5:30 PM – Dinner time. It is important to choose mealtimes for your dog and to keep those times. Even if your dinner is a bit behind, do be sure to feed your Beagle
the same times each day.
6:00 PM – Evening walk. You should first bring your puppy to the designated area to urinate and/or eliminate and then go for the walk. This evening walk is important for 2 reasons. Your puppy needs exercise to maintain health
and this evening walk will tire him or her out and help induce a good night’s sleep.
7:00 PM – Downtime with the family. Your Beagle may wish to sit with the family or to go on his own to play with his toys. Either is acceptable behavior. Although you may wish for him to sit with you, be happy if he goes to play independently; this will help when it comes time to be home alone.
8:00 PM – Last time of going outside. Before your Beagle gets ready for sleep, be sure to allow him to go outside, whether you have a puppy or an adult.
8:30 PM – Sleep time. Now that the day has been filled with activities, it is time to sleep. There are many elements needed to help your Beagle sleep good through the night. The puppy or dog must have his own special area. This should be a quality canine dog bed that properly supports the body to prevent back issues and to offer muscles appropriate support for a growing body. If your Beagle is home alone during the day, it's best for this to be placed in his gated off area; this promotes better behavior at other times since the area will not just be seen as a place to go when owners leave.
If you decide to have your Beagle sleep in your bed, be very careful if he or she is young. Your pup should be placed in the top corner of a bed that is cornered against 2 walls. Some Beagle may resist sleeping. There are many things that you can do to induce him or her to remain in the sleeping area.
