The beagle bulls are strong, confident, and enthusiastic. Being affectionate by nature, they express a great degree of love to not just their family but also strangers. Their gentleness combined with their eagerness to please people does not make them a prolific guard dog. They bond closely to their families and do not like to stay alone for a long time. The beagle bulls are not known to bark much, but when they do, they exhibit the distinctive vocalization of a beagle.
However, they are quite territorial just like their pit bull parents. When threatened, they will defend their family to the death. These dogs have a willingness to work, and they love to include themselves in everything that happens around them.
The moderately active and playful beagle bulls are tolerant to kids, and if trained early, they will become ideal playmates. However, they may show some aggression towards other dogs and pets because of their terrier ancestry. Therefore, supervision is necessary when they are around other household pets.
This breed of dog has the tendency towards being stubborn and dominating, which mixed with its strength can make it difficult to manage. To overcome these behavioral issues, you need to offer firm, fair, and consistent training, and let it know that you are its leader. Start familiarizing your pet with obedience commands early in its life, and keep practicing so that it does not lose its new skills. Early socialization and training also help in minimizing its aggression towards other pets.
The serving size and a solid feeding schedule – these are two of the most important aspects of feeding your beagle bull. The schedule should be varied depending on your pet’s age. Puppies need to consume more calories as they are continuously growing. Commercial dog foods are an excellent addition to your dog’s diet, but it should be given twice a day with the daily amount being 1.5-2 cups. Raw foods such as diced potatoes and carrot shavings can be incorporated in its diet.
