Siberian Cockers are the definition of happy, enjoying nothing more than to head outdoors on a sunny day, be social, and spend time with their owner and others. That’s why a trip to the dog park when you have an hour to spare is an excellent activity option. It doesn’t cost you a dime, only requires a leash, toy, and waste bag, and will provide your furry friend will all the exertion they need for the day. What’s more, it enables you both to get outside and enjoy your surroundings – all in a safe, secure, fun, and fenced environment. 

Step
1
Choose the park
The first step to treating your Siberian Cocker to a trip to the dog park is to find one. Not every park is going to be suitable for your dog’s needs – particularly as they like to wander and require solid fencing. Do your research. Talk to friends, family members, and look online. Find out what people say about dog parks in your area and even make a few drive-by trips to check the fencing. It’s better to be safe than sorry.

Play
Your Siberian Cocker won’t need much convincing to start playing! As soon as they see other dogs, you won’t be able to hold them back! Invite them into the fenced enclosure, let them smell other dogs to assert that there’s no danger, then unclip their leash. You can then give them their toy so they can run off and share it with other dogs. After an hour, you’re bound to be able to come home with a tired dog who wants to sleep the rest of the day away!

Activity description

Siberian Cockers can have a lot of energy, and it can be hard to think outside the square to ensure they don’t get bored or tired with the same old activities. Bubbles can be an excellent sunny-day activity when you have half an hour spare for your furry friend. You can set up your bubble mixture and bubble wand outdoors and treat your dog to a weird and wonderful floating ball they are bound to find mesmerizing and exciting! This affordable activity is also one that will tick all the boxes for mental and physical stimulation – leaving them tired and ready for bed in no time! 

Step
1
Buy or make
When it comes to selecting the right bubble mixture for your requirements, you need to be careful. Not only do you need it to be safe for your dog, but safe for your outdoor area as well. You can buy non-toxic bubble mixture from any toy or pet store, or you can even make a home version. You can do this with a low-salt stock cube, half a cup of water, and a quarter of a cup of liquid dish soap.
Step
2
Set up an area
Bubbles can be quite messy, which is why it’s essential that you put thought into where you’re going to play with them with your Siberian Cocker. Wood can stain easily, so stay away from deck areas or wooden homes. Instead, why not head onto the grass with plenty of room for your four-legged friend to play? The bubbles will not make a mess, and your dog will have fun running around chasing them.
Step
3
Play
Once you have set aside a safe area, it’s time to play! You can either blow the bubbles from the wand or invest in a machine that will blow them automatically. No matter which way you do it, your Siberian Cocker will have the time of their life chasing small and large bubbles, trying to work out why they disappear so quickly!

Activity description

Siberian Cockers are brilliant dogs, stemming from their Siberian Husky parentage. If you want an activity that accommodates that intelligence, then invest in a ball launcher and balls. Not only does this moderately priced item help your dog to burn off a significant amount of energy, but it makes them use their brains as well. What’s more, you can use it indoors and outdoors in any weather, and it can cater to their mental and physical stimulation requirements for up to an hour – if not longer. A ball launcher could be the very thing you need to help your pup stay out of trouble!

Step
1
Buy the launcher
The best ball launcher on the market is one that’s customizable but is also effortless for the dog to use as well. Find one that enables you to alter how fast and far it throws the ball so that you can use it indoors and outdoors, and that the dog will have no problem using. They need to be able to catch the ball it throws, then return it into the machine without any hassle.
Step
2
Train
Given the high intelligence of your Siberian Cocker, you won't have too much trouble teaching them how to use the ball launcher. Put the ball into it, set the timer to release it after a certain period, then let them see you put the ball back into the machine. Before long, and with the help of treats and positive praise, you will be able to have them using the unit like a pro.
Step
3
Play
Before you begin, ensure you have the distance set on the ball launcher to the maximum of the area in which you can throw the ball. Check the batteries or power supply, then sit back and watch your dog have fun! The ball launcher enables you to delegate the task of entertainment to a machine, leaving you more time for chores, work, and other household tasks.

Frisbee

Siberian Cockers aren’t large dogs, but that doesn’t mean they won’t enjoy running long distances to catch a frisbee! Your furry friend will love nothing more than spending time with you in a yard or another large area with one of their favorite toys. What’s more, the outdoor environment coupled with the stimulation will leave them tired in no time. 

Walk

Sometimes, all it takes is a walk with your Siberian Cocker to wear them out and provide all the bonding time they require. It’s a free activity and one that requires minimal effort on your part. However, it’s beneficial and also makes you get out of the house if you otherwise wouldn’t. 

Conclusion

Both the American Cocker Spaniel and Siberian Husky can be challenging breeds to own. However, the deliberate breeding of the two has created a beautiful, loving, well-behaved and loyal dog that you will happily invite into your home and family. Once they have arrived, you will find all these activities above will more than help to create a well-rounded pup that will love every minute of their time with you.
