The Reagle is a cross between two legendary breeds: the Beagle and the Rottweiler. It is believed that hybrids take the best from their parents, and this opinion is not unfounded. Hybrids often have good health, as they do not inherit genetic diseases from their ancestors. Now Reagle is rapidly gaining popularity. To understand if this dog is suitable for you and your family, let’s get to know it better!
For any mix, appearance and performance can vary significantly, and Reagle is no exception. But according to the observations of the breeders and the appearance of the parents, there are approximate characteristics of this new breed.
The Reagle is a medium-sized dog with a strong, muscular build, well proportioned, and aesthetically pleasing. Typically Reagles weigh 50 to 85 pounds and are 15 to 27 inches tall. The coat is usually of medium length, the colors can be varied. Basic: brown, black, red, brown, and white. Very often the Reagle inherits the Rottweiler color.
Reagle can inherit a wide variety of traits from parents. But you can always correct the personality of the dog with the right upbringing. Let’s talk about the most characteristic temperament of these dogs.
Reagle can be both a ferocious and ruthless adversary, best friend, or, for example, a nanny for a small child. It all depends on the specific situation and environment, as well as, of course, on the people with whom he interacts. This breed is distinguished by its developed intelligence.
Despite the fact that this is a very harmonious and kind friend, he can often be naughty and act his own way despite your commands or displeasure. At the same time, the dog understands you, but sometimes it can be cunning and pretend that, on the contrary, does not understand what they want from him. Well, or just do it your way.
Reagle loves walking, loves active pastime, needs training, and physical activity. These dogs have a strong character with a certain degree of independence and do not take in vain aggression and groundless punishments from the owner. Such methods of upbringing and communication with a pet are the worst that can be, since the psyche of the animal will develop incorrectly, and it is not known what this will result in in the future. One thing is for sure – nothing good will come of it.
Strangers are perceived normally, with some caution, but without aggression, if the person does not show a negative attitude towards the owner or the dog itself. It is better to introduce them to cats at an early age. Also, Reagle needs early socialization.
Reagle is generally well-understood, smart enough, but still has a certain level of stubbornness. Physical punishment will not help to establish a leadership position and achieve better obedience. That is, you can achieve some success, but this will create a lot of problems in the character of the dog, make it depressed, and simply break it as a person. We need to be more flexible.
If during a walk the dog does not obey you, first talk to him strictly, and after coming home do not rush to feed. Let it wait for about an hour. Perhaps the result will not come immediately, but after a while, the pattern of your actions and your role as a leader will reach the animal. During training, keep a positive attitude and have enough treats in your pockets – they will come in handy. Do not make the sessions too long and boring, otherwise, the dog will be reluctant to complete the tasks.
The Reagle most often has a short coat that requires brushing once a week. Every day you need to cleanse your four-legged friend’s eyes from deposits, the ears are usually cleaned 2-3 times a week or, if necessary, after a walk. The animal is bathed twice a week, the claws are trimmed once every 10 days. This breed can be prone to gaining excess weight, so you need to monitor the diet.
This breed loves long walks and should have at least two long walks a day and two hours of exercise.
Briefly About Feeding
Reagle’s nutrition should be balanced. These dogs can be prone to obesity, and therefore the chance to turn a muscular dog into an immobile bun on paws is very high. For feeding, use premium dry food that is high in vitamins and minerals. Its daily dose is usually indicated on the package. From time to time, dilute the monotonous diet with natural products. Be sure to give your pet a teaspoon of vegetable oil to keep the coat looking healthy.
The water must be filtered and always present in the drinker.
Reagles are often in good health as they do not inherit genetic diseases from their ancestors. But this does not mean that a mestizo will never get sick because poor conditions of detention can undermine any canine immunity. To keep your furry friend as healthy as possible, be sure to schedule frequent vet visits at least once a year. Ask your veterinarian what you can do at home, including feeding and exercise, that can improve your dog’s health.
How to Choose a Puppy
It is recommended that you only purchase Reagle from approved kennels where puppies are kept in the correct conditions and undergo veterinary prophylactic procedures. Before you start choosing a charming toddler, watch the female, since in most cases her character and habits are passed on to babies.
The best age to acquire a puppy is 1.5-2 months. During this period, the Reagle became accustomed to self-feeding and gradually moved away from over-parenting by the mother. Do not forget about the main thing: the earlier the baby appears in your house, the more chances you have to make an obedient dog out of him.
