Hello all,
I am at least a little comforted to know I am not alone. We rescued, our approximately 2 year old Beagle, Aja, about 6 months ago. It is unbelievable to me that she is still not trained. I am getting ready to throw it in and see if wee wee pads will work. We love her so much and she is so sweet but, she simply will not train! We can take her out for a mile walk only to have her come back in a pee or poop in the house. I don't get it. I know Beagles are hard to train but, we have used a lot of discipline....she'll even "ring the bell" when I get her leash to take her out. However, she will NOT let us know in advance if she needs to go out. In addition, as stated above, going out does not guarantee she will not pee as soon as we get back it. I have paid lots of money for help...which has not worked at all. Please .... any ideas?

Yes, beagles can be tough to train especially for housetraining. I think one of the issues with the beags that come from shelters is that they probably have been thru 2-3 different homes and rules. They had whatever rules applied when they were puppies, then different rules/situation at a house, then turned into the shelter and left in a cage where they probably learned to just pee in their kennel. Molly was my worst for training, I would actually cry at times because I would spend a half hour in the yard trying to get her to pee, finally give up and come in the house and she would pee in the house. I finally saw a good show called It's Me or the Dog and I was inspired. Molly peed in the house and I soaked some up with a paper towel and quickly took the towels told her PP outside and got her right out. I repeated that a few times and when she finally peed outside I praised her like there was no tomorrow. Some dogs just won't pee on a walk, they wait until they are back in their yard. I have two that do that. The real key is the praise when they do go outside, not the scolding if they have an accident.

If you use Facebook there is a very active beagle group called I Love Beagles, and I know the would be happy to give you ideas and support.

Good luck and thank you so much for trying so hard.
