Keeping Your Curious Beagle Safe

With insatiable curiosity and boundless energy, Beagles can get into more things than you ever thought possible. Everything in your home is an adventure waiting to happen for this feisty breed. So what's a Beagle owner to do? Here are a few ways to make your home safe and sound for your hound:

Keep food under wraps. Beagles are chowhounds and will easily devour any food items left lying around. When entertaining, clear all food away from your coffee table and side tables, and don't leave leftovers sitting on your kitchen table and counter.

Make your cat's litter box inaccessible to your Beagle. The odor and textures of the kitty litter can be very inviting to this inquisitive, scent-tracking hound. That's why it is important that you store your kitty litter box in an area that is easily accessible to your cat only.

Put household plants out of reach. Many common houseplants can be toxic to dogs, including Amaryllis, English Ivy, and many lily varieties. If a plant is potentially dangerous, place it in an area where your Beagle can't reach it— even if he jumps on a chair or sofa.

Store medicine in a dog-proof cabinet. Prescription drugs can be lethal to your hound—so make sure that you store your medicine in a cabinet that is inaccessible to your Beagle.

Keep precious items out of reach. Whether it's a coffee-table book or a pair of Italian leather shoes, it could be your Beagle's next chew toy if left unattended. If it's important to you, keep it away from your Beagle.

Secure your backyard. Beagles love to dig and can often tunnel their way out of an enclosed yard. Make sure your fence is secure and cannot easily be tampered with by a crafty Beagle. And keep all yard and garden chemicals stored in a shed or garage.

Remember, your Beagle has a mind of his own, and needs exercise and mental stimulation to channel his energy. If you find your Beagle is becoming destructive, look into obedience training or activities such as agility or Flyball® to keep him stimulated. A busy Beagle is a good Beagle.
