About the beagle dog breed

Beagles were originally bred in England as working dogs to hunt rabbits and hares and are now one the most popular breeds worldwide.

Hunting dogs by nature, beagles have a great sense of smell and love to follow their noses and sniff, which can make training difficult.

Beagles are curious and playful with an even temperament but require a lot of exercise and daily walks.

Beagles are among the healthiest dog breeds and make great companions and family pets. They also shed moderately and require little grooming.

They are food driven and require a lot of supervision around food as they are prone to obesity.

The AKC recognized the beagle breed in 1885, and is currently one of the most popular dog breeds in the United States.

Breed standard

There are two types of Beagles: those standing under 13 inches and those between 13 and 15 inches. Both types are sturdy, solid, and ‘big for their inches.’ They come in pleasing colors like lemon, red and white, and tricolor.

The floppy ears and coat colors can vary depending on the type of Beagle. The black and tan variety is the most common, but they also come in other colors like lemon, red and white, and tricolor.

Beagle puppy mills

Unfortunately, many puppy mills are posing as reputable breeders. These operations mass-produce puppies to make a profit without regard for the health or welfare of the dogs.

Puppies from puppy mills are likelier to be sick and have behavior problems.

To avoid inadvertently supporting a puppy mill, visit the breeder’s facility and meet the puppies’ parents before making a purchase.

Reputable breeders will have no problem with this, but puppy mills will often try to make excuses or refuse.

Signs of a puppy mill include:

  • The breeder has many different breeds of dogs.
  • The breeding dogs are kept in cramped, unsanitary conditions.
  • The puppies seem sick or have behavior problems.
  • The breeder is not willing to let you meet the puppies’ parents.
  • The puppies are advertised for sale online or in newspaper ads.

When adopting from a rescue organization or shelter, you can be sure that you are not supporting a puppy mill.

Adopting a beagle from a rescue organization or shelter is cheaper than buying from a breeder, and you’ll be giving a loving home to a dog in need.

Backyard breeders

Backyard breeders are individuals who breed dogs without any intention of improving the health or quality of the breed.

They often do not have the knowledge or experience to properly care for the dams and sires or produce healthy puppies.

Puppies from backyard breeders are likely to be sick and have behavior problems.

To avoid accidentally supporting a backyard breeder, visit the breeder’s facility and meet the puppies’ parents before making a purchase.

Reputable breeders will have no problem with this, but backyard breeders will often try to make excuses or refuse.

If the breeder does not allow you to meet the parents or visit the facility, do not buy a puppy from them.

Signs of a backyard breeder include:

  • The puppies are not kept in clean, sanitary conditions.
  • The breeder cannot or will not show you the puppy’s parents.
  • The breeder does not ask you any questions about your home or lifestyle.
  • The breeder has many different types of dogs for sale.
  • The breeder does not provide health records or guarantees.
  • Puppies are sold before they are 8 weeks old.

Avoid backyard breeders at all costs to ensure you get a healthy puppy.

Preparing for a new puppy

Before bringing your new puppy home, it is important to prepare.

You will need to purchase food and supplies, set up a safe space for the puppy, and beagle-proof your home.

Read our in-depth post about preparing to bring your beagle puppy home.

What to expect with a beagle puppy

Beagle puppies are full of energy and love to play.

They are also very curious and may get into trouble if not supervised.

Expect your beagle puppy to chew on everything, including furniture and shoes.

Housebreaking a beagle puppy can also be challenging, as they are notorious for being stubborn.

With patience and consistent training, your beagle puppy will eventually learn the rules of the house.

Crate training is often recommended with beagle puppies, as it can help with housebreaking and prevent chewing and other destructive behaviors.

Obedience training is also important, as beagles can be stubborn and difficult to train.

Beagle puppies should start obedience training as soon as possible.

Leash training may also be necessary, as beagles have a strong hunting instinct and may try to chase after small animals.

Beagle barking and howling can also be a problem, so training your puppy not to bark excessively is important.

Exercise needs

Beagles are a high-energy breed, so they need plenty of exercise. Like all puppies, exercise should be done gradually to avoid injury.

Beagle puppies under 4 months old should only be exercised for 5-10 minutes at a time.

As they get older, you can gradually increase their exercise time.

Adult beagles need at least 30 minutes of exercise daily, and more is better.

Beagles love to play, so interactive toys and games are a great way to keep them entertained and exercised.

Puppy proofing your home

Before bringing your new puppy home, it is important to dog-proof your house.

This means removing anything that could be harmful or dangerous to the puppy, including small objects they could choke on and toxic plants.

It is crucial to ensure your garden space is secure, as beagles are notorious escape artists and may try to jump over or dig under fences.

You should also remove any potential hazards from your home, such as loose wires, cleaning products, and medications.

FAQs

Summary

If you’re looking for a beagle puppy for sale, it’s important to do your research and find a reputable breeder. Be prepared to research the breed, as beagles can be challenging to train. Beagle puppies need plenty of exercise and should not be left alone for long periods of time. Finally, ensure your home is puppy-proofed before bringing your new dog home.

Most of all, enjoy your new furry friend! Beagles are full of energy and love to play, and with proper care and training, they make wonderful lifelong companions.
