Common Beagle Problems And Issues

Jun 14, 2008
Owning a beagle is not always fun and games. From time to time you will encounter beagle problems that will require you to administer a little beagle training. Some of the best resources for ideas are dog training books written by experts or from websites run by other beagle owners with real life experience solving a variety of problems. Whatever resource you use be ready to be strict with your beagle, as it needs to understand who is in charge in your situation.

There are some classic tell tale signs of a misbehaving dog that some people think is just the dog being friendly but in reality is the dog developing bad habits that need to be stopped. If your beagle jumps on people constantly, will always avoid your touch, grabs things from you and then refuses to give them back without a fight, or constantly barks at you or any company in the house then these are signs of behavioral problems that need to be addressed right away.

Training your beagle to avoid problems should be done in stages and there are things a ten month old beagle can do that a three month old could never think of. These are all done with patience and understanding and, as was mentioned before, the proper way to go about these steps can be found in many very good dog training books available on the market. Your vet can also give you some insight on how to properly train your beagle so that it reacts to your commands.

One of the biggest, and most difficult, training milestones many beagle owners experience is housebreaking their pet. For many owners it can be frustrating because they try all of the standard techniques and still the problem seems to never go away. Sometimes a problem becoming housebroken is a physical ailment but many times it is behavioral. Do some research and find alternate ways to housebreaking your beagle and perhaps you will have some success.

Some beagle problems can be traced back to things that the owner may have absolutely no control over. If a puppy is taken from its mother and siblings before it is seven weeks old then it does not have a chance to learn all of the basic things it needs to know to be a beagle on its own. If this happens then you will more than likely get developmental problems with even the most basic of functions that can be difficult to fix.

Beagle puppies left for longer than seven weeks begin to develop a feel for social order and that can cause long-term behavioral problems as well. If your beagle was used to being the top puppy in its litter for too long then that behavior could follow them for the rest of their lives. It is important to understand how to these things affect your beagle in order to train it properly.
