There are a lot of owners who wish to inquire about the nature of the Beagle(and Beagle puppies ), especially before taking one in their life.
It is a wise decision, wanting to know very specific social traits of a race because it is said that they are compatible with all human personalities. 🙂
When I try to define the character of the Beagle (and Beagle puppies), you must consider that each dog is different from others. It is a unique individual and has a personal mindset, a mind full of so many nuances that make it, and rightly so, valuable in the bond that will ultimately be formed with the owner.
If we think that today, different bloodlines are bred, each with a particular aspect of the character (as mentioned in the post, “The predatory instincts of the Beagle,” it becomes more complicated to draw a profile as a possible universal temperament of this dog.
“Behavior and Character: The Beagle is a merry hound whose essential function is to hunt, primarily hare, by following a scent trail. Beagles are bold, very active, and capable of great endurance with great determination. They are also alert, intelligent and embody a temperament suitable to these features: Amiable and alert, showing no aggression or shyness. ”
It’s hard to find more effective words for Beagle puppies. 🙂
In fact (and this can be confirmed by the vast majority of people who are already living with a beagle), it is immediately evident that with a dog like this, when they are playful he/she never misses an opportunity to lash out in some funny skit. Playful behavior is important to relate and establish communication with them (it is to remember because it is up to us to educate).
Also, a beagle’s nature is mild. In everyday life, it is very rare to have moments of real aggression. These rare occasions only seem to occur in situations that arouse the puppy’s ancient hunting instincts (for example, if he/she encounters a squirrel, a hedgehog, or sometimes even a bunny domestic). It is in these cases when they will they show all of their tenacity and powerful resistance.
For these qualities, beagles were was saddled with the label of being “stubborn.” But we must not forget that it is one of the most important qualities for a hunting dog like them!
If properly socialized, a beagle will also be very willing to accept the proposals of others (both people and dogs). This is because the beagle, always to the fact that he/she is a born hunter, is excellent at working in pairs or a pack.
For someone spending daily life with their dog, this could be seen as a failure, because the beagle doesn’t usually scruple to take pampering / compliments / tidbits from strangers. However, by living together, you will soon understand that the bond developed with the owners is much deeper.
In truth, the beagle is for many, but not for all.
But the beagle is able to be loved by many, and they will find fertile ground to give and get the unforgettable experience for all those who appreciate the dogs and the life they seek: warmth, fun, sweetness, and love without ulterior motives.
Those who use their dog as an accessory to show off are likely to feel uncomfortable in front of the honest friendship and carefree character that the beagle is led to building. So, for those who keep dogs in designer handbags or boast of his bloody beast, the beagle is not the right choice.
One last note.
“DEFECTS involving DISQUALIFICATION. Overly aggressive or fearful…
Any dog clearly showing physical or behavioral abnormalities shall be disqualified. “
What does this mean?
Even at the official level, it is recognized that for a beagle to be truly such, it is important that they are balanced, non-aggressive, nor too distrustful of the world that surrounds them, and should not have, among other things, problems of behavior.
All things are closely related to their well-being: creating a good relationship with those who live with him/her, socializing, fun, fair, and regular and daily satisfaction of its fundamental needs.
In short, “the chickens are coming home to roost,” and even at the official level, there is no place for those who do not mind building the best physical and psychological conditions of life with your beagle.
