How To Raise A Beagle PupThis is a featured page

It is exciting to bring home your beagle pup for the first time and watch it run around and start to interact with the different members of your family and possibly even the other pets in your house as well. Beagle puppies are great family pets and while they are a lot of fun to have around you have to remember that they are counting on your for their care. So make sure you get them to the vet regularly and never assume something is not worthy of a call to the vet either.

When you are raising your beagle pup you need to look at it like a fast developing human baby. You cannot expect a one-year-old human baby to use a computer so you should not have unrealistic expectations for your beagle pup either. Do some research and find out what to expect at each stage of your beagle pup’s development so you know what your puppy’s limitations are.
One of the more challenging tasks to teach your beagle pup is the process of housebreaking. This can be one of the more frustrating things you go through as the results of this bad behavior can cause problems with your home for years. Traditionally people cage their dogs at night and when they leave during to day to teach dogs when it is okay to go to the bathroom but now some experts say this is not going to always work. Try setting aside an entire weekend where you take your beagle pup outside to where it is supposed to do its thing and reinforce that this is where to go and not inside. This may work better than caging.

Beagle pups love to be loud and obnoxious but this is always considered to be bad behavior and needs to be stopped immediately. One effective way of doing this is if your dog starts barking you point at it and tell it to stop with simple one word commands like “No” or “Stop.” Never hit your dog or run towards it in anger as it will cower from you or run and never learn to stop the bad behavior.
It is important to patiently work with yourbeagle pup on its behavioral issues when it still is a pup. If you take the time and patience to work with them when they are young they will keep those skills when they get older. If you properly teach your beagle pup how to walk on a leash when it is young it will keep that skill for the rest of its life and make your life a lot easier.

Do not wait to address beagle pup behavioral problems and do not assume that their issues will work themselves out over time, as many issues will not. If you let behavioral issues linger when they are puppies they those issues get magnified and amplified as the pup grows into a dog and by the time it reaches the adult stage it may be too late. There is a reason for that saying that you cannot teach an old dog new tricks.
