Get a crash course on the cute and fun-loving Beagle with the Wiley Beagles For Dummies. Known for their humor and intelligence, as well as a stubborn nature, life with these little hounds can lead to years of joy and love—but they aren’t just another hound dog, and this book covers it all. Perfect for anyone who is thinking about getting a Beagle or who already lives with one, it answers all your questions in an easy-to-read manner.

In this book, you’ll learn first and foremost whether a Beagle is the right dog for you, and if so, whether you should choose a puppy or adult and male or female. It also covers how to correct common behavioral issues—like keeping him out of the hamper—what you need to survive puppyhood, how to Beagle-proof your home, how to train him, what health issues are common in the breed and more. Using expert knowledge and personable language, this book answers all of your questions and then some with fun facts, tips and amusing anecdotes.
