The Bogle, often spelled as “Boggle”, is a breed of dog produced from a Boxer and Beagle parent. It is a strong, muscular, and athletic crossbreed that inherits its expressive face, drooping ears, deep chest, and a long body with well-balanced posture from its ancestors. It is a fitting choice of pet for those who want a merry, fun-loving, and active companion. Its natural hounding instincts along with a great sense of smell make it suitable for use in detection of narcotics, watching, and tracking activities.

The Bogle dogs will keep you amused with their funny and playful nature. When they are not acting in a silly manner, they will have an air of confidence and dignity. Even though they are wary of strangers, they will respond to friendly people in a polite fashion. These pets are always patient and responsive with active older children. However, they can be rambunctious at times, which make supervising their interactions with toddlers necessary. Teach your kids never to annoy the Bogles while they are sleeping or eating. The Beagle Boxer cross will mingle with other animals including dogs and cats if they are socialized at a young age.
The Bogle does not like to be treated harshly, especially when it is trained. Resort to firm, consistent training methods instead and make sure that you reward its good behavior with treats. Try exposing your dog to strangers as well as other pets when it is young. This will prevent it from becoming ill-tempered and aggressive. Apart from basic obedience, it is necessary to house train your Bogle puppies to help it learn good habits and etiquettes.
A meal containing 25% protein is recommended for this actively working breed. An adult Bogle will need 2-3 cups of high-quality dog food on a regular basis. You may include few sources of slow-burning carbohydrates such as brown rice and sweet potatoes in your dog’s diet. Make sure your pet gets enough quantities of fish, eggs, raw meat, pumpkins, and carrots.
