The Beagle puppy is an AKC registered dog breed. The following article reviews the breed.
Owning a beagle is a great source of joy. Just look at their innocent eyes and you can’t help but have a soft spot in your heart for them. Beagle puppies possess boundless amount of energy which can add to the challenge of training them. Below are some guidelines to help you train your Beagle.
Before you get down to the training, it is important to begin to bond with one another first. This helps build a level of trust between you and your dog.
There are some owners who would say that their Beagle has a mind of its’ own. This is because the Beagle is an intelligent, independent and very stubborn breed. This is part of their scent hound nature and these traits serve them well hen hunting. In view of this, you need to have patience and be consistent in your training. Doing this will establish good habits from the beginning.
Beagles, as well as all other dogs, respond best when positive reinforcement is given. Non-violent, non-negative methods should be practiced during training together with repetition, consistency, and rewards. There is no room for any harsh treatment. Beagles respond much better to positive feedback and rewards, especially if the reward is a bit of food.
Once you implement the above guidelines, you will realize that your Beagle is enthusiastic and very capable of being trained. As a rule, the basic training like potty training beagles, training them to sit, stay, and come on command will be much easier with these guidelines.
Beagles are known for being slow to house train. Potty training Beagles can be very frustrating. Some learn in a matter of days where others may take weeks. Again, patience, consistency and positive feedback are your allies.
Another thing to remember when training your Beagle is that they are scent hounds.
What does this mean to you? It means that they are easily distracted be smells. Once they get distracted by a smell it can be extremely difficult to get their attentions back. Because of this you may want to start your training inside of your house, especially with a young puppy. This will help minimize distractions while training them.
Finally, training Beagles can be very frustrating if you don’t know what you are up against and how to deal with the Beagles’ character traits. If you follow the above guidelines in your training you will have a happier relationship with your dog and your dog will be easier to train.
