I just took care of some beagles last week that are used for rabbit hunting. When Robin, Kim, and I were at the meet and greet, we were all very curious as to what rabbit hunting actually is defined as. We asked many questions, and I did my own research when I had a chance at home. It is more of a sport than actual hunting and killing rabbits. It gives the dogs a chance to do what they are bred to do and get lots of exercise, making them a much calmer and well balanced pet. The owner likes to run his beagles in field trials and runs the rabbits, but very rarely shoots them. I think all of us at Gwinnett Pet Watchers were happy to hear that! We are all animal lovers. Beagle field trials are a performance event through the American Kennel Club. There are many different categories in these trials. It is always very interesting to learn about something that a dog breed was actually meant to do and what they were bred for.
