Others complained about Labradors and Boxers too, while many agreed that Cavalier King Charles is the best breed for first-time owners.
According to PetPlan, Beagles are intelligent, friendly and excitable but need “a strong hand in their early training”.
“They love to follow a scent and can jump walls and dog under fences in pursuit of its quarry – and can be very vocal doing so!” they said.
They continued: “They get on well with other pets and people but may need some supervision when playing with small children, as they can get carried away with playfulness.”
It means that they may not be a good choice for first-time owners who have young children in the house.
