Enrichment, or mental stimulation, is incredibly important for pups of all kinds. This is especially so for pups who come from working heritages – these pups were bred to work, and thus have all that intelligence and energy that needs to be put to use.
Otherwise, you will be left with a bored pup, and bored pups often are destructive and will develop behavioral problems!
One way to get the most out of your pup is to take them for training. Not just any kind of training, mind you – competitive training, specifically. Pups like these pair of Beagles are not only intelligent, but thanks to their people-pleasing nature are also highly trainable.
You can see the results in this video, where their Mom puts the pups through their paces at this massive event dedicated to Beagle pups. Just watch them zoom through that obstacle course with ease, or chase that lure with glee!
