The Beagle

The Beagle

The Beagle loves company and is excellent around children and other dogs. When it comes to other house pets, if the Beagle is raised with them, the breed will adjust well to other non-dog house pets. They playful and gentle disposition makes them a natural choice as a house pet. Beagles are naturally polite dogs and will quickly warm up to strangers once they eliminate them as threats. They make good watchdogs and will bark and growl at the slightest hint of an intruder or danger.

Beagle dogs love being in the company of their family. If you leave them alone for a long time, they might resort to bark and howl to express their loneliness. Don’t leave them unsupervised outdoors, should they jump the fence and go explore the town. The Beagles hunting instinct is another reason to keep them on a leash then they are outdoors.

Like any other average house pet, they need their fair share of exercise of a daily walk and the occasional hiking and jogging. Their high energy levels make them great companion for any form of exercise that requires a lot of stamina. One of the most difficult breeds to train and housebreak, Beagles find it a little difficult to learn commands and stick to discipline.

Overall, they do make for great pets especially if you have children and looking for a good companion and guardian for them.
