Introduction

Beaglolos are sweet, charming, and loving little lap dogs with a parentage of Beagle and Bolognese. While it can be a challenge to know what personality your new Beaglolo is going to have with two very unique parents, what you can expect is a dog with a lot of love to give. This sweet breed is one that will follow you around, take pleasure in doing what you do, and occasionally may like you to interact with them in play. They don’t have high energy levels, but if you want to make sure they remain healthy and stimulated, test out these activities below.

If you’ve ever seen the heartbreak in your dog’s eyes as you leave the house without them, you will know that sometimes you need to be willing to take your Beaglolo with you on a car ride. Even if you’re only heading to the store for five minutes, that short journey is one that your Beaglolo will find to be memorable. The best part is, a car ride is free, you can do it in any weather, and you only need a harness. If you do plan on taking your Beaglolo for a trip, however, try to keep the journey length to around half an hour. 

Step
1
Travel safe
There’s a reason law enforcement make you wear a seatbelt. Without it, you can find yourself thrown through the windshield in an accident. The same goes for your dog. Their small frame is no match for impact, which makes it crucial for you to buckle them up whenever they go with you for a ride in the car. Put their walking harness on them then loop it through the seatbelt. You can then rest assured they are secure in place for the entire outing.
Step
2
Plan a stop
Think you’re going to be in the car for a couple of hours? Then plan a stop. While your dog will enjoy seeing all the traffic whizzing by, they also need a chance to stretch their legs and move around. Stop at a park for a runaround, and maybe even include five or 10 minutes for a game of fetch or play with other dogs.

Activity description

Beaglolos are quite social dogs, and while they are content with hanging out with you and your children, they also like to meet new dogs and have fun with other furry critters. If you can, try to include at least one trip to the dog park into your schedule per week. It might not seem like a big deal to you, but to your Beaglolo, the activity means the world. It won’t cost you a dime, you can hang out in the sunshine, and it’s easy as well. Set aside an hour, grab a toy, leash, and waste bag, and head to your local dog park for some fun in the sun! 

Step
1
Choose a park
One of the best dog parks for your needs is, of course, going to be the one that’s nearest to your home. However, there may be a few other points you might like to consider. Remember, your Beaglolo is small, which makes them unable to play safely with larger dogs that may accidentally hurt them. You will need to find a park that has an enclosure for small dogs to play nicely together.
Step
2
Think of games
If you want your pup to do more than sniff the grass and follow trails while they are at the dog park, then prepare games in advance. Take a frisbee, fetch toy, or a toy rope and engage them while you’re at the park. You may even be able to get other dogs in on the fun!
Step
3
Play
Once you are at the park, you can bring your Beaglolo into the small dog enclosure and introduce them to their surroundings. You may like to keep their leash on until you are happy with their body language. You can then observe as they play with their newfound friends for an hour.

Activity description

While you may not think that nail clipping is a fun activity your Beaglolo is going to jump for joy to be a part of, it’s the time you spend with them that really counts. And, the sooner you begin clipping their nails, the more used to the process they will become. What’s more, if you choose to clip your Beaglolo’s nails at home, you can save yourself money by not having to get your local vet to do the job. All you need for this cheap, rainy-day activity is 20 minutes to spare, clippers, and a treat for being such a good dog. It may take a little getting used to, but it’s a beneficial activity that will prove to be worth its weight in gold. 

Step
1
Get familiar
If you are not an expert nail clipper, then you and your dog both need to get familiar with the process. Learn what you can expect by looking at your Beaglolo’s feet. There will be the nail portion, followed by a small pink part underneath known as the quick. This part provides the blood supply for the nail and is quite sensitive. If you cut it, it will bleed a lot.
Step
2
Clip and snip
Once you know what you need to do, begin by snipping off small bits of the nail from each toenail. If the claw starts to feel spongy, stop immediately – that’s the quick, the bit you cannot cut. If your dog is beginning to get distressed, offer them a treat and take a break. You don’t have to cut all the nails at once!
Step
3
Cutting the quick
If your Beaglolo has dark colored toenails, you are at an increased risk of cutting your dog’s quick. This part of their foot is sensitive and can also bleed a lot. If you slice it, it’s also not something your dog will forget in a hurry – potentially marring your nail clipping experience going forward! Do all you can to prevent it, but know that there are ways to stop the bleeding if you happen to nick it. Use a nail cauterizer, a cotton swab, or styptic powder to stop the bleeding. Use a calming voice and offer treats as a distraction where possible.

Swimming

If you find yourself battling the heat, then spare a thought for your poor furry friend. With long fur, they may also struggle more than most. If that’s the case, you may find a dip in a paddling pool can help to cool them down. Include a few of their favorite toys, natural treats, and yourself if you also want to freshen up! 

Walk

A Beaglolo is not a high-energy dog, so you will be pleased to know that half-hour walks every day is going to more than satisfy their requirements. They will be happy with both the time they get to spend with you and the chance to see what lies on the other side of the fence. This sunny-day activity will also not cost a dime! 

Conclusion

If you don’t have time to run miles and miles with your dog, hoping it will wear them out, then a Beaglolo may be the dog for you. Small, petite, idle, and not fussy in the slightest, they can suit many busy professionals to a tee. What’s more, Beaglolos are not yappy dogs, meaning they are less likely to annoy your neighbors too! To stop your pup going barking mad, however, you may like to try a few of these activities above to keep them entertained.
