|Exercise Needs – As we always say in every dog breed facts post, each breed has different requirements. Not only that but each dog is unique even if they are the same breed! Regardless of what you read in this post, other website, book, etc. your dog likely will not match up perfectly with the “typical” exercise habits of the Beagle profile. Most experts say the Beagle needs a minimum of 1 day of exercise per week. The activity should be 20-40 minutes. Ideally your Beagle should be active twice per week. Many puppy Beagles have loads of energy, potentially requiring more exercise. I have heard from many Beagle owners that their Beagle required a 1 hour walk every day until 18-24 months old. Again, remember, your experience may vary.
|Activities – Beagles like most dogs enjoy walks, runs, fetch and any other outdoor activities. Many hunters own Beagles for their amazing tracking abilities and sense of smell. This means they enjoy any scent based activities such as walking trails in the woods, hunting, or hiking.
