Wire Pom Terriers are very curious by nature - they just have to get to the bottom of everything! Due to their intelligence, this breed always wants to know how things work and they will go to all lengths to "figure things out". While you may not want your Wire Pom Terrier to "discover" how an outlet works or teach themselves how to unlock the puzzle that is the toilet lid, you can easily satisfy your Wire Pom Terrier's need to learn with these fun activities. None of these puzzle games are expensive and they can all be done inside, away from any harsh passing weather.
Step
1
Muffin tin puzzle
Grab a standard sized muffin tin and place your dog's favorite treats inside each cup. Place a tennis ball on top of each muffin cup and put the tin on the ground for your Wire Pom Terrier. Your dog will be able to smell the treats in the muffin tin but they will have to learn to knock the tennis balls out of the way in order to uncover their prize!
Step
2
Cup game
Set up three to five plastic cups on the floor, upside down so that the mouth of the cup in on the ground. Put a few treats under one cup and then ask your Wire Pom Terrier where the treats are. The cups all look the same....where could the treats be? Your clever little Wire Pom Terrier will figure it out for sure!
Step

Buy your dog a fun treat puzzle and see how long it takes for them to figure out the secret to getting at their prize. With so many different types of treat puzzles available, your Wire Pom Terrier has an endless supply of puzzle entertainment (as long as you keep buying them!).

Activity description
Wire Pom Terriers are typically very active little dogs. However, they tend to also have inherited the Pomeranian love for napping. If your dog is known to take nice long snoozes in their favorite spot, they will really enjoy getting their nap area upgraded. You don't want your Wire Pom Terrier just to sleep on the floor, right? They need a deluxe napping section of the house where they can really get a good sleep. This activity can be free if you just use some nice nap equipment from around your house or you can opt to splurge a little on your pup. This makes for a great cold weather activity when your Wire Pom Terrier will be dying to cuddle up in a nice warm bed.
Step
1
Plan it
Think about how you want to make over your Wire Pom Terrier's favorite nap spot. Do you think your dog would like a pile of blankets they can paw at to make a nice little nest? Or would they rather just have a big fluffy dog bed? Plan what you will use to make your dog's nap spot extra comfy and don't forget to make it match the rest of your house!
Step
2
Set up
Arrange the pillows, blankets, dog bed, decorative toys, and anything else you are using to make your dog's nap spot extra special. Consider how easy it will be to put the area back together if your pup pushes pillows around. Make it nice and easy to clean and straighten up. Your dog will be in this spot often so you will want it to be cozy, pretty and functional at the same time.
Step
3
Time to relax
Show your pup their new nap set up and put a few treats on the place where they can lay to coax them into the ideal spot. Lay down with your dog and conjure up your inner Pomeranian and take a nap by your dog's side. With so many fluffy blankets and pillows, it will be easy to fall asleep with your dog!

Activity description
Both Pomeranians and Wire Fox Terriers love to be free, running around without restrictions. This is because of their inherent need to explore, smell new things and get out some of the excess energy that is stored in that little body. Getting out and exploring with your dog is one of the best things you can do for your pup's mental and physical health. Exploring new places is a very inexpensive activity as you can do it right in your own neighborhood. While there is more to explore outside when the weather is nice, you can also go on indoor exploration trips with your Wire Pom Terrier.
Step
1
Dog park
Find a local dog park where you can bring your Wire Pom Terrier to play. There are thousands and thousands of new and interesting smells at a dog park that your pup will love. Of course, there are other dogs to play with and likely a few obstacles for your pup to climb on. Dog parks are an adventurous dog's dream!
Step
2
New trails
Wire Pom Terriers love going for walks but you may be getting bored of walking around the same places in your neighborhood. This can easily be remedied by just walking down a new road, driving to a new part of town to walk or finding a few new hiking trails where you can take your Wire Pom Terrier. You don't need to go far to find new, exciting places to walk!
Step
3
New house
Thanks to the small size of your Wire Pom Terrier, you can easily take your pup with you when you visit your friends and family. When your Wire Pom Terrier gets to explore a new house, they will come alive with every discovery. A new comfy couch? A new soft rug? Water in a different bowl? Everything is exciting when you and your pup are in a new place.
