The Beagle is no more high maintenance than any other dog. Every dog requires food, shelter, warmth, love, company, stimulation and exercise - if you don't have the resources to fulfil these needs then it is best not to own a dog. The Beagle, essentially being a hunting dog, however does have one specific needs- due to its highly developed working instinct i.e. scent-work - the Beagle requires a very secure property and supervision when running free. Although the Beagle is a hunting dog, it is also one of the best family dogs, generally great with children and super with other pets. More can be found on the rest of the website.

In July 2020 the Beagle Association of Gauteng and it's members had to sadly say our goodbyes to a legend, a lady who had loads of passion and knowledge, a lady that spent 30 odd years of her life dedicated to the Beagle breed.
Ms Shuna de Villiers, known in and around the show ring for her Pinoak Beagles, and former chairman of the Beagle Association, sadly passed away in July 2020. She will be remembered for her passion and dedication, wit and knowledge. Shuna will be sorely missed, not only by the Beagle people, but all around the dog world.
Rest in peace, Shuna!
