A Beaglier is a hybrid breed, making them a crossbreed between a Beagle and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. These dogs are compact in size and are known to be active and energetic. They are also loyal to their owners and their families.

The Beaglier puppies are known to inherit some of the best qualities of both their parents. These dogs are adorable and will instantly add happiness to your house. If you are looking for a fun-spirited pet, this might be it. You can either buy or adopt them from your nearby rescue shelters. While you can buy or adopt these dogs from a nearby rescue shelter, you would have to ask your breeders to confirm the health history of your new friend.

Pros! Cons!
Active: If you want an active dog in the family, the Beaglier certainly delivers with its rambunctious nature. Health problems: Dogs are prone to several have problems that are genetically inherited from their parents. You will need to check with breeders for the health history of your dog.
Good with children: The dogs are great with children. Not be left on supervisor on small children as they can get hurt due to their compact size. Compact size: Stocks are very small so if you want a dog that is 30 and bulky this might not be the perfect choice for you.
Grooming: Since the Beaglier doesn’t have a very long coat, they won’t require as much grooming as other breeds. Shedding is not much of a problem with these dogs. Training: Sometimes it might be difficult to train these dogs especially if they have inherited the stubborn genes from the beagle.

Beaglier Common Health Issues

The Beaglier is generally a healthy breed. However, since they are a crossbreed of the Beagle and King Cavalier Spaniel, they inherit some health issues from their parents. Therefore, it is important to know what health issues are worth watching out for from the breeders if you are able to communicate with them.

Hip dysplasia is a common concern. It is rather easy to spot with an x-ray, but the pup may first start to limp as a sign that they are in pain. Beagle dwarfism may also occur, along with hypothyroidism. Ear infections and eye issues are of particular concern with this breed.

Some problems that these dogs suffer from include:

Beaglier Temperament

Beagliers are small and docile, which makes them the perfect pets for first-time owners. The temperament of the Beaglier makes them a good match for families with children, regardless of how old they are. They are relatively active and friendly with other dogs. However, they might not do so well with other pets such as cats or small rodents.

These dogs are rather loving, preferring a place by your side in silence when you need emotional support. They have an incredible sense of smell, leading them to explore and go on their own adventures. They will need a strong and sturdy fence to ensure that they do not escape when left alone.

How to Take Care of a Beaglier

With any animal, it is important to know what they will need to be happy and healthy in your home. Here are a few tips on taking care of your new Beaglier.

Beaglier Food and Diet

The genetic parents of this breed have vastly different dietary requirements, making it difficult to determine the best food for the Beaglier. When in doubt, high-quality dry dog food is the best choice, though their size and age will determine how much they need. While some dogs need as little as ¾ cup of food per meal, larger animals could need up to 1.5 cups instead. Base the number of meals each day on their current size.

Beaglier Maintenance and Grooming

These dogs are generally very easy to groom as they have short and shiny coats, which they usually inherit from their parents. Brushing them removes the excess and dead hair off their bodies, though shedding is not much of a problem with these dogs.

They do not need to be bathed often as this would lead their skin to become dry and flaky. They may need protection from the sun to prevent them from experiencing an allergic or adverse reaction to the sun. Brush their teeth and trim their nails regularly. Make sure to keep their ears clean to avoid infections and earwax buildup.

Beaglier Training

Training the Beaglier is rather unpredictable because the two breeds that make it up have contradictory attitudes towards their learning. While one picks up their commands rather quickly with their desire to please their owner, the other prefers to take a more relaxed approach. Regardless of the genetics that the Beaglier sides with, keep a positive attitude to encourage the same type of response.

Do not use any negative reinforcement with these dogs as that could have an adverse effect on their behavior. Consistency is the key with them.

Beaglier Exercise

These dogs do not have extensive exercise needs. One or two walks around the neighborhood would give them the physical activity necessary to keep healthy and in shape. Still, Beagliers greatly enjoy indoor playtime as well, which is why they make such great companions for children.

Beaglier Puppies

Take care of the Beaglier puppies just as you would take care of the adults. However, it is best to introduce the puppies into a social circle early on in life. This would help them avoid behavioral issues and would also help them develop good habits early on in life. Divide the meals of the puppies into smaller portions while giving them a higher quantity of meals to satisfy their small stomachs.

Beagliers and Children

Beagliers are great around children and other members of the family, adding entertaining playtime to the group. However, due to their compact size, they are very prone to get injured while playing. It is not recommended that these dogs are left unsupervised around small children who can unintentionally hurt them while playing.

This breed is suitable for children who are old enough to understand the dog’s nature and can safely play with it.
