When the Golden Retriever and the Chinese Shar-Pei are bred together, they conceive a fascinating hybrid dog known as the Golden Pei. This designer dog’s size can range from medium to large, depending on which genes they inherit more. The Golden Retriever is renowned for being one of the most affectionate dog breeds while the Shar-Pei is a hopelessly devoted breed. As a result, the Golden Pei is generally good-natured, caring and loyal. However, this breed may exhibit a hint of stubbornness and spirited temperament. Thus, they will need an owner that can remain calm and patient with them throughout their training and overall growth.
Although the Golden Retriever is athletic and loves to move around, the Chinese Shar-Pei is the exact opposite. As a result, Golden Peis require just a moderate amount of activity for them to stay healthy and fit. A classic dog game that remains a favorite among dog owners is Frisbee. This timeless activity is always entertaining for your pooch. Not only that, Frisbee stimulates both your dog’s body and mind; they run around and think about how to make the catch. This can be even more enjoyable if your Golden Pei takes on the “retrieving” skills of their Golden Retriever parent.
A family outing is always a grand time, especially if you get to bring your dog with you. Dogs typically like being in new environments and seeing new places so it only makes sense to bring your four-legged friend with you out on your trips every once in a while. You can never go wrong with a visit to the lake. Here, there are plenty of opportunities for fun activities, including swimming, hiking, water activities, camping and picnics, among others. There is no doubt that your Golden Pei will appreciate spending some quality time with you while enjoying different activities at the same time.
Whether you are a cyclist who loves dogs or a dog lover who would like to incorporate cycling into your routine, one thing is for sure: bike rides are more enjoyable when your best furry friend tags along for the ride. What’s good about cycling with your dog is that it serves as a workout for them, which is an upgrade from a simple walk in the park or neighborhood. It is also a creative way to spend time with your pooch without having to compromise your personal time. All you need for this activity is a bike, a leash or harness and you are good to go.
Dog treat puzzles are the best investment a dog owner could make. Not only are they total boredom busters; they also help sharpen your dog’s mind and boost their smarts. One of the best toys of this kind are the ones designed by Nina Ottosson. They are available in most toy shops and also in online stores.
Is your dog bored and demanding some attention? A good way to kill time without having to leave the house or exert any effort is by playing a game of sock tug-of-war. Simply take an old sock and get your dog bite it while you hold on to the other end. Gently tug back and forth with your dog.
