Beagles are widely used in law enforcement. These dogs are excellent at searching for drugs and illegal items in luggage.
The Beagle is instantly captivating because of its great charm. Its hazel eyes stare straight into your soul, especially when it’s intent on begging you for a tidbit. The dogs’ charming look harmonizes perfectly with their character, so don’t expect the Beagle to be meek and calm. Despite having moderately short legs, they can be quick to chase after a pigeon or a neighbor’s cat. Beagles are very active by nature. There’s no better activity for this breed than a walk in a city park. Grab a Frisbee or a tennis ball and you’ll make them forever happy. They are often used in labs for research on drugs, cosmetics, and detergents. Beagles are often kidnapped from their owners in order to sell them to research facilities.
Beagles love to bark, whether there is a reason for it or not. It’s worth considering this when planning to keep a dog in an apartment building.
In order to avoid difficulties with hygiene procedures, these dogs should be accustomed to them from an early age.
You shouldn’t dry their coat with a hair dryer.
When planning your Beagle’s diet, take their level of physical activity into account. If your pet starts gaining excess weight, the food portion should be reduced by 10%.
