Most importantly, you have to make sure that you have enough time to spend with your beagle puppy. Beagle puppies prefer to have companion around them. If you need to work and can’t spend much time with your beagle puppy, it is recommended that you adopt a few more pets to accompany your beagle puppy. Any type of pets such as a Chihuahua or even cats will do the job, since beagle puppies are friendly and sociable in nature.

Next, you have to be cautious with the health of your beagle puppy. Beagle puppies, when compared to other breeds of dog, are more prone to diseases such as cancer, epilepsy, back problems and kidney failure. Therefore, it is vital that you bring your beagle puppy to the vet for regular health checkups. When diagnosed at an early stage, these diseases should not cause too much trouble. Other than health checkups, you should also bring your beagle puppy outdoor to exercise. Exercising allows your beagle puppy to maintain its fitness and prevents obesity. In the long run, obesity will cause skeletal problems and other heart related diseases. For that reason, it is important for your puppy to exercise regularly. Bringing your beagle to the park may be a good form of exercise for your puppy but you have to make sure that your puppy is on a leash, as it will wander off from your sight if something catches its attention.
Lastly, you have to pay attention to the grooming of your beagle puppy. Beagle puppies tend to shed quite a lot of hair. Therefore, you must brush its coat at least once per week to keep the coating of your puppy clean and healthy. It is also a type of emotional bonding when you help to brush the hair of your puppy. Other than brushing its hair, you will have to clean the ears of your puppy. As the hairs of the puppy always trap moisture underneath its ear, infection often occurs around that area. Therefore, you will have to clean the ears of your puppy with dry cotton buds.
