Would anyone have any suggestions about how to get a beagle to stop barking like a maniac while on the lead?

Jack never did this until recently. He does not always do it, but when he does it is ridiculous! I know him well and I can honestly say it seems he is mostly doing it out of excitement. He strikes on tracks too, but you can tell the difference between the 2....

If I turn him around and head home he will continue to bark for quite a bit.

He is extremely stubborn and was curious if any of you had some ideas on how to curb this new behavior before it becomes and everyday ordeal???

We've had similar problems with our two. Rocky is a little worse though, especially if we see a cat or another dog. We've tried all kinds of things but have yet to completely solve the problem. Let me know if you come up with anything!

I'm glad I'm not alone! No advise, because Charlie is doing the same, once he strike a scent.....arrrroooo so loud sounded like I'm torturing him. People on the street look and I got nasty comments sometimes. One time some kids wanted to call the protected services on me!
I sometimes tell him to sit and lay down. Tell him No, but not working well.

Once again, I highly recommend a Citronella collar. Look for my post in the the topic called 'Leash Aggression' for more info, or just click on my user ID to the left and then click View Posts. It really works!

What I've found more successful than citronella collars (I don't like spraying the stuff in my dog's face) is a similar collar called an AirJet collar. It works on the same principle but spurts air instead of citronella. I haven't had the need for one but along with a good training program I know many people who have had great success with it

The citronella collar doesn't spray in the dog's face, it is angled away so it sprays in front of the dog. click for photo
Most dogs will jump back when it goes off, so it's not like they're running into the small bit of spray that comes out anyway.

That being said, the air collar sounds great and effective too!

Oh, sorry, terrible wording - I know it doesn't spray it directly in the dogs face, but I don't like putting it that close to them especially with a beagle's heightened sense of smell. I also don't like the citronella getting on their coat
I'm terribly picky I know!
