The beagles like to cuddle the beagles love to cuddle. The Beagles love being close to people, in general. If he's curled up with you in bed, it's even better. Because of their instinctive nature, beagles feel safe and secure in confined spaces.
Apart from that, they have a very affectionate and social personality. That's why beagles love to curl up in the arms of their human companion and hug them all day long. Not all dogs enjoy cuddles and are affectionate. Every dog has a unique personality, and not all of them are very cuddly.
Yes, your Beagle is a hugger and loves to feel warm in your embrace. It's not unusual in dogs, but your beagle can be a little more pampered than dogs of other breeds. There are many reasons for this. When dogs were first domesticated for humans to hunt, hunters and their dogs slept together on cold nights to keep warm.
As a dog bred specifically for hunting, the Beagles still retain that cuddle instinct. In AKC's fragrance work, the Beagle can compete in the odor search division or the manipulator discrimination division. In some serious cases, you'll need to train your beagle to help with its stress when you leave home. Your Beagle may not understand the science behind his need for a hug, but he definitely understands how good it makes him feel.
Remember, the more loving and affectionate you are towards your beagle, the more affectionate your beagle will be. My own Beagle, Lincoln, shows affection by simply looking at me with those touching brown eyes until I caress or hug it. Beagle hugs aren't a substitute for blood pressure control and a heart-healthy diet, but they can help. Your Beagle often jumps on your lap and snuggles comfortably with its arms around it and barely protests.
If you have the privilege of raising your beagle from an early age, trust can be established fairly quickly. The Beagle knows how to melt your heart with its lots of tenderness, big brown or hazel eyes, long ears and hounds placed low on a wide head. Because of this, over time the beagles became very socially comfortable with us humans and now they love to cuddle with us. The 30,000 years of living with humans have made your beagle very similar to humans in its ability to express love and seek the human embrace.
Just as you use food motivation to train your beagle to respond to commands, you can use your own affection to praise your beagle's physical acts of love. If your Beagle knew that your pets and cuddles were helping you live a healthier life, they'd be even happier than usual. I'm Alex Fritchley, I grew up with beagles and have been training dogs professionally for the past 5 years. Beagles were bred as hunting dogs, part of large herds of other beagles to hunt and track small animals.
