Yes I am a first time beagle owner....I started with one and then got another within a year. I will not forget meeting a man outside one of the big name pet stores, "Oh beagles, beautiful dogs...it will take them 4 years to understand what you're trying to train them" So true, I've had my babies for 4 years now...and now they understand (with lots of help with treats). Patience with these lovable goofballs goes a long way. Don't give up on your little hound described as "a nose with 4 feet", they are worth it!

I've been a beagle owner for most of my life and I have had some of the best and worse experiences with my dogs. My first beagle was Penny I got her from a shelter. She was an older beagle, very loveable but still got into mischief. I didn't have her for long though because she died of cancer just when I was really starting to know her. However, Penny secured my love for the bred. I got PJ when she was six weeks old. PJ is truly a beagle. I've dealt with puppy hood trauma, PJ dug up a whole crepe myrtle and is a natural hunter. To this day she still manages to catch the occasional critter in the back yard. To anyone thinking about getting a beagle, I would say you have to have a lot of time on your hands. Beagles get into trouble regardless of what setting and what age (PJ is fully trained and is now ten years old, but she still managed to somehow get into a stash of Valentine chocolate this year(luckily we got her to the vet in time)). Also, you need to learn to love a lot of noise because beagles really do love to bark. One final word, if you do get your beagle from a beagle ask about various health problems epilepsy runs through the breed as well as various other diseases. PJ, for instance, inherited her father's sensitive skin and last year had to have a cancerous tumor removed because of too much exposure to the sun. Other than that though, beagles really are a great breed to grow up or old with.

Yes! I love my Beagle as much as my boy and two grandaughters. He is well behaved, (because he took classes.)He goes to Doggy Day Care and they tell me he is the most well behaved beagle they have ever seen. Only barks when he is out in the yard with the rabbits and deer. And no I don't have a fence. He knows where home is. I keep him in the house 95% of the time. But when I am outside, he is outside with me. I've been told I'm lucky, not a lot of beagles out there like Theo. So for my second puppy...I got a Cavilier King Charles. Some jealsousy, but Theo is getting used to him, and he does watch out for the little guy!

I must be a beagle person because I have three beagles, all adopted from the SPCA. I wonder if the preference is genetic because my grandfather raised beagles and I didn't know that fact until after I adopted my first beagle. Beagles are such happy dogs and they make me laugh.
