    There's no better way to increae rabbit numbers than with brush piles. There is lots of advice from game agencies on the net. I've used old skids, cut trees, tires, etc. anything they can get under...

    Best Kennel Surface

    What do most of you use in the bottom of your outdoor kennels? My first three are poured concrete. I added on this fall and I think concrete is going to be too expensive. I'm think of using pea...

    Recurveit;

    Here are my thoughts. It doesn't matter what age, every new experience is new. For example, my 11 month old pup hesitated to walk on an iced-over shallow pond that was thawed around the...

    We had a pretty good run this afternoon. The snow is starting to melt with lots of bare patches. It's only going to get better. Heading to a field trial Saturday and a state hunt the following...

    Here we break our beagles FROM running deer! It's illegal to hunt or track deer with dogs in Michigan. A conservation officer can shoot dogs running deer.

    recurveit;

    Get those pups out for some exercise. That'll smooth some of their hyperactivity. Three months is old enough to start on rabbits, if that's your plan, as long as they come fairly well...

    I'm going to go against the grain here. You might find a better place--pine plantation, brushy thickets, etc.--but rabbits and briars go together. Remember, Bre'r Rabbit didn't want Bre'r Fox to...

    All my beagles, except the two in the house, are kenneled. I feel they are safer in a kennel than tied out. Marauding coyotes or raccoons are my biggest concern. However chains also break. It's also...

    If anyone ever unlocks the scent secrets he'll never have to work again. I've had dogs pounding scent and watched the rabbit cross an opening. The dogs came out and I never heard another sound. It's...

    This is going to take patience on your part, but it sounds like you have been so far. He needs to have his prey drive developed. What was his reaction to the flushed rabbit? Did he bark or chase at...

    Mackbeagle; I don't think running him with a pack once a month is enough. He should be with a pack a couple of times a week. Before I got more beagles, I only had one dog. He learned to hunt alone....

    I don't mind a dog that "checks in" once in a while--I could do without the barking. It sounds like a confidence issue. Give him time. Prey drive will solve the problem.

    Just take time with her. At this point, bonding/confidence is more important than running rabbits. She's already showed you that she can do that. If she's inside, lay on the floor and let her explore...

    I agree. I run my seven-month-old pups with their mother and also with other older dogs. Older dogs help teach the younger dogs all Mr. Cottontail's tricks and help keep them on the track. I also run...

    Lane;

    I'm no expert, but I think some traits are built in. I have three pups from the same litter. My two males started barking track at around 13-14 weeks. I have "run" them every day since they...

    Lane;

    Thanks for the input. Most people are not interested in competition dogs; that would not be my choice for training. I was just thinking lots of guys just don't have the time to spend to get...

    Boots barked on her first track/find today. She just started out different; more hunt and less play. I think the wheels are finally starting to turn. Bitch is straight Bredemeirer breeding; sire is...

    When to Introduce the E-collar

    I have two hard charging, prey driven 18.5 week-old beagle pups. Most of the time they mind very well; that's a good thing. When they are on a track, it's a different story. I usually can't get them...

    Starting Beagles for Pay

    My pups just turned 17 weeks yesterday. I have been running them every morning and most nights, except when raining or too hot, sinse they were eight weeks old. It adds up to an hour to an hour-and-a...

    Oldhound;

    Thanks for the advice. We tried the garden and a tame rabbit tonight. She caught the rabbit--my fault. I didn't think the set-up through. On the upside she was very agressive with her...

    Training a beagle that learns slower

    I have three litter mates--two males and a female--that just turned 16 weeks. One male barked track at 13 weeks, the other a few days later. They are both running track and opening together. The...
