Anyone who knows and loves dogs can attest to just how much they like to sniff. If you have a Beagle, you know his love for smelling is magnified. After all, it’s a Beagle’s instinct to follow his nose.

Even though their sniffers can sometimes get them into trouble, we all know that there’s nothing more satisfying than watching a Beagle do his thing.
