Beagle owners should be careful about how much food they give their dogs. "Beagles are so enthusiastic about food that we tend to overfeed them," says Pet Health 101. Aside from watching your beagle's caloric intake, be sure to give it enough exercise. A romp at the park or in a spacious yard area, along with regular leash-led walks, are great outdoor activities for beagles. Along with weight gain, the breed is prone to developing lipomas, a kind of benign, fatty tumor. Consult your vet about any lumps you find on your beagle to ensure they're not something more serious.
