Introduction

A popular and charming hybrid dog, the Pekepoo is a cross between the adorable Pekingese and the intelligent, athletic Poodle. Also known as the Pekepoo, this designer breed is a loyal and loving companion dog that thrives on human interaction and companionship.

Wherever you go and whatever you're doing, your Pekepoo simply wants to be right there with you and included in everything that's going on. However, this breed is also fairly active and needs regular exercise, and will benefit from regular mental challenges that encourage them to put their smarts to use.

So if you're looking for ways to give your Pekepoo a physical and mental workout, here are a few paw-some options.

If you're a yoga enthusiast, you'll no doubt be well aware of the many physical and mental benefits this popular form of exercise provides. What you may not realize is that dogs can also do yoga!

Known as doga, this wonderful activity can be fun and relaxing for you and your dog, helping to relieve tension and also strengthen a range of muscle groups. It may take a little while for your dog to relax and commit to a doga session, but many pets will quickly get the hang of it and simply be thrilled to be able to spend time with their owner.

Step
1
Find a class
While you can try your paw at dog yoga in the comfort of your own home if you want, the best way to get started is to find a doga class near you and enroll. This will give you a chance to find out exactly what's involved in doga, including the key poses and stretches involved, and help you understand how to help your dog get the most out of each session.
Step
2
Get started
Dog yoga classes are remarkably similar to human yoga classes. Your dog exercises on a yoga mat, the atmosphere is quiet and subdued, and there may even be mood lighting and burning incense. Starting with relaxed breathing, you'll then give your dog a gentle massage and encourage them to perform a range of stretches. Your instructor will lead you through the basics and your Pekepoo will love the chance to unwind with you by their side.

Activity description

It's cold and raining outside and you're stuck inside with a stir-crazy Pekepoo. Rather than venturing out into the miserable weather, you need an indoor activity that will offer a physical and mental workout for your pooch. It's time to build an indoor obstacle course for your canine pal.

Think of this as creating a miniature agility course in the comfort of your own home. Pekepoos are smart and active dogs, and they'll love the challenge of tackling whatever obstacles you can put in front of them.

Best of all, you won't have to spend any money to do it — you can use a wide range of everyday items that are just lying around your home.

Step
1
Pick a spot
The first step is deciding where you're going to build the course. This will obviously depend on the size and layout of your home, but the living room and/or hallway are often the best bet. And if you live in a two-story home, you could even work the stairs into the course to provide an extra workout.
Step
2
Build the course
Take a look around your home for items you can safely use as obstacles. From toys and towels to couch cushions and pieces of furniture, you might be surprised just how many everyday items look right at home on an obstacle course. Remember to add as much variety as you can so your dog can jump, crawl, run and weave their way to the finish line.
Step
3
Let the games begin
If your dog is an experienced agility campaigner, they might know exactly what you want them to do straight away. If not, you may need to guide your pet through the course one obstacle at a time, using treats and praise to reward them for successfully navigating each challenge. Before too long, your pooch should be ready to tackle the course on their own — and have a great time doing it!

Teach Your Dog to Fetch the Leash

Want your dog to help you get ready for their daily walk? Training them to fetch their leash is a grrr-eat way to provide mental stimulation for your pet.

Make Your Own Dog Treats

If you want to spoil your Pekepoo, invite them into the kitchen with you to bake some home-made dog treats. If they're well-behaved, you might even be able to let them lick the bowl.

Conclusion

Pekepoos are companion animals, so don't expect your dog to be happy if you just stick them in the backyard all alone for hours at a time. Instead, you need to make your dog feel like they belong, and the best way to do that is by giving them as much attention as possible. If you can keep finding new activities that not only give your pooch a mental and physical workout but also let them spend one-on-one time with you, your Pekepoo will reward you with their love and respect.
