The Beagle is considered to be one of the most easy-going and friendly breeds in the Hound group. The Beagle loves to provide and be provided with companionship. He loves to be able to explore the outdoors and follow his nose. He can be stubborn if he is left untrained. If provided with the necessary exercise, the Beagle can thrive in the great outdoors, though once exploration time is done, he will be happiest indoors with the family.
