We know what you are thinking. Finally, someone is paying attention to the lovely Silkins! And indeed, Silkins may not be the most popular breed of dog out there, but that does not mean that they are not as adorable and lovable as some of the more famous doggos in this world. They are quite small, so easy to overlook when thinking about a typical pup, and they are a cross between the Japanese Chin and the Silky Terrier, themselves not very well-known. However, they are quirky, they are lively, and they are happy little dogs that deserve attention and love, as well as a lot of fun activities to keep them occupied!
Silkins are adorable and sweet, but sometimes they need to hang out with other dogs, just to remind themselves that they are not human. Since Silkins are great apartment dogs, you may find yourself spending more time alone with your pup, which is fine, but from time to time, it is good to socialize your dog and let them make friends, or maybe even fall in love! So, why not schedule a doggy play date for your pupper? Find a friend or make a new one in your local dog park and have a fun day of activities with your small pups!
Remember when you were a kid and used to play with bubble blowers all the time? Remember how fun that used to be? Do you remember why you stopped? About 99.8% of adults cannot recall why they ever stopped playing with bubbles, and they also say that bubble blowers were providing hours and hours of fun, so, having this scientific fact in mind, why not go back to your childhood and introduce your Silkin to the magical world of bubbles? Small doggos such as your Silkin are not really made for strenuous exercise, however, they are more than willing to chase around the bubbles and make a fun day out of it!
Since Silkins are great apartment dogs, it shouldn’t be too hard to keep them calm and occupied even when the weather is bad and won’t allow you to go for long walks. One of the happiest moments in life is when you reward yourself with a delicious treat for being a good human, and the same case happens with dogs. They love getting treats, and they also love finding hidden gems where they did not expect them. So, hide some treats, and get to searching! Although, try to make the treats healthy and low calorie to avoid weight gain, and, as a result, joint problems and other health issues.
