    DefaultAnyone have any experience with your labs and beagles?

    I have a 3 year old chocolate lab male. He is a great dog of course. He loves kids and other dogs, mainly just labs and other retrievers. My question is, does any have a lab and beagle? A buddy of mine has come to a place where he can't keep his beagle. She is 3 or 4 and spayed. I'm not so worried about my lab causing any issues, just not sure about how beagles are with other dogs, especially labs.

    Generally they are a really good match. Paddysmom (Nance on this board) has a beagle and 2 Labs amongst her several dogs and they are fine friends.

    Thank you! I didn't think there would be any reasons why they wouldn't be best of friends. I think I'll go get her for a day and just keep a close eye on them.

    Just introduce on neutral ground - like maybe a local park. It's better than bringing her to your home and having your dog just have to deal with this strange dog on his turf. Once he spends a little time with her elsewhere, they should be OK at your home (presuming she is as well socialized as your dog).

    I'm glad you mentioned that. I didn't even think about the neutral area!

    Beagles generally get along with everyone. But obedience-wise they are complete opposites. You can never fully trust a beagle off leash, and you need to make sure that your yard is secure. If they catch a scent, that is all that matters to them. The ears turn off and they are gone following that scent as long as possible. They can also be very vocal. But they are great little dogs!

    Introduce them in a neutral territory like mentioned previously. The beagle is probably going to be more interested in following the scents.

    My niece has one and she´s a happy friendly dog. They have huge stomachs LOL. What I can´t stand about beagles is their bark. They are very loud.
