Beagle puppies need a lot of nutrients for their developing bodies. If you’re feeding your pet store-bought food, always check the recommendation indicated in the packaging. In general, you need to feed them between 1 1/2 to 2 cups of dry food in a day. If you prefer home cooked food for your dog, the recommended portion size for Beagle puppies is fifty-five calories per pound of their body weight. If you’re feeding him wet food, it should be around 2 cans per day for growing pups. You should watch your Beagle’s diet and consult with your vet regarding any changes in his eating behavior. Beagles are prone to overeating which could lead to obesity and health problems like heart disease and arthritis. Their diet would also depend on their activity level. The more active they are, the more food or calories they need to give them energy.
You should schedule your Beagle’s mealtimes so that you can train them to behave well when it comes to eating. They will know when to expect food and will not go about scrounging for food. Beagle puppies from 8 weeks to 6 months should be given food 3 times a day – morning, afternoon, and night. When they’re 6 months and older, you can reduce their mealtimes into 2, one in the morning and another in the evening. This will ensure that they stay full and have the energy they need throughout the day.
