    Help on dog training please.

    We have a 8 month old named Dug, and we also have 3 kids that are 3, 6 and 9 years old. We are trying to train him as a family but need some
    guidance on discipline. He is very stubborn that I know is common but he gets on the kitchen counter if we not looking, how do you curb this
    without smacking his butt? We have gone through more shoes, wifes underwear, clothing, straps off the bbq and anything else he can get ahold.
    His newest feat is opening the door into the house and garage by opening the doors because we have the lever handles, pretty smart dog. We will be replacing the door handles I guess. Our kids love him to death and he is great with them. We will get him neutered right away but not sure how that will affect him. We have talked about more than once about finding a new home but every night he falls asleep on the kids bed we fall in love with him again when we put him in his crate. Is there any books recommended, not much for dog trainers where I live. Just find it hard when he
    does something really bad not to punish him or tap his but. Thank you for any help. Shad

    Dug sounds like a very intelligent beagle! Beagles are very affectionate but their noses tend to rule over common sense. They do love to chew. Maybe you can put his toys away from your things and play with him with the toys. Give him some of your old socks to chew on and play with. My dog chewed through an electrical cord and got shocked. She doesn't go near electrical cords anymore. Be patient and he will calm down. Do you have a crate to put him in when he behaves poorly? Be firm and loving with him. I think maybe he could be bored too. Be patient, he should grow out of it. Good luck.
