The beagle can be a delightful breed. They are adorable, smaller dogs, and beagle personalities make great pets if they are disciplined and well taken care of. If you fail to train and take good care of your dog, they can also be difficult. Caring for a beagle will be rewarding, however, if you are willing to educate yourself about the breed and make some effort.
In order to properly groom the pet, you will need to come to terms with the fact that regular grooming is required. Even though the breed has relatively short hair, you should brush it about once a week. This breed does shed a little, and doing this will also remove dirt and prevent an odor. Their ears also need care as well. Check the ears and clean them with a cotton ball about every other week. They can get dirty (and irritated) and develop an odor as well. You don’t need to bathe often, maybe once a month.
Beagles do have a tendency to over-eat if the opportunity presents itself, therefore you must take extra care not to over-feed him. You must also make sure to never feed him table scraps–he will be much healthier on a dry dog food. Also, as with any dog, he should be taken outside at least once or twice a day for a good stretch and a bit of exercise.
Dog training beagle puppies is a huge step in making sure your puppy grows into a well-minding dog. Although a friendly breed, the beagle can be stubborn (especially when it comes to looking for food). Be very consistent in your discipline and don’t slack off. Try to use positive reinforcement as opposed to negative punishment. If you have small children, be careful, as they tend to nip or bite if provoked.
Remember that beagle can live from 12-15 years, so be prepared for that commitment that caring for a beagle entails. If you look into proper care and properly train, feed, and clean your beagle, you should be a happy owner of this wonderful breed.
If you are looking to find beagles for sale, the internet is a great place to start. You may also find some great deals by looking in the classifieds section of your local newspaper. Take care in choosing your pet and make sure that the breeder is reputable.
