Default A day at the beach with Meeru (video). Question: what is your chiís favorite activity

Meeruís favorite activity is to spend time on the beach. He just loves it! As we both have fulltime jobs we try to go to the beach in the weekends. Watch Meeru have great fun on the beach and do all sorts of stuff, including chasing seagulls, swimming, practicing tricks, digging holes, etc.. My favorite part is where he beats my husband in a sprint: man vs. chihuahuaÖchihuahua wins! We hope you have as much fun watching this video as we had putting it together. My question to you all is: what is your chiís favorite activity?


Just a couple of comments. When we are at the beach with MeeruÖ

1. We make sure we have sufficient water and food for Meeru throughout our stay and offer it to him regularly;
2. We make sure Meeru only plays with dogs that are under clear control of their owners. If required we step in to correct the other dog and/or Meeru;
3. We only let Meeru swim if the temperature of the water allows it and if we are nearby. We always have a towel at hand in case it is windy;
4. We always make sure we donít overextend our stay at the beach, in particular on warm or cold days. Over time we build up our stays at the beach very very gradually. Our first visit to the beach was just a couple of minutes;
5. We avoid any busy parts of the beach. We understand some people just donít like dogs.

Just a friendly piece of advice: please consider these comments (and we are sure there are many other things to take into consideration) when taking a young Chihuahua to the beach. Have fun!!!

Oh my gosh, I am cracking up watching him swim! Great video, Meeru is so so cute! His little doggy pawprints at the start are adorable too. I wish mine liked to swim! We arent close to any beaches, but have lake and river access and they just do not like it. Only Leo voluntarily goes in, and he just wades Meeru is a such a beach dog, youre lucky!
We have a big state park here with fields, trails, woods, water etc that allows off leash dogs, hiking there is by far their favorite activity. Then comes chewies and cuddling up for a nap
Thanks for sharing, I loved it!

Thank you for your great response! Happy you enjoyed it. Just for the record: given a choice, Meeru would always choose a chewie or a nap over a bit of swimming, anytime, anyplace As part of Meeru's socialization process we made sure he feels comfortable around open water but it is not like he plundges into the sea the moment we arrive at the beach. I guess it is not in the Chi's nature.

It sounds like you live in a great area to walk the dogs. Funny to read that Leo goes in voluntarily as he seems to be the smallest of the three, correct? By the they way, all look so beautifull! Beautifull colours also! We are actually now in the Ardennen (which is a large forrest area in Belgium) for a holiday break where we do hiking too. It is just as much fun as the beach we found out! Once again thanks for your response and I would love to see your chi's in action. If there is a link, please let me know.

I loved the video! SO cute! It made me laugh! Very good rules to go by while going to the beach with any doggie! =)

Wow! Such a great video! I was so intrigued the entire time! I don't have a beach around me either, so Roxy has never been to the beach. I wonder if she'd love to swim like Meeru! I just love that he's such a beach bum. He totally loves it! I love his tricks too, especially zig-zagging through your legs. I'm going to need to teach Roxy that now! I love that Meeru just had to get dirty right before you went home! LOL!

Thanks so much for sharing the video! I'm so jealous you can go enjoy the beach like that and take Meeru with you!

Thank you for your beautifull response! I am sure Roxy would love the beach. I think all dogs, big or small, love the beach. Roxy is such a beautifull dog. I love the white paws and the brown colour! The zig-zagging (weaving) is a relative easy trick to learn. Just lure Roxy with a tiny piece of treat to walk through your legs back and forth. I am sure Roxy will pick it up in no time. There is a movie on this forum where you can see Meeru do all sorts of tricks including weaving (you can see how I lure him through my steps). If you have any questions don't hesistate to ask. Needless to say I am more than happy to help, if required.

Once again, thank you for your warm reaction. We are currently hiking in the Ardennes (Belgium forest) and are tempted to make a small video of Meeru hiking with us. Coming to this cinema soon!
