Nowadays, breeders have a knack for combining different dog breeds in order to create a hybrid that exhibits the best qualities of each parent breed. The Tervoodle is a designer dog that mixes two breeds – the Belgian Tervuren and Poodle - that you might not expect will work well but actually do. The resulting breed is a large, working dog with an alertness and intelligence like no other. Tervoodles are also known for wanting to get really involved with their family’s lifestyle and activities. Therefore, as an owner of this breed, it is your responsibility to provide the physical, mental and emotional needs that they entail.
While there are some dogs that are happy to just stare out the window, spend the entire day sleeping or to just laze around the home, most canines need a good amount of exercise in order to stay fit and to use up any excess energy. Otherwise, these hyperactive dogs will end up exhibiting destructive behaviors, such as digging, barking and chewing, as an outlet. Tervoodles need enough exercise to stay happy and healthy. A fun activity that can help release your pooch blow off some steam is rollerblading. It works as an exercise for you and your pooch. The best part is that it is entertaining and can be done with any breed, including the Tervoodle.
One of the most destructive behaviors that a dog exhibits is digging. If you have a garden that you adore, it might be a challenge leaving your dog in your yard unattended because of their tendency to dig. However, you can actually use this digging instinct to your advantage. For dog owners who love to plant and garden, there is no digging tool more effective than an energetic dog. By letting your Tervoodle dig in a patch in your garden, you get to hit two birds with one stone – you allow your dog to expend energy and be physically stimulated and, at the same time, you save a lot of time that you would normally spend digging on your own with a shovel.
Most dog owners consider their canine friends to be a beloved part of their families. Because the United States is generally a dog-loving country, more and more facilities and services are being offered not just to the people but also to their four-legged friends. One of the more luxurious services that are now available to dogs are cruises. Yes, there is an increasing number of cruise companies and providers that are now opening their doors to dogs. The prices of these dog-friendly cruises range anywhere from budget to expensive, depending on the number of days, facilities offered, destinations and several other factors.
Most dog owners consider their dogs as their kid, so why not read to them like you would to your child? This may not have any significant impact on your dog but it is a good excuse to just lie around and snuggle up to each other.
Bubbles may be a game for children but they can be used as a great tool for entertaining your pooch. Dogs are naturally attracted to moving things, especially one as unusual to them as bubbles. Simply buy a bubble maker and watch as your dog tries to catch and pop the bubbles.
Despite being the result of an odd combo, the Tervoodle happens to be a beloved designer dog that has a lot to offer. Clever, vigilant and active, this hybrid dog has all the right pieces that make it an excellent choice for a watchdog, a family pet, an adventure chum and a day-to-day companion.
