fierce loyalty to their property. If they need to, they can attack and fight to the death. Now, however, people keep Combais as family pets but as guard dogs too. They can tell the difference between someone who is welcome and who isn’t. The complex nature of a Combai means you need to be particular with what activities you include in their routine, but these below could be an excellent place to start.
The Combai has a natural tendency to guard their property – all in the name of protecting you. However, they defend in a way that comes naturally to them, not in the way that’s necessarily the best. Therefore, an activity you can partake in early on is property guarding. You can teach your Combai how to safeguard your property for the safety and sake of everyone living there. This free, sunny-day activity is relatively straightforward, and you can carry it out in ten-minute training sessions with a few treats in your pocket. Your Combai’s intelligence and fierce loyalty will mean you won’t have too many problems getting your dog to guard your property effectively.
In India and surrounding areas, a Combai’s role is to help during boar hunting. They alert the hunter to the prey by barking and trying to corner them. If you consider yourself to be a boar hunting expert, then why not invite your Combai along for the trip? While it’s expensive, challenging, and takes a full day to accomplish, it’s time you get to spend with man’s best friend who’s bound to learn some helpful tips. What’s more, they’re naturally adept in a harsh environment. Prepare their harness, leash, food, water, and a GPS collar, and head out for a successful boar hunting session.
As most people know, the Combai is an immensely strong breed that can fight their way out of any problem in which they find themselves. If you want to test their strength to the limits, then engage them in a game of tug of war. Such a game makes an excellent rainy-day activity when you can’t get outdoors. However, you are going to need a solid tug rope and around ten minutes to spare. You may also struggle to come out triumphant! This affordable activity will stimulate all your dog’s senses but may also leave you with very sore arms!
Combais love being outside, that’s their favorite activity. Even though they can seem lazy at times, as soon as they see their leash come out, they will be chomping at the bit to go outside and have fun. Set aside a few hours for a nature hike and make sure the weather forecast is satisfactory. The varied terrain and new environment will ensure they have the best day out.
Combais are intelligent dogs, but they can also be stubborn. Training may not be something you can do on your own. Set aside an hour each week and see an expert. You can join a class, so your pooch learns valuable social skills, or you can get help and advice in a one-on-one session. Obedience training can be beneficial when you are teaching them how to hunt or guard your property.
If you own a Combai, then you have an exceptionally rare dog – they are not your average companion pet in the United States. However, if you do, you will never be bored. This pawsitively delightful pooch will test your patience, challenge you, and cause you to have to think outside the square with activities to entertain them, but they will reward you ten-fold with loyalty and love at the same time. You can’t ask for much more than that.
