Baby Beagle Facts And Fun – Watch How He Grows!
The baby beagle is one of the most popular breeds of dogs today. They are very loyal and affectionate pets.
These adorable little pups make great companions for your family.
They have been bred since they were kittens to be a working dog, but their size makes them perfect for many other activities too such as agility, flyball, obedience and therapy work.
Baby Beagles are not only good with children, but they’re also very sociable and will enjoy spending time with everyone. Their intelligence is high enough that they’ll learn just about anything if given the chance.
They love to play fetch and tug of war so it’s no wonder why they’ve become so popular among dog owners.
Beagles are known for being smart and obedient. They do well in any type of training program because they’re adaptable.
You can train them to perform almost any task you want. One thing that sets these puppies apart from all others though is their natural ability to growl when needed. A beagle may bark, snarl or even howl, but it doesn’t mean it’s going to attack anyone!
These pups are very friendly and they love everyone. They’ll help anyone who needs it.
If you’re a hunter, the beagle’s loud barking will let you know when they’ve caught a scent, but they won’t chase the prey or else they’d catch it!
Beagles are naturally good-natured and funny as well. You may think their long ears make them goofy looking, but in reality these ears help to keep them cool and collected under pressure.
These dogs were bred to be bird dogs after all.
These dogs do require a good deal of exercise though, so make sure you take the time to play with them every day and run them around in the yard. They’re happy when they get to run free so don’t let them off their leash unless you’re sure they won’t go too far from you.
These dogs will do fine in an apartment if you take them out often. They are relatively inactive indoors though and may become restless and start barking or chewing on things if not given proper attention and mental stimulation.
If you don’t have the time to give them the exercise they need, these dogs do just as well in a smaller space where they won’t get bored.
The beagle is often called the “harbor dog” since they are known to have a great sense of smell and were originally bred to sniff out prey in the darkest corners. These dogs have a distinctive bark which is how they got their nickname “the baying dog”.
Beagles tend to have a lot of accidents in the house when they’re still learning what you expect of them. They’re very curious and if you leave a toilet seat up even for a moment, it’s likely to be chewed up or covered in pee.
You’ll need to be prepared to clean up a few messes during the first few weeks, but after that you shouldn’t have too many problems.
The beagle’s short coat is smooth and easy to care for. A quick brushing once or twice a week will remove dead hair and keep their coat shiny.
Beagles are sensitive to some flea treatments so make sure you find one that’s right for your pet.
The Beagle is an incredibly lovable breed. They are very attached to their owners and prefer to be right by your side.
If you do a lot of traveling, these dogs are not recommended for you. They suffer from separation anxiety and will become stressed if left alone for long periods of time.
Beagles have a funny habit of hanging their tongue out often and being drooly. They aren’t actually as dumb as they appear and are quite ingenious when they want to be.
This breed can often be stubborn, but with the right training they can be well-behaved. Beagles are very playful and friendly towards children.
The Beagle is an excellent family dog as long as you can make the time to give them the attention they crave. They can fit into small living spaces if you go on walks with them regularly and give them playtime.
These dogs will bark when someone is at the door so they can be good watchdogs, but they’ll also bark at anything that interests them so you have to learn how to be a good leader.
Beagles are generally healthy, but they are prone to epilepsy so make sure any prospective puppies’ parents have been cleared of this condition. Feed them a high-quality diet that keeps them at a healthy weight since they are prone to obesity.
Did you know Beagles have been depicted in popular media as having a superior sense of smell?
They have even been used for picking up by their scent alone, items lost around the house or buried under ground!
The Beagle is an extremely popular pet and this affection extends to the multitudes of fictional accounts in which this dog makes an appearance. It is common to see this dog type represented in cartoons and comic strips.
A few examples include Marmaduke, the classic comic strip in which the title character, a hapless Beagle, features; Snoopy, from the Peanuts series by Charles M. Schulz is a Beagle; and Winslow, from the comic Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson is a stuffed toy Beagle who comes to life.
These three notable fictional Beagles all share one characteristic, they all have human attributes and speak in a human tongue. Other popular fiction includes the title character of the film Beethoven and his numerous sequels, films in which a talking, musically talented Beagle features.
There you have it, a list of some of the most famous fictional Beagles. Of course there are many more fictional depictions of this lovable breed and it would be a true Beagle fan’s dream to collect all of them.
Owning a real life Beagle might not afford you the opportunity to converse with it in English, but you will be able to communicate through love and affection – something a fictional dog, no matter how lovable, will never be able to do!
