About The Breed
The breed was bred to hunt in groups and is therefore sociable and usually easygoing. There exist two Beagle kinds: those that stand just under 13 inches on the shoulders and range between 13-15 inches. Both breeds are strong and solid. They are also ‘big for their size the dog people are known to say. They are available in such lovely hues as red, lemon, and white, as well as tricolor. The charm of the Beagle lies in the adorable face of his owner with his big eyes, either brown or hazel, highlighted with long, houndy ears that rest low on a head that is broad. A breed that’s described as merry by its admirers, Beagles are loving and affectionate, joyful, and friendly all traits which make them great pet dogs for families. So it is no surprise that for many years the Beagle is the most sought-after hound dog in the eyes of American pets owners. These are smart, curious, and active hounds that need plenty of time to play.

The Beagle has an extremely smooth and thick double coat that becomes denser in the winter months, which is why spring is the ideal time to shed. Beagles shed moderately all year round. Regular brushing using a medium-bristle or a grooming mitt made of rubber or tool or a hound glove helps remove loose hair and encourage the growth of new hair. Beagles shouldn’t be bathed as often except when they become involved in something that is particularly messy. Like other breeds, Beagle’s nails need to be cut frequently since nails that are too long could cause pain for the dog and also cause problems in running and walking.
Like all dogs being socialized early and early classes for training are essential. Treats can be a big help when it comes to training. Beagles don’t respond well to harsh methods however, patience, positive reinforcement, and even a bit of creativity can triumph at the final.
