When you breed a Beagle with an English Toy Spaniel, you get an English Speagle. These energetic dogs are usually between 15 and 25 pounds, but that doesn't mean that they don't need a lot of exercise. Both parent breeds are active dogs, so English Speagles need both mental and physical stimulation every day, and sometimes twice a day. To keep your little dynamo active, you might have to get pretty creative. We know how difficult it can be to come up with new ideas to keep your dog entertained, so we have come up with a few great ideas for you!
If you are looking for a fairly easy game to play with your pooch, consider a nosework game. To start, you need treats or kibble and boxes to hide the food bits in. With this game, you can help teach your Speagle to use their nose to find things. We like that this game can be played inside or outside. This means that you can play this game no matter what the weather is like. With just 30 minutes of play a few times a week, you can train your pooch to better use their nose in no time all, while having fun!
Hide and seek is a fun game for everyone, including your English Speagle! Plus, it is so easy to play with your pooch, that you are sure to love it, too! To play hide and seek with your dog, you will need to either put your Speagle in a sit/stay or have someone hold onto them while you hide in an area that is easy to access for your dog. Once you are hidden, you can call to your pooch. At this point, if you have someone holding onto your dog, you should instruct them to release the dog. Then, you wait for the dog to find you!
Have you been looking for a way to entertain your pooch while getting help with housework? Look no further than the toy clean-up "game." Teaching your dog to clean up their own toys can save you time and energy cleaning up after other games you play in your home. For this game, you need toys, a basket or bin to put the toys in, and treats to use as a reward. With a few simple commands, you can teach your English Speagle to put all of the toys lying around the house in a special basket or bin that keeps them off of the floor.
