The Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka is a small companion dog that is popular in Europe, but considered a rare breed within North America. They are hypoallergenic, making them ideal pets for people with dog allergies. These little dogs are clever and love to play games. Their easy-going nature endears them to almost everyone they meet. The Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka can be an independent dog and be aloof if they are not socialized early. They get along well with other pets in the home. This breed is energetic and needs to have an outlet for all that energy. The Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka loves taking walks, playing games and learning tricks. Finding activities for your dog should not be difficult since they love to play.
The Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka does enjoy spending time outside taking a stroll through the neighborhood. They are an inquisitive little dog and needs to be leashed while walking to keep them close and out of trouble. Make sure they are wearing a collar that they cannot slip out of if they decide to give chase after a leaf or squirrel. When you encounter larger dogs on your walk, move your dog so that you are between the larger dog and your Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka or simply pick your Bolonka up until the other dog has passed. While most dogs will probably be friendly, it is always good to practice safety. Bring along some treats for your dog to encourage them if they lose focus or decide they do not want to walk anymore. Also, tuck a few pick-up bags in your pocket to clean up any mess your dog makes while out walking. It is best to take a stroll in sunny or slightly cloudy weather when the temperatures are not too hot or too cold. This is a free and easy activity that should last for about 30 minutes.
The Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka has a long, flowing coat similar to a Shih Tzu or Yorkshire Terrier. Their hair must be brushed regularly when kept in full coat and not in a puppy cut. The hair on their head should also be pulled up into a top-knot to keep the hair out of their eyes. Hosting a spa day with your Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka is an easy thing to do and can be done at home or you can take them to a dog groomer for their spa day. It is more expensive to take your dog to the groomer, and it could also set your dog up for health problems if the groomer does not properly sanitize their equipment. You can do a spa day any time, no matter the weather and it is the perfect pastime for a rainy day!
The Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka is an intelligent dog and learning a trick will be easy for them. Start with a simple trick such as giving a high five. Once they have learned a basic trick, you can then expand on that trick to do more elaborate tricks to impress your family and friends. Trick training is cheap, easy, and can be done anywhere.
Even though your Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka was bred to be mainly a companion dog, they are energetic and love to play games. Expect your Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka to be the clown of the household and in need of fun activities to keep them happy. They enjoy playing games, going on walks, or learning new tricks. They are independent dogs with a mind of their own and will find things to occupy their time if you do not provide them with plenty of toys and activities.
