Introduction

A cross between the Pekingese and the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, the Pekalier is a cute and cuddly canine with a winning personality. Devoted to its family, the Pekalier is a loving breed that truly thrives when made to feel like an integral part of the family.

Pekaliers are also quite intelligent dogs that benefit from training and regular mental stimulation, but they're fairly low-maintenance in terms of their exercise requirements. So while they're not the type of breed who'll want to run a marathon with you, they still love going on adventures and getting the opportunity to bond with you.

Here are three grrr-eat activities your Pekalier should love.

One of the paw-some things about owning a dog is all the outdoor activities and events they can enjoy with you. So if you and your Pekalier are looking for a fun and fur-friendly day out, you might want to take your dog along to a festival.

Whether it's a food festival, music festival, arts festival, or even a pet festival, your pooch will love the chance to walk around and explore. They can shop market stalls with you, sample fresh produce, listen to some bangin' tunes, or just enjoy strolling around and savoring the different sights, sounds, and smells.

If this sounds like a good day out to you, here's how to plan a festival visit with your canine pal.

Step
1
Choose a festival
Check out an events calendar for your town or city to find any upcoming festivals you and your dog might be able to attend. Check the event organizer's website to find out whether pets are welcome and whether there are any special rules you need to follow at the festival. Other than that, you'll need a leash, water, and maybe some snacks for your canine pal.
Step
2
Get festive!
Head on down to the festival and get ready to enjoy yourself. How you spend your day will obviously depend on the type of festival you attend, but take your time and enjoy the simple pleasure of being out and about with your dog. Festivals can be a treat for the senses of people and their pets, and your Pekalier will love the chance to share the treat with you.

Does your heart break every morning when you leave for work and your Pekalier watches you leave with mournful, "please don't abandon me" eyes? Maybe it's time to look into the possibility of taking your dog to work with you.

If your boss allows, bringing your Pekalier to work for a day is a paw-some way to give your pet the human interaction and mental stimulation they need. Even better, you get to enjoy the company of your canine pal all day long!

If you think your four-legged friend would make a furrific co-worker, here's how to get them to join you at work for a day.

Step
1
Get approval
There are some workplaces where doggy guests simply won't be allowed, but an increasing number of offices are adopting a pet-friendly policy. If you're not sure what your boss will say, surely it can't hurt to ask. Pets offer a range of mental health benefits for people of all ages, and having a cute pet to interact with will surely help boost workplace morale.
Step
2
Remember the essentials
Before taking your dog to work, make sure you've got all the finer details worked out. Where will they sit during the day? How often (and where) will you take them for bathroom breaks? Are there any areas where your pooch is not allowed? You'll also need to remember the essential items your pet needs, including a bed, water bowl, some treats, and a few toys.
Step
3
Enjoy your workday
Your dog will likely be the center of attention and will probably attract plenty of pats. They'll love being able to stay by your side all day long, and you won't have to pine for your pooch while you work. Just make sure they're on their best behavior to increase the likelihood of them being invited back!

Doggy Toy Swap

Activity description

If your dog seems a little bored of their toys, you could always go out and buy them a shopping cart full of new ones. Of course, if you'd prefer to save some money, a wonderful alternative is to engage in a toy swap with one of your furry friend's canine pals.

It's a win-win for everyone involved — your dog gets exciting new toys to play with, and so too does a friend or family member's pooch. This should help provide much-needed mental stimulation for your pet and revitalize their interest in playtime.

Here's what you need to do to set it up.

Step
1
Find a friend
Think of all your friends and family members with dogs that are a similar size to your Pekalier and have similar play habits. Once you've got one or more suitable candidates, get in touch and ask them if their dog would be interested in swapping toys with your pet for a while — maybe for a month or so, after which time you can swap everything back.
Step
2
Clean the toys
If your dog's toys have seen plenty of use, there's a good chance they might not be as clean as they used to be. But even if they're in pristine condition, for hygiene reasons, it's a good idea to give them a clean before going through with the swap. This should prevent any germs, bacteria, and other nasties being passed from dog to dog.
Step
3
Swap toys
Arrange a place and time to meet up and complete the toy swap — you might even want to arrange a playdate for your pooches at the same time. Then all you have to do is hand over the toys, take the box of new toys home, and let your dog have a grrr-eat time. Variety is important for any pet, and the new collection of toys might even open up a range of different play ideas for you and your pup.

Conclusion

No matter what breed you own, caring for a dog requires a commitment of time and effort each and every day. For Pekalier owners, that means putting in the hard yards to give your pet a little exercise, plenty of mental stimulation, and a whole lot of love and affection. But the good news is that whatever activity you and your Pekalier tackle together, your furry friend will simply love being able to spend quality time with you.
