The Yorkipoo breed is a cross between Yorkshire Terrier and the Poodle. These are small and adorable dogs that love human company, making them the perfect pets.
Yorkipoos possess an exceptional amount of energy, and if this energy is not put to good use, it can lead to destructive behavior. If you own a Yorkipoo, there are some fun activities that you can engage in with your dog. Here are ten best activities that will not only be a good exercise for your dog but will also strengthen your bond.
1. Have some time on the tracks
Yorkipoos have a great deal of energy to spare even after a long run. They are highly active, and they love being in open spaces where they can have a joyful run and some jumps for entertainment. You can take your dog to dog parks and watch it enjoy itself, running and wagging its tail.
2. Play hide-and-seek
Yorkipoos are really intelligent and have a great memory, apart from being energetic. They’re fun to play with, and you’ll also have some memorable time with them.
A simple hide-and-seek game will not only exercise your dog’s memory but also familiarize it with its surroundings.
If you are a yoga enthusiast, then Yorkipoos can be your perfect yoga partner. Doga, which is a frankenword of the words “dog” and “yoga”, is the latest trend in owner-dog activities. Doga involves meditation, massages, and stretches. Since Yorkipoos are quick to grasp concepts, they will not have trouble adapting to a good Doga session.
4. Daily walks
As you might already know by now, Yorkipoos love open spaces. A walk can be the perfect exercise for your dog, without exerting it too much.
These dogs are really adjustable with any kind of surroundings, and they are comfortable around any weather. So nothing is stopping you from a quality time walking with your little dog!
Puzzles are another great way to have fun with your dog while exercising its brain. Yorkipoos, with their intelligent behavior, can solve them quickly, so you better buy a challenging one for them. You can also do your own food puzzles to engage your dog.
Yorkipoos are highly athletic, with a lot of energy to spare. Therefore, fetch will be the ideal game for them. Simply use a treat, a toy, or even a rubber ball, and ask your dog to fetch it after you throw it away.
This is a great physical exercise for your dog. But most importantly, it is a training for your dog to obey simple commands.
7. A ride-along
Yorkipoos are great to go with anywhere. Many dogs are not very comfortable and great to go along in a drive, but you would not have to worry about that with a Yorkipoo. They will adjust well, and with their memory, they will also remember most of the route! Long drives can also be a great bonding session for you and your dog.
8. Park visits
Yorkipoos are extremely friendly and are a happy soul around people. So, it would be fun to take your Yorkipoo to parks and public places.
However, since Yorkipoos are smaller dogs, keep them on a leash in dog parks, as otherwise, they may engage in fights with bigger dogs.
9. Movie nights
Yorkipoos love resting and cuddling in a warm condition. And what’s better than a warm, close hug and some cuddles while you’re relaxing on your couch, watching a movie? Although your dog may not understand the plot of the movie, it can still be fascinating to watch for your dog!
Who would not love to have some great pictures of their Yorkipoo? They are a treat to look at, with their fluff, and it’s great to have a cute photoshoot at home or anywhere. They can be trained easily, so it will be a hassle-free photoshoot. You can also incorporate some fun costumes to make things interesting.
Yorkipoos are sociable dogs that love to engage in simple activities with their owners. Spending quality time with your little dog will keep it happy and healthy always. It is also a great
way to strengthen your bond.
These were a few simple yet fun activities you can try with your Yorkipoo. You can try all these activities, and see which one your dog likes the best. In the end, it’s all about your little buddy’s preference.
