The Friendly Beagle Dog

Jun 26, 2008
Beagle dogs are a popular addition to many families, because they can make a playful, friendly family pet. While it is important to keep in mind that temperament can vary from Beagle to Beagle, overall these dogs are considered social and enjoy spending lots of time with their families. Most will do well with children, as long as the kids are taught how to treat the dog properly. Beagles tend to be intelligent dogs with strong instincts and a keen sense of smell.

This can make training and housebreaking a Beagle a bit more challenging than training other breeds of dogs. But once your pup has successfully learned the rules of the house, he is not likely to forget them easily.

Training of a Beagle dog should begin taking place as soon as you bring your puppy home from the breeder. It is much easier to teach your Beagle the rules of the house from the beginning, rather than trying to change bad habits after they have started.

The key is in starting early, both with housebreaking and other types of obedience training. Beagles may take two to four months of intensive crate training before getting fully housebroken. Other types of training can take a bit longer, and obedience classes may prove helpful here. The good news is that once your Beagle is completely trained, you will have a playful, social dog that the entire family can enjoy.

If you like to take long, brisk walks daily, then the Beagle will make the perfect companion for you. These dogs tend to be active and enjoy lots of exercise. They also have an instinct to run, particularly if an interesting scent catches their attention. Because of this, it is always best to keep your Beagle dog on his leash or in his fenced backyard. Unless of course the Beagle is found curled up inside the house amid his family. This will become a Beagle's most favorite spot of all. The social aspect of your Beagle's personality will make him crave the companionship of his family, so train him well and he will make a friendly addition to your home.

So if you are looking for the perfect companion for your entire family the Beagle dog might be the perfect choice for you. Take some time to collect all of the Beagle information that you can find to determine whether a Beagle will make a positive addition to your home.

This means that training your Beagle will require time, patience and consistency before your pup learns the rules of the house sufficiently. The best advice is to start early and stay consistent until your Beagle is housebroken and completely trained. And plan to spend plenty of time enjoying your new dog.

Beagles are highly social creatures that love being with their families as often as possible for as long as possible. This is not a dog that can live outdoors alone most of the time. Your pet will be happiest when he is with you and the rest of the family.
