A small but hyperactive “designer dog” that originated from the United States, the Yorkipoo is a cross between the Yorkshire Terrier and the Poodle (typically the Miniature or Toy kind). By mixing the two toy breeds, you get a smart, gentle and wonderful companion with a lot of energy to spare. When not stationed on your lap, Yorkipoos love to engage in different games and activities that involve a lot of movement. Don’t underestimate their size – Yorkies are quite active and boast impressive running and jumping skills. They can also be intelligent and highly trainable, particularly if their Poodle gene is more dominant. All in all, the Yorkipoo is a delightful breed to have as a pet.
Yoga is a famous discipline involving physical, mental and spiritual practices. For years now, yoga is being practiced by many as a way to unwind. For yoga enthusiasts who also happen to be dog owners, the rise in popularity of Doga could not have come at a better time. Doga, which is a portmanteau of the words “dog” and “yoga”, is the latest trend in owner-dog activities. During a Doga session, dogs and their owners engage in meditation and massage paired with some mild stretching. Instructors of this practice believe that being pack animals, canines are ideal for the discipline’s emphasis on connecting with other beings.
During the summer season, a whole lot of owner-dog activity opportunities present themselves. One of the best ways to spend a hot summer day is to have some fun in the water. A cool and one-of-a-kind experience that you can take on with your Yorkipoo is stand-up paddleboarding. In this activity, you and your dog balance yourselves on a paddleboard while treading on a calm body of water, usually a lake or river. This is a great endeavor to try with a Yorkipoo given their small size and ability to follow commands easily. Your pooch will surely enjoy taking in the picturesque views while spending time with you.
Most of the time, pet owners become excited and ecstatic when their four-legged friends learn some of the most common dog tricks in the book, such as “sit” or “stay”. While this is understandably enthusing to some degree, you should not limit your dog’s inventory of tricks to just the basics. The Yorkipoo, in particular, is an incredibly clever dog with a high level of trainability. Having a dog with quick learning abilities means that the possibilities are endless. You can move beyond the usual tricks and introduce your pooch to more difficult tricks that will leave other dog owners impressed and in awe.
Going on an afternoon cruise with your pooch is a simple but effective way to spend time together without much effort. More often than not, dogs enjoy car rides. They also enjoy seeing unfamiliar sights and spots. This activity is perfect when you cannot find the time to go on a longer trip with your dog.
Yorkies are some of the most adorable looking dogs and will make for great photoshoot models. Immortalize your pet by spending a day dressing your pooch up and making them look great on camera. All you need is a decent camera to preserve your dog’s memory for the next couple of years.
