Interesting facts about beagle dogs

 It's hard to resist the allure of a beagle's dark brown or hazel eyes, alongside their soft, pleading expression. They are cheerful, outgoing, and affectionate - traits that are quite offset by their inquisitive, determined, and food-focused dog nature.

Interesting facts about beagle dogs

Three different sounds are produced - bark / growl, bay howl, and half-bell howl (a cross between raging bark and bay). The pronunciation of a half howl is usually reserved as soon as you see the quarry - or they think it's time, you usually get along well with other animals and their human friends - and most of them are their new allies.

The most important thing to know about the Beagle is that he is a scenthound. His nose is the most important vital part of his anatomy, and his head is typically down to the bottom of the ground to find an interesting trail to follow. Beagles have about 220 million scent receptors compared to the paltry 5 million that humans have, making them excellent scenters. 

You may have seen a beagle's nose in action at airports across the country. In 1984, the U.S. Department of Agriculture used beagles to sniff out contraband food being used at airports.

the Beagles did not intimidate people who were afraid of dogs, and with their super-nose power, they could be trained to identify specific foods while avoiding people who were not contraband. Today, members of the "beagle brigade" patrol the baggage claim areas of just over 20 international airports and other entrances to us.

Because they are small and have subtle temperaments, beagles can have the easiest of homes if their co-workers are willing to meticulously direct them to the areas several times a day. They need plenty of exercise, about an hour a day if possible. If Beagles are left alone without exercise, they can also be devastating.
