Behavior Temperament and training: The Beagle has an even temper and gentle disposition. Described in several breed standards as "merry", they are amiable and generally neither aggressive nor timid, although this depends on the person. They enjoy the company, and while it may be aloof with strangers, they are easily conquered.
Beagles are intelligent, but as a result of being bred for the long chase are single-minded and determined, which can make them difficult to train. They are generally obedient but can be difficult to remember, once you have picked up a scent and are easily distracted by smells around them.
