Introduction

This dog may very well be the ultimate companion for humans who love roughing it out in the great outdoors; Siberian Indian Dogs descend from Siberian Huskies and Native American Indian Dogs (also known as Carolina Dogs) and they've retained traits from both parents that allow them to not only survive but thrive in outdoor environments. Siberian Indian Dogs tend to have massive, fluffy coats and pointed ears - two traits that cause many people to assume that Siberian Indian Dogs are actually wolves! In reality, Siberian Indian Dogs are very friendly canines who love socializing with humans and other animals, as well as trying out a number of unconventional outdoor activities.

As it turns out, it's much easier to teach a dog (old or new) a new trick despite what the old adage might say. Don't get us wrong, there are plenty of complex tricks that will take dogs a long time to master but the simple tricks like sitting, staying, and laying down can all be taught to a dog in about 15 to 20 minutes. The key to getting a dog to the point where they can execute tricks on command is repetition; you might be able to teach a dog a trick in less than half an hour but the two of you will need to practice constantly to really get it down pat.
Step
1
Sitting
This is the simplest trick of them all; to get a dog to sit, hold a dog treat in front of them their faces until they've locked their focus on the treat or your hand. While you have your dog's attention, slowly raise the treat above their head while saying "sit." Once your dog assumes proper sitting posture, reward them with the treat and praise. Get another treat and repeat the process but don't give them the treat until they successfully get in the "sit" position twice in a row.
Step
2
Staying
There isn't really a such thing as proper "staying" posture; for your dog to complete this activity, they just need to stay put after you ask them to "stay." To show your dog what staying is, you'll need to first get them to stay put in one place. While maintaining eye contact with your dog, move away from them while issuing the "stay" command. If your dog gets up to follow you, issue the command again until they get the idea.
Step
3
Laying down
To get a dog to lie down, hold a dog treat above their heads and then slowly lower the treat until you reach the ground. If you pull this trick off right, your dog will gradually lower their head due to following the treat until they rest in a prone position. Once your dog is prone, say "lay down" so that your dog will associate that phrase with their current position.

Activity description
Due to their thick coats and strong builds, Siberian Indian Dogs can trek through the snow with ease. Due to this particular breed of dog's natural comfort levels with snowy environments, Siberian Indian Dogs make great companions for snow hiking trips. As the name implies, snow hiking is very similar to regular hiking. You'll have to plan a bit differently than you would hiking normally, but the basic idea behind both activities is exactly the same; keep your dog close by your side as the two of you trek from one end of a hiking trail to another end off in the distance.
Step
1
Prudent preparation
As with most hiking based activities, the hardest part is the preparation phase. Granted, preparing for a snow hiking trip is a bit easier than planning for a traditional hike because you at least know you'll need to bring along a number of snow supplies right off the bat. Otherwise, you'll need to take your time when planning so that you don't leave essential items behind or bring too many miscellaneous things along.
Step
2
The buddy system
It'll be in full effect during the trip; no matter what else you do during the trek, always keep your dog within arm's reach of yourself. It's perfectly fine to bring a leash along for the journey if you feel that your dog would be tempted to veer from the path otherwise. However, in our experience, we've found that Siberian Indian Dogs tend not to run off as much as other breeds once they've grown very close to their human companions.

Activity description
Siberian Huskies and American Indian Dogs are both very smart dog breeds who tend to solve problems via very unconventional means. Their Siberian Indian Dog offspring have definitely retained that trait, as these dogs have the potential to become great problem solvers if they're properly trained. Dog puzzles are fun and interactive ways to train your dog's brain while also helping to reinforce a number of positive behavioral traits that you'd like your pet to keep up. Dog puzzles come in various shapes and sizes, models, makes, and difficulty levels so you'll have a wide range of options to chose from in terms of finding the right kinds of puzzles for your dog.
Step
1
How dog puzzles work
While dog puzzles can vary greatly in terms of how each one specifically works, they all function similarly in a general sense; pet parents load the puzzle up with dog treats of their choosing then hand them over to their pets so that they can solve the puzzle and receive their tasty rewards. Some dog puzzles function by encouraging your dog to twist and pull levers with their teeth while others encourage them to lift pieces off of a board in a certain order. In the end, however, dog puzzles work very similarly to one another.
Step
2
Finding the right puzzle
Dog puzzles are divided into a number of different categories based on things like difficulty and intended age ranges. While there's nothing wrong with getting your Siberian Indian Dog an easy puzzle starting out, we recommend getting a few puzzles of a higher difficulty as well because your dog will run through those easier puzzles in no time!

Flirt Poles

Flirt poles are fun devices that essentially work like fishing poles but for dogs. Flirt poles have small lures attached to one of their ends that dogs will spend plenty of time chasing after in an attempt to catch the lure. While holding the pole, your job will be to playfully move the lure around in order to coax your Siberian Indian Dog into chasing after it.

Snow Fetch

The next time you and your Siberian Indian Dog are planning on heading out to the snow, bring a few items to play fetch with. You'll soon find that playing fetch in the snow is a completely different animal as opposed to playing fetch in warm environments or on even ground. You don't technically have to do anything differently than you would playing a normal game of fetch, but we do advise bringing some warm clothes and snowshoes for this activity.

Conclusion

Siberian Indian Dogs are certainly some of the coolest looking and acting dogs we've had the pleasure of writing; due to their calm demeanors and unique appearances, these dogs just exude an aura of cool that you can't help but admire. Siberian Indian Dogs really do have the potential to make great companions for just about anyone, save for folks who aren't fans of the great outdoors or people who'd have to leave their pets alone for long periods of time; as mentioned before, Siberian Indian Dogs are incredibly social dogs who will give as much love and respect as they get from their human family members.
