Behaviour issue

I stay in a cottage where I have to walk past an 8 year old doggie. I think it's a Beagle X. Him and the JR wait at my garden gate in the mornings for me to greet me and for heir biscuit. If I don't have one they don't mind. He does bark though (even if I give him one). However in the afternoon/evenings he 'attacks' me and grabs my pants ar goes for my heels. By that time his owners are around and maybe he's protective. Or is he suffering from dementia. OR is he naughty? I don't want it to get to a point where he gets locked up. He even tried to grab my dog's bum through the fence once while I was entering the gate. Mine are placid as they are geriatrics. So not too worried about that. But his owners are getting stressed.
