Pocket beagles typically live 10–13 years. If their lifestyle is healthy, enriched, and active, you can help extend your pocket beagle’s lifespan.
To help your pocket beagle enjoy a longer life, you must focus on improving these aspects of its lifestyle:
- Health – Make sure your pocket beagle gets an hour of light exercise a day, and don’t let it overeat. Take it to the vet regularly for checkups to catch health issues early.
- Enrichment – Play with your pocket beagle in 15-minute sessions at least twice a day. Go on walks together, and allow your pet to sniff and investigate the environment.
- Activity – Give your pocket beagle something to do or something to think about. Obedience training is a great way to engage a pocket beagle. A walk in nature, a visit to the dog park, or even an exploration of the house is an easy way to keep your pocket beagle’s mind occupied.
