Dogs that are proud and carry themselves with an air of arrogance need activities that allow them to shine. These dogs do not necessarily enjoy spending time getting dirty with other dogs, preferring instead to take control of the situation and show why they deserve attention and accolades. While dogs do not have the same emotions as people and really cannot feel prideful, they can have a certain air about them that causes you to say that the dog is proud. There are plenty of activities for dogs that are proud; activities that give you the opportunity to show off your canine companion and allow them to strut their stuff in front of others.
Dog shows come in all shapes and sizes ranging from your county fair’s cutest dog contest to the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club’s annual dog show. If you have a purebred dog with the proper registration status, you may want to toss your hat into the ring and try a conformation dog show. There is a lot that needs to be done before you get to the actual show and it can be pricey to prepare your dog for the event. Entry fees can also be expensive when you enter multiple shows. The actual time you are in the show ring will vary depending on how many dogs are in your dog’s class, if your dog has to go back in the ring to compete for best of breed and also if they win best of breed and compete in their respective group. Many people claim that dog show people are a bit fanatical, so be prepared to show your dog in any weather condition if you are not lucky enough to show at an indoor venue.
Can you think of a better way to have a proud dog strut their stuff besides a dog parade? There seem to be parades everywhere these days and many of them are more than happy to have dogs join in the fun. When deciding on what parades to participate in, you should look at the theme and start thinking about what type of costume your dog could sport while strutting down the parade route. You might even be able to hitch a ride on a float and have your dog act as the official mascot for that float. There are so many different ways your dog can fully participate in a parade and most parades do not last long, about an hour at the most.
Costumes are not just for Halloween anymore. You can find canine costume contests at almost any time of the year and for any occasion. Coming up with unique and fun costumes for your dog will keep you entertained. Entering your dog in costume contest events will give your dog plenty of opportunities to lift their head high and proudly sashay through the crowd as people applaud for them.
Doggy day spas are becoming more and more popular. There seems to be no such thing as a simple trip to the groomer for their monthly wash, dry, and brush. Now, it is all about pampering our four-legged kids and giving them an experience that will be memorable, leaving them squeaky clean, sweet smelling and decked out in bows, ribbons and all different kinds of hair products to achieve that just right look.
Your dog may have a proud look about them, but they will still enjoy being a dog and getting into interesting situations. There are several activities that you can do with your dog to ensure they can get their swagger on and still enjoy being with you. Research activities in your area and be prepared to show off your dog to the crowds that will gather wherever your dog goes.
