Activity description
One of the best words to describe a Mini Fox Beagle is loyal. This breed absolutely loves to be near their owners and far prefers to be right by your side than alone. In fact, when left to their own devices, Mini Fox Beagles can be a little destructive. Why not take your dog out with you on field trips rather than leaving them by themselves? There are plenty of places you and your dog can visit together that will be fun and productive. Set up a nice cozy place in your car for your dog and get ready to go on an inexpensive adventure with your best buddy.
Step
1
Pet store
Need to go to your local pet store to pick up some dog food, new dog toys or maybe even a nice new dog bed? Bring your dog with you! Many pet stores allow dogs inside which makes this the perfect field trip spot to visit with your dog. Now your Mini Fox Beagle can even pick out their own toy!
Step
2
Restaurant
Look for a local restaurant where dogs are allowed. Many places with outdoor seating will allow pups to come and dine with their owners, something your Mini Fox Beagle will love. There are also restaurants that cater directly to dogs that you can check out as well - a plate of spaghetti and "meatbones" sounds perfect to your Mini Fox Beagle!
Step

Everyday drive
When you need to run errands or are just heading out to pick up a friend, bring your dog! Your Mini Fox Beagle will love to go in the car with you on a mini adventure any time of day. If you plan on leaving your pup in the car while you run into stores, always crack the window slightly so they have fresh air and never leave them in the car when the temperatures outside are very hot or very cold. While car rides are fun, you don't want them to be dangerous for your pup!

Activity description
Mini Fox Beagles come from a long line of hunting dogs. Both sides of this pup's heritage were tracking dogs, used to hunt by having the pup follow an animal's scent trail. This amazing sense of smell is not lost on your Mini Fox Beagle even if they have never actually hunted a day in their lives! It may surprise you how quickly and accurately your dog will be able to track scents - that Mini Fox Beagle nose is spectacular! Scent games are fairly cheap, costing just the price of treats and can be played inside or outside, so weather is never a factor!
Step
1
Treat search
Have your Mini Fox Beagle sit and stay in one room and show them a handful of their favorite treats. While your dog stays and waits patiently, hide the treats in another room. Then, return to your Mini Fox Beagle and tell them to go find the treats! Your dog's nose will go right to the ground as they begin to track, searching for their prize
Step
2
Towel pet
Have a friend who owns a pet rub a clean towel on their pet and then give the towel to you to take home. Hide the towel in your house and see how long it takes before your Mini Fox Beagle picks up the scent and starts looking for the new "animal" in the house. You will be surprised how quickly your dog finds that towel!
Step
3
Toy dig
Grab your dog's favorite toy and bury it in your backyard or inside, under a pile of clothes or in between the couch cushions. Then, ask your Mini Fox Beagle where the toy is. Your pup will start sniffing, looking for their precious toy and likely won't stop until they find it!

Remote Controlled Car or Toy
Activity description
As you well know, Mini Fox Beagles are clearly hunters. They love to run and chase any small animal or object that moves. However, you probably don't want your Mini Fox Beagle to be outside chasing every bird, every squirrel and every other small dog. To curb this behavior, give your Mini Fox Beagle something else to track - a remote controlled toy! Your dog will love playing with a toy that moves and that they are allowed to chase without getting in trouble. This activity does involve investing in a high quality remote controlled toy and is best played outside where you and your dog have a lot of space to run.
Step
1
Toy search
Look for a reliable remote controlled toy for your dog. You want a toy that will last as your pup will likely want to play with it all the time making a slightly higher price worth the investment. While you can choose a remote controlled toy designed for dogs, you can also find a kid's toy that will suffice and perhaps even be better!
Step
2
Introduce
Head out to a nice big open space where your Mini Fox Beagle will really be able to run. Place the toy on the ground and let your dog sniff it and become intrigued. Then, make the toy move a little bit by using the remote. Your Mini Fox Beagle will likely perk up their ears and look excited. Move the toy again and your pup will look like they are ready to pounce!
Step
3
Directional chase
Now that your Mini Fox Beagle wants to grab that new toy, make it go, go, go! Your Mini Fox Beagle will burst off, chasing the toy with excitement. Use the remote to make the toy go in all different directions just as a real live animal would. Your Mini Fox Beagle will likely catch they toy soon, it is in their nature after all. Once they do, just start playing again! This game is endless.

Dog Park

Since Mini Fox Beagles have such a high prey drive, it is best to socialize them at a young age. Bring your pup to the dog park often so they are able to be around dogs of all sizes and temperaments without issue.

Treat Puzzle

Mini Fox Beagles love scent games and they are also quite smart. A dog treat puzzle is perfect for this breed. Hide the dog treats inside the puzzle and watch while your Mini Fox Beagle figures out the puzzle and gets to their prize.

Conclusion

It may seem, when looking strictly at their background, that Mini Fox Beagles would be hyper, high energy dogs. While this is true to an extent, they do need to get a good deal of exercise daily and they are also fantastically cuddly, lovable dogs. When you give your Mini Fox Beagle plenty to do each day, they will be happier and more well-rounded pups. So head outside and bury your dog's favorite toy for them to find, go to the pet store with your dog and pick up a remote controlled toy while you are there. You and your dog are about to have a lot of fun with these Mini Fox Beagle activities.
