Default Dog Whisperer & Beagles

Anyone been watching episodes of the "Dog Whisperer" when he is doing something with beagles? It just amazes me. He deals with them so differently than the other dogs. One of the things I have noticed is they are never "walking" a beagle. He always says they behave and learn better when tired and it's always him or his clients with roller blades and bicycles. Now, I have a bicycle, but I fear Cecil would run in front of a wheel. He shows how to hold the leash, but I just don't know. Anyone tried the running the beagle with a bike? I have never seen one of the shows where someone is just "walking" a beagle. The beags just seem to look at him with that "o.k., I'll look like I know what you want..do a little of it and when you leave, I'm back to being a beagle." Any comments on this one?

I tried that with our first beagle, 30 years ago. She ended up under the front wheel so I swore never again. Bilbo was o.k. but shocked and I was shocked as well.

I don't think that would work with us. Jersey loves to go from side to side as we walk...she follows her nose, not my commands while we're on our walks. I haven't been the best trainer when it comes to things like that. As for rollerblades, the last time I was on those things I ended up with a bruised tailbone and had to use one of those doughnut things to sit on for a week. Our walks are her time...I'm a bit lenient (sp??) with them. As long as she's not eating anything, I just let her sniff and enjoy being outside.

I tend to support his philosophy of these high energy pups. I have never tried roller blading nor riding a bike with Bailey. However, we have tried jogging and I must say he loves it.

It's funny how just about the time I get going he catches a whiff of something and darts off to the side in the grass. With this heat over the past few months we haven't been out as much, but once it cools off a bit we will be back at it. I am just worried about him getting too hot... :biglaugh:

Folks, I need to do something. My Cecil is a runner and this morning at 7 AM we did an acre boundry of running and I am shot. I know it's great for her and me, but I need an alternative. We do the dog park once a week as any more than that interfers with work and the girls don't really like going more than that. I've done it and they don't enjoy it the same way. They run after each other around the pen, but Cecil want to flat out run and for a period of time. I wish I could find some old fashion street skates with wheels and then I think that would be my answer. I'm just too afraid of her with the bike. Brandy is a non issue as she likes only to jog. Cecil is a bullet. Also, I try so many of Cesar's things and they just look at me like I'm crazy. LOL

I noticed that too. Jersey is just fine now, thanks for asking. She gave her momma' a good scare!

Marti...I don't know what to tell you. Jersey has a lot of energy, but a nice long walk is good enough for her. Tonight we were at the park for only about 40-45 minutes before she got bored and we left. It's taking a lot less to get the energy out now that she's getting older. There were times we'd be there three hours and she'd still be going strong.

You had mentioned one time that you had seen an agility course around here somewhere. Maybe that would be helpful? Or maybe one of those sit down bicycles that would be less dangerous to swerve out of her way if she ran in front of you. Does she do fetch?? I bought one of those plastic ball throwers at Ross for a few bucks one time...the ball flies with it. It would be less strenuous for you and she could run and run retrieving the ball. I don't know how any of those ideas sound to you. I really don't have to worry so much about this problem.

P.S. If you find an agility course around here, let me know where.

Marti - I got a pair of those old fashioned four wheeled skates with the stopper brake this past year at Sportsmart. The brand name was Sketchers. My kids tease me that they are training rollerblades - but I have no pride and will continue my safer wheeling. Now, as for skating with the beag????? Wouldn't work with mine - they sniff more than walk. At least I wouldn't need the brake I guess!! Julie

I LOVE Cesar, but keep missing the episode with the beagle! Would love to see how he handles the "nose issue"..... :biglaugh: .....one thing I'm sure about though, he did it well.

:biglaugh: Laughing out loud at the "visual" of ME on rollerblades with Maggie along.... :biglaugh: ...OH MY that's the best laugh of the week! The emergency room nurses would LOVE that story......(as they set my broken arm and dressed my bloody wounds.... :biglaugh: )

HM,
Tell your kids that four wheel skates are NOT training skates for rollerblades. Its like comparing a car to a motorcycle. Tell them they are "old school" or "retro". They will understand that.

Now where did I put my old "Chicagos"???? :cool2:
