The Baying Beagle

Share

The Beagle is famous for the sound of his "voice," a unique sound that can be recognized by hunters near and far. But why does the Beagle resort to baying while other dogs bark?

What Is Baying?

Just like many sounds, it's difficult to describe the sound of baying. In fact, the best way to truly understand what baying sounds like is by hearing it firsthand. It's a sound you're not likely to forget.

Here are some descriptions that people use to describe this sound:

  • Half bark, half howl
  • A long-drawn-out and deep bark
  • A musical cry


Why Does the Beagle Bay?

The Beagle bays as a result of his hunting past. The bay is a signal that the Beagle uses to tell a hunter that he is hot on the pursuit of his prey. A hunter can hear a Beagle's bay from deep within the woods, and as soon as a hunter hears his Beagle baying, he knows that he has found the scent of, or has cornered, his prey.

Differences in Opinion

Hunters absolutely love the sound of their Beagle's baying-but not everyone feels the same way. Although Beagles are not generally "talkative" dogs, they can get loud when left home alone, or if bored. Not surprisingly, your Beagle's loud baying can present problems if you live in an apartment or home that is in close proximity to neighbors.

If your Beagle is not a hunting dog, and you live somewhere that requires him to keep quiet, you can acquire the services of a professional trainer. However, baying comes instinctively to a Beagle, and it may be very difficult to train him to ignore his instinct to produce this amazing and unique sound.
