Hi everyone thanks for visiting the blog. After the frustration of house training, many owners can't summon up the energy to start teaching Beagles to have better manners.
Most people love puppies, no matter whether they treat them well or not. A large number of Beagles that find themselves in shelters are adolescents. Their owners have discovered that their sweet, cuddly little puppy has suddenly grown up and become more difficult to handle.
I’m certain you are in agreement that when these dogs display unruly Beagle behavior they are not supposed to become disposable property.
We can't just hand them over to somebody else to sort out when we aren't inclined to invest the time and energy to raise them properly.
They are entitled to our best shot.
Between 6 and 8 months, just before your Beagle is fully adult, you will have to start obedience training.
Now your dog is about six months old. Just when you’re congratulating yourself that your brand new family member has settled in comfortably and has stopped gnawing everything in sight, she will begin to show signs that she’s quickly developing a mind of her own.
Once before I met with a new client, I had her fill out a questionnaire. One question asked, “Why did you choose this breed?” My client responded, “I often ask myself this very same question.”
This Beagle used to come any time she called her. Now, she’s straying a little farther away in the park and taking her own sweet time to come back.
The completely new unruly Beagle behavior is not a sign that she’s forgotten what Kyla had taught her. She hasn't suddenly begun to show her true character.
It's just one more learning phase.
My dog Biscuit used to blink. That’s what a dog does when he's thinking hard. If you say “Down” to get him to lay down and he blinks before doing so, he's thinking, “Do I have to?”
Here are three dog training tips that you can use to begin to tackle those new aggravating habits.
Recognizing just how important they are is vital if you want to achieve fast results that will last.
The first rule when teaching Beagles to have better manners is to win their attention.
If you are not able to do this you will be battling every step of the way.The Beagle needs to look to you for every decision.
Now you need to energize your dog for successful dog training. It's important that you find out what your dog really likes in terms of exercising, games and rewards. If the dog training experience is fun then you will both look forward to getting down and doing it.
There are dogs who love to retrieve, others enjoy jumps, and some simply really enjoy obedience training or swimming. Find out what excites your dog and help her develop this activity. Get your beagle to associate training with good things.
Prepare your doggy rewards in advance. Food anything at all from a tasty biscuit to a piece of chicken! Cuddles petting and plenty of strong verbal approval. Doggy toys, ball games, chasing etc .Get ready to use dog snacks in your training. Vary the food treats.
Don't give food rewards every time your dog achieves something. Never reveal what the reward is until you dole it out. If the dog doesn't get it right first time then do not give her the reward.
Your third Beagle training tip is lots of practice! You must learn how to encourage behavior that moves the dog closer to what you want each time.You do this by the repetition and the clever use of treats.
