Activity description

Thanks to the parentage of an English Bulldog, you will find that a Beabull’s activity requirements are minimal. Even when you set time aside for a game of fetch, you will see that within a quarter of an hour, they have either lost interest or would much rather find that sunny spot to sit and relax in. However, Beabulls are prone to obesity. Therefore, you should set at least 15 minutes aside per day to play a game of Fetch. It’s a game that you can play at home – either indoors or outdoors, and it won’t take much effort on your part. You will also find it’s a fun and free activity that will strengthen the bond between you and your dog.

Step
1
Location for fun
Before you play a game of fetch, work out where you want to play. If it’s raining, you can clear an area inside. A Beabull's medium size means that, depending on your home, fetch can become a rainy-day activity. Alternatively, you can take a trip to a park, play in your backyard, or even at the beach.
Step
2
Play and retrieve
Playing a game of fetch is effortless. Choose a toy, throw it a decent distance then wait for your dog to return with it. Within 15 minutes of continuous to-ing and froing, your beloved Beabull will be back, ready for a nap and in need of no more physical exertion for the day.

Activity description

If you are looking for a stimulating all-weather activity that can teach your dog some valuable skills, then it might be time to consider obedience training. Beabulls are not naughty dogs, given their intelligent parent breeds, but they do need to learn the basics from a puppy such as sit, stay, and come. When you take them to a training facility, you will find your pampered pooch is quick to learn but may require gentle encouragement to head in the right direction. While obedience training can be expensive, it’s a rewarding and helpful eight-week program that only involves your patience, your dog, a leash, and a treat to get started.

Step
1
Book in
If you are thinking about booking your dog in for obedience training, then there’s no reason to delay. Book in immediately and begin putting plans in place to make it a regular activity. Find a trainer within proximity to your home with excellent reviews, or chat with your local vet or dog club about valid options. Your Beabull is quick to learn so you’ll find you won’t need the best of the best when it comes to skilled trainers.
Step
2
Homework
Before you turn up for your first of many sessions, you need to do your homework about your dog. What do they need to learn? Do they have any problems? What are they doing well? If you don’t view your dog critically, it can be challenging to work on what you want to learn or fix. If you start your dog in training young enough, it will be a case of learning new habits instead of altering old ones.
Step
3
Train and practice
Training will take place over six to eight weeks, and doesn’t end when the lunch bell rings. When you pack up and go home, you need to be continually practicing what you learned at the training facility. Dogs require the same habits and routines, and if you stop doing what they learned in class, it will undo all that hard work.

Activity description

On a drizzly day, or during the colder months, it can be challenging to stimulate all your dog’s senses. While they love nothing more than to nap the day away, they also need their little minds to focus on something for at least part of the day. You can provide stimulation in the form of food puzzles. Food puzzles are items that you fill with treats or food, with the dog having to work hard to get the food out. They can take on many forms, and you can either buy or create them yourself. The best part about food puzzles is how they test your dog’s intelligence while giving them something to focus on for an hour or more. What’s more, they get rewarded for their efforts once they work out how to get the food out. This fun task has a moderate price tag, depending on whether you build or buy, and can make an excellent rainy-day activity when you’re stuck indoors.

Step
1
Think about the needs
If you want to skip the build stage and immediately buy a food puzzle, you need to think about your dog’s requirements. Are they a tough chewer with love for destruction? Or, are they nibblers? Vets and pet stores cater to various types of dogs depending on their habits. For example, for tough chewers, you can buy food balls made of hard and durable rubber. You stuff food into the holes then the dog has to chew, lick, and gnaw, to try and get it out. There are also puzzles with levers and switches that the dog has to use their brain to get the treats out.
Step
2
Create a challenge
If your budget doesn’t extend to purchasing new toys, then you may like to get your creative juices flowing with creating one. There are many options for creating food puzzles for your dog, including upside down muffin tins, ropes, and PVC piping. You can dry sweet potato and tie it into lines for your dog to pull apart and eat, or you can cut holes in the pipe so the dog can roll it around and get treats. The sky’s the limit for how you can create a fun food puzzle for your pup.
Step
3
Play for food
Whether you build or buy a food puzzle, you will find that your dog is going to have the time of their life. These food puzzles include a dog’s two favorite things: fun and food. As a result, you can expect them to work away at it for an hour or more. However, as your pup plays, make sure you supervise. You don’t want them to get up to any mischief which is prevalent with both English Bulldogs and Beagles.

More Fun Ideas...

Walk

If you only have 20 or 30 minutes of spare time, then it’s time to put on your sneakers and get going! A Beabull only needs a short walk daily to empty their energy meter, and you are sure to find it’s a convenient way to get exercise into your day for yourself as well. You only need a doggy waste bag and a leash or harness, and you can be back home to carry on with your daily tasks in no time.  

Paddling Pool

When you get a Beabull, the genetic mix can differ from one puppy to the next. Some are shorter and stumpier like the Bulldog, whereas others are a little slimmer and taller like the Beagle. If you find your Beabull is round, you need to care for them a little more in the summer months to stop them overheating with more insulation. You can do so with a paddling pool. Fill a children’s pool up with a small amount of water and let them get in it to cool down. Provide shelter and toys to make it a fun and exciting outdoor summer activity. 

Conclusion

A Beabull is a chilled out, fun, loyal, and relaxed dog that will tie into your home life beautifully. They suit professional couples, families, or anyone looking for a furry companion. A Beabull won’t ask for much from their owner, and they are more than happy to be by your side and take part in things that you’re doing. However, if you want to provide them with a pawesome experience, why not try out these activities?
