Arrow Hello from North Jersey

Howdy,

Got a new 4 month old puppy named Max, my first dog.

No idea how to train him yet other than reading what's online.

Got a million questions so I'll be posting them over the coming days and weeks.

We're in Northern New Jersey, Bergen County near the Saddle River County Park if anybody else goes there we'd love to meet up for some tips.

cheers!

Welcome to the forum
I recommend that you read up on managing a puppy. I am a new dog owner too and have read at least 8 books plus information on the internet. Search past post topics under the "search" field and you will find a lot of answers to your questions.
Your puppy is adorable.

thanks Cassie

so far we're winging it by what seems to work, and what doesn't

seems most of these books or dog training classes are more human training than anything else, but we'll learn along with Max

Hello and welcome to you and Max. He is adorable!!

What I recommend for training is to start with sit and stay first. Those 2 things are so helpful as you move onto harder training items. And of course walking nicely on a leash is important too. This site might have some tips for you:

Hi TBF,

Reading is very important. I've learned so much from this site, from articles on line and from reading. Beagles are cut from a different cloth and I have found it helps to know what to expect to reduce the frustration. The books I have found most helpful are: BEAGLES FOR DUMMIES, HOW TO BE YOUR DOG'S BEST FRIEND (THE MONKS OF NEW SKETE) AND CITY DOG or anything by Richard Wolters.

Jesse and I start obedience classes today! Can't wait!
