I tried the litter box idea and no matter what type of litter we tried, it ended up all over the place. Dogs don't use their paws in a dainty way like cats do. Instead they dig with all their might and unfortunately that means litter goes all over the place withing 100 ft or so of the box. Perhaps I did something wrong, but I sure didn't find it possible to do it with a Beagle. Maybe a chihuahua or something petite, but certainly not a digging Beagle. Have any of you been successfull with a beagle?
