FACTS & MYTHS
Beagles should be kept in outdoor enclosures or pens.
Beagles enjoy the fresh air and should receive plenty of exercise through routine walks on a leash or in a fenced area. It is inhumane to keep a dog confined to a small enclosure for long periods of time.
Beagles are dirty and have a distinctive smell.
Any dog that does not receive proper bathing and grooming will emit an unpleasant smell. Well cared for beagles are clean and smell no different than other house dogs.
Beagles aren’t meant to be pets and can’t be housetrained.
Beagles are one of the most affectionate and loyal of all dog breeds, making them great pets. Though beagles can be stubborn, they are eager to learn and only need a consistent routine and plenty of praise.
Beagles are only for hunting.
Beagles have a strong scent drive and have been used for hunting historically, however, they are wonderful family pets who thrive when living inside with a loving family. In fact, Beagles have become extremely popular show dogs and house pet in recent years.
