I am not a Beagle owner yet (thinking about it) but have raised sled dogs for years. The behavior around the guinea pigs sounds like food guarding behavior to me. Even though the little beagle doesn't kill the pigs he may still instinctively relate to them as food. They are rodents after all and the beagle is a rodent HUNTER. I would not put the dogs in that situation where they are with the rodents. When I fed my sled dogs I always kept them separate to avoid trouble. That is what I think is going on and sounds similar to the pet rat situation. I don't think it is jealousy.
