How to exercise a Snorkie?

Exercise is not only very important for your snorkie’s health, but it’s a great way to connect with your snorkie. You must remember that snorkie, like all small toy dogs, can get hurt if you jump from too high, especially puppies. This kind of dog will develop a dislocation of the patella, which is a dislocation of the hip and joint, so limit them to jump from height. There are some games you can play with your snorkie.

Agility training

You don’t need your snorkie to participate in a dog show to enjoy the benefits of teaching your dog some agility. When your dog is young, be careful of height, but you and your dog can have a lot of fun in the self-made obstacle course.

Frisbee sport

Most of us have seen professional dog disc competitions. Those games are usually when the big dog jumps into the air and grabs the frisbee easily. Your snorkie also wants to join the event! You may want to buy a baby Frisbee. It’s fun for both of you to teach your Yorker dog to run after him, grasp the time, and catch him in mid air. It’s also a way to exercise. You must not tear the frisbee out of the dog’s mouth.

Give encouragement to your Snorkie

You can train your Yorker dog to be flexible. When you first get this kind of training, take a small gift and a deal. Use the command word “give up” or “give up.” once your York gives you, reward him with a little hospitality and a lot of praise.

Play hide and seek

Order your snorkie to sit down and let your dog watch you “hide” around the family. The food should be small, crammed into many different areas Under the mat, behind the shoes, on the first floor of the stairs and so on, once you give the “go” order or “find”, your York can run around the house and collect food. Buy a Snorkie.

Keep snorkie safe

When you are walking, you can use a seat belt instead of a collar for toy breeds of dogs such as snorkie. These smaller dogs are more prone to tracheal collapse. This is a condition in which the structure of the trachea collapses, causing pain and breathing difficulties. Although dogs are genetically predisposed to this, the pressure on the neck can cause it when the dog is wearing a collar. If snorkie lunges forward or the dog’s owner pulls the dog’s leash back, the cartilage rings of the trachea will not be able to bear the force exerted on them and they will collapse inward.
