Hi there, new to the site but need some help with my 7month old Beagle named Dug. Here is some background. We live in Peace River Alberta and have had our family pup for about 4 months now. We dont have trainers in our town so am looking online for help. We have 3 kids 9 , 6, and 3 years of age. We love our Dug but are having some major training issues with him. I know from the research that they are stubborn dogs but need some tips or where to find some. He has chewed almost everything around including 3 kid bike seats, lots of garbage, shoes, toys or anything we
didnt catch or missed picking up. Our potty training is going okay but he has his spots he sneaks away and goes. I know you dont hit Beagles but
when you find him on the kitchen counter I can only whack his butt and put him outside in frustration. Our yard is fenced in very well so having him outside is okay. He is crate trained and sleeps inside in his crate with no issues. We are busy people and I know we are to blame with his behaviour issues but are close to giving up. I have found a couple of on line Beagle help books but any recommendations would be appreciated. Thank you in
advance. Shad

i had the same dog. until they are a year old and a little after they are wild. your dog is very smart and Dug is going to get into everything. he is probably really smart and his brain is going 100 mph. re the potty training; make sure you clean the spots in the carpet real good to get the odor out. i use a carpet machine that i own. when you can't watch him keep him in the crate. when you are at home keep him on a leash and where you go in the house he goes. if he starts to have a mistake take him outside. since he has gone inside several times you are going to have to curve his behavior. as for jumping on the counter if he is on the leash with you he won't be able to jump on the counter or chew your shoes and garbage. by keeping him on a leash and leading him around he will know that you are in charge and that it is your house. the time to run outside in your yard is good but also take him someplace like a park where he can run. i got this from a dog trainer i hope it helps.
