A hybrid breed developed from the Chinese Crested and the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, the Crested Cavalier is adorable and sweet-natured dog that loves spending time with its owners. While only small dogs, these cute canines nonetheless require plenty of exercise to stay in shape, as well as games and mental challenges to help their minds stay sharp.
As a result, Crested Cavaliers will be happy to tackle a wide range of activities alongside their people. Whether getting their heart rate up or spending a lazy evening cuddled up on the couch, there's plenty of easy and enjoyable things you and your pet can do together. Here are three paw-some ideas to get you started.
If you've lived somewhere for most or all of your life, you've probably never looked at your hometown through the eyes of a tourist. This is entirely understandable, but it can also mean that you and your dog are missing out on a chance to explore some of the best dog-friendly activities and attractions in your area.
So if you're looking for a fun and exciting way to entertain your pooch, treat them to a day of being a tourist in your hometown or city. With your dog by your side you can see all the biggest and best sights on offer near you, offering mental stimulation and quality bonding time for your dog.
Are you addicted to shopping? Are you looking for more ways to include your dog in your everyday activities? If so, you'll have a whole lot of fun if you take your pet with you on your next shopping trip.
Your dog will love the sights and sounds they'll encounter while helping you spend your money, and the chance to spend some one-on-one time with you will also put a smile on their face.
Depending on where you're going and how far you're planning on walking, you may prefer to help your pooch get around in a pet carrier, stroller, or shopping cart, rather than on a leash.
There's something about spending a day out on the water that can be wonderfully relaxing. Beautiful scenery, the rhythmic sound of waves lapping against the boat, the sun shining down from above — there's plenty to enjoy.
For dogs, a boat ride can also be a great way to experience something new, interesting, and exciting. This will mean plenty of mental stimulation for your dog as they see, smell, hear, and experience new things.
And you don't need to own a boat to treat your dog to an hour or more of cruising, so getting out on the water may actually be easier than you might think.
