Having been deemed as an excellent family companion, these dogs attach themselves to the owner following him around the house. Since they enjoy love and affection, these pets should not be kept isolated all day. They are the happiest when they stay close to their owners and share most of their daily activities with them. They will make everyone laugh with their mischievous and humorous behavior.
The curious Beaglemations are intrigued by things around them, which means they are always alert to the situation and do a great job as watchdogs. Because of their characteristic friendliness and keen interest for games, the Beaglemations make a good playmate for children. They also do well with other pets upon early socialization.
When it comes to training a Beaglemation, the owner should adopt a calm, persistent, and positive approach. Since the dog can be a bit headstrong at times, obedience training is necessary to turn the puppies into a well-mannered and manageable adult. Positive reinforcement including food rewards, treats, and praise are needed when training your pet for dog sports and competitions. Introduction to strangers, including kids, adults, and other pets, is a must for Beaglemation puppies.
Limit your dog’s intake of foods such as organ meat that is dense in protein. Since undigested protein can accumulate and turn into small stones, offer your pet with plenty of fresh drinking water that will help flush the system. Feed the dog a fair amount of chewable treats as well as dry kibble to keep its teeth healthy. An adult Beaglemation’s diet should consist of two meals with the daily amount of dry food being 1.5-2 cups.
