The Doxie-Chin might enjoy being outdoors, but there will be times that you won't be able to play outside. In addition, the Doxie-Chin can't be allowed to get overheated or face health issues, so planning activities that you can perform together year-round will keep your dog happy and healthy. One of the best ways to work off nervous energy indoors is to play with an interactive toy. These keep the dog's mind alert, which is a great alternative when physical exercise just isn't possible. Furthermore, indoor activities promote a bond between you and your canine companion, which benefits both of you.
