Overview
The Beagle was originally bred for hunting purposes and does remarkably well. Being a scent hound, this breed has the tendency to follow his nose and ignore anything and everything so obedience training at an early age is a must. The Beagle originated as a cross between the Harrier and many other hounds in England. This breed does best when hunting hare, pheasant, or quail.
Character
The Beagle is full of energy and does great in a family environment. They are very lively, active, and high energy making a wonderful childs companion given the proper socialization. This breed is alert and of even temperament and should never show signs of aggression or timidity. The Beagle can be very mischievous and very bold at times so proper precautions must be taken when training and/or socializing this fun loving breed.
Temperament
The Beagle is an all around happy dog that makes a wonderful companion for many different families. This breed adapts to many different environments and lifestyles, if not all. The Beagle is very eager to please, and is very intelligent however training must be consistent as this breed tends to lose interest and focus on something that catches his attention. This breed does extremely well with children, and can do exceptionally well with other pets if socialized properly.
Care
Beagles should require daily brushing to remove any dead or loose hair. A wipe down with a damp towel should suffice for the bathing aspect, however a rubber, wire, or hard bristled brush would work best for the brushing aspect. The ears of this breed should be cleaned on a regular basis, as this breed is prone to painful ears or ear infections. The nails of the Beagle should also be trimmed. This breed is an average shedder, which can be controlled with regular combing.
Coat
The Beagle has a hound type coat of medium length making grooming relatively easy for this breed. The hair should lie close to the body of the dog and should be hard, never soft or silky. The Beagle looks like a small English Foxhound. Beagles have a very sleek and shorthaired coat.
Training
The Beagle is very intelligent and very eager to please making him a wonderful student to work with. However, they do tend to lose interest fairly quickly as they are bound to pick up a scent and follow it. This is when obedience training definitely comes in handy. If properly trained, the Beagle should listen however, if not trained properly, ignoring is a big problem. Consistency and firm yet gentle handling is a must if this breed is to excel as they so desperately want to.
Activity
The Beagle is fairly active and loves long and vigorous walks, as they are the outdoorsy type. Considering they have a very strong hunting instinct, this breed should always be kept on a leash or in a fenced in yard as he is bound to run off if something catches his interest. Two long daily walks are recommended, as this breed seems to have great stamina and be somewhat tireless. The Beagle responds best in a home with a large yard.

Annual cost of owning a Beagle puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Beagles true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

Do Beagles bark often?

In short, yes. Beagles are talkers and enjoy the sound of their voice. They will talk when they are happy, when they are sad, and when they want to be heard. The first thing all Beagle owners need to do is to work on self control and a good stop cue to keep your Beagle from talking up a storm.

Are Beagle's easy to train?

Beagles are from the Hound Group, a group of dogs whom are loyal, sweet and stubborn all at the same time. Though it takes more time to train a Beagle, they are well worth the wait. Utilizing positive reinforcement methods and starting your training early, being consistent and taking your pup to obedience classes will give you the best start to get your Beagle pup trained quickly.

I do want to say that the Beagle is somewhat of an escape artist. My male Jubal went through a plate glass window in my garage and was out and having fun with no injuries. That took about 6 hours. About a month after that he chewed through a corrugated garage which was aluminum garage door and got through and had silver on his teeth for a month. The vet got a great kick out of that. After that we called Jubal Houdini. I loved him so. Good night Houdini wherever you are. I miss you so.

Do Beagles bark and howl all the time when being left alone?

Beagles are a part of the hound group and are very vocal. They are vocal when they are happy, sad, excited, lonely, etc. However, a properly trained and exercised Beagle can be calm while being left alone. This breed needs an average of an hour to an hour and a half of exercise a day. A good half an hour to forty-five-minute walk or run at the dog park (fenced); before going to work is a good amount of exercise to keep your Beagle calm while you are at work.

Are Beagles good swimmers? We live in Fairhope and are interested in getting a Beagle puppy.

Beagles are great family dogs and enjoy being with their families all the time. They are not known for being the best swimmers, but they can swim as long as they are introduced to the water slowly and positively. When selecting a puppy, bring a small kiddy pool with you, or large water dish and see which puppy takes to the water compared to the others.

We had two wonderful Beagle's that we adored. They loved to 'swim' in a lake where they could gradually get in, but not a pool per say. Best dogs we ever had.

I have had four Beagles since I was 18years old. I am now 68 years old and getting another one. To many great memories not to. All mine could swim easily. But don't force the issue. Go slowly. Half the time my beagles would stay in the 12" pool all day. Good night Jubal, Annie, Bo, and Clancy where ever you are. kevin
