The French Bulldog and West Highland White Terrier would have to be two of the most adorable breeds in dogdom. So when you combine them together to create the French West Highlander, you end up with a personality-plus hybrid that makes a wonderful family companion.
Of course, if you welcome one of these dogs into your family, you'll need to find ways to indulge your dog's curious nature and need for exercise. Happily, there are plenty of paw-some activities and adventures you can enjoy with your French West Highlander, so you should never be short of things to do with your furry friend.
No matter what breed of dog you own, mental stimulation is crucial to your pet's general wellbeing. A dog with a job to do is happy and fulfilled, and will also be more tired and content at the end of the day.
If you can make regular training sessions part of your daily routine, you'll go a long way towards providing all the mental stimulation your pooch needs. Once you've mastered the basics of obedience training, you might want to move onto training a few clever tricks.
Teaching your dog to fetch the TV remote is one of the best -- not only is it a rewarding challenge for your furry friend, it means less hard work for you. Here's what you need to do.
It's a sunny day and you're trying to think of a fun outdoor adventure to enjoy with your dog. You could go for a walk or take a trip to the dog park, but you do both of those activities all the time.
So for something a little different, why not go fly a kite with your furry friend? This is a paw-some way to get outside and enjoy the fresh air with your dog, and maybe help them get some exercise at the same time. It'll offer a fun and interesting experience for your dog, and they'll love the chance to spend some time with you.
If you live in a cold-climate region, chances are you get well and truly sick of seeing snow by the time winter ends each year. But if you live somewhere a little warmer, your dog is missing out on one of the all-time great canine experiences -- romping in the snow.
Running, jumping, sniffing and playing in the fluffy white powder is something most dogs love, and something every dog owner loves watching. So if your dog has never seen snow, why not plan a dog-friendly vacation to let them experience it for the very first time?
Here's how to plan the paw-fect snow adventure.
