A Soft-Coated Wheatzer is the unique breeding of a Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier and a Miniature Schnauzer. As both of these breeds are unique in their looks, you can only imagine what the offspring is! This beautiful and rare dog will suit any family with or without pets and children. They are full of energy thanks to the Terrier and also have a relatively high prey drive. What's more, they require at least an hour of physical and mental stimulation every day – if not more. Left to their own devices, they are destructive, naughty and can get upset. If you tend to be away from home a lot, you may need to arrange care or opt for a different dog. Stuck for activity ideas?

In many cases, dogs don’t mind being at home while you go to work or out to do errands. In the case of a Soft-Coated Wheatzer, however, it’s not likely. If you do, you will come home to holes dug in your yard and other items likely destroyed. Soft-Coated Wheatzers can become anxious when you’re not there and prefer to be with you at all times. That’s why a doggy daycare facility can become a necessary activity in their day. You can drop them off in the morning, pick them up after a full day at work, then take them home exhausted. It’s an expensive activity, but you only need to supply a toy and leash, and it’s effortless to do.
Soft-Coated Wheatzers do not fare well in the heat as their coats are warm and thick. Therefore, you may like to introduce your dog to pupsicles if you want them to be able to cool down and regulate their body temperature. These delicious treats for dogs are effortless to make, will cool your pup down for at least half an hour, and only need a few kitchen ingredients and treats. They are also affordable and fun to build in bulk for future use. You can set your dog outside in the shade with one of these and watch as their face lights up. They are an excellent option for Soft-Coated Wheatzers.
Need to cool down over the summer weeks? Then, treat your family and Soft-Coated Wheatzer to a dip in the water. You can fill up a paddling pool at home or even hit the nearest local watering hole. The Soft-Coated Wheatzer’s fur also doesn’t take long to dry, making it quicker to take care of with a towel.
Soft-Coated Wheatzers require around one hour of exercise per day, and you can give it to them in the form of a walk. You can walk around your neighborhood, to a park, on a nature walk, or even to your nearest dog park. Any walking activity is one that’s going to benefit both you and your dog.
There is no denying that your Soft-Coated Wheatzer is going to need more love, attention, and affection than many other breeds. But, given how loyal and loving they are, you won’t mind one little bit! Take the time to compile a list of fun activities for your dog. You can then work your way through them, making your dog feel like the most impawtant thing in your life.
