The Beaglier is a designer dog breed. This dog breed is the offspring of a Beagle and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. The Beaglier was developed in Australia during the 1990s. Breeders of the dog hybrid wanted to create an easy going, energetic small dog, which had less of a hunting instinct and scent drive than the Beagle did. The addition of the Spaniel traits brought some nice personality into the mix, making it an excellent family dog. The Beaglier is a small to medium dog who is playful, affectionate and gentle. A bit of grooming is involved with this dog hybrid; their wavy coat needs to be brushed and combed several times per week.

Beaglier Breed History

The Beaglier was developed in Australia in the 1990’s.  Dog breeders wanted to combine the Beagle and the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel to produce a fun-loving, great temperament dog, which was not scent driven and would have less inherited genetic conditions. 

This dog breed has become popular in the United Kingdom.  They are a fairly modern dog breed therefore, there is not a lot of documented history on them.  However, there is a lot of historical information on the Beagle and on the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. 


The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel originated in England and was a companion pet. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel was named by King Charles I of Britain in the 1600s. Only royalty and aristocrats kept the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel as companions. King Charles II was so fond of the dog breed he wrote a decree that allowed the King Charles Spaniel in any public place, which included the House of Parliament. 

As time went on, the dog breed was crossbred and their appearance was altered.  The muzzle was shorter, the face flat, skull domed and the ears low set.  The original appearance of the King Charles Spaniel became almost extinct. An American by the name of Roswell Eldridge began the ball rolling to return the King Charles Spaniel to their original appearance in 1926.  He wanted them to look like the painting “The Cavalier Pets”, painted in 1845 by Sir Edwin Landseer. Mr. Eldridge offered cash prizes for dogs that looked like King Charles II’s companions. In 1928 a dog owned by Miss Mostyn Walker, was awarded the prize. The dog’s name was Ann’s Son and he would help return the dog breed to their original look.  

This dog breed was officially recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1995. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel has made wonderful and loving pets to celebrities such as Frank Sinatra, Diane Sawyer, Courtney Cox, Liv Tyler and President Ronald Reagan. Beagle-type dogs have existed for over 2,500 years. The modern breed originated in Great Britain around the 1800s. They were bred to track hares. The dog breed is known as a scent hound. A scent hound depends on their sense of smell during a hunt and not their sight. Originally, they were much smaller than the Beagle of today. They could fit in a pocket.  Hunters depended on a pack of beagles for the hunt. 

Beagles were imported into United States in the 1860s. The Beagle was accepted as a dog breed by the American Kennel Club in 1885. As of 2017, the American Kennel Club ranks the Beagle in the top ten of popular dog breeds. The Beaglier is recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club, Designer Breed Registry, Dog Registry of America and the Designer Dogs Kennel Club.

Beaglier Breed Appearance

The Beaglier will have characteristics from both parents.  The Beaglier can range from small to medium in size. His coat is usually short and wavy although there are Beagliers that have longer coats, which resemble the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. They are most often tri-color. Yours will probably have large, dark and expressive eyes, most often thought of as one of the endearing features of the parent, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Looking very Beagle-like, the dog ears adorning the head will be soft and floppy. The muzzle may be shorter than the Beagle’s.

Beaglier Breed Maintenance

If the Beaglier has a short coat it will need to be brushed several times a week and longer coats may require daily brushing in order to keep ahead of mats and tangles. Bathing can be done monthly if needed. Their floppy ears will need to be examined and cleaned on a weekly basis.

Great care should be taken though, to not allow moisture to accumulate in the ear as yeast and bacteria can easily form in that environment. To prevent tartar, his teeth should be brushed twice a week as buildup can lead to periodontal disease. Making the grooming process a part of your bonding time with your Beaglier will help him to sit still and maybe even enjoy the attention as he matures.

Beaglier Temperament

The Beaglier is easy going, loving and affectionate.  It is an intelligent breed and known to be responsive to training. They are good with children and other pets.  Small children and unfamiliar dogs should always be supervised when interacting with your Beaglier to help prevent injury to the dog or child.

The Beaglier does not like being left for extended periods of time and may suffer from separation anxiety.  He is happiest when he is spending time with his family.  Because of his “hunting instinct” he may not be good with cats or small animals like gerbils, rabbits and mice.  The Beaglier makes a good watchdog and will alert his family to any unfamiliar noise. His distinctive bark, if not contained, may be problematic in an apartment situation.

Beaglier Activity Requirements

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is not a high-energy dog but the Beagle is. The Beaglier will require regular daily dog walks and play.  This hybrid will flourish in a home with an expansive yard in which to explore. The Beagle in your hybrid may cause your Beaglier to want to be on the trail of a scent at all times so be certain your yard is safe and secure. Don't leave him unattended as he may decide to dig his way out for a chase. A walk about the neighborhood to sniff the smells and greet the neighbors is a good way to socialize your Beaglier and give him the outing he needs to be content and fulfilled.

She can be very cheeky but she loves being around people and will bark at strangers, she loves our older dog and always wants to be near him, though she likes to chew and get into everything, she's very smart as she figured out how to open child safety gate which was put in place to keep her in one area of the house, though because she is very smart she overthinks some social situations with other dogs and is quite timid.

He is a fast energetic little guy, but after a while of running he goes right to sleep. He has a super sweet personality and loves family time. He eats EVERYTHING... he has done some funny stuff like chasing his tail and running around like crazy!

AWW SHE'S THE SWEETEST THING EVER, etc. From every other dog owner we have come to know from our walks. There is another 4 year old Beaglier in my neighborhood, she's very friendly but much less excitable and well behaved than my 5 month pup. Mili is afraid of baths, getting her trust to allow me to bathe her has been somewhat difficult,she does enjoy being brushed and chewing on another one. Super loving and caring, My Vet says that she's extremely healthy. She's a super girl in almost every way.. however this breed is very intelligent,good and bad, she knows what the request is, and will simply say, "yeah yeah, if I feel like it" , so short daily training is A MUST, never scold or hit her, only ignore or time outs. She needs alot of attention and excercise. Will reward you with undying loyalty and love!

Question

I am looking to get a young dog or puppy soon.. I am wondering what breeds might be best for me! I am very big on each dog's individual personality, but I also understand breed plays an important role. I am looking for a small to medium dog. I like activity, but I also love little dogs that don't always like to be outside for long periods of time or can't handle runs I love them just as much. I am looking for a more Velcro personality and a dog that would stay calm when I am sad or upset. I also would love a dog that gets along with other animals with training. Dogs, cats, and rabbits.

Hi. I’m looking to buy a Beaglier however i live in a one bed apartment. I’ve seen differing information online as the whether a Beaglier is a good fit. I live next to a huge field and would be able to ensure the dog had regular exercise and I also work from home. However I am concerned that not having a huge living space or private outdoor area would be detrimental to the dogs wellbeing- are you able to advise?
