The Standard Wauzer is a beautiful little dog with a big personality. They are a mixture of the West Highland White Terrier and the Standard Schnauzer. They don’t grow very big but let their personality give them height. They are energetic, fun, full of life, and love to please. They are also wizards when it comes to new tricks and tasks that require brains. Don’t underestimate how brilliant a Standard Wauzer can be. That’s why you should always try activities such as these below - whether they are an apartment dog or live with your family in a large home.
Little dogs seem to find learning how to beg far easier than big dogs, and the Standard Wauzer is no exception. Teaching your Standard Wauzer is not only going to provide them with beneficial mental stimulation, but it will also make them the life of any party. They pick it up quickly with five-minute sessions daily, and you can teach them in any weather as well. What’s more, teaching your dog to beg is a free activity that only requires the use of kibble or treats. If you want to teach your Standard Wauzer cool tricks, this is one to have up your sleeve.
As any dog owner will know, trying to entertain your pet when it’s raining outside is a challenge. You have to think outside the square and come up with activities they can do indoors to keep them busy and out of trouble. Creating a food shaker may be an excellent idea. Firstly, it appeals to your Standard Wauzer’s love for food, then it adds in the challenge of making them discover how to get it out. All you need for this easy half-hour activity is treats or kibble, a PVC pipe, and a drill. It takes mere minutes to create but offers hours of fun.
It might seem impossible to find an activity for your Standard Wauzer that stimulates them mentally and physically, but that’s where hoop jumping comes in. This sunny-day and affordable activity is one you can carry out in 10-minute sessions with only treats and a hula hoop necessary. It tests their problem-solving capabilities while also offering physical exertion at the same time. They have to continually jump higher and higher while being rewarded for their efforts! You can also buy a hula hoop from most children’s stores for an affordable price to get started. Head out to your lawn with your excitable Standard Wauzer and give it a try!
The Standard Wauzer is a very social dog, meaning a trip to the dog park should form part of your routine. At least once a week, take them to the park for half an hour to an hour of play. Put them in the small dog enclosure and keep an eye on them. It may also pay to check the fence lines as Standard Wauzers love to dig!
Along with digging, Standard Wauzers love to chew. Therefore, chew toys should be available in your house at all times! If you want them to stop chewing your shoes and other items, make sure you place toys in strategic areas around your home. They will love searching the house for them, before setting down to play quietly on their own.
Whether you’re a family, individual, a homeowner or an apartment dweller, a Standard Wauzer will fit into your life seamlessly. They aim to please, have a pawsitive disposition, and enjoy nothing more than to see you happy. Return the favor by never letting them get bored. Try out these activities above with your fluffy friend and reap the rewards of a well-rounded pup who thinks the world of you.
