Do beagles shed a lot?

No, beagles don’t shed a lot. They’re considered moderate shedders because they shed heavily once or twice a year for two or three weeks when they shed their seasonal coat. This typically happens in early spring, when they no longer need their winter coat.

With their short, double coat, beagles are pretty easy to groom. Brushing once or twice a week with a standard bristle brush is enough to keep their coat in good condition and to control the amount of dead hair they shed. However, in the shedding season, a de-shedding tool will reach their undercoat more quickly and easily.

In short, while shedding isn’t much of an issue compared to many other breeds, beagles are not the best choice if you’re looking for a dog that won’t shed at all, or if you have allergies to dog hair.
