Temperament & Personality

A Boingle is a fun loving and spirited dog and enjoys being part of an active family. It always wants to be the center of attention and hates being lonely.

Exercise

Boingles require an average amount of exercise to remain healthy. Without activities it will show negative signs like digging, chewing and barking. A couple of long walks and visit to a dog park will be sufficient. Access to a fenced yard is necessary because this dog doesn’t adjust to an apartment life comfortably.

Grooming

Shedding is average so brushing it daily with a slicker brush is essential to remove loose hairs and debris. The owner has to be wary of the hair strands falling off on the floor. Bathing should be done only when necessary and in other days rubbing with a damp towel will also clean the dog. Its long ears are prone to infections, so weekly checkup and cleaning are required. Nails should be clipped only when they are too long and brush their teeth twice or thrice a week.

Health Problems

Hereditary issues concerning a Boingle include eye problems, intervertebral disk disease, hypothyroidism, beagle dwarfism, CBS, hip dysplasia and skin cysts. Owners should seek health clearances of both the parents and buy from a trusted breeder.

Training

This is a smart dog and is easier to train than others. The owner should keep the training short and exciting so that it doesn’t get bored quickly. Motivate them by offering treats, praises, and rewards. As a puppy, appropriate socializing and teaching necessary obedience skills is important.

Feeding

The Boingle’s diet must contain vitamins B and E, protein and fat to provide sufficient energy. Dog food can be fed 1½ to 3 cups a day. Prevent bloating by not feeding the dog after a period of vigorous exercise.
