My beagles have always been kept in a kennel . I like running a small pack because they're easier to get in and out of a boat , so I only have 4 dogs . Will it make a difference in how they run if they're kept in my back yard just running loose ? They've been in my back yard for a couple weeks now and from what I can tell they just lay around like they did in the kennel . I haven't ran them in a few weeks due to work and was wondering if this will have an affect on how they run if I leave them back there instead of keeping them in the kennel .
