Introduction

A cross between the Pekingese and the West Highland White Terrier, the Peka-A-West is a gorgeous and fun-loving breed. If you welcome one of these little dogs into your life, you can expect to always be kept on your toes by the breed's larger-than-life personality and love of adventure.

Of course, in order to keep your Peka-A-West as happy and healthy as possible, you'll also need to find new games, activities and outings you can enjoy with your furry friend. This should give your dog plenty of excellent outlets for their physical and mental energy, not to mention give them a good excuse to spend some quality time with you.

Halloween is a wonderful time of year to share with the whole family. Not just for kids, it's great fun for grown-ups as well -- and you can bet the whole family will love every second of this spooky celebration if your dog is allowed to join in the fun. 

Halloween pet parades are paw-some events where dog owners are encouraged to dress their pets up in fur-rightening costumes and parade them along in front of adoring crowds. It's paw-some entertainment for dogs and humans, and your dog will love receiving plenty of attention for their cute outfit.

Here's how you can take part in a Halloween pet parade.

Step
1
Find a parade
The first step is to do some research. In the weeks leading up to Halloween, search upcoming event calendars for details of any organizations running Halloween pet parades each year. Some of these events are designed to raise money for a pet charity or animal welfare group, but all are about having a whole lot of fun. When you've found a suitable event, register your dog and mark the date in your calendar.
Step
2
Get your pet's costume sorted
Now it's time to ask yourself a very important question: to buy or to DIY? You might be surprised by the sheer range of canine Halloween costumes you can buy -- do an online search and you'll be amazed by the number of results. Alternatively, you may decide that you want to craft your dog's costume from scratch. Whichever approach you choose, make sure your dog's outfit is comfortable and safe for them to wear (and that it looks as adorable as possible).
Step
3
Parade time!
Once your pet is all decked out in their Halloween finest, all that's left to do is head to the parade starting point and get ready for some fun. You'll have a wonderful time admiring all the other doggy participants in their cute costumes, while your dog will get to enjoy being showered with attention by plenty of onlookers. Best of all, you and your dog get to enjoy all the fur-stivities together!

Helping your pet stay cool in summer is an important responsibility for every pet owner, but no one said it couldn't be fun as well. From running under the hose to taking a drive in your air-conditioned car, there are plenty of simple ways you can help your Peke-A-West escape the summer heat.

But if you want to cool your pet down and give them a tasty treat at the same time, this is the activity for you. Homemade frozen pet treats are easy to make and are a paw-some way to spoil your dog when the mercury rises.

Here's what you need to do.

Step
1
Freeze!
There are a couple of simple recipes you can use to make delicious frozen dog treats. The first involves grabbing an ice cube tray and putting one of your dog's favorite treats in each hole. Then you simply fill with water and pop it in the freezer. The other option is to use beef broth instead of water, providing an extra-special flavor sensation for your furry friend. Just remember to plan ahead -- if you know there's a particularly hot day coming up, pop your treats in the freezer the night before.
Step
2
Eat!
When the temperature rises and your dog is starting to feel the heat, open the freezer and pop your delicious doggy treats out of the ice tray. Call your Peka-A-West over and encourage them to taste the icy snack in front of them. Not only will this help your pooch cool down, but it's a great way to keep them busy as they attempt to lick their way to the tasty treat frozen inside.

How much time do you spend thinking about your dog when you're meant to be working? Do you often daydream about how paw-somely wonderful it would be if your dog could go to work with you, how much more fun your day would be?

We're sure these are questions most dog lovers will answer yes to, which is why this activity should be high on your must-do list. If your boss allows it, taking your dog to work for the day will have many benefits for you, your furry friend and also your colleagues. You get to share the day with your pooch, your dog gets lots of mental stimulation and quality time with their human, and your colleagues get the excitement and distraction of having a furry co-worker for a day.

Step
1
Ask your boss
Before you start getting grand ideas about all the fun you'll be able to get up to with your dog at work, ask your boss if it's okay to bring them along. This can be an intimidating conversation to have, so plan what you're going to say ahead of time and arm yourself with statistics about the mental health benefits of a dog-friendly workplace. You might be surprised to find out just how open your boss is to the idea of having a dog in the office.
Step
2
Prepare
Now you'll need to plan out the specifics of the day. Where will your dog sit or lie in the office? Are there any areas of the workplace where the won't be allowed to go? Where will your dog go to the bathroom and how will you keep them amused all day long? Remember to pack bedding so your dog will be comfortable, and bring along toys and a few treats to keep them entertained. Finally, make sure you tire them out on the morning of their day at work so they're more likely to be on their best behavior throughout the day.
Step
3
Work it out
Now it's time to head to work with your four-legged friend in tow. You'll have an extra spring in your step heading off to work with your pooch by your side, and your dog will love the mental stimulation of a day out as well as the chance to spend lots of time with you. You can also expect to be the center of attention (well, okay, your dog will be the center of attention) as your colleagues come to meet their new workmate. Just make sure your dog is on their best behavior so your boss will be more likely to invite them back again in the future.
