Beagles are an active breed of dogs. They are scent hounds and have a lot of energy reserved in their body. Because of this, they need physical and mental exercises to keep them at the peak of their overall health. Exercise will help keep them fit and keep their weight in check. It helps maintain their musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, and digestive systems in top condition. Exercise also helps keep them calm and well-behaved.
Beagles should be given a combination of moderate and intense exercises. Walking is a good moderate exercise for your dog. It will help stretch his muscles, keep his metabolism in order, and release his energy. Walking should be at a pace where your Beagle moves steadily but not running out of breath. You should walk your Beagle for 20 to 40minutes a day. Intense exercises are for his cardiovascular development. This form of exercise for your Beagle can be short but should be intense. Frisbee and ball throwing are good examples of fun cardio exercises for your doggo. You can do this 1 to 2 times a week.
Beagles love to move. Make your exercise time fun and safe. Take note also that Beagles only fully develop their skeletal system at 18 months so before this, you can limit your walks to within one mile and if he still has a lot of energy, you can do another walk later in the day. Do not over-exercise your pup so as not to put a strain on his developing body. Remember also to keep your Beagle hydrated with lots of water to avoid undesirable consequences.
