Do beagles protect their owners?

Yes, beagles protect their owners. As pack dogs, beagles instinctively protect their family and can become great watchdogs for children.

However, their natural friendliness means they’re not the best breed if you’re looking for a guard dog, because they’re too friendly with strangers. If a beagle senses a threat, he’s likely to bark or howl, but will rarely become aggressive or bite.

Beagles aren’t typically overprotective of their owner or territorial like some other breeds, which means they’ll happily welcome visitors to your home.
