Dogs are some of the most loving and compassionate creatures in the world. It is no secret that they can bring a smile to people’s faces and make them feel loved. While you get the most out of your pooch, you can help spread your dog’s love to strangers, particularly those who need it the most, through animal-assisted activities. AAAs, as the name suggests, are a variety of activities that make use of animals to provide therapeutic, educational, recreational and/or motivational benefits and to help improve one’s quality of life. These activities are held in different settings and conducted by trained professionals or volunteers. By having your dog participate in an AAA, you are allowing them to make a positive impact in the lives of those with special needs. 

Step
1
Get your dog registered
If you have plans to make your dog a volunteer, the first step you have to take is to get them registered. What’s good about AAAs is that they do not discriminate based on breed; all kinds of dogs, whether purebred or hybrids, are welcome to become volunteers as long as they have the right personality and temperament. There are numerous national organizations where your dog can get registered, including Therapy Dog Internationals, Pet Partners and American Kennel Club.
Step
2
Undergo formal training
Once you have registered with your chosen organization and have submitted all the necessary requirements, the next step would be to go through a course offering training. In here, you will learn the techniques needed in AAA. Moreover, this training will help you determine certain things such as the suitable environment for your dog.
Step
3
Volunteer with your pooch
When you are done with your training and have received your certificate of completion, you and your dog can officially start with volunteer work. More often than not, the organization you are working with can help you get placement in some establishments where they believe your dog can best thrive. You may also look up volunteering opportunities online and find one that you would like to participate in.

Puzzle Toys
Activity description

All dog owners know that physical stimulation is a crucial part of any dog’s routine. However, it should be noted that mental stimulation is just as, if not more important. More than the physical exercise, you need to find ways to get your dog’s screws turning and to keep them from getting bored. Not doing so can lead to lots of display of destructive behavior such as biting, chewing and other forms of aggression. Among the best ways to help keep your dog occupied is through puzzle games. There is a huge selection of these toys to choose from, all of which can definitely enhance your dog’s mental health. 

Step
1
Choose a toy
With all the puzzle games to choose from, it can be quite overwhelming to pick one. Different personalities and attributes can play a role in dictating the best type of puzzle game or toy. Generally, Peagles are known for being clever dogs. Thus, you may want to look for a toy that can challenge your dog’s intellect. Most of these toys are available in both physical pet stores and in online shops.
Step
2
Teach the technique
Once you have bought the game of your choosing, the next step would be to set it up and teach your dog how to play. There are times when your dog can figure out the game after some trial and error. However, some toys (for example, food-dispensing games) require supervision from you. Guide your dog through the toy and make sure that they are playing the game correctly.

Activity description

Perhaps one of the coolest things about having a dog is the fact that you can teach them a variety of impressive tricks. An example of such a trick is getting your dog to skate. It is very likely that you have seen a video or two of some canines grinding out on a skateboard, causing you to wonder if that is even possible or just a camera trick. Believe it or not, getting your dog to skate is simpler than it looks, especially for Peagles, a hybrid known for their trainability. It does, however, take a lot of patience and perseverance on your end. Your training sessions, which can take place in your home or outside, also double as bonding time. 

Step
1
Lure your dog to the skateboard
The first step to teaching your dog how to skate is to get them interested in the skateboard. Dogs often take a liking to new things; they like to observe and sniff on objects that are foreign to them. However, there are some that might need extra motivation. In this case, what you can do is place your dog’s favorite treats on the skateboard. This will spark their interest and will help them associate the board with something positive. Just make sure the skateboard is stationary by either placing it on a carpet or putting the wheels on lock.
Step
2
Practice the cue word
When your dog has developed an attachment to the board, the next thing you have to practice is how to get them on and off the board by command. For this, you will need to establish a cue word. For instance, you can use the command “step”. The key here is to be consistent and to use just the one word that you have chosen during practice. Do this repeatedly a few minutes a day until your pooch understands what you are trying to achieve.
Step
3
Add some movement
The last, and probably the most difficult, is getting the skateboard to move. Initially, what you should do is push the board yourself at a slow and steady pace. Make sure that your dog remains calm while the board is moving and reward them for their behavior. Another trick would be to tie a string to the board and gently pull it with you as you walk. Once your dog gets used to a moving board, you can then train them to push the board on their own. To do this, take one of your dog’s paws and place it on the floor. As your pooch tries to get back on the board, the chances are they will push off the ground, which will get the board to slightly move. Keep on repeating this and use lots of positive reinforcement until your dog understands what you want to happen. This can take days or even weeks but the reward of seeing your dog skate will be worth the effort!

Coffee Run

While technically not on the menu, most Starbucks serve “puppuccinos” for their dog-loving customers and their four-legged companions if you ask. This drink is simply whipped cream placed in a cup. Just make sure that your dog is tolerant of dairy before getting them one. 

Netflix and Nap

Even though Peagles can be an active dog, they also enjoy some downtime with their owners. Find the most comfortable spot on your couch. Put on a movie (it’s a definite plus if you choose a canine-centric film) and watch with your best buddy. When the film ends, squeeze in some shuteye while snuggling with your pooch.

Conclusion

Clever, cute and compassionate – these 3 C’s are the best words to describe the Peagle. This designer dog is a joy to have around and can brighten the days of anyone they encounter. However, owning a Peagle is so much more than having a pet; it means having a new family member that you have to love and care for.
