This may sound a little strange, but does anybody know why beagles make a strange 'dook dook' noise when they are sniffing sometimes? We think that it sounds hilarious, but don't know what one earth it is.

mine does that. I was told it is because there are sniffing the scent through their mouths to taste it, I think most hounds do it, I had a blu tic hound once and he did the same thing. Thats why they can pick up a scent so quick.

That's interesting. I've not heard the "dook dook" noise before. I don't think our beagles have made that particular sound.

On the other hand, they do make loud and disgusting hacking, gagging and clearing their throat noises. And they've always seemed to do so right as we meet strangers while on walks. I've had people spin around and look directly at me, like it was me doing it.

Ohhhh that's what that is! Beagle #1 does that all the time, we call it her 'happy grunt' because she always seems to do it when she is really content (i.e. at the puppy park, going for walks, waiting for dinner, looking for hidden chicken necks in the back yard)
