The Beagle puppy in this video is learning to howl. And who is the teacher? A human! The video did not go into details if the puppy is the only dog in the house, and if that’s why the man is teaching his pup to howl. Beagles have a unique howl. If there is no mama Beagle around, I wonder if the puppy would instinctively howl at some point, even without human interference.
Beagles are happiest when they can use their nose. According to Vetstreet, Beagles have been referred to as “a nose with four legs”. Airports use them to sniff out illegal items because of their nose talent and because they are friendly dogs. Passengers would not tense up with a Beagle sniffing their luggage as they would a large police dog.
What are Beagles like?
Vetstreet recommends that those considering a Beagle know 2 things about Beagles before getting one–they will follow a scent, and they love food. What this translates to is that if your Beagle smells something interesting, they’ll ignore you calling them to come back. They don’t care if there is a busy street with cars, or if the scent is coming from 10 miles away. When they smell something interesting to them, their nose is the voice they listen to. A fenced yard is definitely a necessity.
As for the love of food, that means you have to put away any scent of food, including trash cans. They are creative about accessing food. This also means you can use food as a training motivator.
Beagles are a great companion for families with children, people who are active outdoors, and those who like to take slow walks, which gives Beagles plenty of time to sniff around.
