Floating soap bubbles have been fascinating to people of all ages for a very long time, with some of the first illustrations to depict bubble blowing going back hundreds of years to the late 1700s when Jean Simeon Chardin painted a piece entitled Soap Bubbles, depicting a young man leaning out a window and blowing a bubble with a pipe. They appear nearly mystical with the way that the colors swirl across the surface of the bubbles and the elegant dancing movements that they make as they float in the air. The entertainment value of bubbles is not lost upon your canine companion either, and with just a little encouragement they will eagerly chase bubbles for quite some time, not only entertaining both you and the dog but also giving your dog an opportunity to get both physical and mental exercise in a new and fun way.
While it takes many years of training for a dog to earn the title of service dog, canines with the correct temperament for the job can sometimes become therapy dogs in just a few months. The job of a therapy dog is to make visits to nursing homes, hospitals, and schools in order to provide comfort and unconditional love to those in need. In some cases, these dogs even visit the sites of tragedies, helping people to better cope with traumatic situations and their aftermath. Eurasier dogs are generally intelligent and sensitive, with a desire to please and a dignified demeanor making them typically well-suited to this type of job. There are some fees that are associated with training and certification, depending on the amount of training needed and who you go through this can range from fifty dollars to a few hundred.
Although Canine Freestyle Dance is a relatively new sport, first exhibited in the late 1980s, it has gained a great deal of popularity worldwide, and the first official freestyle organization was formed in British Columbia in 1991. This is a team activity in which the dog and handler perform to music, with the dog either heeling in time to the music or combining heelwork with additional commands and tricks. The carefully choreographed routines can range from the fairly simple to the very complex and performers can choose either dramatic or comedic pieces. The most commonly seen dogs are herding and companion type dogs, but Eurasiers are very intelligent, enjoy learning, and bond closely with their families with their owners, making them an excellent choice of partner for this entertaining dog sport.
