If you have a playful, water-loving Weimapeake, then you’re in for lots of fun. There are so many games you can play with this fun designer breed. If you want activities and games that will keep your dog entertained as well as developing their strengths, this guide is perfect for you. Water activities are great for the Weimapeake as they are water retrieving pooches. The parental make-up of this breed is the Chesapeake Bay Retriever and the Weimaraner and both are renowned for their webbed paws. As a member of the s-paw-ting group of dogs, the Weimapeake has a high energy level, which means they need plenty of exercise and agility to keep them active both mentally and physically. Occasionally, this breed is said to have a stubborn streak, so ensuring they are well trained and active is key to a healthy and happy canine.
The Weimapeake is very loyal, so it’s easy for owners to build a strong bond with their furry friend. It also means you can play some very exciting games with your sporty pooch. This activity plays on intelligence, it’s fun, and it’s good exercise. Although this activity can be played in any weather, warmer weather would be ideal. The concept of the game is that your dog will remember different toys, which will be placed in the paddling pool to be retrieved. This can be a ball, a rubber duck and anything similar. You might need to work with your canine pal so that they learn the names of the different items. The idea is for you to tell your pooch what item you want and they will retrieve it and put the correct item in the bucket. Running back and forth, and jumping into the water is great physical exercise, while selecting the correct item is exercising their mind.
If your canine pal is a talented swimmer, there is no reason why you can’t play fetch on the beach or at another location with an inviting body of water. Fetch is a popular, athletic game for our four-legged friends, making it a great way to burn energy. The important thing to consider for this game is, how good at swimming is your buddy? You know your pooch and their ability; this is crucial in this game as you don’t want them to end up in trouble while swimming. Keep your dog limited to a shallow area of the water and use a floating Frisbee. There are also inflatable swimming collars you can get for the dog who is not confident in the water. Safety first for our precious pooch!
Get your sprinklers ready, and let your doggy friend wade through them. Be prepared as they might be wary of the sprinkler and pounce towards it. You could play with a ball while the sprinklers are on, or you could even run through with your pal. This is a game that the children will love!
When your pooch is out of sight, line up some containers in a row, preferably around five or six. You shouldn’t be able to see inside of the containers. Put them all face down and put a treat under one of the containers. Walk your dog by the containers and allow them to smell the area and investigate. They need to indicate which one they think has the treat inside.
If your poochie pal loves life on the ocean waves, then why not try wave diving? Again, safety is of high priority here, so keep a close eye on your water-loving friend. This is a great way to build-up confidence in the sea. It’s simple, just run towards the oncoming wave at the beach until it splashes over you, then run back out. Repeat the process. This is quite an energetic activity and at first, you may have to join in with your buddy.
The Weimapeake is a very active hybrid that need lots of mental and physical stimulation. This is important for their development as a dog and will keep them happy and healthy. Negative behaviors are less likely if your pooch is kept busy and does not become bored. As a water retriever with webbed feet, water sports are fantastic for your dog, as are agility activities. There are many fun ways to keep your s-paw-ty friend busy and the great thing about the activities in this guide is the ability to take them up a notch.
