Introduction

Siberian Black Mouth Curs are the result of a Siberian Husky and a Black Mouth Cur breeding. This breed is not one that’s suitable for a first-time dog owner and, instead, requires an experienced one with a firm hand and plenty of time for training. What you will also require after adopting a Siberian Black Mouth Cur are a repertoire of activities and very high fencing! Here are a few things you can do with your new dog to keep them entertained and stimulated for hours.

Activity description

Both the Siberian Husky and the Black Mouth Cur are born to work. They want to have a job to do and will get into mischief if you leave them to their own devices instead. Given the Black Mouth Cur’s ability to act as a watchdog for your family, it makes sense to teach them this very activity. By doing so, you are offering them a job while helping your family at the same time. You can carry it out in any weather and it doesn’t cost any money either. While it can be a challenge and takes several 20-minute training sessions, it will be well worth it when they can protect your family in a non-threatening manner. All you need is a treat and some knowledge to get started.

Step
1
Commands
The first step to training your dog to guard your property is to make sure they have an understanding of commands. Sit, stay, and come, will all be necessary, so you may need to lay the groundwork to make sure your dog listens to you and does as you tell them. You can teach them these commands at home or enlist the help of a dog trainer. If they are younger than six months old, enrolling them in puppy school may also appeal.
Step
2
Trigger word
The goal of having a guard dog or watch dog is to make sure they can alert you when someone approaches your property. The goal is not for them to be an attack dog. Therefore, you need to teach them a trigger word or command which lets them know to alert you when someone enters your property or is at the door. Speak or Door may be effective, but it should not be so obvious to an outsider. Every time you want your dog to bark, use an enthusiastic voice as you say your trigger word.
Step
3
Bark on command
Now that your dog has a word to bark on command, it’s important to get them to follow through with doing so. Tie them up either inside or outside, and hold a treat out to them. Begin backing away until you’re out of their line of sight. When they can’t see you anymore and bark or whimper, go toward them and say the trigger word happily, giving them the treat. Try this method out in various areas of your home. You want them to hear someone coming so they will bark.

Activity description

Bikejoring is either a sport you can do on your own or competitively within a club or group of people. For the sake of entertaining and exercising your dog, it’s a fun and moderately-priced activity with a standard difficulty level, and one you can do on a sunny day for an hour with a leash, harness, and bike. While it may take a little while for your dog to get used to running or walking alongside your bike, it can help keep them fit, healthy, active, and feeling like they are needed for a job. It can also help you to keep in shape at the same time!

Step
1
Walk with bike
The first step to bikejoring is to make your dog confident having the bike in the same area as them. Put your dog’s harness on and walk with them in one hand and have the handlebar of the bike in the other. The goal is to have them not feel scared or threatened by a big metal frame on wheels moving near them!
Step
2
Ride and walk
Once your Siberian Black Mouth Cur gets used to having the bike near them, you can now ride on the bicycle and hold the leash in the other hand. They won’t be attached to the bike, but they now get to see you on the bike and become accustomed to it. You may need to continue this process for the next few outings.
Step
3
Bikejoring
With your Siberian Black Mouth Cur now comfortable with the bike and you on the bike, it’s time to attach them to it! Buy a special harness which attaches to your bike with a gap between them and the bike. They can now run alongside the bike, or in front of it pulling you along.

Activity description

If you are an avid hiker, then bringing a Siberian Black Mouth Cur into your home doesn’t have to alter that. You may need to dedicate more time to dog-friendly activities, but hiking can be one of them. Siberian Black Mouth Curs are strong dogs, and you will find that a three-hour hike in the sunshine will tire you out quicker than it will them - especially if the hike is a normal difficulty. Hiking with your Siberian Black Mouth Cur is also a fun and free activity, while also only requiring you to carry water, a leash, and a waste bag.

Step
1
Choose a route
It doesn’t matter where you live, you are sure to find there is an abundance of hiking trails near you. Even if you have to go for a road trip to get there, that would be like including two fun activities for your furry friend in one! It’s important to hunt down a route that’s going to be dog-friendly, and one that you both can handle. There are so many great options throughout the United States, such as Red Rock Canyon in Nevada, Lake Dorothy in Washington, and Acadia National Park in Maine, to name a few.
Step
2
Hike
Going on a hiking adventure is a fun pastime for anyone who enjoys the great outdoors, but for those who own a Siberian Black Mouth Cur, it’s killing two birds with one stone. You get to exercise your furry friend, and you get to experience nature too. Both you and your dog will enjoy the adventure no matter where it takes you.

More Fun Ideas...

Run

If you need to blow off a little steam, then you won’t have to convince your Siberian Black Mouth Cur to do the same. With high energy levels, your dog will love nothing more than going for a long run with you, exploring the neighborhood behind the six-foot-high fence. Put on your running shoes, grab a leash, and hit the road.  

Dog Park

When your Siberian Black Mouth Cur is a little older or has been socialized well, you can begin to take them to the dog park. They may not hit it off with all dogs instantly, but use your dog ownership experience to read each unique situation. Pay attention to your dog’s body language, pair them with dogs of a similar size, and include plenty of fun toys and entertainment to keep them focused.  

Conclusion

Siberian Black Mouth Curs are beautiful dogs - both in their nature and looks. However, they require a firm hand, positive reinforcement, and an experienced owner. Try out these activities above such as running, hiking, watching and trips to the dog park, and you’re sure to find that your ownership experience is a pawsitive one.
