Many owners of small dogs get a little nervous about trips to the dog park. However, small dogs love getting to meet new dogs and get exercise. Dog parks offer your Pom-Kee a great way to release energy and get socialization without causing you a lot of extra work, which is ideal for busy, tired dog owners. An outing to the park is a free and easy activity that can give both you and your pup a chance to break from routine. If you are at a dog park that has a designated small dog area, you might want to keep your Pom-Kee in that area to prevent the risk of serious injuries from a larger dog. However, Pom-Kees tend to know how to handle themselves around dogs of all sizes.
Busy pet owners often feel a sense of guilt for not getting their dogs enough exercise. Don't fall into this trap with your Pom-Kee. Instead, use interactive toys to play with your pooch. These toys often encourage your dog to play in order to get rewarded with a small treat. There are a variety of different options for interactive toys. Some toys are puzzles that your dog has to try to solve to get a treat. Others just require your dog to bat at a ball or similar toy to get a treat to fall out of it. Regardless, all types of interactive toys will get your Pom-Kee moving for little cost but much benefit.
