The Beagle’s small size makes it a good dog for an indoor lifestyle.

Starting off our list of best indoor dogs is the Beagle. The Beagle’s small size makes it a good dog for an indoor lifestyle because they don’t need much space to feel comfortable. Additionally, these pooches are known to bond closely with their family members, and living indoors ensures they are always close to their owners. That’s a huge plus in any Beagle’s book! They want you close and will appreciate the fact that you have no where to hide from their special brand of puppy love.

While Beagles are not overly energetic, they are considered to be an intelligent and a stubborn breed, which means they can become destructive when bored. To prevent this, make sure your pet has plenty of interactive toys to keep them occupied while you’re away! Beagles need something to focus their energy on, so it’s a good idea to have plenty of toys available for them or they will turn some of your most prized possessions into their toys instead.

These cute doggos were originally bred for hunting, but nowadays, most members of this breed use their talented hunter noses to sniff out a stale Cheeto that fell behind the sofa rather than a wild rabbit. However, the fact that Beagles are a hunting breed means that they’re not your typical couch potato. They do have moderate exercise needs, but nothing a good daily walk won’t take care of. And if you tire them out with a good game of fetch, you can be sure your four-legged friend will spend the rest of the day napping on the couch. Thankfully it won’t take much to tucker out your Beagle.
