The Beagle's average life span is 12 - 15 years.
My Levi lived to 17 1/2.
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.
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.
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.
