Introduction

The Sealyham Terrier is a fearless pooch. The breed was created to hunt badgers, foxes, and otters. Known to be very approachable, unlike many other terriers, the Sealy's friendliness makes them an excellent therapy dog. This frisky canine does not always get along well with other dogs. A bit of a bruiser, the Sealy might not be a wise choice for a dog park. However, the breed's feisty nature is typical of most terriers and often a characteristic that owners enjoy. The Sealy is a dog that is happy on any outing but also enjoys just lounging around the house.

Activity description
The Sealyham Terrier uses their keen senses to hunt. This dog will fearlessly chase prey into burrows to drive the animals out for the hunters. Although your Sealy probably seems far removed from the early hunting terriers, your canine's instincts are strong and within your pet's DNA exists the hunting instincts of previous generations. Why not indulge your pooch by creating a fun game of hide and seek in a pile of leaves? If it is fall where you live, then you can rake the leaves into a large pile. If you do not have leaves, then you can always invest in a large bale of straw (not free, but still a bargain) and spread it across the lawn in a mound.
Step
1
Create a mound
Create a mound of either leaves or straw. Once you have a mound created, hide small toys and treats beneath the leaves and straw. Try to pick treats and items that your Sealy enjoys playing with and finding. During this entire process, make sure your Sealy is not watching you. Terriers are very smart and if the dog knows you are hiding things then your pooch will quickly find the items.
Step
2
Show your Sealy
Bring your Sealy outdoors and show the dog the mound of leaves or straw. Tell the dog to find the treats or find the toys. If your terrier does not immediately start sniffing through the leaves and straw, drop to your knees to show your pooch how to do the search. Push aside the debris until you locate a treat or toy and show the item to your dog. Moving forward, they will be certain to find the rest!
Step
3
Let the search begin
Every time your Sealy finds an item be sure to heap lots of praise on your beloved pooch so that your dog knows they are doing exactly what you expect. This simple game of hide and seek activates your dog's terrier instincts to search out an item and even dig for it. Most terriers love this game!

Activity description
During the autumn months, a wide array of pumpkin patches open up across the nation. They are a fun place to visit before the cold days of winter start. As with all events, you should call ahead to make sure that the location welcomes well-behaved pets before you decide to bring your Sealyham Terrier to the event. Most Sealy's love getting out the warm sunshine and exploring the many smells of the pumpkin patch. If you are visiting the location right before Halloween, you might even want to dress your pooch in a fun costume to get into the spirit of the occasion. This is great fun, all for the cost of a pumpkin!
Step
1
Pumpkin patch arrival
When you first arrive at the pumpkin patch be sure your dog is on a leash. Typically, even the pumpkin patches that allow dogs have a leash rule that must be obeyed. At the entrance to the pumpkin patch, there are often wagons that you can use to transport the pumpkins so you don't have to carry them. You might want to load your Sealy into one of the wagons and give them a ride through the garden.
Step
2
Exploring
Most pumpkin patches are very large. You can walk the many rows of colorful pumpkins with your pooch until you find the perfect gourd for your holiday festivities. Many pumpkin patches also feature corn mazes - a fun adventure that your dog is sure to enjoy.

Pumpkins
Many dogs enjoy tearing up a tiny pumpkin. Why not let your Sealy pick out the perfect terrier size pumpkin to purchase? Later at home, you can let your pooch tear up the pumpkin in your backyard as a fun activity - monitor them, though. You don't want them to ingest too much raw pumpkin.

Activity description
The Sealyham Terrier is an unusual looking dog that tends to be rare in the United States. Anytime you opt to take your Sealy to a public event the dog will undoubtedly draw much admiration and stares from onlookers. Depending on what area of the country you live in, there are usually outdoor concerts to appreciate. If you live in Florida or another southern state, the shows are year round, but in other regions, they might only be in the spring, summer, or fall months. However, most outdoor concerts welcome leashed dogs. They are a fun and cost-friendly way to get outdoors and enjoy time with your beloved pooch in any type of weather.
Step
1
Arrival
When you first arrive at the concert, you will want to make sure your dog is on a leash. Then the two of you can scout out the area to find the perfect location to watch from. Many outdoor concerts feature seating but others do not. If this is the case, bring along a blanket or chairs for seating.
Step
2
Dancing
Outdoor concerts that allow dogs tend to have a laidback atmosphere so why not scoop your Sealy up in your arms and do a bit of dancing together? Undoubtedly, your pooch will enjoy the one-on-one time with you and the sound of the music will be very relaxing. Even if you just swing together to the rhythm of the music, your dog will enjoy the time close to you.
Step
3
Take a walk
Many concerts feature arts and craft stands or food booths. Take a break from the music scene and explore the various attractions with your furry buddy. Take time to rehydrate and find a place for your pup to have a bathroom break. Be sure to pick up waste. Keep your dog by your side in respect for other concert-goers, some of whom may not be comfortable around dogs.

Mani-Pedi

Your Sealyham Terrier has a lovely white or cream coat and small dainty paws. A fun activity that you can enjoy together is giving your pooch a mani-pedi. Even if your dog is a male, you can still paint the Sealy's nails a bright and dazzling shade that stands out in stark contrast against their white fur. Why not choose a seasonal nail color like orange for fall or green for Christmas? You could even alternate colors and paint one toenail red and the next toenail green. If your dog is used to having their tails trimmed they should not object to a fun mani-pedi.

Take a Road Trip

One of the great things about a Sealyham Terrier is that the dog is small and compact. The Sealy is the perfect size for taking along on a road trip. You can plan an overnight excursion or a classic afternoon adventure. Ideally, your dog should be placed in a dog crate or within the confines of a pet approved car set. While driving, be sure to talk to your pooch because most dogs love the sound of their owner's voice.

Conclusion

The Sealyham Terrier is known to have an independent streak, but that doesn't mean they don't enjoy one-on-one time with their beloved owner. Embarking on any of the above activities is a great way to bond with your pooch. Also, getting your dog out to enjoy an adventure is an excellent way to keep them in shape. All dogs benefit from a bit of exercise. Even though your Sealyham Terrier might not like hanging out with other dogs, there are still delightful games and outings that you can enjoy with your independent pal.
