They usually weigh between 20 and 30 pounds when they're fully grown, which makes them the perfect size to travel with or enjoy a number of other activities. They're known for being excellent dogs for families with small children, and their eager, happy, and affectionate nature will win your heart in no time. If you're looking for fun things to do with your Doxle, read on to learn about which activities suit them best and what you'll need to complete them!

Toys or Treats to Hide
Activity description
The Dachshund component of a Doxle makes them eager to hunt or chase. You can satisfy this need by playing a game of hide and seek in your home or your yard instead of allowing your pup to chase small animals. All you need to do is keep your Doxle in one spot while you hide toys or treats. Then, you'll lead your dog to the general area where you've hidden the items and allow your dog to sniff them out. Their reward is getting to eat the treat or play with the toy. This activity can be done in any weather, inside or outside, and it's a great way to occupy your dog for as long as you'd like!
Step
1
Keep your dog in one place
At first, you may need to keep your dog tethered in one spot with a leash while you hide toys or treats. Over time, you can train them to stay in one place while you hide items for them to seek. If your pup already knows how to "stay", this step will be a breeze!
Step
2
Hide toys or treats
When you're first teaching your dog to play hide and seek, choose easy locations to hide toys or treats. Hiding treats is the best way to train them, because the scent will help draw them to the right area. Eventually, you can get more creative with your hiding spots as your dog's skills progress.
Step
3
Allow your dog to seek
Let your dog off their leash or out of their "stay" position and guide them to the general area where you've hidden items. Reward them when they find the hidden items, and you can also teach them to sit and stay once they've located the item.

Activity description
Doxles are easy to travel with thanks to their size and adaptability. Spending a weekend (or even just a night!) camping with your pup is a great way to bond, and during your stay, you can hike, swim, or take part in other activities with your dog. Depending on where you camp, this can be an inexpensive excursion. Experienced campers or those with trailers might be comfortable camping in all kinds of weather, but if you're a beginner camper, it's probably best to plan your trips when the weather is sunny and warm. If you've never camped with your dog before, start with just a one-night experience to see how they tolerate it. Once you're both used to camping together, you can plan for longer adventures!
Step
1
Find dog-friendly campgrounds
Research dog-friendly campgrounds to find the best place to camp with your dog. During your research, you'll find out if your dog must be on a leash at all times during your camping trip or if there are off-leash areas. You'll also find out what kind of dog-friendly activities you can enjoy in and around the campground and if there are additional fees for bringing your dog.
Step
2
Pack for your camping trip
When you're packing for a camping trip with your dog, you'll want to bring the supplies they use on a daily basis, like food, water, bowls, any medications they take, a leash, a collar, and a toy. Be sure to bring a dog bed or something comfy for your pet to sleep on, and if your dog usually wears sweaters and the forecast calls for chilly weather, be sure to bring their outerwear too!
Step
3
Head off on a camping adventure
Now that you've picked a dog-friendly campground and packed for the event, you and your Doxle can venture out and set up camp! During your camping trip, be sure to offer your pet lots of water and to follow the pet rules enforced by the campground. And of course, have a pawsome time!
