Health and Care

The Bagle Hound should do well on a high-quality dog food, whether commercially manufactured or home-prepared with your veterinarian’s supervision and approval. Any diet should be appropriate to the dog’s age (puppy, adult, or senior).Some dogs are prone to getting overweight, so watch your dog’s calorie consumption and weight level; you should be able to feel the dog’s ribs and backbone, but not see them.

The Bagle Hound has a smooth, dense double coat that gets heavier in the winter, so spring is shedding season. They also shed moderately year-round. Weekly brushing with a medium-bristle brush, a rubber grooming mitt or tool, or a hound glove will remove the loose hair, and promotes new hair growth as well. Bagles don’t need to be bathed too often, unless they happen to get into something particularly messy. 

As a lover of games, the bagle hound enjoys playing games like chasing balls, retrieving sticks, etc. They are energetic dogs with hounding instincts, and need physical activities to stay fit and mentally sound. They need room to run and play, and hence, you should take them out for walks and jog every day, or else there are chances for them to get bored staying indoors.

A properly-trained bagle hound might be the envy of your neighbors. On the contrary, if it is not trained properly, you might end living with a dog that scratches, bites, jumps, chews, and commits other destructive mischief. Begin the training from a very early age. Your dog is intelligent and moreover, ready to please you, and hence, would pick up socialization, housebreaking, and training fast.
