A cross between the Pekingese and the Dachshund, the Pekehund is a hybrid breed that offers cuteness in spades. But these dogs also make wonderful family companions, offering devotion and affection to their human family.
If you've welcomed a Pekehund into your life, you'll no doubt be aware of the importance that regular exercise and mental stimulation to your pet's general health and wellbeing. Along with human interaction and companionship, they're crucial to ensuring a happy and content pooch.
Happily, there are plenty of paw-some games, activities and adventures that can help give your Pekehund all of these essential requirements, so here are a few activities your pooch should love.
Do you love curling up in front of the TV and watching a movie with your furry friend? Are you looking for a way to capture this same experience but offer something a little different and exciting for your dog at the same time?
If so, taking your pet to a drive-in movie could be just what you need. On the one hand, you and your Pekehund get to enjoy the simple pleasure of snuggling up and watching a fantastic film. On the other, your dog gets all the excitement and stimulation of a night out -- not to mention a few tasty snacks as well.
For many dogs, activities don't get much more exciting or enjoyable than taking a trip to the beach. Whether you're taking your dog for a swim or just a long walk along the sand, it's a paw-some way for your dog to stay active, get excellent mental stimulation and enjoy some one-on-one time with you.
However, you can make your dog-friendly beach day even more memorable by joining forces with your dog to build some sand sculptures. With four paws and a wagging tail to help you out, you should be able to build all manner of clever creations in the sand.
Best of all, your dog should love every second of the experience.
Is your dog attracted to mud like a moth to a flame? Do they constantly find ways to come home covered in filth, even on the driest and cleanest of days and usually after you've just washed them?
When your dog gets muddy and mucky, it's usually a frustrating and time-consuming experience for dog owners. But when you actively encourage your dog to get a little dirty and splosh around in the mud -- well, let's just say it's a much more enjoyable experience.
So the next time you come across a muddy puddle, why not just let your dog go nuts and get as dirty as possible?
