A hybrid breed created by crossing the affectionate Chinese Crested with the fun-loving Pekingese, the Crested Peke is a loving and devoted family pet. This is a breed that adores human company and will want to be with you no matter what you're doing, so it's important that you always make an effort to include your Crested Peke in as many family activities as possible.
Of course, you can also plan activities and games specifically to entertain and amuse your furry friend. This is a great way to give your dog lots of exercise and mental stimulation, not to mention help them form a stronger bond with you.
Here are three paw-some activities your Crested Peke should love.
Meeting friends for coffee or brunch at a cafe is a wonderful and relaxing experience. But if you've left your Crested Peke home alone so you can go out socializing, you might be too busy wondering what your dog is up to without you to fully enjoy the experience.
So rather than making your dog stay behind, why don't you arrange to have your next coffee catch-up at a dog-friendly cafe? This way you'll get to bring your dog along so they can join in the fun, and your pooch will love all the mental stimulation this exciting adventure will provide.
And who knows -- they might even get to enjoy a tasty snack or two.
Taking your dog for a walk is one of those quintessential canine activities that you and your pooch can enjoy together. But sometimes a dog walk can be something a little more than just a way to get some exercise, as is the case with charity fundraising walks.
As paw-some animal rescue groups and animal welfare organizations across the country look for ways to generate financial support and raise awareness for their work, many of them have started running annual fundraising dog walks.
These wonderful days offer a chance for you and your pooch to take a stroll, meet lots of other dogs and their owners, and raise much-needed funds for a very good cause. Here's how.
No matter what breed of dog you own, one of the most important skills your pooch will need to learn is how to settle. This will ensure that whenever your dog finds themselves in an exciting situation with lots of interesting distractions, such as when guests arrive at your house, they will settle down and become calm if you ask them to.
And that's where this game comes in. The basic idea is to work your pooch up into a super excited state, and then encourage them to settle down as quickly as possible.
It's fun, great exercise, and something the whole family can enjoy together.
