Best Three Things to do with your Rescue Dogs BC

July 16, 2018

Today I'd like to remind you of three fun things to do with your furriest friend. Of course, there are many more, and the 'Big 3' are hotly debated. Bear with me as I suggest the biggest 3. These are going to be obvious for most but it’s still fun to write about as I relate to my dog and I’m sure you relate to your rescue dogs bc

Chase

Your dog loves to chase, the most fun they have chasing is in an open field with some water nearby in case they get thirsty, they need shade also. If there are animals nearby for them to run after, that will make them happy. It is also a great workout for you. You can just see how happy your friend is to be running around. Indy is pretty good at chasing the tennis ball when I play with him in the dog park. He isn’t as fast or has a coordinated mouth compared to a border collie but he also it’s the clumsiest like the smaller breeds. He is kinda in the middle as far as his athletic performance. Once he grabs the ball he MUST take a victory lap of course and he as trouble letting the ball go on command, but eventually does, just like most rescue dogs bc. He takes time to get it down right.

Swimming

Some dogs love to swim. They enjoy the feeling of the water, and their famous 'doggie paddle.' Dogs need good supervision, look at them once in a while, just in case they get caught in a bad situation. Dogs are decent swimmers, so don't worry too much. Just go an have fun with your dog in a new environment!

Indy is such a terrible swimmer, when I say terrible I mean non-existent. He won’t go deep enough to get his body wet, only up to his legs. After doing some research I think he exhibits typical behaviour of most Samoyed like other Canadian dog breeds. He just doesn’t like to swim, unfortunate for him but good for me cause his mop fur would take a whole day to dry out naturally.

Hide and Seek

Hide and seek can be entertaining. If you hold a treat out and hide it, that can be fun. Hide and Seek can turn into chase, but it really depends on what you're going for. I like to surprise my dog by throwing an object but keeping it in my hand. Hide and Seek can be fun too because you get close to your dog, and you can hang out. You can also try to figure out what they are thinking. It is always a mystery!

Indy isn’t the best at hide and seek. We recently tried the #whatthefluff challenge and he just kinda sat there knowing everything was going to be fine and it didn’t phase him haha.
