I haven't been a beagle owner very long about a year and a half. I know beagles bark alot but how do i stop the excessive barking at people?? she also barks at various things leaves, alarm clocks, road markers and stuffed animals. are all these things normal?? can you suggest things i can do to curve this behaviour??

Niko use to bark quite a bit after he discovered his voice around 1.5 yrs. Ya! a beagle quiet that long....I know. But once he did I had to keep telling him NO! in a firm voice and kept at it or SHHH! He soon learnt not to bark at everything. The only thing I don't get after him for is when someone is near the house or fence till I come outside and he has learnt himself to be quiet down once I tell him NO! or SHHH!

Badger discovered his voice right around his one year mark (He is now 1.5 years). I have tried many things but I find it hard to get him to stop without losing my patience. Like Beaglers on the go I find a firm NO or SHHH works also you have to get up and go to where there are barking and claim your space. Right now Badger runs to our front door and barks if her picks up a scent or if the neighbour walks by, each tme he start barking I get up and go to him and claim the space at the front door until he backs down and stays away. The first time I tried it it took me 45 mins to get him to stop now it takes about 10 to 15. I am learning to follow through each time and not give up.

There are times where I have to go see what Niko is up when barking and like Badgersmom.....stake claim to my space. Before, if I never went Niko would bark non-stop. I now can tell him NO! or SHHHH! BUT! if he doesn't stop barking to those commands then it means he is telling me something and I need to go see what is up. Once I have checked the scene and tell him NO! or SHHH! he will shut up. With beagles I find or at least mine....one has to be consitent.
