French Pins are a mixed breed dog that is a combination of a French Bulldog and a Miniature Pinscher. Since both of these dog breeds are small, you can expect to have a fairly tiny pooch on your hands if you have a French Pin. French Pins are also called Frenschers. These dogs may have breathing troubles due to their short, flat noses like French Bulldogs and other Bulldog breeds, so you should take caution when spending time out in the heat. We have compiled a list of activities that will be safe for your French Pin even if they have breathing troubles.
For an easy activity that your French Pin is sure to love, consider hide and seek! This easy game will keep your French Pin interested, while getting a little bit of exercise and mental stimulation. Hide and seek is a fun game for dogs, because they are rewarded with a little treat when they find it in its hiding place with their nose. Hide and seek is an activity that you enjoy with your French Pin without worrying about their breathing or heat sensitivity, which is why so many people love it as an activity to take part in with their pooch.
If you are looking for an easy way to get your French Pin a little extra exercise (without putting them in any danger), look no further than tug of war. This fun game requires only a toy and another member of your family. You should choose a toy that gives both you and your pooch a little room to grab onto it. Rope toys make for great tug of war toys as they are long and have knots in them that make gripping the toy and pulling easy for both parties. As with all activities for French Pins, be sure to monitor your pup's breathing throughout the game.
Dogs can be very social creatures. Your French Pin may be dying to meet some new friends. Meet this need by making a trip to a local dog park. Your French Pin will love seeing and playing with all of the other dogs, and you will feel good about the fact that they are getting proper exercise. Since there are risks associated with heat for this breed of dog, be sure that you either go early or late to make sure that your dog doesn't overheat. Be sure to always bring water with you just in case there isn't any provided at the dog park.
