A scenthound like a Beagle requires a fenced-in backyard. When you are outside, your Beagle should be safely confined and under your supervision or on a lead in open spaces. He is a wanderer by nature, so make sure he is microchipped and wearing identification tags on his collar so you can find him if he flees, which happens frequently to Beagles.
Beagles, like all dogs, gain from obedience training. Because Beagles just shut down when treated severely, positive reinforcement tactics are preferable. Teenage Beagles have a lot of energy and require numerous opportunities to burn it off. They'll enjoy running alongside you, but don't introduce them to an activity like this until they are at least 18 months old.
Beagles are kind, affectionate, and humorous. When they're not making you cry due to their frequently impolite behaviour, they'll make you chuckle. Beagle owners frequently turn to food rewards to tempt their dogs into a condition of temporary loyalty because they spend so much time attempting to outsmart their dogs.
The Beagle, like all dogs, need early socialisation, or being exposed to a wide variety of people, sights, noises, and experiences, when they are young. Your Beagle puppy's development into a well-rounded canine is facilitated through socialisation.
Long before the arrival of the Roman soldiers in England in 55 B.C., there are tales of small pack-hounds being used to hunt rabbit and hare. Understanding the Beagle's widespread attraction to hunters in England, Europe, and North America requires an understanding of the term "foot hound." The Beagle could be chased without a horse, unlike larger pack hunters like foxhounds or Harriers.
In the years following the Civil War, beagle imports started to arrive in America, and American rabbit hunters quickly took to them. Blunder, the first Beagle that the AKC registered, was born in 1885. In the wooded regions of North America today, "beaglers" still extol the virtues of their breed's keen sense of smell, melodious voice, and eager approach to rabbit hunting.
Importance of KCI
Also known as the Kennel Club of India, KCI is a professional body that maintains strict standards across various breeds of dogs across India. All KCI registered dogs come with a KCI registration certificate from the breeder, ensuring their pedigree. KCI representative may also visit the breeder at the time of whelping to ensure maintenance of breed standards.
As the only reputed governing body of dog breed standards, we always recommend getting a dog that has been registered through this organization in order to have clarity regarding their origin.
This does, however not ensure the conditions the pup was reared in or in what manner their parents might have been treated. This concern is what brings us to our next point: AWBI Certification
How can you make a difference?
Ensure that you only work with AWBI registered breeders, and if you're looking for a purebred dog try to find one that is KCI registered. By forcing the breeders to obtain a license, we may finally put an end to puppy mills and unethical breeding practices.
The Animal Welfare Board of India requires that any individual selling any living dog must be registered with the animal welfare state board of their jurisdiction. In not doing so, both the buyer and seller are committing a crime.
Since this amendment was passed, it became illegal to buy / sell dogs without the breeder being the valid, original holder of an AWBI license. Apart from this judicial responsibility, AWBI also has strict guidelines regarding the conditions that the dogs must be kept in and the treatment provided to them. These guidelines make sure breeders follow responsible breeding practices Due to these reasons, we strictly work only with AWBI registered breeders, and implore you to do the same.
