Introduction

Sceagles are an average-sized dog with complex characteristics stemming from both a Scottish Terrier and a Beagle. While they make a beautiful family pet due to their love and patience with children, they are also just as excited to go on a hike, a hunting adventure, or a trip to the dog park to see their friends. In essence, Sceagles are well-rounded, easy-to-train dogs that will fit into your home life perfectly. However, if you find that your lack of attention is causing your pup to become quite mischievous and destructive, it might be time to get creative. We’ve included a few of the many activities designed for your active and energetic Sceagle.

Even though Sceagles have a medium length coat that requires brushing at least four times per week, they still love the water. Therefore, it’s best not to worry about how you only just groomed them and let them have the time of their life going swimming. After all, when the sun is shining, they’ll be more than ready to cool off and have fun in the process. Set aside an hour on a hot day, grab a towel, their leash, and a toy, and take your pampered pooch for a swim. You’re sure to find they’ll enjoy both the car ride there and the entire experience. 

Step
1
Find a spot
Knowing where to take your dog swimming can be challenging. Sometimes beaches are not close enough to be of convenience, while rivers may not be either. Therefore, it might be time to think outside the square. A quick search on the internet can bring up many swimming pools, ponds, and water areas that cater to dogs. You may find they are in proximity to your home, offering up the opportunity to make it a regular activity. However, even water parks for humans can prove popular. When businesses are due to replace their water, they extend an open invitation to dogs and dog owners to have a day of fun in the water before they refresh the pools.

Go swimming
Now that you know what watering spots are open and available to your pup, there’s no better time than now to grab a towel and a toy and hit the road. Sceagles love going anywhere you go – and the car is no exception. Therefore, they are sure to enjoy the kaleidoscope of smells out the car window as much as they do the experience at the swimming spot.

Activity description

When you first get your Sceagle as a puppy, one of the first things you will need to do is socialize them. While there’s no denying they have a gentle, loving nature, they need early involvement with other people and dogs to let that shine through by adulthood. Therefore, there’s every reason to pack up your pup on a beautiful sunny day and spend an hour with them at a dog park. Not only is it free, but it enables your dog to blow off steam, so they behave when they get home. 

Step
1
Choose a park
Dog parks appear in most towns, mainly as the United States is such a dog-friendly country. As a result, there’s every reason to believe you’ll find one in proximity to your home. However, that’s not to say that one is going to be the best one for your dog. Sceagles are small to medium in size, which means they are not equipped to handle the rough and tumble of larger dogs – at least those that aren’t aware of their weight. Therefore, the best dog park for you is going to be one that separates the dogs by size.
Step
2
Start slow
If it’s your first trip to the dog park with your furry friend, it’s natural to feel a little nervous. After all, you can’t tell for sure how your dog is going to react. Sceagles can be good guard dogs, which make them wary of every new situation. Therefore, it’s in your best interests to take them into the small dog enclosure on their leash, letting them smell the fresh scents with you in control. Then, when they’ve met new dogs and familiarized themselves with the environment, you can let them off.
Step
3
Play
Before long, your Sceagle will realize that a dog park is an exciting place with so many things to see, do, and experience. You can play with them, watch them as they play with other dogs, or even throw a toy into the mix and let them have the time of their life. The dog park is a fun, free, and easy way in which to let your Sceagle burn off all that pent-up energy.

Activity description

Sceagles love to hunt – it’s in their nature. Rather than deny what nature gave them, you can nurture this trait by offering day trips away to pursue small creates such as rabbits and hares. Even if it’s only a day trip, a Sceagle will love the opportunity to track, trap, and be involved in an outdoor adventure with their best friend – you. While you can hunt in any weather, it does take preplanning, and the best time of year is, of course, when the weather is going to be a little warmer. You need to make sure you have plenty of food and water for you both, a GPS tracker for your dog, a harness, and a blanket or coat. 

Step
1
Choose a spot
Because you will only be going on a day hunt with man’s best friend, it makes sense to stay as close to home as possible. Therefore, you will need to some research to ascertain which will be the most lucrative, and safest, hunting location for you both. What’s more, it needs to be suitable for your dog, as well as offering plenty of bunnies as chasing opportunities. When you’ve circled a location, it’s also a good idea to let your loved ones know where it is and how long it takes to get to and from it your from your home base.
Step
2
Pack gear
Because Sceagles are typically quite low maintenance, it’s easy to forget to cater to their needs when you’re preparing for a hunting trip. However, it’s crucial to pack enough food and water for you both, and a GPS collar so you won’t lose track of them. Double-check this gear twice before leaving the house to make sure you’ve got everything.
Step
3
Go hunting
Sceagles are talented when it comes to tracking, so you may find you have far better odds of success with them by your side than without them. At every opportunity, take your Sceagle hunting. As time progresses, they will get better and better to the point where you won’t even need to direct them to do as you want them to do.

All you need is their favorite toy, and you can throw it either inside or outside. Fetch makes a great indoors game for wet weather. Clear a section of your home of obstacles and spend 20 minutes playing with your pup. 

Hiking

Sceagles love being in the great outdoors, so alongside hunting, it’s only natural to include nature hikes and long walks. Make sure you carry plenty of water, food, and a first aid kit, and tell your loved ones when you’ll be home. However, a short day hike is going to be more than enough to wear your pampered pooch out.

When you adopt a Sceagle and integrate them into your home life, they will furever be grateful for both a warm place to sleep and the love you offer them on a daily basis.
