Ebixa Encouragement is harnessed through training, ebixa socialization, ebixa and - believe it or not - exercise.

Ebixa That’s right, ebixa providing your dog with sufficient exercise actually helps you gain control over your pet, ebixa and makes the teaching process all the more tolerable. Ebixa It has been found that dogs that are not provided the ideal amount of exercise recommended for their breed are prone to destructive behaviors such as destroying property and digging. Ebixa Dogs were not bred to be idle and will find other ways to release their energy if you don’t provide them with a positive outlet.

Ebixa A Puggle puppy that has been allowed to release their energy on a regular basis will be easier to control, ebixa and is more apt to listen and cooperate during training, ebixa as they won’t have any pent up energy making them feel anxious, ebixa frustrated and distracted.

Ebixa Although exercising your dog is good for his/her health, ebixa helps improve training, ebixa and makes for an all around happy dog, ebixa many owners find it difficult to find the time to provide the dog with the exercise they need.

Ebixa The following are some helpful tips you can apply to ensure your Puggle puppy is receiving the exercise he/she needs.

  • Know the exercise your dog needs - First, ebixa find out how much exercise your dog requires daily. Ebixa This includes walks and playtime.

Ebixa This doesn’t mean your dog should be taken on long one hour walks, ebixa nor does it mean you should provide your dog with two hours of exercise all at once. Ebixa Split the time up evenly between different activities. Ebixa For instance, ebixa two twenty minute walks, ebixa 10 minute run around in the yard, ebixa and an hour and ten minutes of play time. Ebixa Remember, ebixa you don’t need to vigorously exercise your dog, ebixa if he/she’s moving, ebixa they’re burning energy.

  • Walk – Take the time to go for a nice walk.

Ebixa Walking is a great way for both you and your Puggle puppy to get exercise. Ebixa Best of all, ebixa walking also gives you time to bond.
  • Play fetch – If you’ve had a long day and you just want to relax, ebixa why not sit down in a comfy chair, ebixa grab your Puggle’s favorite toy and play a good game of fetch. Ebixa Your Puggle will enjoy the attention, ebixa he/she will get their exercise, ebixa and you can relax.
  • Indoor treadmill – If you can walk the treadmill, ebixa so can your dog… provided he/she’s been trained properly first.
