Beagle Harrier


Beagle Harrier - Group VI. – Scent hounds and related breeds, Section 1 - Medium sized Hounds

General Appearance:

Beagle Harrier is a mild, sweet, very calm, affable and gentle in its actions. It is one of the easiest hunting breeds for handling and it is always tolerant and reasonably lively.

For its body it is clearly better if it can live permanently with the owner and owner´s family. If it is bred (excluding working utilization) it is still in an outdoor kennel, it suffers psychologically. If it is properly socialized, it tolerates with other dogs well, with all pets and children is never aggressive.


It can be owned even by beginner who has an understanding .If you can get advice from more experienced breeder who breeds this type (e.g. Beagle) who knows this breed well. If the owner respects the principle of a kind of consistency in education and leadership, Beagle Harrier is fairly easy to train and easy to train.

It is best if the training does not take long, but training should be a daily and may be repeated at least twice a day. Beagle Harrier learns when proper procedures a quickly and gladly, willingly cooperates, it is able to focus and make every endeavour challenge. While it is respecting the schedule of the training and it is looking forward to it, if it happens regularly, it is always ready.

Any hard or even violent training methods, i.e. par force (training by force) this breed hates, harm would have been an inexcusable abuse by this breed.


This is a hound harmonious, balanced, proportionate body, noble, agile and powerful, bigger than a Beagle and smaller than Harrier height at withers   about 45 to 50 cm.

The nose is quite large, black. The eyes are open enough, dark, lively, relaxed, intelligent expression. The earlobes are set in the eye level line, hanging. They may not be too long. They are reasonably wide, the front edges fit tightly to the cheeks, the back slightly rounded projecting from the head and peaks are slightly oval in shape.

Tail of medium length, on the lower side covered with slightly longer hair, still hanging down, moving up cheerfully borne.

The chest must be sufficiently deep and ribs should not be too curved surface so as not to narrow. Breastbone extends far back. The forelegs should be strong, straight, in an attitude parallel. The hindquarters must be flat and should not be viewed by excessively bent. Feet should be extended, but not narrow, with tight toes and high, stiff padded.

Tri-colour (fawn with black blanket, and white); not too much importance should be given to the blanket, with markings more or less bright tan, or pale, or with black overlay. Because there is  existing  grey Harrier, the grey tri-colours or the white-greys would not be either disqualified or penalised only because of their colour.

Faults include too heavy a head, a very abrupt stop, mottled nose, muzzle short and square or end pointed, arched nasal bridge (down faced) overshot or undershot jaw, corkscrew swaddled earlobes (show on subsequent rush of blood French hounds) flat or unclosed feet, fearful look stupid (dumb) expression on his face.
