How do those of you with multiple beagles deal with "doguments"? The ones where they make a lot of noise but nobody actually gets hurt? I want to be sure I'm handling the problem correctly, so the issues don't escalate.

I have dealt with the actual fights so you are smart to deal with it before it gets bad. I learned to watch their subtle signs such as postering, circling, hair starting to raise etc. When that happens I use a firm deep tone and tell them "knock it off" and sort of step in to block them. Don't ever get your hands in the middle of them and always keep your voice calm and firm. If you show anxiety it can escalate them. If they do fight, use that same tone and either throw a towel or blanket on them or even water.

I agree with everything MM said plus I look for the tail firmly straight up. Not the usual beagle looking tail. The most important thing about owning Multi dogs (I have 10) is prevention of fights.

Sometimes when I get up in the morning, I feel very peculiar. I feel like I've just got to bite a cat! I feel like if I don't bite a cat before sundown, I'll go crazy! But then I just take a deep breath and forget about it. That's what is known as real maturity.
