If you are new to beagles, please read these articles “For Pet Owners”. For more information, visit “For Judges and Breeders”.
Thank you for your interest in my 2018 litter. I will begin to accept applications at this time and you can expect a brief acknowledgement of receipt within 24 hours. I do not keep a waiting list but prefer to consider applicants when I have puppies. Priority is given to existing Talbot Hill families and to breeders/exhibitors for show quality puppies. Applicants will be contacted as puppies become available (late March/early April). The 2018 litter will be ready to go to their new homes the weekend of April 14 & 15. There is no advantage to getting the application in sooner so please take your time and provide thorough answers to the questions. My blog will be updated regularly as the puppies grow and I will use my blog to address some of the questions that come up in the applications. Thank you again for your interest and taking the time to apply.
The price for the puppies is $1300. Pet puppies are sold with limited AKC registration and a spay/neuter agreement. Show puppies are sold with co-ownership agreement and breeding rights.
To inquire about a Talbot Hill puppy, please e-mail the following information with “2018 Puppy Inquiry” in the subject line. Any inquiries made not using this form will be ignored.

Puppy or puppies you are interested in:
Describe your past experience with beagles or your reasons for choosing this breed.
Describe how the beagle will spend its day. Do you work at home or outside the home? Are you retired and able to spend your days with your new beagle? Will you be taking your beagle to work? I have successfully placed beagles in a variety of situations but I want to hear how your new beagle will fit into your family life.
Do you have training plans for your beagle or plans to compete in performance events? Have you identified a puppy kindergarten class in your area? Are you interested in obedience or agility? Do you have children involved in 4H or junior showmanship?
Describe your home, yard, fencing, and gates. If possible, include photos or video of your yard and fencing. This is perhaps one of the most crucial questions for me…knowing that the puppies will be safe and secure in their new homes. A beagle’s nose can get it into all sorts of trouble and I cannot emphasize strongly enough the importance of a securely fenced yard and the need to ALWAYS walk a beagle on leash. A beagle from one of my last litters slipped out of a gate that hadn’t been completely latched by the gardener, she ran out into the street, and was hit by a car. The family was devastated, the children were devastated, I was devastated. Of course, accidents do happen, but I want to know that everything possible will be done to ensure their safety. More about Secure Fencing.
Please include any questions that you have about the breed, about the puppies, or about Talbot Hill Beagles.
Breeders/Exhibitors inquiring about show prospects: Please summarize your experience in dogs, your experience with beagles, and discuss your plans for the puppy you inquire about. List mentors/references, include link to your web site or Facebook page and please ask any questions that you have about the puppy or the pedigree.
