Default Hello I'm a newbie

Hello there I'm Helen and new to this site. I have a 7 month old beagle called duke and is very loveable but also a lot of hard work. I'm trying to get him house trained which is going not too bad I take him out regular and he does his business every time I take him in the garden I have got used to recognising the signs as he does not actually tell me when he wants to go. If I miss the signs I get an accident on the floor but I do not tell him off I just take him straight out. I would really like it if he could tell me though lol. We go to puppy classes and he is learning but I still have trouble walking him on the lead as he pulls and is so strong any advice would be greatfully received. I'm looking forward to meeting other beagle owners and hearing all your stories.

Helen x

Hi HV,
I have a new beagle, too, but he's an adult rescue. We are struggling with house breaking, too. Just like your dog, mine does not give any signals about needing to go out. I, too, have learned the signs. He almost peed in my car once. Another poster put bells by her door and rang them before every walk. Eventually, her dog began ringing the bell when he wanted a walk!

As for pulling, this should be addressed in your obedience class. I know this is not PC, but I find the best collar is a metal choke chain. My dog responds to gentle pressure from the choke, but not from a regular collar or harness.

Good luck and keep posting!

Jenny

Classes are a big help! The pulling will get less over time. Sounds like you are doing a good job too!

Thank you both for replies, I like the sound of using the bells I must give that a try. I'm sure we will get there in the end.

Keep at it. Sometimes it's very difficult and frustrating to learn each dogs signal or sign when they need to go potty. I've found especially with the old beagles that every hour and the second they are done eating or drinking I take them out. Not fun for me but I usually have no trouble getting them house trained. I do like the bell thing and my co worker got his Puggle to do it. So it does work. Good luck.

Welcome Helen! It sounds like you already have a pretty good grasp on things. Excellent that you going to classes. My beagle mix is also 7 months. Sounds a lot like yours. Only a few accidents here and there, but not completely housebroken. And yes....pulling on the leash. Natty Boh will be starting classes on the 29th. Hoping it helps him too. Natty Boh is a shelter pup. We have had him since October.

I don't know what type of car you have, I have an suv and can put a crate for my dog-so no accidents and she doesn't get stressed. Also you can buy those back seat covers made for dogs to cover the seats
