Keeping Pets Cool during the Balmy Summer Months

My husband and I live in the beautiful southern United States. While we wouldn’t want to live anywhere else, we sometimes get excruciatingly hot during the summer months. We aren’t the only ones that get hot at our home though. Our beautiful dog Lucy also gets hot. I’m constantly searching for effective ways to keep her cool while she’s outside. And during the winter, it can get oddly cold at times. Do you have loving pets at home? Consider purchasing a small plastic pool for your pets to splash around in. And when it's cold, make sure to monitor them very carefully while outside. On this blog, I hope you will discover ingenious tips to help you care for your pets during any extreme weather.

Pets & Animals Blog

When it comes to purchasing or rescuing a dog, it can be hard to decide what you would like. One thing you must do is determine if the dog is a good fit for your family. One option is a beagle puppy. They are adorable and do not grow into large dogs. Keep reading to learn more about this breed. 

Choosing a Puppy

When you decide that you want to purchase or rescue a beagle puppy, you should be aware they come in two sizes. There is the standard beagle, which is a mid-sized dog, and there is a much smaller beagle. Smaller beagles may be more expensive, however, if you purchase the puppy from a breeder. 

Look online for breeders in your area and do your research. You want a breeder that only has a few litters a year.  A good breeder can give you information about the parents to help you determine the personality of your dog. Look at rescues in your area as you may find beagles that need good homes. 

Living With a Beagle

Beagles are hunting dogs, but they make great inside pets. Do not keep this dog in the backyard as they are happiest inside with their family. One thing to consider is beagles have a unique bark, and they do bark a lot. Their bark can be loud and sound more like a howl. Some training can help cut down on how much they bark. Beagles are known to get along well with children and other pets you may have in your home.

Beagles are cheerful and happy dogs and love to get affection. They do prefer to be with someone, so this breed is not a good choice if they will be left alone a lot. If they are, the dog may howl loudly, as well as be destructive inside your home. These dogs are stubborn, so they are more difficult to train, and it may take longer to house-train them. These are active dogs that are also curious. Because they are hound dogs, they will roam if given the chance. Fence in your yard to keep this from happening so your dog can enjoy spending time outside. 

A breeder can give you much more information about beagles to help you make the right decision. Reach out to a breeder who has beagle puppies for sale to learn more about this breed.
