Descriptions of the Beagle include: even temperament, bold and merry hound, alert and intelligent, fun-loving. These characteristics make them ideal family pets as well as robust companions for more active lifestyles. They are very sociable with children, other dogs, and adults.
However, Beagles are scent hounds who have retained their hunting instincts and origins so they can be independent and stubborn when tracking and following scents. This may mean your Beagle will ignore your call to return and cannot be relied upon to be 100% obedient. Walking your beagle on a lead at all times may be the consequence of this highly developed scent drive.
Beagles respond well to regular, consistent and patient training of short duration. Their intelligence and willingness to please you means you can teach your Beagle to have good manners and to fit in well with you and your family.
