49% My Beagle does not snore

Personal Thoughts from Owners: "Mr. Bojangles has snored since we've had him. Only if he sleeps on his back in bed though."

"Sometimes loud enough to turn up the TV and sometimes barely. They have always snored."

"She snores at least once a night and it is definitely loud enough to wake you up in the room over!"

"She snores at least once a night and it is definitely loud enough to wake you up in the room over!"

"Boss snores very loudly at times. His loudest is while laying on his back which is his favorite way to sleep. He has snored since I got him."

"The snoring has certainly developed over time. Even though my beagle is only almost 2, he snores louder than my husband (when my husband is sick!) I have to get up and move him around to make him stop!"

We asked Beagle Owners about Barking

43 % My Beagle barks more than I thought that they would

32% He or she only barks if he/she has a reason

18% He or she howls like a wolf !

7% Surprisingly, he or she does not bark a lot

Personal Thoughts from Beagle Owners: "He barks when the landscapers come into or near our yard with a weed-eater or leaf blower. We tell him to be quiet, then say "good quiet" and give him a treat. He stops right away and waits for the next treat."

"Birds, she hates birds and our neighbors feed the local birds and she will bark for over half an hour until they leave. Nothing has worked, ignoring her drives the neighbors mad, calling her up stairs and settling her keeps her quiet but then when I leave she will go back down and bark, telling her no is a stern voice doesn't work. 

She hasn't been receiving much exercise but that is only because she was spayed a week ago and we don't want to hurt her stitches in any way."

"Every evening at promptly 6 PM, he calls out to his invisible pack, waits for 5 mins and then calms down and is quiet the rest of then night."
