The history of the Beaglier dog breed is rarely short. They were created at the beginning of the 1990s and started to gain much more popularity recently. This dog breed originates from Australia, and even today, this is where they are the most popular.

Beaglier breeders wanted to create a smaller dog that would be even-tempered but without so many hound instincts. We would say that they succeeded since the Beaglier has a good temperament but with smaller hunting instincts.

Their parents are a highly popular dog breeds not only in the US but worldwide, but Beaglier is yet to get famous.

Beaglier dogs were created to be loving and gentle, and this is exactly what they are. They are excellent choices for families with kids as they can be excellent playmates for them.

As is the thing with all cross-dog breeds, their temperament and personality can differ, and they inherit personality traits from both parents. Usually, when we talk about Beaglier dogs, they are cheerful, happy, and very affectionate.

These dogs will love spending time with you and your family and enjoy various games you are ready to play with them.

Care and grooming

Beagliers may have different coat types depending on the characteristics they inherit. With these dogs, you can expect coats to be short and waterproof like the Beagles, and in other cases, they can have medium-length curly coats like King Charles Spaniel.

No matter what the type is, their maintenance is pretty low, and you will not have to put a lot of effort into their care. Regular brushing will do the trick and keep their hair good and healthy.

Beagliers comes in these colors

  • Red
  • Brown – chocolate – liver
  • Black
  • Blue
  • white

These dogs will need a bath only a few times a year since they are pretty clean dogs and don't smell unless they roll into smoothing dirty or smelly.

The only potential problem with these dogs are their ears, and they will need more of your attention. They are susceptible to developing ear infections, and to prevent that, you will have to regularly clean them.

The rest is pretty much basic care, trim their nail when you hear them clicking on the floor, regularly clean their teeth to remove tartar and to secure good and fresh breath.

As with any dog breed, early socialization is necessary if you want to grow up with a well-behaved dog breed. People often think smaller dogs don't need socialization, and they are completely wrong. No matter the dog's size, if he is not properly socialized, he may experience behavior problems, and you can have many problems with your dog.

Are Beagliers good with kids?

These dogs are excellent choices for families with kids. Kids will get playing mates with enough energy to follow them around. No matter how good your dog is, you should always surprise them while they play, mostly to protect your dog from the kids.

Usually, it can happen that kids will start to pull the dog by their tail, which they will not love, and you must be there to stop this from happening.

Can Beagliers get along with other dogs and other animals?

This will solely depend on your dog. These dogs can get along with other dogs and animals if they are introduced to them properly from an early age and properly socialized. However, even with the proper socialization, there could be a situation where your Beaglier will not like some smaller animals.

As you may know, Beagles have a high prey drive, while the King Charles Cavaliers don't. Depending on the characteristics your dog has inherited, he may or may not have a high prey drive, so it is pretty hard to say if your dog will get along with other animals. This is an individual thing.

Training is extremely important for these dogs. Beagliers are intelligent dogs and can quickly pick up your commands. They are especially food driven, which will make training them much easier. You will just have to prepare their favorite treats.

You need to start early and provide your dog with proper training to get the best results. If you are unsure how to do it, we advise you to seek help from a professional.

Proper training will secure a well-behaved dog that will not experience behavior problems. Training them will also mean that you will spend more time with your dog, which he will surely love.


Beagliers have a lot of energy and need the proper amount of daily activities to be happy and satisfied. If you provide him with enough physical and mental stimulation throughout the day, you can be sure your dog will not develop bad traits and behavior.

These dogs are very adjustable and can adapt to any living condition, whether you live in a smaller apartment or a house with a big yard.
