Introduction

The Pomeranian and the Beagle are two of the most renowned and well-loved breeds in the entire world. This is because of the lovely qualities that each breed possesses; the Pomeranian is a loving but feisty dog while the Beagle is loyal with a hint of stubbornness. When combined, the result is the Pomeagle, a hybrid known for being smart, affectionate and devoted. Pomeagles are the perfect companion for any owner because of their sense of loyalty and streak of energy. However, owners of this dog should know that they do not like being left behind. Therefore, you need to regularly spend time with your Pomeagle to keep them happy.

Activity description

It is a well-known fact that dogs use their scent as their primary sense, regardless of what breed they are. Pomeagles can inherit strong hunting instincts, mostly coming from their Beagle side. An ideal activity to help utilize this instinct and to stimulate your dog’s mind is through a game of scavenger hunt. Using scent to find “hidden treasures” also allows your dog to use all the other senses. One other great thing about scavenger hunts is that they require nothing but your dog’s favorite treat. This challenging game can also be played at any time within the comforts of your own home. 

Step
1
Start easy
Like with most activities, you first have to start with something easy for your dog to learn. In the case of a scavenger hunt, the goal is to set your pooch up for success to prevent them from getting bored or discouraged. Start the game by asking your dog to stay while you hide their favorite treat. Choose an easy hiding spot; you may even perform the act of hiding while your dog looks on. Once you give your dog the go signal, let them retrieve the treat and use praise if they do it right.
Step
2
Ramp up the difficulty level
When your dog gets a good understanding of how the game works, you can then take things up a notch and make it more difficult for your pooch to find the treats. You can go to a different room or hide the treat in a spot that has strong scents that can mask the odor of the treat. Then, on your cue, have your dog look for the treat that you have hidden. When they find it, use positive reinforcement and reward them for a job well done.

Activity description

Pomeagles are certified people dogs, which means they love to be around their owners at all times. In fact, when left alone for an extended period of time, this breed can experience separation anxiety. Therefore, it is your duty as an owner to make sure that you spend enough time with your Pomeagle on a regular basis. One productive and fun way to bond with your dog is by planning a trip to the local lake. By the lake, you are presented with various opportunities to relax, unwind and have fun with your four-legged companion. This activity is best done during the warm summer days. 

Step
1
Check in with your veterinarian
While the outdoors is a great playground for your dog, it is also home to potentially harmful elements such as ticks and fleas. To avoid infestations or any other complications, pay a visit to your veterinarian before heading out. This is important especially if you plan to take regular trips to the local lake or any other outdoor areas. Get the necessary shots for your dog to keep them healthy.
Step
2
Pack your stuff
When you are done with the visit to your vet, prepare all the stuff that you need for your trip to the lake. Make sure that you have an ample supply of food and water for your dog. You may also bring some frozen treats for your pooch, particularly if the weather is hot as dogs are more susceptible to heat stroke. If you are planning to swim, pack a flotation device to keep your dog safe in the water.
Step
3
Explore and enjoy
When everything is packed up and you are ready to go, take your stuff and your dog and make your way down to the nearest lake. When you get there, find a spot where you can set up your stuff. As soon as you have everything ready, you can start to enjoy the day. Eat, drink and swim with your pooch. You can also play fetch or go on hikes if there are trails nearby. Cap the day off by watching the sunset with your best buddy by your side.

Activity description

Pomeagles have moderate exercise requirements and, more often than not, an hour of walking is good enough to keep them physically stimulated. However, dog walking sometimes is boring and repetitive, especially when you are alone and you go through the same walking routes. Whether you want to make your daily walks a more sociable and friendly experience for you and your pooch or you simply want to meet other dog parents in your area, a good idea would be to start a dog walking club. By having this club, your dog’s typical walk also doubles as a method of socialization. You also meet like-minded individuals and make a mundane activity more fun. 

Step
1
Lay out your objectives
Before you can start a dog walking club, you first need to have your goals in order. Are you looking to start a Pomeagle-only club? Do you want to use the walking club as a form of socialization for your pooch? Are you looking for other doggy parents in your area? Or is the walking club you have in mind more of a “come one, come all” kind? The objectives you have will determine the kinds of dogs and owners that you will look for so it is best to know these things beforehand.
Step
2
Start in your area
If you want to immediately find owners and dogs that you can invite during your walk, the best place to start is somewhere close to home, such as your neighborhood. Speak with dog owners in your area and find out if they would be interested in joining the club you are planning to start. You may also approach local dog clubs or rescue organizations. Another good place to look for potential members is the dog park. You can also opt to put up fliers or signs around the neighborhood or in your workplace.
Step
3
Take the digital route
Once you believe that you have exhausted all efforts to connect with others in person or as soon as you have a small group of people that are interested, you can expand your efforts by using the internet. Social media is highly effective for advertisements. Create groups on Facebook, Twitter and other platforms to spread the word about your dog walking club.

Visit an Outdoor Market

Outdoor and farmers markets are a great venue for dog owners because they get to bring their four-legged friends with them. Take advantage of this by taking your Pomeagle out to do some shopping with you. 

Hang out on the Couch

The Pomeagle has moderate exercise requirements and will be more than happy to stay on the couch all day with their owners and do nothing. If you feel like relaxing for the day, watch your favorite movie or TV show while your dog curls up in your lap.

Conclusion

An adorable-looking hybrid dog with a big personality, the Pomeagle is truly a wonderful dog to own. They adapt well to any environment they are placed in, just as long as they get enough exercise and socialization. They also get along well with everyone, including children and other pets. With the right type of activities and enough TLC, the Pomeagle can become a friend and companion for life.
