About the Beagle
When socialised and exercised well Beagles are good with other pets and children. However, it is important to remember that Beagles were initially bred as hunting dogs and they can easily become distracted when out on walks. This makes Beagles one of the more difficult dog breeds to train.

Origin of the breed
Beagles have been bred in Europe for centuries. During the reigns of King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I there were wire-haired Beagles, some of which were small enough to be carried in the pocket of a hunting jacket. Size has increased over the years but smaller versions of the breed, called “Pocket Beagles”, can still sometimes be seen.
