I find the most frustrating thing about owning a scent hound is that there is a lot of "surface deep" information online and trainers we have worked with don't really understand much about them other than that they are "food oriented". I have read tons of material online and in books, and have found very little in the manner of training a beagle/beagle-mix as a family pet.

Thanks again for your responses. Hopefully some more people can respond with more ideas.
Well, I'm that guy The training is basically just a loud no and then yell back up along with a stern voice from the time we got her at 8 weeks. Now it is a lot easier to start then because the can't get up on a table, couch, etc at that size. Beagles want to please, mine cares more about being in my good graces than just about anything. Now I will admit to giving her a piece of steak if she has not required more than one no when I am done eating. However, steak or a steak bone is the only people food she gets.

A d as for the positive vs negative reinforcement, for me praise is when I am trying to get you to do something- yelling is for when I want you to stop something.

I have done that with food on the floor as well. I say "leave it" though in a stern voice. I have also done it with the kids toys all over the place because I didn't want her to chew up their toys. I figured if we were going to have a dog and kids in the same house, the dog is going to listen. That is kind of why I made the decision to latch her when the kids were eating because she was always there ready to pounce on anything that fell. Like it was automatically hers. She knows leave it very well now. Keep working at it, you are in charge not your dog, you decide what she can eat, not her controlling your meal time or life
