Introduction

The Dachsi Apso is a hybrid dog. It is a mixture of two parent breeds - the Dachshund and the Lhasa Apso. The Dachsi Apso is great with small children, so you can incorporate your entire family in carrying out activities with your dog. In fact, this very sociable pup is happy to play with almost anyone! The Dachsi Apso loves to play - you can engage this highly intelligent dog in games that stimulate the mind as well as engage them in physical activity. Your pal will love taking short, brisk walks with you, naturally! Two quick daily trips around the neighborhood will suffice for your designer pup.

Activity description
The Dachshund parent is a hunter, a chewer, and a digger by instinct. It is possible that this gene is also passed on to the Dachsi Apso hybrid. Regardless, all puppies enjoy chewing (and chewing relieves the pain of teething in young dogs). Choose a number of different toys which will provide your furry family member with the ability to chew and hunt as well. Next, you can set up an area in your home using old pillows and towels that satisfies your pup's desire to dig. (You can also set up a little sandy area outdoors if you'd like.) These toys will help your Dachsi Apso to curb boredom and stay out of mischief.
Step
1
Food puzzle toys
A food puzzle toy is great for the dog that likes to chew. This can be attributed to pups of any breed as their teeth begin to come in. There are a wide variety of food puzzle toys that one can purchase for their pup's chewing pleasure. You may need to show your pal how to manipulate the toy, and this is easily done with strategically placed peanut butter.
Step
2
Chew toy stimulation
The young pup is often troubled by adult teeth coming into their mouths. In addition, the Dachshund parent is particularly prone to the chewing of items. To prevent your furry buddy from chewing your shoes or something else rather important, purchase chew toys such as a Hurley bone or a Nylabone chew toy (which are more durable than normal chew toys).
Step
3
Squeaky toy attack
The Dachshund parent loves to "attack" squeaky toys. These toys help to satisfy the hunter in your Dachsi Apso. Often, you'll get just as much pleasure out of watching your playful pup interact with squeaky toys. Be careful that the toy is durable; has no stuffing and no toxic parts that can be ingested if your pup is able to tear into the toy.

Activity description
The Dachsi Apso is a happy little pup. One way to make your pal quite content is to present them with opportunities to socialize with other pups. You may have neighbors with dogs similar to your Dachsi Apso. If so, arrange for playdates at your local park. No close friends or neighbors with compatible dogs? Take a trip to the dog park, where canines can interact with other friendly dogs (often of the same size or at least in close proximity). Join an obedience class in which you can meet other well-mannered pets. The possibilities are limitless.
Step
1
Arrange a play date
Sometimes, owning a pup is a great way to meet others and make friends. Other times, you may have friends with dogs that are similar to the Dachsi Apso. If so, schedule regular playdates for your pup! You and your friends can take a trip to the park where you can let your pup play in safety.
Step
2
Pup-friendly outing
The dog park is a little more pup-friendly when compared to a regular park. The dog park may have enclosed areas in which you can turn your pup loose to play with other dogs of a similar size. You may also find obstacle courses and areas in which your dog can try their paw at agility exercises. Invite the other pups to join and imagine that you are putting on a dog show. Have fun and exercise your Dachsi Apso while spending time with friends.
Step
3
Obedience classes
If you live in an area in which you might be new, you might not know anyone well enough to schedule play dates. If you don't have a dog park in your area, you may not be able to take advantage of this play area. In this case, the solution will be to sign up for obedience classes. Check the American Kennel Club website for class information in your area and get ready for socialization and learning.

tennis ball for fetch

Activity description
The Dachsi Apso will enjoy games that you can play together as well as safe interactive toys that you can leave to entertain them should you have to learn the house to run errands or such. Engage your pup in several short (no more than fifteen minutes per session) times of play involving a tennis ball or other fetch toy. Grab a rope toy and engage in a game of tug-of-war. (However, be careful not to allow your exuberant buddy to feel that they are in total control.) Finally, you can find interactive toys with which you can engage your pup's mind at any time.
Step
1
Let's play fetch
One of the most common games to play with your pup is fetch. Grab a tennis ball that is proportionate to your pup's size (some pet supply stores will carry smaller tennis balls for small dogs). Have a fun play session at least twice a day with your Dachsi Apso. Keep these to about fifteen minutes minimum.
Step
2
Tug of war
Tug of war is a fun game to play with your pup. Grab a rope toy - remember to be size-appropriate when selecting the rope toy. Let your Dachsi Apso grab a hold of the rope toy and pull. Sometimes you'll need to let your pup "win," but other times, you will need to stop the game if you feel your pup is becoming too aggressive.
Step
3
Interactive toys
Interactive toys can provide the user with a great deal of fun when the owner has to be away. There are some ball toys that provide interaction and allow for stimulating entertainment for a pup that is home while you run errands. Often, dogs figure out quite easily how to play with these toys and will play until they absolutely tire of them.

More Fun Ideas...

Go Fetch

Like most other dogs, your Dachsi Apso will enjoy a good game of fetch. Try to keep the Dachsi Apso from jumping so as not to injure their elongated spine.

Walking

The Dachsi Apso prefers walking around the neighborhood with you for regular activity. Break walks up into two fifteen-minute sprints around the neighborhood.

Conclusion

The Dachsi Apso really is the best of two breeds combined together! This hybrid dog has the tenacity of the Dachshund parent and the sweetness and playfulness of the Lhasa Apso parent. Your Dachsi Apso can go most anywhere that you want to go; they will enjoy games, walking, and generally spending time with their family during activity.
