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.
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.
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.
When you lack the time or the energy to take your dog off the property, then a game of fetch can be all it takes to appeal to their excitement and energy levels. 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.
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.
Sceagles are loving family pets with so many intricacies to their character. They will treat children with respect, walk alongside their owner who they are loyal to, and will adapt to most outdoor situations as well. 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.
