Games To Play With Your Beagle IndoorsOnce the summer is over we might feel not so inclined to spend long periods of time outdoors plying with our beagles. However, your beagle needs physical and mental stimulation all year round. Therefore, we have put together some games to play with your beagle indoors.

Games To Play With Your Beagle Indoors

Paw-Rescue.org has published an excellent article on indoor games. Here are some of the ideas:

* Find the food:
Instead of placing meals in a food bowl, divide it up into small portions and hide handfuls of kibble around the room. Initially placing them in easy to find spots, like under a chair. As the dog’s search skills improve, add challenge by hiding the food out of sight or expanding the treasure hunt to more than one room.

* Hide and seek:
Begin by having a family member hold on to the dog, or leave him in a sit-stay while you go and hide in another room. Then call his name. Remain quiet as he approaches. When he’s off the track, call again. The reward when he finds you should be praise and some animated, excited play. As the dog’s finding skills improve, hide in other places to challenge his abilities.

* Find the toy:
Choose a favorite toy, then send your dog out of the room so you can hide it. Initially, remove other toys from the area, and “hide” the chosen toy in plain sight. Next, let the dog back into the room, and tell him to “Find your (name of toy)!” Original Article Here.

 

TIP – Remember that dogs are hard-wired to work for their food. You can incorporate some games before feeding your beagle.

These and other games to play with your beagle indoors should not replace walks and other forms of exercise but they should be an addition to your beagle’s care routine.
