Great Activities You Can Enjoy With Your Dog  

Here is an introduction to some great things people do with their dogs. Most activities welcome all dogs, whether purebred or of mixed breed heritage. Some of these activities are classed as "working dog" activities, but are also done on a recreational basis, or as a public service. Some dog activities are purely recreational in nature, while others are competitive dog sports. Many of these activities may be new to you. I have chosen my links based upon how welcoming they are to the merely curious.


People who play with their dog, stay with their dog.

Why do dog activities matter? Why promote them? Dog activities matter because they help dogs keep their homes.
When people and dogs do things together it is good news all around. Many of these activities provide the structure that helps people learn to better communicate with their dogs. The dogs have a better opportunity to learn good manners. That makes them easier to live with and less likely to be given up. The activities help people get in touch with one another to share information. That also helps people to learn about dogs, to avoid problems, and to solve them in a healthy way. The activities provide exercise in a fun way that boosts the relationship. The exercise, in turn, reduces boredom. A dog that exercises with its human is less likely to have behavior problems. A wonderful side benefit is that these activities can be a mental boost for humans and dogs alike.

Do we need lessons on having fun with our dogs?

All the evidence is, yes, we need to learn how to have fun with our dogs. Too many people just don't know how much fun their dog can be. Their relationship is one way; they haven't learned to communicate. They need help learning how to have fun with their dog. When they enjoy their dog they are motivated to work through problems, to solve them instead of giving up on the dog.

And yes, your mutt can play too.

The big surprise to me was how many activities I can do with my mixed breed dogs. And the variety of sports, games, and just plain good times was also an eye opener. Many of the activities listed here will be new to you. Some of them you may have seen on TV, but never thought of getting involved in yourself. Well plunge right in and explore. You and your dog will be glad you did.

Why some people always feel cold while others are always hot !
Why some people always feel cold while others are always hot !
Most of us know that one person who always walks around without so much as a warm hat to wear even when it’s ferociously cold, as well as that other person who continuously complains about being freezing even on a scorching hot day.


We decided it was high time to figure out just what exactly is going on here.

So, what’s the reason?

Why some people always feel cold while others are always hot !
Why some people always feel cold while others are always hot !
  • If you’ve ever felt a sudden bout of the chills or a feverish heat and yet there’s no change in the surrounding room or outside temperature, it might simply be that you’ve fallen seriously ill. If you suspect this might be the case, there’s not much you can do about it yourself — just go to a doctor straight away.
  • If you find that everyone at work is wrapped up in warm clothing whilst your sitting sweating in a thin blouse or shirt, then it may very well be that your higher body temperature is the result of stress caused by a tough work schedule, or family/relationship problems. The only thing you can do here is learn to deal with life better. Let go of worries and thoughts that really aren’t important, and think positively.
  • Even if the temperature in the room or outside is normal, many of us may feel somewhat off based on our emotional state. Reports show that when people feel isolated, alone or depressed, they are more likely to feel the shivers. The opposite is true for the times we feel connected and more social. That warm, fuzzy feeling that happens when you’re surrounded by people you love spending time with? It really is a physical feeling that makes us more receptive to heat and leaves us feeling warmer and happier than if we were surrounded by strangers.
Four methods for dealing with a higher/lower body temperature:


  1. It might sound obvious, but wear the right clothing according to the weather. We all know how much we need to wrap up or dress down in cold and hot weather; let the view outside the window help you decide what to take out of your wardrobe for the day.
  2. Certain foods in different climates will help our internal balance of hot and cold take place, such as eating soups and carbohydrates to stay warm during the winter months. Vegetables and greens along with lightly portioned meals should benefit you during the hotter, summer months.
  3. Setting the thermostat between 70-75 degrees will also help you maintain the perfect temperature for the average person, and finding your sweet spot in that range is crucial to feeling comfortable.
  4. The final trick to avoid extreme heat or cold may just be in our heads. Apparently,visualizing warmer places like tropical paradises is actually proven to release chemical endorphins that assist in maintaining body heat.
