About the Breed:
Beagles are high-energy, carefree, optimistic dogs with a sometimes charming stubborn streak. These fearless hounds are well-suited to both hunting and companionship, though strict obedience training is an absolute necessity. Without it, Beagles can be become unruly and defiant due to their strong-willed nature.
Beagles have short, water-resistant coats with a moderate to high rate of shedding. Routine basic grooming is all that is typically necessary to keep Beagles looking their best.
Beagles can be wonderful companions and great family dogs when properly trained and socialized. Though they may sometimes act lazy on the surface, Beagles have loads of energy and need regular exercise to expend it. Otherwise, the buildup of energy may release that mischievous nature inside.
