Introduction

The Reagle is a hybrid breed created by crossing the Rottweiler with the Beagle. Loyal and affectionate, these gorgeous dogs love being around their people and often make grrr-eat playmates for kids. 

When you welcome a Reagle into your family, you'll be rewarded with a loving and devoted companion. However, owning a dog is also a big responsibility, and you'll need to make sure that your Reagle gets all the exercise, mental stimulation and interaction they need to enjoy a happy and fulfilling life. This is why you need to make an effort to treat your pet to new games and adventures whenever possible.

Here are a few paw-some ideas to get you started.

If you're looking for a lazy activity you and your pooch can enjoy together, you might want to consider sitting down with your furry friend and reading them a book. 

While this might sound a little bit silly at first, there are actually plenty of reasons why you should give it a try. The most obvious one is that it's the paw-fect excuse to cuddle up on the lounge with your furry friend, and who doesn't love that?! But it's also a much better way to engage with your pet than simply sitting in front of the TV, and many dogs even find the whole experience quite relaxing.

Step
1
Get set up
The first thing you'll need to do is choose what you're going to read to your dog. This could be that novel you've been meaning to finish for ages, a kids' book or even just the latest newspaper -- it doesn't really matter. What matters is that you can read it in a way that keeps your pet interested and engaged. With the reading material sorted, find a comfy spot on the lounge and snuggle up next to your pooch.
Step
2
Start reading
There's something oh-so-adorable about watching your dog listen intently while you read them something completely random. Make sure you give your dog plenty of pats and cuddle time while you read, and they'll hopefully settle in for a long time. Being read to can also have a calming and relaxing effect on some dogs, so you might like to make a bedtime story part of your pet's regular nighttime routine.

Activity description

Every dog owner knows there are plenty of benefits of a daily walk -- fresh air, exercise, mental stimulation and the opportunity to socialize are the main highlights. But walking isn't exactly the most exciting of outings, especially if you and your pooch always tackle the same route and always just stroll along at the same pace. 

If you feel that your dog could benefit from a little more variety, why not introduce a few new games and activities during your walk? This will keep your dog guessing, offer some much-needed mental challenges for your pooch, and turn the humble walk into an eagerly anticipated adventure. Here are three paw-some activity ideas you can try on your next walk.

Step
1
Trick training
The first thing you can do is stop your walk every five minutes or so to give your dog a short and sweet training session. For example, you might ask your dog to sit for 30 seconds, to shake paws, lie down or do whatever other skill you're trying to teach them. Reward them for doing what you ask and then continue on your walk as normal.
Step
2
Follow the leader
If you want to teach your dog how to be a little more polite when out for a walk, try this little game. The aim is to teach your pet that you are the one in control of the walk, and all you have to do to try it out is make a point of always heading in a different direction to the one your dog is trying to drag you in. Even making slight changes in direction will ensure that your dog has to keep their attention focused on you rather than on any nearby distractions.
Step
3
Red light, green light
This fun game should keep your pet on their toes all throughout the walk. At random intervals, give your dog the command to stop -- this could be "stop", "stay", "red light" or whatever else works for you. When your dog stops and sits, give them praise and a treat. When you're ready to get moving again, say "go" or "green light" and continue on your way.

If your Reagle is an energetic canine, chances are you'll always be looking for ways to give them a challenging physical workout. And if you're lucky enough to live near a dog-friendly state forest, national park or some other natural area, there's no better way to raise your dog's heart rate than to take them on a wilderness hike. 

Hiking takes you across varied terrain and through beautiful scenery, so it can help your dog exercise different muscle groups and stimulate their brain. With so many interesting new sights and smells to explore, your Reagle should love every second of your natural adventure.

Step
1
Pick a trail
Do some research to find a dog-friendly park or forest near you. When you've found a suitable destination, check out a guide to the trails in the area to find one that sounds perfect for you and your pooch. Remember to consider the length of the walk and how difficult it is before deciding whether it's something you should take on.
Step
2
Plan your trek
You should never just set off into the wilderness without planning ahead. Will you have cell phone coverage on the trail? Do you need to take a map with you? Do you need to tell everyone where you're going and when to expect you back? Are there any hazards (such as dangerous wildlife or poison ivy) to keep an eye out for? As well as answering all these questions, you'll also need to pack plenty of water and trail snacks for yourself and your pet.
Step
3
Hit the trail
Now it's time to head out and enjoy a paw-some trek with your four-legged friend. Let your dog set the pace and explore their new surroundings, and make sure you stick to any leash rules that apply in the area. Give your Reagle a rest if they look like they're slowing down, and make sure you take the time to just enjoy being in the great outdoors with your beloved pet.

Road Trip

If you need to escape for a while, load your dog into the car and head out onto the open road. You can head for a specific destination or just follow your nose and see where you end up -- it's entirely up to you.

Doga

Looking for a fun way to relax with your dog, get some exercise and relieve stress? Take a doggy yoga class with your furry friend.

Conclusion

If you expect your Reagle to be happy simply being left alone in a backyard all day long, you're in for a rude shock. But if you're willing to devote plenty of time and effort to make sure all your pet's exercise and companionship needs are met, your fur-kid will be a loyal friend for life.
