Introduction

Golden Retriever-Siberian Husky mixes are large, loveable creatures. They are called Goberians, and they have become popular for their unique look and friendly personalities. Taking traits from both parent breeds, these beautiful dogs are known for being intelligent, active, and eager to please. As very active dogs, Goberians are great pets for those who like to get out and do a lot of different activities. If you have a Goberian, you are probably used to be pulled around by your furry companion. We have a few suggestions for activities that will help you stimulate your dog both mentally and physically.

Since Goberians have a lot of energy, they are the perfect running partner for their owner. There is no need for you to search around for an accountability partner when you have one licking your toes already. Plus, if you aren't already a runner, the two of you can build up your endurance together. Running gives you the opportunity to explore the world, and your dog loves to explore, too! Goberians will enjoy being outdoors and exploring the neighborhood with you. As you increase your distance, there will be even more to explore for your Goberian, so get out there and put some miles on your legs.

Step
1
Leash (and shoe) up
Slip on your favorite running shoes and get your dog leashed and ready to go. For most dogs, it is easier to use a harness than a leash during runs. Harnesses will prevent neck and throat injuries during your run. You might see what works best for your dog and go from there.
Step
2
Start your run
Once you are suited up, it is time to hit the road. Run in places that are safe for you and your dog. It is best to stay off the roads, so choose areas with sidewalks or find a walking trail in your area. If it is dark outside when you run, be sure to wear reflective gear and put something on your dog to keep them visible as well.

Activity description

Many dogs love to swim. It is a great activity for active dogs when it is too hot outside for running and playing for extended periods of time. It is also a great workout for dogs without putting a lot of stress on the joints, which makes it ideal for elderly dogs. During your swim time, you and your dog can just relax in the cool water, swim and splash around, or play with toys. Doggie pool parties are also a lot of fun! Since not all dogs enjoy swimming, it is very important that you never force your dog to swim if they are uncomfortable.

Step
1
Test the waters
If your dog has never been swimming before, you need to make sure you are being safe. The instinct comes naturally for most dogs, but you should start slowly and with a lifejacket on. Don't force your dog to swim, especially not the first time in the water.
Step
2
Splash around
If your dog enjoys being in the water, you can then let them swim on their own. You should always stay nearby, and you should continue using the lifejacket if you are in deep water, but you can let your dog swim without holding on.
Step
3
Break out the toys
Goberians often love to play in the water, which makes water toys extremely valuable for a Goberian owner. These toys float and are safe for use in water. Play fetch with your dog in the pool or at the lake with these fun toys.

Activity description

Explore the great outdoors with your Goberian on a hike. Dogs are naturally curious creatures, and they love to see and do all kinds of new things. As long as you aren't going on extremely difficult hikes, there is no reason that you can't bring your Goberian with you. Special care should be taken when hiking with your dog. This might not be the best activity for humans and dogs if the humans don't have a lot of experience hiking. You might want to practice a little before bringing your dog with you. You should also be sure that you aren't choosing terrain that could easily cause injury to your dog.

Step
1
Find an appropriate trail
Before you can go hiking, you need to find a trail to explore. If you and your pooch are beginners, you don't want to choose a location that will be too difficult for you. Find something made for hikers in your experience level and map out a trail for you and your pup!
Step
2
Prepare for the big event
Even a short hike is kind of a big deal for your Goberian. You need to make sure that you have all the necessary supplies. Bring lots of water, especially if it is hot outside. You should have a backpack that includes first aid kits for both you and your dog, a phone, and any other supplies you think you are going to need.
