The Lhasa Apso and the Poodle are two of the most well-known dog breeds in the world, both of which are beloved by many dog lovers. But did you know that when you cross these two dog breeds, you get one of the most adorable designer dogs? The combination of these two is called the Lhasapoo. While the hybrid is quite recent, Lhasapoos have already built a good impression among dog enthusiasts because of their cute appearance, loving personality, moderate exercise and maintenance requirements and high levels of intelligence. A great choice for an apartment, condo or home setting, the Lhasapoo is a top choice if you want a buddy to have around.
Both the Lhasa Apso and the Poodle rely heavily on their appearances; owners of these breeds regularly have them groomed and maintained. Hence, it should be no surprise that the Lhasapoo has similar grooming requirements. The challenging part, however, is leaving your furbaby in the groomer or doggy spa. Lhasapoos can get quite attached to their owners and, as such, they can be timid when left behind with strangers. A solution to this would be to do the grooming yourself. Regularly grooming your dog presents a lot of benefits; your dog stays clean and healthy and you get to grow closer and develop your trust and bond with each other.
The day that your dog was born is one of the most special occasions of the year and one that you need to celebrate. The best way to commemorate this wonderful day is to throw a lovely birthday party. This doggy party will not only be celebratory; it will also double as a way for your pooch to socialize with other people and canines. While your dog might not understand what is going on and won’t be able to interact with their “guests”, they will surely feel loved as long as they are surrounded by the people closest to them. Getting to eat whatever they want is just the icing on the (birthday) cake!
Rollerblading is an activity that has been around for decades but still remains a fun and entertaining activity for people of all ages. Rollerblading enthusiasts live for the mornings when they can strap on their wheels, head out and skate to their heart’s content. To make things more interesting, you can go and bring your dog on your skating excursion. This activity will serve as an amazing exercise routine for both you and your pooch. Furthermore, it also serves as an enjoyable quality time together. However, keep in mind that this activity is no walk in the park and that it takes time to train your dog to go rollerblading with you.
Canine musical freestyle is a form of dancing that involves you and your dog. In this activity, you and your dog dance to a song and certain choreography. It’s a great way for your pooch to bond with you and to blow off steam at the same time. It is also a fun activity that you can do regularly together.
One of the best ways to cool off on a hot summer day is by getting some ice cream. You and your dog can both savor this sweet treat. Just visit your local ice cream shop and get your usual flavor while your dog gets plain old vanilla. Bonus points if the shop has an outdoor seating area so you and your dog can enjoy your ice cream together.
The Lhasapoo is a wonderful hybrid dog that has seized the hearts of many dog enthusiasts because of the many great attributes that they possess. They love to be in the spotlight and are not afraid to show it. Smart, good-natured, vigorous and terribly endearing, this breed can bring so much joy to the lives of their owners and families.
