English Beagle

The Beagle is considered to be one of the most happy-go-lucky, nonchalant breeds in the field. His disposition is that of a humorous nature. The Beagle originated in the early 1800s in England where his original purpose was to trail and hunt rabbits. The Beagle is happiest when he is able to follow his own nose, which can often lead him into trouble. He belongs to the group of dogs known as the scent hounds. The Beagle was originally developed from the Talbot Hound, North Country Beagle, and Southern Hound. The Beagle is a solid, muscular breed of a convenient size. The Beagle is known for its floppy ears and adorable expression. The Beagle has a short and smooth coat, making maintaining his coat relatively easy. All you have to do is maintain his coat by brushing him weekly with a rubber curry brush and he is all set to go.

Beagle Breed History

It is believed that the word “beagle” was derived from a French word meaning “open throat”. This is believed to have been a direct reference to the way the Beagle bays. While his history is not well-documented, it is believed that the Beagle may have originated from pack hounds before the Roman era. The current Beagle is known to have been developed in the 1800s, bred between the Talbot Hound, the North Country Beagle, and the Southern Hound. The Beagle was also developed to be an easy-going breed with a strong hunting feature. In the early 1900s, there was a push to modify the breed by attempting to create a uniform size and temperament in the Beagle. There are even reports that the Beagle may have originated from the Harrier. While his heritage dates back to the packs of hunting dogs used to hunt deer and hare, the Beagle originated from England. The Beagle is said to have been used by hunters due to its compact size. There are some known Beagles in the pop culture world. For example, Snoopy is the most well known Beagle. The Beagle has also lived in the White House when President Lyndon B. Johnson was in office. In the 1840s, the Beagle was exported to the United States strictly for hunting purposes. In 1885, the Beagle was officially recognized by the AKC. In 1888, the National Beagle Club was created and the Beagle was categorized by size: under 13 inches and 13 to 15 inches. The Beagle became popular as a family pet due to its friendly and happy disposition. 

Beagle Breed Appearance

The Beagle has a strong, lean but muscular appearance. The front legs are straight and contain much bone. The legs are proportionately sized and the feet are round and contain hard pads. His hips and thighs appear strong and well-muscled. The Beagle appears to have a stance of power at his normal pose. The Beagle has large hazel or brown eyes. His expression is usually that of a pleading nature. His long, broad ears are rounded at the tip and set low. His muzzle is medium-length and shaped square and straight. The Beagle's neck is medium-length, blending into sloping shoulders. His tail has a slight curvature when wagged excitedly while in action. The coat is short and smooth. The Beagle's colors consist of black and tan, black red and white, black tan and bluetick, black tan and white, blue tan and white, brown and white, brown white and tan, lemon and white, red and white, tan and white, and ticked markings.

Beagle Breed Maintenance

The Beagle's short and smooth coat is easy to maintain. Weekly brushing will help remove dead hair and promote growth. A rubber curry brush is recommended for the brushing. The Beagle should be bathed every 4 to 6 weeks, if necessary. Showering him more often can lead to overproduction of oil on his skin. The Beagle is not considered hypoallergenic and a medium-level shedder. Due to his floppy ears, it is important to regularly wipe and clean his ears to avoid debris from infecting them. The Beagle has a low smell level and is relatively clean. His nails should be trimmed every 3 to 4 weeks to prevent them from overgrowing. The Beagle should be provided with walks and playtime in order to maintain his stamina. While the Beagle can get away with living in an apartment, he would thrive best in an environment where he is free to run around and follow his nose.  If he lives in an apartment dwelling, it is essential to allow him to take long walks and track with  his nose. The Beagle likes to remain active and can become destructive if left to his own devices. This breed is not known to have any special dietary requirements.

Beagle Temperament

The Beagle is considered to be one of the most easy-going and friendly breeds in the Hound group. The Beagle loves to provide and be provided with companionship. He loves to be able to explore the outdoors and follow his nose. He can be stubborn if he is left untrained. If provided with the necessary exercise, the Beagle can thrive in the great outdoors, though once exploration time is done, he will be happiest indoors with the family. The Beagle is known to be an excellent family dog, especially with children. His tolerant nature will allow playfulness with children. Early socialization can help prevent conflicts with other pets such as cats. The Beagle loves to be independent in some of his activities, which can mean he will follow his nose in places he should not be! The Beagle is known for his barking, howling, and baying. The Beagle is also known for his mischievous nature and his nose tends to get him in trouble. Even with training, this dog may present himself as a stubborn breed, motivated mostly by food.

Our family beagle, Bridey, was the absolute best. Beagle's are incredibly energetic which means they can be difficult to train, as they are constantly looking around for something to be distracted by. Bridey was a yelper, she needed space to run around and have fun, and wouldn't be great in a condo or apartment where she would be locked up for long instances. I'd even go as far to say that Beagle's need space outside that's a distant from neighbors, unless you don't like them ;). Bridey did well with a dog friend and in public, but as she aged was quick to put on weight and had back problems. Beagle's make amazing pups if trained right, loved, and ran.

The beagles that I have walked for the most part have been very spunky and full of energy. They are always friendly but do not seem to be as affectionate as other breeds of dogs. They are never harmful to myself as a walker or other dogs. They seem to mind their own business and really do love a brisk walk. They also love to lead the way on the walks.

Her name was zoey and she was so nice and very cute. She didn't bark at all. Very friendly I took her around the block. And she wanted to stop to sniff everything. I mean everything her owner did let me know she sometimes will try to eat poop of other dogs. I made sure she didn't. She made a few stops but was a good walker. She was very calm. We past by cats and they didn't bother her at all. Humans past by and also she just kept on walking.

Beagles are very cute, small sized dogs that make excellent companions. This beagle was not barky, but very excited to go on a walk. The Beagle was well-behaved on the leash, not tugging but definitely trying to lead the way . The beagle is friendly with other dogs and people and thrives on positive reinforcement and affection! They have a quite nose on them which leads to lots of sniffing and focus on the ground.

One of my favorite walks was with a beagle named Billie. She is a sweet girl ever since the day we met. She’s allowed to roam the house freely when alone. So she must be well trained and trustworthy. She’s a good walker. She does tend to pull with her harness on. She will occasionally bark up other dogs while walking by on the leash. She loves the dog park. I’ll throw the ball and she’ll chase but not always bring it back! It’s always a pleasant experience with the beagle breed.

The beagle I walked loved to try to eat everything off the ground and bark at other dogs if they got too close to him. He ran and jumped in the snow and had a ball, but his sister couldn't care any less. He liked to lick the snow and even try to eat it (he was usually successful.) This beagle's absolute favorite snack is dried blueberries; the owner had me give his one after I put on his cold weather clothes because he HATES sweaters and coats.

I used to walk this beagle by Fort Tryon and he was extremely friendly and didn’t mind other dogs to come by and say hello. He was always very happy to go for the walk and loved being pet. Sad to say but at the ending of the walks, as I used to leave him in the apt after the walk, he would bark because he would start missing me as I would leave his apt after the walk.

Beagles are loyal and friendly, eager to please. They bark often when excited. Beagles are best walked on a harness, as they tend to follow their nose which can lead to pulling. They are not picky eaters and may try to eat food or garbage off of the ground. Beagles tend to have a lot of energy and require daily exercise and stimulation. Their intelligence and affinity for food/treats makes them easy to train.

Every time I’ve ever walked Larry he always always howls from the moment I open the door til I go and greet him face to face upstairs lol then he races down the stairs and jumps on the couch where his harness is and runs to the door then back to me then to the door and starts jumping and howling lol he has a serious amount of energy it’s pretty amazing. Then we go on the walk and his nose is to the ground the entire walk he’s all about his smells. Noticed he howls when I leave too but otherwise he’s still fairly good about me leaving

The beagle has an even temper and gentle disposition. Described in several breed standards as "merry", they are amiable and typically neither aggressive nor timid, although this depends on the individual. They enjoy company, and although they may initially be standoffish with strangers, they are easily won over. They make poor guard dogs for this reason, although their tendency to bark or howl when confronted with the unfamiliar makes them good watch dogs. In a 1985 study conducted by Ben and Lynette Hart, the beagle was given the highest excitability rating, along with the Yorkshire Terrier, Cairn Terrier, Miniature Schnauzer, West Highland White Terrier, and Fox Terrier.[41][c]

Beagles are such a fun breed. They’re quite comical with their signature bark howl. Super easy low maintenance dogs and just a blast to be around. They are sniffers, explorers, and hunters. Be prepared for lots of walks with them hunting out squirrels. They have quite the personality and are super Lovy Dovy with their floppy ears. If they get alerted and their howling begins, you’re in for a fun treat. Never have had any trouble behavior wise with Beagles as they’re just happy go lucky doggys. They are probably the most adorable puppy’s you’ll ever lay your eyes on. Once you see them it’s live at first sight.

Beagles are very loud dogs that are full of energy! They like to play and are very sweet but can become to excited sometimes. And again they live to bark they bark when they're happy or sad or angry or just normal. They can be harder to train because they think they're know it alls!

Copper was a sweet, sweet little hounddog. He is still a puppy, so his energy levels are very high. He is a very investigative little guy. He likes to sniff out every little person, place, or thing. He is excited to see other dogs and meet them, and confused when they don't want to do the same with him. Copper is also a little misbehaved, and he does not always want to listen to me. He is a little man with his own agenda.

Beagles are very excitable. They will jump and run and play for hours without tiring. They also bark and howl for what seems like forever. They can easily get out of hand. But luckily they are also extremely smart and easy to train. I would recommend a harness when they're little because they do like to pull because they need to be everywhere right this instant. Treats and toys are a good motivator for these dogs. Once you got them trained, they are perfect little dogs. Very loyal and such a delight to be around. But they need a lot of attention to get there.

I believe my first experience with a beagle was with Charlie the beagle. He was about 3 years old, well trained, smaller in stature, and very friendly. He was even friendly with the cat that was in their apartment. Charlie was happy to see me and greet me; I've noticed this is common in all the beagle I've walked. He was ready to go as soon as I put his leash on him, but he was scratching at the door or begging. He was very patient. While outside he showed a lot of energy and joy, I could see it in his walk and his overall demeanor. There was park by the owners home so I took him there. He really enjoyed walking through the grass. I've noticed that beagles are very playful and friendly, with people and dogs. I had a ball with me that I would throw to him and he would fetch it and bring it back. Whenever we walked by other dogs, he would greet them, sniff them, and keep moving. He was very friendly with people. Every person we passed, he would walk up to them so they can pet him. I had him for an hour so he has the endurance and the interest in staying outside for large amounts of time. Another good thing is that beagle’s poop, for the most part, are smaller in size, so it's less of a hassle to pick up and carry around till you reach a garbage can. Beagles are also very versatile. They can be extroverts or introverts, depending on the occasion. If you sit down at home with a beagle and just pet them, they can just lay there and enjoy it for hours, they don't always need that rush of energy. Then when you want to play with a beagle whether indoors or out, they have the energy to play around a lot. So to me they're perfect if you're a person who likes a little bit of both in your own life. Another great thing about beagles is that they can have a long life span. Healthy beagles are capable of living from 12 to 15 years, which for dogs is pretty impressive. So you don't have to worry about having to say goodbye to a loved one for at least 12 years, and this would probably be the best 12 years of your life in regards to owning a beagle. Beagles are the best.

Despite the Beagle’s mature age, she continued to be as playful as ever. I was fooled that she was in fact 11 years old by her spunky and lively spirit. Even though Beagle’s are relatively small dogs, they make up for their small size with a large personality that springs into life when they catch an interesting scent. Although they are often quite playful, Beagle’s may also be stubborn. But being bred as a scenthound, who can blame them! They are the perfect dogs to explore the outdoors with as it places them in their natural habitat. They are fun and affectionate, and will want to be in your presence whenever possible. As sweet natured dogs they will provide loyalty and spontaneous adventures their whole life!

The Beagle is a fiercely loyal breed. They are slow to warm up to strangers, but can easily and quickly be won over. They have a lot of energy, so exercise at least twice a day is necessary to having a Beagle in the family. They are also a little difficult to train, because they have a tendency to be stubborn, if the behaviour is not snuffed quickly during their early days of training. Beagles should hardly, if ever, be allowed to walk off leash. Since they were bred for being scenthounds to hunt rabbits, their nose can send them (and you!) off running after the faintest scent of something that interests them.. Another perk of having a good sniffer like a beagle- most of the time, they are very food motivated. This helps greatly with obedience training and getting them to be your friend!

The beagle that I walked was a great girl. She was pretty elderly and had trouble hearing, but that did not stop her from enjoying her walk! She had been rescued and was pretty skittish of new people, not aggressive, but very cautious around them. About 15 minutes into our walk she warmed up to me as her walker and guide. Even though she was elderly she enjoyed sniffing her way through the walk like most beagles do. At first I was concerned she would not make it through the walk because of her age, but she was a spry little pup and had no trouble even at 13 years old! She probably could have walked even further than we went in our 30 minutes. Also, once she warmed up she was happy to accept pets from me. Beagles can have their own particular ways of doing things, but they are a great breed!

She is a super sweet old rescue girl. She loves to walk, just a short distance. She is very excited when you get the leash out and she realizes she is going out. Dude to the excitement she tends to pull slightly with her nose to the ground tracking and smelling anything possible. She does great with other dogs she has a bother her age (12) whom is a labordor retrever and a sister whom is 2 and also a golden labador reterever. She shares well with her pack, loves her humans.

From walking multiple beagles on the Wag app I've learned that they are very stubborn dogs. At first approach they are very kind and welcoming but on the walk you are on their schedule. They tend to want to sniff every inch of the ground and when they want to go down a certain street or sniff a certain bush they will make sure it's done. They take the lead and resist often but I overall think they are kind dogs who just enjoy sniffing and howling.

I walk a Beagle mix every week. I love this dog. She is a very sweet girl that always is excited for her walks. When we walk she likes to sniff around and get all the scents in. She still is very good at following my lead, but I like to go at her pace so she enjoys herself. She likes to sit for treats and loves to be pet. Well trained and has great manners. She will look at passer bys, but never barks. Very smart dog.

I owned a Beagle as a child growing into my young adulthood. One thing I can definitely vouch for is how vocal they are! They can bark and howl along all day if they see fit. I wouldn't say they're the easiest to train either. They can be a bit of a goof ball. Very sweet family dogs and definitely a go-to pup if you're looking for a dog that pretty much is always up for a good jog or run around town. Their enthusiasm to go out and explore will have you being dragged along pretty much everywhere. They love sniffing around new areas for sure and have a bit of an explorers side to them. They definitely make great family dogs and get along very well with children. I personally remember using mine as a personal teddy when I was younger, one of the sweetest dogs I've dealt with.

Meet Bagel the Beagle!!! I ventured to Virginia today so Bagel was my first Virginia walk! Bagel is one young pup and has the sweetest little face that I'm pretty sure says "I'm gonna get into so much trouble but get away with it because look at this money maker"! It was very hard to not pick up Bagel constantly and give her kisses and swaddle her like a newborn.

Meet Pixie! Pixie was such a shy girl who did not want to get out of her bed - and who could blame her?! Once she realized I was there to walk her, she came running towards me ready to go. While on our walk, her hunting skills went into full mode as she searched for squirrels and birds! She loved to stand on other people’s stoops and stare at the pesky squirrels until they ran away. Clearly Pixie was doing her job! She also loved burrowing in the massive leave piles that were built up on the side of the street. When passing Big Bear Restaurant, she saw a bird she was entranced by. But then a toddler crawled out from under the table and scared Pixie. Understandably so since kids scare me too.

I have had multiple wag boarding experiences with a particular Beagle who is currently three years old. I genuinely look forward to seeing this pup whenever I am lucky enough to board him! When I fist met the beagle I boarded, he was slightly timid at first; however, he warmed up almost immediately and learned to trust me soon after. The beagle enjoyed running around in my backyard and playing fetch with his tennis ball or most of the other toys his owner had packed for him. The beagle had very high energy at times, but also loved to cuddle and relax at night time. He loved going for long walk around the neighborhood, but he did not like the cold very much, so I had to make sure he had his coat on when we went out for walks in the winter time. While walking the beagle, he was very well behaved and trained. Typically, the beagle did not pull very hard or much at all while on our walks. Occasionally, he would pull slightly when on the leash if he would see a bird pass by, but was mostly unfazed by squirrels that would cross our path. When walking the beagle, he was easily excited by other dogs that were passing by or in their respective homes. According to the owner of the beagle, he would get very aggressive towards other dogs that were on leashes, but would not be affected by dogs if they were not on leashes. I have never had another dog in my home while the beagle was boarding with me, so I am unsure if this is the case; however he really does not act kindly when passing by dogs on leashes on our walks. Having said that, he is an absolute sweetheart! This particular beagle is probably not used to being near other dogs as the owner does not own any others but him. The beagle was and is by far my favorite dog that I have had the pleasure to board with Wag! My entire family loves this beagle and he was very friendly towards children. The beagle was extremely friendly, well trained, house broken, playful, and so loving! Based off of my experiences with this special beagle friend, the beagle breed is at the very top of my list for adopting when the time comes and I am able to take care of a dog myself!

Beagles are a great medium sized dog. They are a bit of a puller during walks and require redirection and training to have a nice walk. Particularly, with the Beagle that I walk, he is easily distracted by trash, squirrels, and other common objects that come across during a walk. A harness is a nice way to get Beagles to relax and let go of their distracted mindset. Shorter walks that allow for bathroom breaks are a nice way to get Beagles used to the goal of walks. That way you can have more frequent shorter walks to allow them time to workout and stretch. They are known for their nose and will sniff out anything that is in the area. With Beagles, I find positive reinforcement and praising their good moments help them feel loved and want to learn. When seeing other dogs, the Beagle I walk does great and does not jump or bark. He simply sniffs the other dogs to get to know them. Also, the Beagle I walk is good with other children, but does get triggered by adults that are wrapped up in winter clothes walking towards him. I find that being the leader for the walk is a good way to get a nice walk out of a Beagle and train them well.

Beagles are very friendly towards people and other dogs. The beagle I walked, Cliffy, loved sniffing basically everything around him, the grass, the trees, etc. Therefore, they like to stop often. During the walk they would leave the house very excited and wanting to pull a little but not too bad. When it wast time for me to leave, he was very sad and almost whining that I was leaving him on his own so I felt really bad but they know and are super smart because as soon as I walked in again, he stopped whining. They love company.

As beagle owners know, all beagles are mostly the same — nose to the ground while walking, lives for food, and once full on treats or whatever else they can find just want to sleep :) I used to live in NYC and walked the most incredible beagle everyday for 2 years. We very much so became best friends and I became very close to his owners as well. He spent every thanksgiving & Christmas with me as I would watch him also when his owners would go away. In knowing him so long, I got to know his quirks and temperaments. Beagles are full of love and exploration. It is rare; however, that their bellies are not full as well :)

The beagle I walked was older so she was not too energetic but still enjoyed walking around. She barked a lot when I first came into the home but once she warmed up to me she was perfectly fine! She loved to sniff around a lot.

Beagles have an excellent sense of smell. This beagle could find any crumb in the busy city. He would tug a lot on the leash and be stubborn to get what ever he is after. I learned if I start a jog he doesn’t pay attention to the smells as much and focuses on more on where we are going. He loves to play! He would do a sneak attack on my shoes because he knew he was not supposed to chew them. So I would play with his chew toys and get distracted by the tv and ignore him. He would immediately bring me my shoes because he knew it was wrong. It was adorable because as soon as he got my attention he would switch back to his chew toys and leave my shoes alone. He loves to play fetch as well. He’d watch the ball and stay by my side and as soon as the ball hit the ground he would sprint to it, stop 10 feet away, sneak toward it and pounce on it. He was very friendly with other dogs and would sniff them. If a dog was across the street he would lay down and roll in his back so the other dog could approach him. He was friendly with other people too. He wanted to meet every person we walked past. He would never jump on them just sniff at their feet and bed for attention. He also had a beautiful point form. He could point at anything he wanted (especially squirrels) and demand you go in that direction. Overall Beagles are great dogs that are super friendly and love other dogs and humans. They love to hunt and are easily distracted on walks by food and debris on the ground.

I walk a Beagle named Elvis. He has incessant Cherry Eye issues. Is always very excited to see his walker and jumps up A LOT. Pulls when on leash HARD - especially towards other dogs. Not aggressively, just so excited. Wants to stop and smell everything on walks. Is quite responsive to treats. Once he is calmed down likes to lay inside and stare out window.

Most beagles I've met are either incredibly high energy or super lazy! I've owned a beagle mix and she's very high energy, and I've walked some that were very overweight and only wanted to snuggle with their humans (or anyone who would play with them!) They don't have a very good sense of direction but they do like to try and escape yards and sometimes leashes, so it's important to make sure they are kept in a safe environment and someone keeps an eye on them or they might not be able to find their way home. They're super sweet family dogs though, and they're fairly easy to train. They do make good "beginner" dogs, mostly based on their size and temperament. For someone who isn't an experienced dog owner, beagles can be a good option. Because they're on the smaller size, they can also be a great option for people who live in apartments! They're great dogs and even if you're less experienced, they can be a great addition to the family!

When I walked a Beagle with Wag, the dog did not want to go on his walk at first. I could tell that he just woke up from a nap upon arrival because he was yawning and I think this affected his desire to walk/run in the beginning of the walk. I took the dog to a community dog park, and this worked out well, but when this type of dog sniffed something he wanted to find/go after, it was impossible to distract him and make him focus on the walk. We spent about 10 minutes of the walk in the same area because he wanted to sniff something out. After he didn't care anymore, we went to the dog park and this dog became more playful. It was autumn, so he rolled around in the leaves. After that, he wanted to run around and chase birds that were nearby in the park. It was difficult to make him pose for the Wag report card photo, and he did not really want to listen to me during the walk. At the end of the walk, I think he knew it was over and still wanted to walk because he started biting my shoes and shoe laces. This was a totally new side seen with this type of dog, but I did get him home, took off his harness/leash, and get him settled down before leaving. I would walk this type of dog again, but note that you may not be able to control the actions if it is not trained well/is still young.

The beagle I walked was super sweet. He loved to stop and sniff and he would've eaten things off the street if I hadn't been alert. He was very interested in the cats that we saw and did a wonderful beagle bark/bay when he saw them. His coat is short and doesn't need very much grooming. His overall health was good. He trotted along on the walk with me and didn't indicate any obvious health issues. He went up and down the stairs without issue too. He was super friendly with me and excited when I came into the house. He was very interested in treats and was very responsive to commands when I offered him one. He didn't walk perfectly next to me and when he stopped to sniff things he would hold back or when he got excited he would pull ahead.

Walking Sadie the Beagle was an awesome experience to have. With little to no time spent with Beagles, and this being my first few times with one, it is very easy to say that they are loving, intelligent, and loyal dogs. Walking throughout the apartment complex with her and allowing her to do her own thing while on the leash was amazing. For a little puppy still, she showed great leadership and a very adventurous personality. We also played fetch, although she is still far too young to know to return the ball, she did go after it and stop it mid-track. A funny moment that she had was courageously climbing a flight of stairs but not knowing how she would get down when the time came. She was showing great traits of a dog that uses her sense of smell when she would walk around the big court yard area to do her business. Sniffing anything and everything she could see. Sadie would chase a leaf tumbling on the ground till she would catch it and then look up at me with a big smile on her face to show me her reward and her new play toy, well while it would last. Her walks are short and simple around the complex but since she is still young, she does get exhausted near the end of her walks. She does not like to be left alone after the walk and begs me to stay with her and watch her eat, or play with her and her toys. She has a beautiful bark/howl and is not afraid to let you know her presence is there. For such a young dog, she is a very courageous and smart puppy. If you were to ask me about getting a Beagle as a pet, I would recommend them 10 out of 10 times because they are loving animals, show great loyalty, and show great traits of leadership. They have a unique personality unlike any other breed that I have worked with and been around. A personality that would definitely be one to have around daily and get to love and know. Beagles are awesome dogs all around and I would love to have one eventually later on in my life! If you're thinking about getting one, do not hesitate to get it, they are great breeds and a great pet to have around the family.

My childhood dog Mabel was a beagle mix and the sweetest dog there ever was. She loved all people and would sit still to be pet for hours! She liked other dogs as well, when she was younger she would get together with other dogs to run around and play. Mabel was very much a scent hound and would follow her nose wherever it may lead- tugging on the leash was a problem because of this. She was also very stubborn and if she was not ready to move on from a smell she would park herself in that spot and not leave until SHE was ready. Training was difficult because of this stubbornness. She wasn't really motivated to please, but did respond well to training with treats. =) She did have several health issues over the course of her life, most significantly the development of benign cysts all over her body. They weren't malignant but could grow quite large and we had to have one on her shoulder surgically removed because it was impinging her nerves and tendons. She also developed mobility problems in her old age. Her back limbs grew increasingly weak over the last year or so of her life. She lived to be 16.5 years old though! She was the most loyal companion anyone could ever have.

Very loyal companion, are mostly full of energy, although you can not generalize, all dogs are different, it will depend on several factors for the experience. For example I’ve walked a young beagle (3 years) that had overweight and could not run too much he was very aggressive. In other ocasión I had the opportunity to walked an old female which was super friendly with dogs and humans so everyone liked her.

The Beagles that I have walked through the app have all had a lot in common. Generally slower movers, most of them have been itching to get outside, though once they do, it's all about the sniffing. They will find a spot to sniff and search and want to stay there. With a little careful planning as to where you'd like to walk with them, you can get them moving and directed. Training seems to be more difficult with beagles, though they are very intelligent dogs with high potential for learning and listening. Overall, they are loving pups with a laughable attitude and a fun-loving spirit. They seem to generally love people and get along with other dogs if you train them well as puppies. I'd highly recommend this breed to anyone looking for a new pup!

From my experience, Beagle's keep their nose to the ground during most of the walk. As a result, they are prone to picking up anything and everything that could turn out to be a tasty morsel. While walking Beagles, I make sure to keep an eye to the future, scanning the sidewalk in front of us so that the dog doesn't have an opportunity to gobble up a chicken bone or something that could potentially cause harm. Instead of barking, Beagles make more of a howling sound. It can be loud and take you by surprise, especially while walking. On my walks, Beagles have done this occasionally when passing other dogs. Overall, the Beagle is a lovely dog to walk as long as you make sure they do not pick up anything of the streets. Their smaller size makes the actual walk pretty easy. Being a very food motivated breed based on their smelling ability, it is always a good idea to keep treats handy, should your Beagle prove to be more difficult than expected.

Beagles are great dogs! They love tracking and sniffing, so walks with them usually involve them having their noses to the ground and sniffing everything they can. Most are very alert and may be prone to barking at other dogs, loud noises, or people. Every beagle I have ever met also frequently wants to pick up trash and poop while they walk, so that's something to keep an eye on. Many of them like to play so having a ball on hand or some other toy will help them burn some of their energy. They need to be distracted and kept busy or they can become destructive. They need lots of room to roam, so they are good dogs for someone with a more active lifestyle. With their short coats, they only require periodic brushing and cleaning. Their long ears will sometimes dip in their food so they may need to be wiped down!

The beagle was a great dog to walk. The dog was continually sniffing and enjoying all the scents of the outdoors. The dog could either walk or run with you. It continually wanted to go at a quick speed, mainly a brisk walk. The dog was a chewer and tried to continually chew on the leash.

Lucky is the sweetest pup I’ve met to date. She is very shy at first, but incredibly friendly and easy going once she is familiar with someone. She does not particularly enjoy meeting other dogs, though she is great with them should they choose to greet her. She is not aggressive by any means but does tend to shy away. She likes to keep a close eye on her walker while she is out. Lucky is the gentlest soul!

I walk two Beagles on the regular. Usually two to three times a week. They are actually Boggles, a mix between a beagle and a boxer. But they look just like beagles, except with slightly darker fur. These two are always ready to go for their walks. They are small but do not be fooled. They are very strong and will pull you the whole time. They love to sniff EVERYTHING! They have great noses. These two absolutely love other dogs. They go crazy when they see other dogs because they want to play with them so badly. They do not understand that some dogs are not as friendly as they are and that they can't just run up to every single dog that they see. They are great walkers though and I really enjoy getting to walk them every week.

Pudding is a dog that I have walked many times, she is old and easygoing. I have never heard her bark even though it is something that beagles are quite popular for. I would say that beagles are great first time dogs, as they are sweet and easy to care for. They also have a lot of spunk when they are younger. Ever seen cats vs dogs the movie?

Beagles are curious and fairly high energy dogs. They aren't afraid to vocalize their emotions with long drawn out howls or incessant barks. If not trained properly, they will pull hard on the leash trying to explore their surroundings. They might also try and eat various things they find around them. While friendly, they don't always love other dogs or humans and oftentimes "cry wolf" when they deem something a threat.

I've had a Beagle in the past so I enjoyed walking a Beagle on Wag. The Beagle I walked was a very friendly boy. He was one of the bigger beagles I've seen - not overweight, just taller in height. He was excited to meet me and liked being pet. He loved walking and being outdoors. True to his breed, he intently sniffed everything as we walked, following the scent. He pulled on the leash a little bit. He just really loved walking and getting some exercise. He was well-behaved and would respond to verbal commands and his name. His coat appeared to be well-groomed and he was in good shape. He was a sweet, happy boy and I loved hanging out with him.

I recently walked Rosie, an adorable (adult) Beagle. She was very high-energy and just wanted to go, go, go. I'm certain I could've walked her for 8 hours and she still would've wanted more. Rosie was extremely interested in smelling everything, no matter how gross or how out-of-her-way the stinky item was. Rosie has a high prey drive, so she was able to instantly zero-in on squirrels and rats. Rosie was also trainable, but very stubborn. As soon as her nose was locked onto something, it was nearly impossible to break her keen focus unless I was waving a treat inches away from her nose. With treats, however, she was quick to respond to commands like "sit" and "paw". Rosie, like many beagles, is also very smart and is able to quickly understand when she's faced with a problem, and how to solve those problems. For example, while we were walking, we took the stairs. However, next to the stairs was a wall-type barrier which remained the same level while the stairs were going downwards. When Rosie began to walk along the barrier, she quickly realized that the leash was not long enough, but that it was also too far to safely jump. Without my nudging her or luring her, she walked back the way she came and joined me down the stairs. While Rosie can be stubborn at the most inopportune times, she can also be stubborn in the best ways: she is incredibly affectionate. If she wanted to lick my face, there was no stopping her. If she wanted my attention, she would rise up on her hind legs and put her front paws on my legs (and there was no teaching her otherwise). Rosie did well with other dogs, but she mostly ignored other people, so I didn't have to worry about her jumping on them. Her positive and excited attitude, her high energy, and her intelligence would make her a good fit for older children and young adults looking to get a dog. They do need a lot of exercise as they were bred as hunting dogs, but they don't all need a lot of attention, and are in fact fairly independent as far as dogs go. They can be left alone for periods of time without developing anxiety like other dogs do. When walking beagles, it is very important to make sure you keep a few steps ahead (visually) from the dog. Rosie would instantly sniff out other dog's poop, old burnt-out cigarettes, and even salt that had been sprinkled on the ground to combat early morning ice. This is especially important if you live in the city, where a dog that follows his or her nose is more likely to accidentally stick its face somewhere dangerous. It also means that carrying around high-reward treats will be the best trick up your sleeve: unless you have something that is a higher reward for your beagle, it will be nearly impossible to break their focus or attention on the item they so desperately want to sniff (or lick, or eat).

I've met many beagles over the years and they are all quiet different but all very much the same. Lots of energy! Lots of barking and excitement! Very family friendly. I would keep an good eye on them because they like to chase squirrels and small critters. They are pullers on the leash because they are on an mission. Beagles need exercise because they tend to eat too much and get a little too fluffy. Beagles are not supposed to be round, they are a hunting dog that needs to be ready to catch that squirrel!

Peanut was primarily interested in finding street snacks and sleeping on the couch. Getting Peanut to get off the couch was a feat unto itself, but his reluctance was met with the opportunity to have a fun time and because his younger brother was willing to impart the enthusiasm, he was more than willing to get hyped. Because Peanut is an elderly pup, walking down the stairs was a slow procedure, but once we got outside, no one would expect his age. He pulled on the leash in pursuit of good smells like a young sprout. Beagles are pursuers of small animals and, as such, often have their noses hovering closely above the ground for the entirety of the walk. Peanut did not diverge from this trait. He scoured every tree, light post, trash can, and tree that we happened to pass by. This behavior does tend to lead to some stubbornness and an inability to move at any sort of quick pace, but this is the type of behavior that brings him joy. It is, however, a feat to keep him from trying to feast upon any sort of street treat that he might happen upon. It is important during our strolls to keep him moving to both prevent him from eating anything that might cause digestive issues or prevent him from getting the exercise that he deserves. When given the opportunity to practice tricks he is reluctant, but does enjoy them. In these situations he is a personable and charming little guy. I do enjoy walking Peanut whenever I get the opportunity to do so. His tail wagging desire to fulfill the happiness of his human companion and his dedication to his own desires is charming.

I have found beagles to be quite stubborn when walking. If they’re on a scent, they will pull or stop to keep smelling. I have also walked beagles that will howl when they’re on a scent. I have also carried beagles home because they refused to continue the walk. They’re pretty docile after walks and can respond well with training.

I love beagles they are soooooo cute and loveable. The beagle I walked was very friendly and energetic. It loved to play around and sniff . I think they need a lot of exercise to keep them healthy. Beagles are a very smart bread that enjoy hunting. People love beagles because they are very good hunters and beagle will get a lot of attention on the street, they are a people lover. When walking past other dogs she was very friendly the other dogs did not seem to bother her at all. Even though dogs did not cats did seem to have an affect on her when she saw a cat she would try to go chase after it. I think that beagle like getting petted. They have the fur that seem to shed a lot and need a lot of grooming. Overall this bread would make a great companion to have.

The best way to describe him would be very smart but very independent-minded. This made for a pup who knows right from wrong but sometimes makes wrong choices. He was extremely excited to go on a walk and equally happy to cuddle amongst some pillows with snacks. His shiny coat is the envy of all who pass!

Roxy is a very mature and docile Beagle. I have worked with her four times. She trusted me completely by the end of the second time. She does not obsess over garbage like some other breeds, but she will immediately eat anything she finds to her liking, in spite of her excellent manners in all other affairs. She walks at a moderate pace and maintains her calm demeanor with great persistence, well accustomed to city life. She never barks and always responds to my voice when I used such precise articulations as, “Roxy, time to walk!” Roxy is consistently gentle, calm and inquisitive. Some younger dogs were intimidated by her age and experience, yapping at her as we walked but Roxy never flinched at their growls. She is social and Stoic. I believe this to be an intrinsically-Beagle quality. She only disobeyed me if she found the presence of a loose bagel or tree mulch irresistible.

The beagles I’ve walked have always been a lot of fun. They’re very friendly dogs. They have a nice coat that don’t require too much work. They also have the cutest floppy ears. They’re big sniffers. They will go down the block smelling anything and everything around. They will find food fast, probably before you could even notice is. They will want to smell other people and dogs as well. Some of them have a howl to them that is super adorable. They like to play. One I walked loved to play fetch. She also loved treats. They can sometimes be extremely weary of strangers and defensive. Once they get a good sniff out and get comfortable, they’re big love bugs. They also like to cuddle. They have a generally good temperament, just need to warm up sometimes. It’s nothing that a treat and some sniffing out could not fix though.

Some of the beagle’s I’ve met have been a little slow to warm up to strangers, but are overall super loving, adventurous pups! With a keen sense of smell, beagles love sniffing about on each and every walk, which often helps keep them active. They are generally good family-dogs, enjoying plenty of attention, healthy snacks, and active walks. Beagles are a very loyal dog breed and overall love people – in my experience, almost more than other dogs! They can be quite food-motivated, making them pretty trainable. They do well in homes and apartments, always given a healthy diet and exercise. Beagles love their sleep almost as much as they love attention and are a very sweet breed. As a walker, I’ve never had any bad experiences with beagles and would say that they do well with walkers, maybe even preferring a regular person to interchangeable walkers…maybe due to their loyalty? Definitely a fantastic breed to have.

I have walked several Beagles and I grew up with a Beagle named Brutus. My post will focus on my walk with Baxter who is a pure bred Beagle. Brutus, the Beagle I grew up with, was a "text book" typical Beagle. Brutus was very friendly, smart, stubborn, and extremely food motivated. On walks Brutus would bark and chase cats, rabbits, birds etc. Baxter was much more mellow than my dog Brutus. Baxter loved to sniff and explore like most Beagles do. Baxter would eat poop left on the ground. Baxter did not bark at other animals on the walk. Baxter was friendly and very mellow. Baxter liked to walk, and he would keep a good pace. He did well on the leash and would not pull most of the time. He responded to “heal” or “slow down”. Brutus would listen to basic commands but you had to be firm.

When I rang the doorbell, Murphy started singing his beagle howl. He sniffed me all over when I entered and loved being pet. Once on the walk, he kept his nose on the ground and became stubborn if we were not walking the way he wanted to sniff. When we saw other dogs and people, he would howl his signature howl to let everyone know he was there. When he wasn’t sniffing the ground, he was a fast-paced, energetic walker—despite his full belly. When we arrived back home, he sat pretty for his grandma and I for some chips (the dog treats were hiding somewhere). Overall, he was very well-behaved, listened to commands and loved to play. He also enjoyed putting his front paws on my legs so he could be closer to my face—his way of giving me a hug.

Beagles are great to walk, buy you have to be patient. They are excellent hunters and loyal companions, but the hunter in them can make the walk a challenge. Beagles love to follow their noses, which can sometimes get them into sticky situations. They love to track things, so if they get a scent, they may want to keep on it, whether that is where you intended to go or not. They are also happy-go-lucky, funny, and—thanks to their pleading expression—cute. The ones I have walked loved to visit with other dogs when out and about, so I tend to ask if the owner if it is OK with them to socialize the dog, because the Beagle will want to. These dogs are solid, sturdy, but they do need to run around and let off steam, so if they have been inside for a while be ready for a fast pace walk.

This beagle in particular was more difficult than most, but I find that most beagles tend to be incredibly energetic and easily excited. This one definitely has some sensory issues that cause him to get incredibly nervous, but working with him for the amount of time that I did, I noticed that he got more at ease with me and his surroundings. I'm sure it helped that I always walked him on the same, predictable path. And as most hounds, he looooves to sniff everything

Only been around a couple of Beagles. This particular one wanted to sniff everything and was a little stubborn which I believe can be in there nature. Surprisingly though he wasn't a talker and never once barked. He was playful and sweet. Great dog!

We have five beagles total, out of the five he is probably the laziest and most laid back. But he loves to go outside and run about, and he hates being ignored to the point that if I'm doing work on my laptop he will place his back paws on the back so it closes, or he will move to stand on the keyboard. He is also really stubborn, and when he's mad at you he will he ignore you.
