The Beaglier is a delightful crossbreed between the Beagle and the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. They were first bred in Australia in the 1990s to take advantage of the positive characteristics of both parents. They inherit the Beagle's intelligence and nose for scents, and the Cavalier's gentle affectionate nature. They always come in tri-colours of black, white and brown with large dark brown expressive eyes.
Beagliers usually have a short coat that requires minimal grooming, although some can inherit the Cavalier's longer silker coat. Their floppy ears and inquisitive faces make them a favourite with children. They are friendly, and adaptable dogs which make excellent family pets, even for families with small children. Their intelligence and willingness to please make them easily trainable, but they are prone to excessive barking if not trained properly from an early age. They can suffer separation anxiety if left alone for too long, and they have a tendency to howl if lonely. They also have digging tendencies and will dig under fences to escape if they are bored.
Beagliers’ strong sense of smell can lead them to follow all interesting scents, so they should be kept on a lead when exercising. They thrive on companionship and may become anxious when left alone for extended periods, leading to excessive barking or howling.
