If you live near the beach, surfing is a fun activity that you can take on with your Schipperke. As long as your pooch is comfortable in the water, you can plop them on a surfboard and start doing some surfing training. Surfing is a difficult activity. It helps if you also know how to surf, so you should either be an experienced surfer or become one before you attempt to take your dog out surfing with you. You can also decide whether you want to allow your dog to surf solo or if you want them to share your board with you. If you want to get them their own surfboard, remember that it will be a much pricier activity. Only surf with your dog in ideal conditions. It should be sunny with moderate waves as big waves could be dangerous and scary for your dog.
Yoga offers relaxation and physical activity for humans, but that doesn't mean that dogs can't also benefit from this unique practice. With more and more places offering Doga at least occasionally, many humans are bringing their furry friends into the practice with them. There are two different fields of Doga. In one, dogs are used more like a prop for added difficulty. In the other, dogs are considered a partner in the practice, and both dog and owner will work together to complete poses. With a few Doga sessions, you and your dog will further bond, and you will both take part in a relaxing activity together. Doing this activity at home will be of no expense; however, the cost of a class outside the home is well worth the minimal cost as the socialization benefits are great!
