beagles arent good pets if you want to have a pet that can be offleash during walks.. since they like to hunt they will chase everything and they howl! oh noisy little buggers if you dont train them well

Angry beagles do make good pets

Again we dismiss a dog with the breed! Pardon my anger but Beagles are wonderful pets, loving loyal affectionate, and mine does listen better than my child. Like any dog, proper training is involved and the amount of time you put into a pet reflects its behavior. Some dogs are harder to train which may be attributed to over breeding, the sex of the dog, the age (yes you can teach an old dog new tricks), and its temperment. If a dog had a mild temperment it would be easier than one with an agressive/dominant one. So in conclusion Beagles make wonderful pets however like any dog they require training to help them fit into the owners lifestyle.

No No No. I didnt mean they werent great pets. But i meant they tend to wander offleash if they arent properly trained. So if youre going to train them well then they are just as good as any other dog. I know its the owner not that dog that causes dogs to have bad behaviour. This post is really old anyway.
