Crossing a Pekingese with a Bolognese creates the energetic and loving Peke-a-Boo dog breed. Just as their name implies, this small breed enjoys games and mental challenges. They make for flawless apartment dogs as they don't require an extensive amount of daily exercise.
From their Pekingese parent breed, the Peke-a-Boo inherits distinctive physical traits including a noticeable under-bite and short coat. From the Bolognese, your Peke-a-Boo is likely to be graced with a friendly demeanor and temperament, making them "pawfect" family dogs. Like most small breeds, however, the Peke-a-Boo can respond aggressively if handled incorrectly, so supervision is always recommended with young children! Though they do enjoy moderate exercise, the Peke-a-Boo is an easy breed to maintain. Short, brisk walks and outings are some the many activities you can explore with your energetic companion.
Taking your Peke-a-Boo to the beach is one activity they're sure to enjoy as they don't do well in hot weather. Taking walks in the heat can cause your pup's temperature to rise, which can be extremely uncomfortable for them. That's why the beach is ideal. Walking by a large body of water will prevent any overheating, because they have the "oppawtunity" to dive in and cool down.
The only requirements for this activity is finding a dog-friendly beach within a convenient distance for the two of you to visit. Pack up the car and make it a whole day adventure, by bringing lots of drinking water, snacks and an umbrella or tent to give your pooch access to shade at all times. Lounge on the beach or swim in the water, depending on how you and your Peke-a-Boo are feeling.
Speed walking is a "grrreat" activity for your Peke-a-Boo because it's quick and easy while still giving the two of you a good workout. Speed walking is very similar to a normal walk, except you take away stop-and-sniff breaks as well as bathroom breaks. You can do these activities prior to beginning your walk, but the purpose of a speed walk is to move at a constant, quick pace, without breaks.
Though this is something that may take your Peke-a-Boo some time to master, it's an effective activity for working their cardio while concurrently challenging their obedience. Maintaining a routine and practicing your quickened pace regularly is one way for your pooch to catch on swiftly.
What better way to celebrate your Peke-a-Boo than pampering them at home in a do-it-yourself spa setting? As Peke-a-Boos are satisfied with lounging around, this activity is a “pawfect” way to enhance their relaxation.
Search your house for useful items you already have before heading out to the pet store. Ideal ways to enhance your pup's experience is by satisfying their senses. A diffuser and essential oils coupled with soothing music is one way to set the mood. Having products on hand for a luscious wash is another idea. Once your spa is ready to go, grab your Peke-a-Boo and start pampering!
Without a doubt, the Peke-a-Boo is a loving and affectionate petite pooch who needs only a moderate amount of exercise. As a result, they’re ideal for apartment living and older couples looking for a cuddly companion. Peke-a-Boos are content with relaxing throughout the day, but finding ways to stimulate them mentally and physically is important to maintaining good health.
Explore your outdoor options together such as by spending a day at the beach, or speed walking through your community. You can also make the most of your time together by turning your home into a doggie spa for the day, and treating your Peke-a-Boo like never before. It’s always a good idea to introduce obedience training at a young age so your pooch learns their role in the pack, and you can begin command training after they’re 8 weeks old! Spending a night at the movies is another way to add excitement to a Friday night. Whether cuddling, moving, or playing, there’s a variety of ways to spend your day with your Peke-a-Boo!
