Dogs have participated in sports for well over 100 years as a means of identifying the best specimens for carrying out work such as hunting, retrieving, shepherding and ground work. Now dog sports are a popular pastime to not only find good working dogs, but as a recreation for dogs and their owners to participate in.

Beagles excel in a range of dog sports. Being a hunting breed, they have the drive and instincts to participate in many sports. Australia conducts a wide range of dog sports available for beagles.

Some of the sports available in Australia for beagles to participate in include:

  • Obedience
  • Agility
  • Tracking
  • Lure coursing
  • Drag hunting
  • Endurance
  • Jumping
  • Dancing
  • Dock diving
