I'm new here and just became the owner of an adult, female beagle that my husband got from our animal shelter. (She's getting spayed tomorrow.) So, here goes the questions:

1. How in the world do I keep her focused on walks? She is very distracted with smells and doesn't bother to do her business. (We have to make fence improvements before letting her loose in the backyard.)

2. How much food should I be feeding a 20 lb. female each day?

3. If my beagle's nipples are prominent and not flat, does that mean she's had puppies in the past or is this just normal?

4. What flea/tick preventative and heartworm medications are safe and recommended?

5. With my girl being SO consumed with sniffing the ground voraciously (Maybe she was a hunting dog?), any suggestions on how I can best train her to walk by my side on a leash?

6. How often do beagles need a bath?

7. Do beagle owners brush their dogs' teeth? (Please don't laugh! Greyhounds have notoriously bad teeth and oral hygiene was very important.)


Thanks for your answers. I'm going to explore the threads and soak in the information I discover.

Thanks so much for your reply.

Is this board very active? (Seems like a ghost town...)

Anyway, my husband called from the vet. Our beagle seems to be around 4 to 4.5 years old. "Bela" is getting spayed this morning.

Q: Why would a beagle tremble each time she inhales? Is it just excitement/anticipation?
