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.

Temperament and Behavior
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.
A Bogle dog is quite exuberant and should be provided with enough opportunities to work off its energy. It enjoys going for 30-40 minutes regular walks and jogging with its family. A good run in a fenced yard will help stimulate its mind and body. You can consider playing fetch with your pet or getting it to participate in dog sports like a fly ball, agility, rallying, and dock jumping.
The Beagle and Boxer mix’s coat requires minimal maintenance. Simple weekly brushing is all that is required to remove dead hairs. Frequent bathing should be avoided unless its coat is appealingly stinky and dirty. You can rub its coat down with a wet towel to maintain its natural shine. The Bogle dog is prone to ear infections, making it necessary to examine its ears every two weeks. Monthly trimming its nails as well as weekly brushing its teeth is recommended.
The Bogle does not have any known breed-specific health concerns, but it may inherit genetic disorders from its parent breeds. Moreover, it may suffer from general dog conditions such as allergies, cardiovascular disorders, gastric issues, and problems of the hip joint.
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.
- The Bogle dogs are good jumpers, so they should be kept in properly fenced yards while outdoors to prevent them from wandering away.
