Introduction

When you cross the Giant Schnauzer and the West Highland White Terrier, you get a Giant Wauzer. This medium-sized pooch makes a puptastic family dog. They're social and loyal with family members but may be wary of strangers. Because these pups tend to be very obedient and athletic, they can excel at agility sports. The parent breeds are both high-energy dogs, so you'll need to provide this canine with plenty of activity.  You should plan to offer your fur-baby about an hour of exercise each day. They love playing in the yard and going to the dog park. Other fun things to do with your Giant Wauzer include:

Participating in the sport allows you to continue to review the commands that you learn in beginner obedience. In Rally, you and your pal function as a team. You'll go through a series of 10 to 20 stations with instructive signs. At each stop, your pup will have to follow your directions to complete a task.

Activity description
The Terrier in your pooch probably likes to chase small animals. You can provide an outlet for their hunting instincts with the sport of lure coursing. In this activity, dogs chase a mechanized decoy as it loops around a field. Your pup will get plenty of exercise chasing their quarry.  Before you participate in an event, take your furry pal to the vet for a checkup. You'll want to know that Fido can handle the exertion. Then see if you can visit a lure coursing club and see it for yourself. If you ask, the group might let your pooch try out their system.
Step
1
Watch it
The best way to see if your pup will like lure coursing is to find a club and watch an event. Check with the group to see if you can bring your pal along. Find out about any muzzle requirements or other rules in advance. Watch the other dogs chasing the decoy around the field.
Step
2
Try it
Enroll your pooch in a lure coursing event. If you let the club know that it's Fido's first time, the group might let you set up a few practices. You'll also want to drill recalls with your pup so that they come back after their turn on the field. When the big day comes, your Giant Wauzer will have a doggone good time chasing the lure!

Activity description
The Giant Wauzer is an energetic pooch that can excel at agility exercises. One way that you can let your pup enjoy the sport is to design a back yard obstacle course. That way you and Fido can make use of it whenever you want. It doesn't have to cost a pile of money to build some equipment yourself. You can get specifications from the AKC and use materials like PVC pipe, pails or laundry baskets, orange cones, and a kid's play tunnel. With these items, you'll be able to simulate weave set up weave poles, hurdles, and tunnels for your pal's enjoyment.
Step
1
Build it
You can build some obstacles for Fido to enjoy in the back yard without spending a pile of money. Get PVC pipes and elbows, then get some instructions to make hurdles and weave poles. Use a child's collapsible tunnel for another fun challenge. If you want to add another option, get some planks to make a teeter-totter.
Step
2
Use it
Once you construct the equipment, set it up in the back yard. Teach Fido how to navigate each obstacle. Then you can put the different elements together in a course. Lead your pooch around the circuit a few times, and try mixing the order of the obstacles so that your furry pal doesn't get bored.
