Known for their great hunting skills and loyal companionship, Beagles are happy-go-lucky dogs with a lot to offer in their smaller size. With smooth, dense double coats that get heavier in the winter, you can expect them to shed like crazy in the spring and moderately throughout the rest of the year. It’s a good idea to brush them weekly with a medium bristle brush, a hound glove, a rubber grooming mitt, or a tool to remove the loose hair on them. This brushing will also help to promote new hair growth as well. Since Beagles are pack animals, they do well with human compatibility or with another canine. They are escape artists, so make sure they are in a fenced area with a height of at least 5 feet tall, with lots of space to run around, because they also need lots of exercise to run.
