Introduction

The Japeke is a beautiful hybrid breed created by crossing the Japanese Chin with the Pekingese. Cute, cuddly and affectionate, this adorable little dog always has plenty of love to share with their human owners.

Japekes also have a famous mischievous streak, and they're always on the lookout for fun and adventure. With this in mind, a loving owner will need to keep finding new ways to keep their pooch entertained, stimulated and amused.

But that's where we can help. To help you cram more excitement and enjoyment into every day you share with your Japeke, here are three paw-some activities your canine pal will love.

Summer is a wonderful time of year to be a dog owner. When the sun is shining and the weather is warm, there are plenty of paw-some outdoor activities you and your dog can enjoy together.

But when the mercury really starts to rise and the weather goes from warm to hot, it's essential that your dog has plenty of ways to keep cool. And cooling down can be a whole lot of fun for you and your dog, especially if you decide to treat your canine pal to some special frozen treats made just for them.

Here's what you need to do.

Step
1
Freeze!
You don't need to be a gourmet chef to make frozen treats for your dog. The simplest option is to just freeze little bits of dog kibble in the middle of some ice cubes, but for that extra-special touch you can choose to freeze broth instead of water -- this flavor sensation will surely have your Japeke licking their lips.
Step
2
Enjoy
The hardest part of this activity is waiting for the treats to actually freeze. But once they're ready, they can prove to be a great little boredom buster for a hot canine. Your dog should love licking their way through the ice block to get to the tasty treat inside, while this should also help them escape the worst of the summer heat at the same time.

Activity description

When you own a small dog like a Japeke, visits to the dog park can often be a stressful experience. Unless there are separate areas for large and small dogs, your pint-sized pooch may be a little overwhelmed as they try to play and interact with a whole lot of much bigger dogs.

To overcome this problem, why not arrange a playdate with your pooch and another dog? This allows you to choose a dog that is not only a similar size to your pooch, but that you know will play nice. It's also a good excuse for you and the other dog's owner to do a little socializing of your own!

Step
1
Phone a friend
The most important part of the process is deciding which dog to invite to your puppy playdate. While it may be tempting to make your decision based on which owner you get along with the best, remember that your dog is the main focus of your activity, so you'll need to choose a dog that you know they get along with well. You'll also need to decide whether the playdate will take place at your house, which is convenient, or on the neutral territory of a nearby park.
Step
2
Play time
Once you've arranged a time and place to meet up, all that's left to do is let your dog have some fun with their four-legged friend. You might like to put out a few toys the dogs might like to play with, but it's often best to just sit back and let the pooches do their thing. Then you can enjoy a coffee, a chat and the joy of watching your pet simply be a dog for a while.

If you're looking for a unique way to get out and about with your Japeke and treat them to a truly memorable experience, this is the paw-fect activity for you.

Going to a festival with your dog is a simple but wonderful way for your pooch to get some exercise and mental stimulation as well as some one-on-one time with you. There are new sights, sounds and smells for them to explore, treats to taste, live entertainment to enjoy, and new people to meet.

So if you fancy treating your Japeke to a fun day at a festival, here's what you'll need to do.

Step
1
Find a festival
Outdoor festivals offer so much for you and your dog to enjoy, so check out events calendars for your town or city to find out what festivals are coming up. From arts and music festivals to summer concert series, food festivals and even pet-themed events, there are plenty of options to choose from. Just make sure that any festival you choose is dog-friendly.
Step
2
Plan ahead
Before the day of the festival arrives, check out the event program to see if there are any special demonstrations or performances you want to see. Are there any restrictions about bringing dogs, such as the length of the leash you'll need to use? Also make sure to pack all the essentials your pet will need, including a tasty treat or two and a portable water bowl.
Step
3
Get out there and enjoy it
The only thing left to do is soak in all the festival fun with your furry friend. There might be interesting or exciting demonstrations to watch, fresh produce to sample, merchandise to buy, music to listen to, and so much more. Alternatively, your pooch might be happiest just trotting along by your side and taking in all the unique sights, sounds and aromas the event has to offer.

Visit a Nursing Home

Training your pet to become a therapy dog can be a hugely rewarding experience. However, some nursing homes and assisted living facilities welcome well-behaved canine visitors even if they don't have therapy dog accreditation, so call some nursing homes in your area to find out if any residents would love a visit from your gorgeous Japeke.

Shopping Trip

The next time you head to the pet supply store to buy toys, treats or even clothes for your dog, take your Japeke along with you so they can help you pick out your purchases.

Conclusion

There are so many wonderful activities you can enjoy with your Japeke that it can be a little hard to know where to start. But don't worry -- your Japeke will be happy no matter what activity you choose. As long as they get to spend as much time with you as possible, your charming little canine companion will always have a smile on their face.
