Challenge your little pooch to learn how to solve puzzles. With dog puzzle toys, which can easily be found in pet stores and online, you can watch your dog learn to solve complex problems to earn a treat reward. These puzzle toys generally cost less than $20, and you can purchase inexpensive treats to put inside of them. These puzzles can be done indoors on days of bad weather or outdoors when it is nice outside. These puzzles won't require a lot of work from you as the dog owner, which makes this an ideal activity for really busy days in your life.
Since these little dogs can have a lot of energy, you might want to consider going on a short hike with them as a fun activity. You don't have to live near mountains to have a place to go no a challenging walk. Look for trails or bodies of water that you can hike through. Forests can also be challenging places to hike. Hikes are a great source of exercise for both you and your pooch, which is why it is one of our favorite activities to do with a Silkinese. With an activity of this caliber, it is important that you don't push too hard right away. Start slow to build endurance. This is a challenging activity, but it doesn't cost a lot of money, and it is something that you can do on any day with nice weather.
