This is all new to me, as it is my first beagle. I keep her in the house , is this wrong? I have a 5 yr old bird dog mix (little river duckdog / golden retriever) with no hunting skills. He is a family member and Bella ( 10 weeks old) follows him around exactly like a puppy dog. Bella is not exactly a pure bred, she is also a mix. Yorkie and basset hound , both parents are very much pure breds that happen to mate by accident. I have taken Bella on walks through the wooded areas that have rabbit trails. I even have let her tag along with the her pure bred mother who is an avid hunter. what is next?
