You've got the picnic basket, three different types of sandwiches, enough sides to feed an army, and a checkered blanket, so what are you missing? Your Scolden Terrier of course! These pups will add a fun and light-hearted atmosphere to any picnic, and they would rather tag along with the family than be left at home by themselves. Just make sure you pick a good spot with plenty of shade where they can conk out after chasing and playing with the kids. Bringing your Scolden Terrier on a picnic is the perfect way to bond and spend time with everyone on weekends or during summer break.
Step
1
The best spot
It's important to find a picnic spot that works for everyone. It should have plenty of shade to rest in, especially for your Scolden Terrier who will want to take a happy nap or two. There should be plenty of grass or sand for the kids to play games on, and there should be a picnic table or an easy place to lay out the delicious spread. It's always a bonus if there is water nearby for a dip, though your Scolden Terrier may opt out of a swim with the children.
Step
2
Pack everything
If you plan what you need to pack the night before you head out, it will relieve a lot of stress trying to get out of the house. You can also write down a checklist that you can use each time you head out. Aside from the regular picnic things like chairs, lawn games, food, and utensils, you'll need to pack some things for the dog. Bring a blanket or travel dog bed so they have a designated spot in the shade. Bring water and a dog bowl so they can stay hydrated, and don't forget some toys the children can use to play games with the dog. Always have a leash ready in case you need to keep control of the dog.

Have fun
The last step, after the bags are packed and everyone is loaded int he car, is to have fun! When you arrive, set the dog up first so they know exactly where to go and what space is theirs. Keep checking their water and filling the bowl as needed. With so much fun activity they may be more thirsty than usual. Most importantly, enjoy the day with your family. These times are important for making memories your family will remember forever.

Activity description
If you enjoy doing yoga because it helps ease your joints and relaxes your mind, just think about the benefits your dog will receive. Doga, aka dog yoga is one of the best activities for Scolden Terriers because it helps them relax, improves circulation, and will increase the bond you two have together. There are two types of Doga, one where you help your Scolden Terrier get into moves or incorporate them into moves you are doing, and another where you do yoga while the dogs wander about (you might already be doing this kind without knowing it if your dog ever interrupts your session!).
Step
1
Find an instructor
The first thing you need to do is find an instructor or studio that offers Doga as a class. You might be able to find an instructor who will come to your house and show you the moves. If you are doing Doga that incorporates the dog, it's a good idea to hire someone who can help you ease into the positions and make your dog comfortable. Doga is really catching on, so do a quick internet search to find your closest studios.
Step
2
At home classes
If you can't find a yoga studio that has a Doga instructor near you, don't worry. You can look for certified instructors online or try out some easy classes. The most important thing to remember is to go slowly and not force your dog into anything. Most of the moves are designed to massage and stretch your dog and make them feel good. If something is stressing your dog out, just move on to a different move or let them have a rest.
Step
3
Form a habit
The benefits of Doga are many, but they are also cumulative. You need to make sure you are doing this exercise regularly for your dog to be happy and excited when you roll out the yoga mat and to reap the benefits. Schedule time in your calendar a few times a week and make the sessions short at first or only introduce a few moves at a time. Once you both are used to the movement, you can add new challenges. Doga with your Scolden Terrier will be a fun and relaxing part of your together time.

Activity description
Scolden Terriers are smart pups who don't need a lot of physical exercise, but they do need plenty of stimulation to keep them from getting bored. Playing games like follow the leader or similar are important activities for Scolden Terriers because they keep these pups entertained and out of trouble. Follow the leader is an easy game that you'll also find lots of joy in too. Watching your silly and animated dog follow you where ever you go will make you laugh almost as much as turning the tables and following your dog where ever they go. This fun game is perfect for any weather as it can be played indoors and outside.
Step
1
Follow me
The first step is to teach the dog the "follow me" command. This command starts the game but also comes in handy in many other situations. You can start by showing your dog a treat and walking with it held behind your back. Say "follow me" as your dog begins to follow you, then give them a break and try again. Eventually, you can start walking for longer periods.
Step
2
Make it challenging
When your dog is successfully following you, up the challenge. Have them follow you into different rooms, change direction quickly, and include interesting obstacles for them to figure out. You can use a squeaky toy to keep them interested or encourage them with a fun, high voice. Let them know they are doing a good job and they will be excited to play follow the leader at any time.
Step
3
Flip the game
When your Scolden Terrier is mastering follow the leader, switch it up and make your dog the leader. This may be strange for them at first but if you practice they will get the hang of it. You can even introduce a different command like "switch" to let them know it's their turn to lead. They will have so much fun being in charge and leading you to their favorite things.
