Yes, beagles shed year-round. To remove loose hairs from their coats and reduce shedding, it is best to brush beagles at least one or two times per week. Beagles do not require special grooming and can generally be bathed three to four times per year.
Beagles are considered a good family dog because they are loving, happy and easygoing. They are also good hunting dogs and love to follow scent trails. Because beagles are very quick, energetic and playful, regular exercise is very important. A beagle's weight generally ranges from 20 to 35 pounds, and its lifespan is 13 to 16 years.
