Beagles shed their fur throughout the year. They can be simple to groom and may require very little professional grooming to remain in good condition. Brushing them twice a week and bathing them 3 to 4 times a year could suffice.
Take special care of their ears. Long and floppy, they’re prone to infections, which means weekly ear care can be beneficial. Ask your vet for practical information on this matter.
Beagles can be high energy dogs. As a puppy, try playing with them every day alongside short walks (to protect their growing bodies). In adulthood, your Beagle should get a minimum of 1 hour exercise per day. From hunting to hiking, they’ll be in their element in the outdoors.
Beagles love their food. So much so, in fact, that they can be susceptible to obesity. As a result, it’s important to pay attention to their portion sizes. Your vet will be able to advise on the best food type and quantity for this breed.
