The Raggle dog is a high energy canine that exhibits mostly the qualities and characteristics of the Beagle. They love their owners and are extremely fond of their families, including children, and make wonderful family companions. With all their inherited enthusiasm, they would cherish playing with the kids, and also enjoy being loved, hugged and cuddled by their loved ones. With their basic affectionate nature, they are also tolerant towards other pets in its family, including dogs. However, you should only allow them to mix with your pets when you are sure that they have thoroughly been socialized to the extent that they are able to overcome their hunting instincts by friendly behavior.
Raggles have a strong prey drive, which has been inherited from both their parents. You might expect your raggle chasing birds and squirrels at any time. Sometimes they also display stubborn behavior, which might make training a bit difficult. They need owners who are affectionate as well, and are ready to devote time for them each day.
It is recommended that you choose to pet a raggle if only you have a spacious house with a lawn or garden. These dogs are not much comfortable with apartment living since they need a lot of space to run around and play. Because of their highly avid nature, they need lots of outdoor activities.
Being as intelligent as its Rat terrier parent, the Raggle would respond brilliantly to training if it gets the company of a patient and tactful owner who can handle its inherited stubbornness in a firm way.
Feed your pet raggle with three-fourth to one and a half cup of dry dog food on a daily basis. Treats may be given occasionally. It would be a good option to consult your vet and fix a diet chart for your dog so that he gets all the essential nutrients needed for a proper physical and mental growth.
