Have Fun With Your Puggle!

May 20, 2008
The weather is finally getting nicer and your Puggle is likely antsy to go outside and PLAY! He has been cooped up all winter long, and that energy has been built up for some time now! I know mine are anxious to get outside. They just love playing in the back yard with the kids.

There are so many "fun" things that you can do with your Puggle! They do not always have to be stuck in the house or kennel when you are going outside. Let them tag along.

However, before you can do this, it is important that your Puggle has been trained and WILL listen to you when you give commands. It is important to the safety of your dog and for your own sanity! Once you have gone through all of the stages of training, and you have shown your dog whose boss, it is okay to play! Take him outside and let him get some fresh air and burn off some of that pent up energy from the winter months!

I have learned that people simply just do not know what their Puggle can do, and they do not know how to play with their dog. It is amazing the things your dog can do, and the fun you are likely missing out on. Here are some ideas to get you started with a fun filled summer with your four-legged companion:

Hide and Seek - This one is so much fun. And, the best thing is your dog is always it! You get to hide each and every time. And, your dog is truly amazing at seeking. Try it. You will be surprised at how much fun your dog is at playing hide and seek.

Flag football - Teach your dog as one of his "tricks" during training how to pull the flag off of you. This will prepare him for the awesome game of flag football. The kids and Puggles love this one. However, since Puggles are usually short, you will need to place the flag somewhere he can reach it! Frisbee - All dogs love to catch the Frisbee. Your dog will enjoy this for hours and hours. Of course, Frisbee golf may be out of the question!

Fetch - This all time classic is probably one of your Puggle's favorite game. Always include this game in your agenda for the week!

Water Hose - Your dog will like to chase the water stream. They could spend hours just chasing after it or running through a sprinkler.

Go to the Park - You don't always have to stay in the backyard to play. Venture out and give your Puggle some new and exciting experiences. Just be sure your Puggle is fully trained and will obey you when you are out and about.

Go to the Lake - Does your dog like to swim? Many people will likely never know. Does he like to play in the water? There are actually dog life jackets available online. I would definitely recommend getting one for your Puggle for his own safety, but other than that, throw him in and see if he likes it! More than likely, he will have the time of his life!

These are just some ideas that I have thought of with my own Puggles. Be creative and give your dog the time of his life by just playing. And, in turn, your's will give you and/or your family a lot of fun memories!
