I appreciate any help and thoughts anyone can provide.

I have a seven year old beagle and I've decided to turn him from a backyard beagle to a hunting beagle. We're into this experience roughly three months and so far I think we are doing alright. If I jump a rabbit he'll give chase and with more time in the field I do think his tracking will improve. My concern right now is that he sticks close to me (within 20 yards) and doesn't go out-of-sight looking for rabbits. Once I jump one he'll chase them wherever they go but while we are walking he sticks pretty tight. I fear he relies on me and I want to make sure that doesn't continue or learn when to stop/prevent that behavior.

My second question is about pack hunting. I've only been able to get him out once with other dogs and again he only hung around me. Also, I'm not sure how often I'll get him in a pack but my hope is once a month. Do you think the pack hunt will come in time and is there anything I can do to help?

Thanks for any help and information.
