Also, playing is necessary, you will not walk away from this one. Playing is essential because it helps burning the energy that this little fella has, and it strengthen the bond between you and your dog. The yard helps your dog burning the energy he has significantly.

So, three hours in the yard on top of the daily walk will do the trick. However, if you do not have a yard, you can take your dog to nearby dog parks and give him that off-leash time to spend with other dogs.

Teaching your dog how to stay at home is crucial, and here shines the crate training. After the crate training, you should not feel worry leaving your dog at home alone. (More on how to train your dog here).

10. Hello, I Want to Play a Game

As we said earlier, you are about to brace yourself into a storm of playfulness. So, we recommend you buying a Frisbee. If you have a yard, you should set up a flirt pole so that your dog enjoys the maximum of his play time.

Also, you need to set yourself ready for tug of war. Tugging is necessary to release the urge to bite. It’s more of subtle training than playing and that is why playing with your dog is good.

Most of the recommended games require the basic commands such as fetch, search, and hide and seek.

Praises and treats should be given at the end of the game whenever your dog finishes the required task.

11. Toys Are The Joy of a Dog’s Life

It is not just a toy, it is satisfaction.

The toy brings satisfaction to the dogs needs of chewing and biting. If you do not get your dog a toy, then his mental state would collapse, and the furniture as well.

The toy provides stimulation both mentally and physically. There will be some behavioral disorder if you do not provide your dog with a toy. (More on what toy to pick for your dog here.)

12. Health Problems: PLEASE TAKE CARE OF YOUR SIBORGI

Like any dog, The Siborgi may develop medical problems as he grows up; even if you selectively breed your dog, eventually he might pick up an illness that is common in his crossbreed.

The Siborgi is relatively healthy, and enjoys a happy 13-15 years of his lifespan. However, there are some medical problems that his parents suffer which he can develop.

So, your dog prone to multiple illnesses; of which we will mention only the major common ones. The health conditions are canine hip dysplasia, eye defects, intervertebral disc disease, and uveodermatologic syndrome.

To identify some of these issues, a veterinarian may recommend hip, eye, and DNA tests for the dog.

Though this part sounds shady, your dog is most likely to enjoy a happy healthy life because Super-duper cute is not sickness proof.

13. Barking and Howling Like Music To Your Ears

The Siborgi is very vocal because he comes from artistic ancestries. The Siberian Husky is very known for his melodic howling, and The Pembroke Welsh Corgi owners remarked that their dog pretty much barks at anything and anyone.

So, I present to you the perfect combination of high level of howling and barking. If you are not a big fan of noisy dogs, or you live in a crowded place, the Siborgi is unfortunately not recommended for you.

However, this combination is not a big deal because the fact you want to get a dog means that you have barking and howling on your Wishlist of things to have.
