How Is It Grooming a Beagle
These puppies have a dense double coat which becomes thicker during the winter season. Shedding will occur with this breed, so to help against finding stray hairs around the house weekly brushing is necessary. A simple rubber grooming mitt or hound glove will help remove the loose hairs from the coat. Bath time shouldn’t be too frequent, once a month should be sufficient for the breed.
Exercising This a Beagle Puppy
Beagles are a high energy dog, so daily exercise should be worked into your daily routine. Because these dogs are pack animals it means that exercise time isn’t something they will do solo. They enjoy the company of others during playtime, so just leaving them in a fenced-in yard won’t be enough. This practice could actually lead to some unwanted behavior from your Beagle. Now if they do have a canine companion they will be ok frolicking with their buddy. Beagles are also masters of escaping, so if you do plan to leave them off-leash and unsupervised be sure the area is fenced in well and any and all holes and gaps are filled. This is also a breed that should not be off-leash no matter how well “trained” the pup is. Beagle puppies are have a natural instinct for hunting, so scent hounds it will be difficult for them to resist not pursing interesting scents.
Training A Beagle Puppy
Training a Beagle puppy should come with fair ease, especially if there is an older pup in the house. They are quite intelligent and pick up on what is “ good behavior.” If not early socialization, like with any dog is recommended. As for harsh techniques it is always advised against, Beagle respond better to positive reinforcement and patience.
