A hybrid breed created by crossing the Kerry Blue Terrier and the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, the Kerry Wheaten is a loyal and affectionate pet. Alert and intelligent, these dogs love to live an active lifestyle and will always enjoy a game or two with their family.
But if they're not given enough exercise or regular mental challenges, Kerry Wheatens will quickly become bored and unhappy. With this in mind, you'll need to come up with plenty of interesting and entertaining activities to keep your pooch on their toes.
Happily, there are plenty of simple activities your canine companion will love to enjoy with you. Here are a few of the best.
Regular walks probably already form an important part of your dog's daily fitness regime — after all, they're an easy way to get some exercise and develop a stronger bond with your pooch. However, you can make your walks much more exciting and interesting for your pet by incorporating some training into your daily stroll.
This will ensure that your dog gets plenty of mental stimulation, something which is critically important to your Kerry Wheaten's overall wellbeing. It can also help you mix things up a little bit and add some variety into your pet's normal routine.
Here's what you'll need to do.
Kerry Wheatens are intelligent creatures that love being given a job to do. They also love regular play sessions with their humans, which is why a simple game of hide and seek should offer plenty of entertainment for your furry friend.
This is another game that offers grrr-eat mental stimulation for your pet, plus it also taps into the strong retrieval instincts of many Kerry Wheatens.
All you need to play this particular game is some spare time and your dog's favorite toy. You can also play it inside or out, depending on the weather, and make it as easy or as difficult as you want.
Your Kerry Wheaten needs plenty of daily exercise to stay happy and healthy, but they also require a whole lot of human interaction and companionship for their general wellbeing. If you can make your pet feel like part of the family, this can go a long way to ensuring that they'll be a content and well-mannered companion.
With this in mind, a family game of backyard baseball is a paw-some way to entertain your pooch. Kerry Wheatens make great outfielders, and chasing a ball will let them use their retrieval instincts as well as get some great exercise.
But the best part of all is that they get to spend time with their humans!
