Nature

The beagle is a friendly, enthusiastic dog. Which in many books on beagles as “cheerful” described dogs are generally friendly and not aggressive or shy. They love human companionship and although strangers sometimes initially reluctant or barking meet, they won quickly. This makes beagles hand not good watchdogs, but they can scare her attackers because of their typical beagle barking.

Beagles can be very good with children and that’s probably the main reason that they are more and more households have changed in recent decades. Beagles attach much to their owners and can get separation anxiety when they are to be left alone for long.

Beagles are intelligent dogs, but very deliberate and stubborn. This makes parenting often difficult, but the stubborn character gives educators generally have fun. Beagles listen generally good, but there is little need to be done to divert their attention.

Do not underestimate this little dog is not. He needs a lot more exercise than most people think.

The Beagle has to lose its energy. It is wise to make regular long walks with him.

Please note that you stand him well appeal if you want to let him go. He is sure he is known as a scent he tracks down following his nose and run away on their own will.

It is wise that you your garden well fenced so that he can not take his legs. I myself have a beagle and he literally jumped through the fence if he wanted to go somewhere behind. Even though he is full of scratches, the Beagle has a very high pain threshold and will separately go through thorns if necessary.

Did you know that the Beagle is most widely used for illegal animal testing its high pain threshold.
