They have unique skills and abilities that enable them to track a wide array of game animals such as foxes, deer, bobcats, and many others, as mentioned earlier. Beagles are great to go with on hunting expeditions since they track other animals with their noses close to the ground, making it faster and more comfortable for the hunter to find the prey. Hunters who couldnt afford horses would follow beagles on foot and locate, kill or capture.

In modern hunting, beagles are trained to be flushers whereby they scare other animals and make them come out of their hiding place, including bushes and harrows, so those hunters access them.

History

Beagles came into existence back in the 1500s. This probably makes them the oldest dog breeds. Hunters in England would use this dog breed for hunting for small animals, including hares, rabbits, jackals, wild pigs, birds, coyotes, and many more. Beagles were also employed for tracking in France and Wales. It is believed that the beagle dog breed is a cross between various types of English hounds and the harrier. A beagle breed type is known as Pocket beagle was a popular choice for hunters who went hunting while on horsebacks, and the hunters could carry them within pockets of their coats before starting the hunt since they measured less than 10 inches. Beagles would also be used by hunters who didnt own horses or found hunting with horses cumbersome, and they acquired the title foot hounds.

There’s also lots of speculation concerning the origin of the name Beagle. Some experts say the name originated from the French word “begeule meaning gape throat, owing to the baying voice of this dog breed. Some, on the other hand, speculate that the name is inspired by the Gaelic word beag, which implies small or little. Beagles have since then been very popular with American hunters and after they were first imported to America when the civil war.
