I was just watching Winston and the Cat in their daily boxing match. While Tigger swings a great right punch he occasionally tosses in a left hook, Winston only ever raises his left.(mostly in self defense) Just wondering if beagles (or dogs) are left or right pawed. Either way, Winston always loses the match!

Well, Jersey doesn't have a cat to box with but when shaking always gives her left. It took a while to teach her to use the other one to shake with.

Daisy seems to be ambidextrous. She uses both paws pretty much equally when boxing with the cat


She will also give me the correct paw most of the time if I ask for right or left.

The best way to find out which paw your dog favours is to place a treat under a couch or sideboard. Put the treat just out of its reach and then see which paw your dog uses to try to reach the treat. This will give you an indication of which paw your beag favours.
