Here's a fun game - howl at your beagle and watch him howl back. Continue to see who howls the loudest, or until the neighbours go crazy. Beagles are loved across India for their affection and jolly personality. They're most often remembered for their on-screen character, Snoopy, who stole the hearts of both children and their parents. At a time when The Snoopy Show was playing in almost every household, the industry witnessed a surge in the number of beagles finding homes. Unfortunately, however, many people underestimated a Beagle's needs and took the breed for what they saw on TV. As a result, many Beagles were either abandoned or given up for adoption.

So, before you decide to get a Beagle, here's a sneak peek into what it's like to raise a dog that would rather howl than bark to get its way.

Originally bred to help flush out game, Beagles would sniff out prey from miles away. Whether their prey lived in burrows like rabbits or on trees like the grouse and squirrel, a Beagle's nose was no match for these hiders. The word 'Beagle' is derived from the french word 'be’geule' - symbolic of the sound that the Beagle would make to alert the hunter that they've sniffed out prey.

The Beagle we knew then was a lean sniffing machine. But, the Beagle we know today is almost always suffering from obesity and its deadly consequences. Why? Because of an imbalanced high-calorie diet and a lack of physical and mental exercise. Beagle dog food must consist of high-quality ingredients that are low in calories, offer long-lasting satiety, and meet all nutritional needs.

Feeding them food that is high in carbohydrates, unhealthy fillers, and table scraps causes unnecessary weight gain and its subsequent problems. As much as we are tempted to feed those irresistible puppy eyes tasty treats, we must ensure that it doesn't exceed more than 10% of their daily dietary intake. It might also be beneficial to draw up a beagle food chart with your veterinarian.

When it comes to Beagles, brushing, bathing, and ear cleaning, take the driver's seat. Beagles shed twice a year - in winter and in spring. During shedding season, they require daily brushing and de-shedding.

Contrarily, during the non-shedding season, Beagles can make do with a bi-weekly brushing and weekly de-shedding. In addition to this, weekly ear cleans, and teeth brushing are a must to prevent infections and gingivitis. 

Beagles are energetic bundles of energy, and when that energy isn't used well, it is stored as fat. Beagles need a minimum of three to four hours of aerobic exercise every day. This can be in the form of fetch, running, brisk walking, swimming, scent work, agility, hiking, flyball...the list goes on. In short, there's nothing you can't do with a Beagle.

A lack of physical exercise causes boredom and boredom-based destructive behaviour such as chewing, mouthing, biting, constant howling, and pacing. In addition to physical exercise, these smart hounds need something to work on during the day. Now, what would you prefer - a puzzle toy with a productive outcome or the leg of a sofa with a not-so productive outcome? When it comes to training, Beagles are easy-to-train and always willing to earn. They enjoy obedience training when it involves games as opposed to commands.
