I have said before, Baxter is a LOT of dog packed into a tiny 8lb body. If you haven't read my intro thread, my Baxter is now an almost 9 month old Chi/Pekingese mix pup. He has a lot of energy..if we had a yard, he'd run around in circles all day long if we let him..lol. We take him for 1 long walk per day, and 2-3 short potty walks. We take him to the dog park as often as we can, because he loves running, chasing, and playing with other dogs and it tires him out..this only turns out to be maybe once a week because it's a hassle taking him on the train or bus, we don't own a car. We visit my dad and step moms house every few months where he plays with their dogs and gets tons of zoomies out in their large yard..But mostly his exercise/stimulation comes from his walks, going up and down the stairs, playing fetch, and learning tricks. I just don't feel like he's stimulated enough, he always wants to eat something or get into something he's not supposed to..like the trash..or he'll jump on tables/desks..he jumps HIGH. His new thing is trying to eat our hardwood floors. I think he maybe has anxiety problems..or obsessive behavior? He goes nuts when we put our coats and shoes on, because he doesn't want to be left alone..so we put him in his crate..and he whines & whines until he thinks we're gone. As soon as we get back, he goes nuts again until we let him out of his crate. He has also learned some human language..lol..if someone says "outside" he will bounce up and down until you take him out..or if you ask him if he's hungry he'll sit by his bowl and whine. We got him at 11 weeks old, and used the crate to housebreak him, he's perfectly housebroken and now is only in the crate for maybe 1-2 hrs a day most days. He doesn't "hate" the crate..he just hates being alone..I have started feeding his meals in his crate, and he gets frozen pb kongs to keep him occupied sometimes. He's very snuggly and loving when he's tired, don't get me wrong..he's the sweetest thing ever..I just want to make him happy/sane. What kinds of things do you do with your chi's to keep them busy, if you have an active one?
