The Beagle has an even temper and are a gentle breed. They are generally neither aggressive or timid.

The Beagle Personality

Beagles are very intelligent but because of their inherited bloodline, they can be difficult to train. They are easily swayed when picking up a scent. Though they are alert they can also be easily bored and distracted.

Beagles are excellent family dogs and are good around children. They also need a good amount of exercise and having a decent sized backyard also helps.

They love to be outside and enjoy the outdoors like any dog. But since we are talking Beagles, they love the outdoors over anything!  If  you have an apartment you will want to make sure to take him out for a walk on a daily basis and keep in mind they do not like being indoors all the time. A  house with a yard is the best choice and a great environment for a Beagle.
