You have many choices when looking for a new family pet. Much depends on your family situation as well as housing concerns. If you are looking for a new pet, how about a beagle?
If you have a young family, then a beagle may be the best choice for a pet. They are such great family forever pets.
Here’s what you need to know about beagles:
- They are fun. Beagles are one of the best dogs for kids because they are fun to have. They have plenty of energy so they will be able to keep even with the most active child. They will keep on playing and running for as long as you do. Nothing makes a beagle happier than having playtime with you or your family. The beagle is a happy dog and the happiness is very contagious. You will take a look at your beagle’s face and know that they are having a great time.
Beagles will not necessarily play fetch, but they will enjoy every moment that you spend with them. They are just a great companion dog.
- They howl. So, the beagle’s howl may not be the perfect apartment dog. Your neighbors may not really enjoy the howl, but if you have a house then the howl can be very funny. There are different loud noises which you could hear from a beagle. The first one is the one when the beagle catches a scent.
The howl is very easy to recognize and this will happen when you are out for a walk or if you are using the beagle to hung. The second howl is the play howl. When you play with your beagle their howl may be a way to communicate with you. Finally, there is the anxiety how which can happen when left alone (separation anxiety) or confronted with a stressful situation.
- Not a guard dog. If you want a guard dog, then you can forget about the beagle. While the beagle may bark or howl when a stranger approaches, anyone can win the heart of the beagle especially if they have some sort of treat for them. They are extremely friendly and will fall in love with all friends that you bring into the house. There rarely will be any aggression in a beagle’s character, even when they are trained for hunting.
- Low maintenance. The beagle is a very low maintenance dog. They have no disease or structural problems which they are prone to and that means that you can expect them to live a long healthy life. They also do not need much grooming thanks to their short coat. You do need to take care of their ears, and never let them off the leash outside unless they are will trained. If they catch an unusual scent, then you will have a hard time stopping them. That can put them in danger so exercise caution. Beagles want to be with their humans. They are not dogs that can be left in the backyard for hours. They need plenty of attention and will let you know if you do not supply it.
Soft floppy ears, brown soulful eyes, a heart that is full of love and loyalty for their fur-family and a nose for food. What kind of animal does that describe? Why, a beagle, of course.
Hope that you are a lucky Pet Partner of a Beagle. You will have a best friend for many years to come.
