Weimardoodles are exceptionally smart dogs who pick up new commands quickly. They can also be impulsive and act quickly which can be frustrating when they are reacting in a way you don't want them to. Activities for Weimardoodles like impulse training tricks are good for their minds and for their obedience. One of the most fun tricks to try is to place a treat on their nose and make them wait to get it until you say ok. This trick does require some patience on your part and the part of your pup, but it's relatively easy to teach.
Step
1
Sit and stay
The first step to this trick is to learn how to sit and stay. Start with sit. Use treats to teach your dog how to sit down on command. Sit is usually one of the first obedience commands owners teach their dogs because it is the basis of so many other tricks. After your dog learns to sit, teach them to stay until you release them. Make sure they know the command well and won't move until they hear your release word.
Step
2
Place the treat
This next piece can often be the hardest for you and your Weimardoodle. You're going to put them in a sit/stay and then try to balance a treat on their nose. Small training treats or small bones work best for this. Place their head to be level with the floor, balance the treat, and tell them to stay. They may move their head immediately and drop the treat. Don't let them eat it. Pick it up and try again.
Step
3
Release
Once your pup can keep their head still and balance the treat, release them and let them eat it! At first, make this "wait" only a few seconds. You want to let them know that you want them to hold still, and they may be impatient at first. Slowly, you can extend the length of time they need to balance the treat.

Activity description
If you've been dreaming about a hiking partner who will follow you over tall mountains to remote areas, look no further than the Weimardoodle. This dog was built for distance miles and their loyalty means they won't stray far from your side, even when the temptation to chase squirrels might lead them far away from you. Hiking is one of the best activities for Weirmardoodles because it allows them time to run, sniff, and explore. They'll use both their mind and body all day long and will arrive at the car happy, tired, and ready to curl up on the couch with you.
Step
1
Be prepared
Before you step foot on a hiking trail, it's important to be prepared for anything you might need during the day for yourself and your dog. You'll need to bring enough water for you and for your dog if there isn't enough water along the trail. You'll also need to bring some layers in case it gets cold or rainy, snacks for you and your dog, a map of the area, and a first aid kit just in case.
Step
2
Pick your trail
Finding the right trail for you and your dog might not be as easy as it sounds. Especially for your first trips out. Find a trail that isn't too steep or long to start. You're going to need to teach your dog the rules of the trail on these first outings, so pick a spot that isn't too busy so they can learn how to interact with other people., dogs, and wildlife on the trail in a calm setting.
Step
3
Hiking buddies!
Once your dog is used to going out on trails and how to properly greet new people, dogs, and potentially livestock, you are ready for any trail. Make a goal at the beginning of the summer to complete several long hikes and then have a blast working your way up to them with your furry hiking buddy.

Activity description
When the weather is rainy outside and your dog is getting antsy to do something fun, playing Find It is a great option. In this no-cost game, you'll hide your dog's favorite toy in a room and they must use all their senses to find where it's hidden. Not only will this activity tire them out as they search as fast as they can, but it will tire out their brains as they search and try to figure out where their toy went off too. Activities for Weimardoodles that include searching and thinking are an important part of their development.
Step
1
Teach "find it"
The first step to playing this game with your dog is to teach the "find it" command. Start by taking their toy and hiding it right in front of them in an obvious spot. Say "find it" in an excited voice and encourage them to get the toy. When they do, praise them and let them play with it a little before practicing again.
Step
2
Easy spots
When your dog understands the "find it" command, take them over to another room, and hide the toy without them seeing where you put it. Make sure it's not too hidden at first. Take them back in the room and tell them to "find it." When they do, let them play with the toy and praise them.
Step
3
More difficult
As your dog catches on to the game, you can increase the challenge by making them seek out harder spots. Hide the toy underneath a blanket or inside a basket. You can also expand the search into several joined rooms so there are more options. After 20 to 30 minutes, they should be pretty tired.

Play Ball

If you love to play baseball, but you never have anyone to bring the ball back from the outfield, why not teach your dog to get all your pop-flies and home runs?

Daily Walk

Make daily walks part of your routine. Walking around the block is not only good for your dog. It's good for you too.

Conclusion

Weimardoodles are loyal and sweet dogs who want nothing more than to be by your side on an adventure. These pups are great family dogs and fit well with people who truly believe their dogs are more than pets. They don't like to be left alone for very long, so make sure when you purchase this breed, someone will be available to hang out with them and receive all of their love if you're going to be gone long. They make wonderful therapy dogs and can learn to be the best dog in the office as long as they get outside to run and play throughout the day.
