Agility training can be a fun way to teach your dog new tricks. Whether your dog is large or small, agility classes can help your dog release energy. Finding a place that teaches dogs agility can be challenging, but once you find a place, you will enjoy watching your Huskita learn how to go through the course. Alternatively, or as a precursor to a course, you can set up a practice course in your yard to get your energetic Huskita used to traversing obstacles. At home obstacles can include hurdles fashioned from wood or PVC pipe, jumps using a hula hoop, and a kiddie tunnel for crawling through. While taking a course will be more costly than at-home practice, your pup may learn more quickly with a trainer and may feel more confident when they see other dogs enjoying themselves.
If you like to bike, why not take your Huskita with you on your next excursion? These athletic dogs will enjoy running with you as you bike around your neighborhood or along nature trails. The best part is that you get to spend quality time with your dog without spending a lot of money. Make sure that you are aware of your dog's limits. You should always start out slower, taking shorter trips to get your pooch used to running as you bike. Start with a mile or less to help your Huskita's paw pads to get stronger. When you start to go on longer journeys, make sure that you bring water for your dog. You may need to take a few breaks to allow for your pup to drink.
Get a toy out and get ready to pull. With your Huskita on one end of a rope or other toy, you will both be tired after a long game of tug of war. Be sure that you use a toy that can't easily be pulled apart and ingested to keep your pooch safe.
Many dogs love swimming when it is warm outside. If you have your own pool or live near a lake, pond, or beach, you can take your Huskita swimming with relative ease. If you don't have these opportunities, however, many local pools offer end-of-season doggy swim days that don't cost a lot of money. When you take your dog swimming, don't rush it, especially if it is their first time trying it.
