Owning a Toy Poodle is more than just grooming, feeding and training. As people-oriented dogs, they are eager to please their owners and spend time with them. Owners should therefore realize that bonding plays an important role in order to come up with a healthy and happy Toy Poodle. Below are some suggestions on how to bond with your canine best friend.
Watch movie. One of the best ways to bond with your dog is to watch movie together. Your Toy Poodle will definitely love to watch a movie where the main characters are dogs. Movies like Beethoven movie series, The Adventures of Milo and Otis, Disney’s One Hundred and One Dalmatian, Homeward Bound and Dr. Dolittle are some of the good choices. A bag of popcorn or chips for you and few bones for Fido will complete the fun!
Grooming. Grooming is more than just keeping your dog clean and pleasing. While you are bathing or brushing your Toy Poodle, bonding is made along the way. Your touch will certainly create love and friendship that could last for years. Just choose what type of brush and other grooming tool is best suits your dog’s needs.
Playtime. Play time is more enjoyable for your dog when you are the playmate. Playing Frisbee is not just fun but will also keep your dog in perfect shape. Toys like chew toys, fetch toys, plush toys, kongs and stuffed toys will also make play time enjoyable.
Walking. A walk around the block or in the nearest park is best for you and your dog. Remember to vaccinate your dog against ticks, fleas and other diseases before you take him out.
Get away. Next time you plan a vacation, include your dog in it. Look for dog friendly hotels and accommodations. When you intend to travel by plane, ask the airlines for rules and regulations regarding flying with pets. Plan ahead of time to ensure a fun and safe travel. However, a trip to a nearby beach on a warm sunny day is also ideal.
Shopping. Let Fido pick out his own toys. If it’s alright for the pet store to allow your dog into the store, let him pick out his own toy. In this way, you can be sure that he really likes the toy you buy.
Train your dog. You can sign up for a dog training class with your dog. If that is impossible, train your dog yourself. All you need is good training method and at least 30 minutes daily with your dog. You can teach your dog basic commands and some tricks later on.
