Introduction

When you adopt or buy a Beagi, you will quickly learn that it can take a lot of “out of the box” thinking to come up with an extensive activity plan. Beagis, which have parentage of Corgi and Beagle, love to have fun, hang out with their owners, play, and chase. They also like to take advantage of their stubborn nature and be independent pups who play by their own rules. While this attitude can be cute at first, it can wear your patience thin and takes the right activities and training to make it short-lived. If you want to have plenty of options up your sleeve for keeping your Beagi entertained, we have included a few options below.

One of the best free and hour-long activities on a sunny day with your Beagi is a trip to the dog park. Not only does it offer the opportunity for you both to get outside and enjoy the sunshine, but it helps your pup to learn from an early age that other dogs are friends, not threats. What’s more, there are plenty of options when it comes to the best dog park for your needs. You can opt for the more popular free variety, or throw a few dollars toward a trip to a dog fun park instead. For each of them, all you need is a leash, doggy waste bag, and a toy for them. They can then enjoy an hour of fun in the sun with you by their side! 

Step
1
Choose a park
Beagis can be stubborn little dogs, set in their ways and with many quirks. You can, for the most part, trace this back to the Beagle side of their parentage. Because they are stubborn, some owners struggle with recall – getting their Beagi to come back to them when called. Therefore, you may find that an entirely fenced dog park with separate areas for different dog sizes can be the best option for you. To locate such a park, have a look online or talk to friends and family.
Step
2
Start slow
Beagis can be quite mistrusting of people when they first meet them, and the same goes for other dogs. While you can socialize them from an early age, they may still take a while to warm up to others. As a result, you may find you need to introduce them to other dogs from the outside of the enclosure so they can see they aren’t a threat. Read their body language and pay attention to what they’re doing. Once you are happy with their behavior, you can walk them into the dog enclosure for an hour of fun!
Step
3
Play with freedom
Once your Beagi heads into the dog park enclosure, you will find they love the freedom to run, play with other dogs and, mostly, take in the smells. Both Corgis and Beagles love using their noses, which equates to a Beagi who follows along the same lines. After an hour of romping, you can then return home knowing you’re helping to maintain your pup’s health to the best standard.

Activity description

One of the most effective and free activities for dogs to remain fit and healthy is with a walk. You don’t need any unique toys or tools, nor do you need a lot of time to spare or a particular facility. All you need is an hour, a leash, a waste bag, and, of course, your furry friend. A walk is an excellent sunny day activity because it enables you both to get outdoors, bond, and check out what your neighborhood has to offer. While you usually would drive everywhere and miss out on new additions to the area, you can slow down the pace, get that much-needed physical activity, and let your dog take in the kaleidoscope of sights and sounds on offer. 

Step
1
Choose routes
The best thing about taking your Beagi for a walk is the endless options available. You can go anywhere you want to – never needing to traverse the same path twice. Even better, you can go for a long walk, a short one, or somewhere in between. The best way to choose a walking route is to think about your dog’s personality. Do they tend to chase wildlife? Do they have sensitive paws? If your dog tries to track small animals – a trait they inherited from their parents, then staying in residential areas can be a good idea. If they have sensitive paws, however, natural grassy spots could also be an excellent option.

Walk
The second and final step is to walk! Once you have an hour to spare, you can gather up your pampered pooch and head off for an hour-long adventure. Stretch your legs, take in the sights and sounds, and let your dog burn off that pent-up energy in a positive way. Then, you can return home and relax without guilt – knowing you’ve burnt off your share of calories for the day as well!

Activity description

All-weather obedience training is a significant activity for your Beagi because it’s one that you may come to find is very challenging. The earlier you can begin obedience training, the earlier your puppy turns into a mature and well-behaved dog. Both Corgis and Beagles are particularly stubborn breeds. They tend to like doing what they want, and can even be difficult to toilet train from a young age. If you aren’t able to get your Beagi to listen to you, or you’re struggling with those necessary commands, hour-long obedience training or puppy school sessions could be the answer. 

Step
1
Select school
There are two potential options for you and your puppy that can help to make them more obedient and well-behaved. Puppy school is an excellent option for dogs aged between eight weeks and six months, while general obedience training can be something beneficial for dogs that are older. It’s up to you to choose which is the best facility for your dog’s requirements.
Step
2
Find flaws
Before attending, think about what you would like to get out of the sessions. If you don’t have a clear idea in your head, then you may struggle to get out of it what you want. Does your Beagi not listen to you? Do they not come back when you call? Are you not even able to get them through toilet training? Write a list, if you must, then enroll your bossy Beagi into a class sooner rather than later.
Step
3
Train
During an eight-week training course with your furry friend, you will learn many things to help train your puppy. You can learn the basics such as sit, stay, and come, as well as how to use the toilet if you are having trouble with that as well. You can then take this valuable education and practice at home – helping to reaffirm what you learned in the training facility. Before long, your previously stubborn pup will be ready to listen to all of your commands.

More Fun Ideas...

Swimming

Beagles take to water naturally, which is why you can assume that Beagis will as well. On a hot day when the sun is too intense for most other activities, why not treat your doggo to a dip? You can set up a pool in the backyard or head to a local and public watering hole. Arm yourself with a toy and a towel and your dog will have the time of their life. 

Chew Toys

The weather isn’t always going to be good enough for a walk or a trip to the dog park, but it will be for chew toys. Whether you want to protect your footwear from immediate destruction, or you want to keep your Beagi’s mind active, you can do so with chew toys. You can purchase them from most pet stores and vet clinics for a reasonable price.  

Conclusion

It doesn’t take long to find out that a Beagi’s aim in life is to test you. However, if you arm yourself with the right activities, you can provide enough stimulation to stop them from thinking they’re boss! Take control, consider obedience training, and treat them to fun activities such as trips to the dog park, swimming, toys, and walks.
