Pocket Beagle are merry and fun loving, but they’re still hounds and as such require patience and creative training techniques to overcome their stubborn nature.
In the 13th century, nobles hunted with packs of tiny Beagles also known as “glove Beagles” because their fit in the palm of a heavy leather hunting glove, they were eventually replaced by the 13 inch and 15-inch Beagles we know today. Being pack dogs, they generally get along well with other animals and their human friends and are inclined to think everyone is their new best friend.
An essential thing to know about any size Beagle is that he is a scenthound. Pocket Beagle nose is the most important part of his anatomy, and his head is always down to the ground, searching for an interesting trail to follow.
All Pocket Beagles of any size need frequent daily walks or active play periods. Expect to give a pocket Beagle at least an hour of exercise daily. And be warned that this isn’t a breed that walks briskly. Beagles mosey, nose to the ground, sniffing out everything around them.
