How To Prevent Beagle
“Where did your little buddy go? He was here just a second ago, and now he is gone.” If you have felt that way
in relation to a dog before, chances are you’ve owned a beagle.
They disappear and you can only find them when they howl at the tree where a squirrel may be hiding.
Beagles are joyful, curious and adventurous; turn your back for two seconds at the moment they catch a smell of
something and they are gone.
That is why many owners keep wondering how to prevent beagle wandering. There are techniques you can use, nut in
all honesty, besides the techniques you will also need a lot of luck.
Use A Leash
There are dogs you can go jogging with and they will follow you every step of the way; don’t count on beagles
doing that. They may start at your side but if a beagle is not on a leash your running will probably be after it
making sure it does not get in trouble.
A leash is a must when you first get a beagle. With training they can be really good at staying close by, but in
the end these cute pups are guided by their sense of smell, so keep the leash handy.
Keep Its Attention On You
Though their main guide in life is their nose a beagle can be kept close by if you keep its attention on you.
Make yourself exciting for the beagle. That’s why they can stay close to kids, because the kids will often
translate as playtime for the dog.
This makes the beagle happy to stay close by. Fun and excitement answers the question of how to prevent beagle
wandering. It will also make your day better as a beagle tends to get the kid inside of you to come out and
Those things will work but the most important thing you can do to make sure your beagle does not go wandering
without you is to train him. Training your beagle can
prove a bit of a challenge, but it is worth doing to keep it out of trouble and close to you.
Of course the most important commands a beagle can learn are to sit, stay, heel and drop it. The reason you must
teach all these commands is because they can almost always stop the beagle in its tracks. Remember if your beagle
is wandering it may find something to eat. The command to drop it is a must.
Use Them All
All those methods can help your beagle stay close to you. Your beagle is not wandering because it does not want
to stay close to you; it does it because that’s what they were bred to do. They can track game and find it, and
when it chases a squirrel that is exactly what it is doing. That’s why it looks so happy when it finds a scent,
your beagle feels that it is doing its job and is trying to make you happy by doing it.
