Going to visit a litter of beagle pups on Monday and want to know what other beagle owners think. I’d like to hear from anyone who has a beagle and a cat! What are the pro’s and cons of the breed? I have a 4 year old daughter who is going to be over the moon!
I have had a beardie collie x and a border collie before and both were fine with cats – the beardie collie x was about 6 years old when we got a cat and after a week or so they got on great. hope this will be the same!

Hi I have two beagles and am a dog trainer. As long as they are introduced to the cat as a pup than you shouldn’t have any problems. They are friendly out going dogs with an even temper. But they have the most annoying bark i’ve ever heard, almost like a dying seal. They have a very strang tendancy to wander and if you leave the gate open and unattended, don’t expect to have a beagle for too long. They are massive pigs and get fat very quickly so watch that and don’t over feed them. Have fun with your pupppy, my two are gorgeous although slightly excitable.
