When it comes to choosing a family pet, the Beagle is a popular choice for many reasons. They are known for being friendly and outgoing, and they get along well with children. Beagles are also very active dogs, so they need plenty of exercise. Owning a Beagle is a big responsibility, but they are well worth the effort!

Characteristics Of The Beagle

Beagles are intelligent, single-minded dogs with a strong sense of smell. They can be difficult to train because they’re so determined once the hunt has started and oftentimes don’t pay attention or get distracted easily by other things in their environment which makes them good candidates for hunting applications where you need focused effort from your pup!

Beagles are known for being very vocal dogs. They bark and howl a lot, which can be annoying for some people. If you live in an apartment complex or close to other people, it’s important to make sure your Beagle has enough mental stimulation so he doesn’t start barking out of boredom.

This is a friendly breed and has an outgoing personality. They are also good with children, which makes them a popular choice for a family pet. However, beagles are very active dogs and love to run, so they need plenty of exercise.

How Much Exercise Do Beagles Need?

Beagles need a lot of exercise, and they can become destructive if they don’t get enough. You should expect to walk your beagle at least one hour everyday, preferably more. They love to run, so a good way to exercise them is to take them for a long walk or go for a jog.

Beagles are also known for being highly ‘food motivated’, which means they will do just about anything for a treat! This can make training them a bit more difficult (stealing food, garbage picking, etc), but it also means they are very food-driven and will work hard for a reward.

If you are having problems with your beagle’s behaviour, consult with a trainer. They will be able to help you identify the root of the problem and give you advice on how to fix it. Beagles are not typically aggressive dogs, but if their needs aren’t being met they will find other outlets for their energy. This can sometimes come out as hyperactivity which can then lead to aggression.

Beagles are a popular choice for a family pet because they are friendly, outgoing and good with children. They also need plenty of exercise. Owning a Beagle is a big responsibility, but they are well worth the effort!
