The Dalmatian and the Labrador are two of the most loved and widely recognized dogs all over the United States and around the world. With this in mind, it's no great surprise that the hybrid breed created from crossing these two gorgeous canines, the Dalmador, is becoming an increasingly popular choice as a family pet.
With their family-friendly temperament, love of life and loving nature, these beautiful dogs make wonderful companions. However, every Dalmador needs plenty of exercise and interaction with their humans to ensure their wellbeing, so it's important to always treat your canine pal with new and exciting activities. Here are three great activities to get your Dalmador's tail wagging.
Whether burying toys and bones or trying to tunnel to the other side of the world, some Dalmadors just love to dig. And if boredom is a problem for your furry friend, they might use digging as a way to act out — digging up your carefully maintained garden is a surefire way to get attention.
If your dog is digging where you don't want them to, you might want to set up a designated digging zone in your backyard. With a little effort, you should be able to teach your pet to dig in this special spot and leave the rest of your flowers, plants, and shrubs undisturbed.
Your Dalmador needs a whole lot of regular exercise each and every day to stay as happy and healthy as possible. While there are plenty of simple ways to help your dog stay fit, it's easy to fall into a rut and just keep doing the same old thing with your pet day in, day out.
If you want to mix things up a bit and get your dog out of their usual routine, take them for a nature hike instead of your usual daily walk. This will not only give your dog a grrr-eat workout, it'll also expose them to new sights and interesting smells to investigate.
Here's how to plan a fun nature hike with your dog.
The dog's sense of smell is legendary, and Labradors are employed in a wide range of professions where they're encouraged to put their super-powered sniffing skills to good use. There's also a good chance that your Dalmador is quite a food-oriented pooch who is always on the lookout for their next meal or tasty treat.
If this sounds like your dog, they'll have a whole lot of fun embarking on this paw-some doggy treasure hunt. This activity allows your dog to use their sense of smell, follow a scent trail and put their brain to good use, all of which results in a tasty reward. Here's what you need to do.
