How much exercise does a beagle need? How much does yours get?
We've been giving Rosey three to four 20-minute walks a day, plus a couple mile runs on the treadmill daily and usually an hour at the dogpark. And I was told today that even THAT isn't enough exercise for a beagle and that no matter how much you exercise them they will always have extra energy and won't be tired. They said that beagles need to be ran for 3 to 4 hours, etc, because that is what they were made to do (being a hound dog and bred to hunt).
Kind of makes me feel hopeless. We exercise her so much already and yeah, she does still have a lot of energy leftover... she is always go, go, go, but surely not everyone exercises their beagle THAT much?
Also, at what age did your beagle slow down (not so full of energy and hyper and seemed to finally rest more)?
