Active Games and Other Activities

Active Games and Other Activities:

Retrieving – "sit" "stay" "get it" "out" – use lightweight dumbbells, Foxtails, Tennis balls

Jumping – Start slowly. Keep the jumps low and the landing surface soft, especially for young dogs. Avoid redogitive jumping or height until your dog is completely through growing.

Frisbee catching.

Bike riding, jogging – start slow and build distance gradually, soft surfaces and short distances for young dogs, check pads before and after every run, avoid the heat of the day.

Cart or sled pulling – The Iditarod! A Northern breed favorite. Cart pulling is enjoyed by Newfoundlands, Bernese Mt. Dogs, Pyrenees, Siberian Huskies, Malamutes and others.

Swimming – is good exercise and a great way to cool off. Not all dogs naturally know how to swim! Doggy life jackets are a good idea when boating. Important: Swimming pools are strictly off-limits to unsupervised dogs.

Tips to Keep Your Dogs in Good Humor:

Provide exercise to your dog several times a day.
Don’t take the same route everyday when you take your dog for a walk.
Don’t use corrective measures such as yelling and hitting since they only increase anxiety in dogs.
Don’t let the dog ‘lounge’ around. Be sure to provide enough stimuli to your dogs when you are present at home. Play with them.
