Well-known for being extremely friendly and affectionate, the beagle is an excellent family pet. They’re gentle, tolerant, and wonderful with children.
Beagles are relatively calm and easy to train, although they tend to bark and howl. These dogs are pack animals that require either human or canine companionship. If they’re left alone too long, they sometimes have behavior issues.
This is an active breed that needs a significant amount of daily exercise. Plan to take this dog for a long walk or give it plenty of time to run around in a safe, fenced-in area every day.
Beagles have minimal grooming requirements. They’ll need little more than the occasional bath and brushing.
