Care

Exercise

Beagle bulldogs are breeds that need a lot of exercise and stimulation. A long walk for one or two times is highly required for them on a daily basis in addition to some amount of playtime. If your house has access to a fenced yard, it is the best place for a beagle bulldog. Make sure to burn off the energies as they are highly active or else they may become aggressive, destructive and boisterous. Frisbee, tug of war, and fetching games are perfect. You can even take them to a dog park. Whatsoever, you need to make them exercise for at least an hour to an hour and a half on a regular basis.

Grooming

Beagle bulldogs suffer from moderate shedding, so they have moderate grooming needs. Brushing once in a week is needed for the coat to keep it healthy. But sometimes, they may shed more and in that case, regular brushing needs to be done. They will also need bathing occasionally at least every month, or they might develop the bad smell. Be careful to use a dog shampoo or else the natural oils might be damaged. Clip their nails quite often and clean their ears with a dampened cloth. Also, medicated wipes are needed on a weekly basis along with brushing their teeth two to three times a week.

Health problems

Since the Beagle bulldog is a designer breed and there is limited information about any particular health concern troubling the breed. Pitbull mix puppies do not tend to suffer from long-term ailments but can inherit health concerns from their parent breeds i.e. the Beagle and the American Pitbull Terrier dogs. Some common issues include hip and elbow dysplasia, allergies, problems of the heart, eye infections, dental issues such as tartar build-up and plaque, hypothyroidism and even Parvovirus infections.

You need to get your dog vaccinated within 39 days after birth, so make sure your breeder does that to avoid much of these issues. Also, they require vaccination twice a month up to the age of 4 months. After they are eight months old, they should be vaccinated again for maintenance of better health.

Training

Beagle bulldogs are somewhat intelligent, but there can be a little difficulty in training them. Their stubborn and willful nature makes the training a little harder compared to other dogs. You must be established, firm and gentle to handle them. The key to training them well is consistency. You may treat them with tasty foods for motivating and rewarding them to make the training sessions interesting. You should also begin socialization as early as possible right from the day you bring them home. This will enable them to deal properly with children, other pets and dogs and changing situations.

Feeding

The schedule of feeding and the size of servings are the two main aspects of feeding a beagle Bulldog. However, the feeding schedule may vary depending on the dog’s age. Puppies, unlike older ones, need to consume more amount of calories for their growth and healthy being. You can also offer raw foods like diced potatoes and carrot shavings. Incorporate these into their diets along with good quality dog food. Commercially well branded dry dog foods are the best additions to their diets. About one and a half cups to two cups of dry and high-quality dog food a day split into two meals is sufficient to take care of their daily needs.
