Hi! my name is stacy... im new here! i have a 5 year old beagle Lizzy who lives with my parents (they wouldnt let me take her when i moved out in december) but she gets to come visit on the weekends.

Lizzy was my Demo Dog for 3 years while i taught obedience classes, and has been a constant companion since i got her for my high school graduation.

Welcome Stacy and Lizzy! I wish you could of seen my face when I read Lizzy was your demo dog when you taught obediences classes. I've yet to see an obedient beagle. Do you still train? I'm sure we can all learn a lot from you and your experiences training Lizzy. Have you found a trick stop beagling?

lol... i got that response alot from my students. wow... is she full beagle.. shes so... well behaved. hahaha
I spent every day with lizzy all day long. she would go to work with me every day... so i blame her being well behaved on the fact that she was never able to get away with anything cause she was never outta my sight... lol.

unfortunately i dont still train.. i loved it.. but had to give it up for a job with little bit better hours that would allow me to go to school full time... im studying to be an elementary school teacher (although a may want to go back to dogs after dealing with kids...lol)

Welcome. I sure wish I could send my four pack to you for a few weeks. They could sure use some training. lol They are not bad dogs, but two are still considered puppies I guess since they are not even two years old yet. They still like to chew and dig and de-stuff everything. None are good about coming when called with the exception of the beagle/lab mix I have.

At any rate...glad you found your way to us. I look forward to getting to know you and Lizzy a little better.

Welcome to the group. I am first grade teacher and I have to say its not that different than training pets. Clear, consistent, firm directions, and multiple repetitions.

Welcome! I'm studying elementary education right now too! Actually, it's my minor, I'm pursuing my major in Communication Studies. I work with kids now for the YMCA and love it. That's awesome that your girl is so well behaved. My beagle/german shepherd Henry is a rescue, but I worked with him a lot and it's been very satisfying. Welcome again!
