You should start at 8 weeks old, be supportive not negative, take them outside every 3 hours, and use a crate.
Beagles, largely because of their friendly nature, respond better to positive reinforcement rather than negative. This means that it is essential to encourage your puppy and if you should need to punish it. When house training a beagle you should reward it when it does something that you want it to. For example, give it its favorite treats every time that it uses the bathroom outside. Do not rub its nose in the mess, but rather take it outdoors until it uses the bathroom again, and give it a treat when it does. Scold negative acts with a firm and loud, “No!” being sure to express your disapproval. However, there is no need to become violent with your dog.
Repetitive motions are great teaching tools and doing something, exactly the same way each time teaches your puppy quickly. House training a beagle can be a quick process if you take it out for walks the same time each day, respond with the same treats, and use the same punishment words and tone each time.
Another question people often ask about how to train a beagle puppy is how soon to begin the training process. The easier answer is as soon as possible. Beagles learn very quickly. This means that not only is it possible to teach it good habits at a young age, but also that if you do not train your beagle puppies early on, they will get into the bad habits you do not want them to have and they will be difficult to break. Do not wait to start house training a beagle.
Beagles like to run and play, and are great for people with big backyards. Play with your dog often to establish a friendship. This will also make your beagle more likely to respond to your expressions of disapproval. If your Beagle puppy knows that you can be its friend it will not want to make you upset.
Remember never be violent or aggressive with a dog. This can train them to respond violently, both to you or toward other people and dogs. It can also make your dog introverted and sad rather than the happy, friendly dog you want.
House Training Tips
One: try to be supportive instead of negative, give it treats when good things happen to encourage good behaviours; to discourage bad behaviour give your dog firm a firm “No” or “Bad”.
Two: Play with your dog often to establish a good relationship.
Three: Start early!
Four: Never be violent with your puppy.
Five: Repetitive motions are great teaching tools and doing something exactly the same way each time teaches your puppy quickly.
Your dog needs to be house trained, and this can be done in a few easy steps, but over a long period.
Dog house training may be one of the hardest training techniques as it is the one that requires the most attentiveness and work. You have to be able to read your dog’s body signals, as he cannot tell you when he needs the toilet. Many people make the mistake of assuming that their dog will bark when he needs the go, sometimes they are lucky to find a dog that will but believe me there are many out there who don’t and accidents are found all over the house!
Dog house training requires a few simple steps, but as I said but they are time-consuming ones. Firstly I would recommend putting newspaper in front of the door, that way if you see him doing an accident in the house you can quickly lift him there, and he will realize that if he needs to go and your not there to let him, he has to do it on paper.
The next thing you need to know when dog house training is most dogs when they need the toilet will start to get restless and start sniffing around, this is when you pick them up and take them outside, when they are young you should take him out at least once every hour. When you take them outside you can say things like “do the toilet” or “do your business” or whatever command you want to use for this training session. Once they have done the toilet, you must give them lots of affection outside straight away. They will soon come to realize that outside is the place to do the toilet and will after some time start asking to go out.
There are hundreds of books available on dog house training all of which use different techniques and routines. No dog is going to know straight away that outside is the place to do the toilet, they have to learn, and you have to teach them (unless you don’t mind accidents all over the place) Oh and don’t forget to scoop!!
House Breaking Your Beagle Dog
The absolute first thing you must train your dog to do is potty training. No, you don’t teach your dog how to break into your house when you forget your keys. Housebreaking means he must learn where and when he may do his business. Besides being substantially advantageous to the hygiene of your household, dogs benefit from having rules and a routine – as pack animals, they look for duties issued by the pack leader and naturally enjoy keeping schedules. Here are the steps to housebreaking your dog
Dog House Training 1 – The best age to begin housebreaking your puppy is between 8 and 12 weeks old.
Dog House Training 2 – Experts suggest incorporating a crate in a young dog’s training process.
A crate usually resembles a cage, with a locking door and see-through bars, and should be big enough for the dog to move around in. While it sounds like a tiny jail cell, crates should not be used to punish your puppy. The idea is to make the crate into a doggy bedroom – someplace where your puppy can play and sleep. He should never be confined in his crate for more than two hours at a time.
Dog House Training 3 – Because dogs, thank goodness, don’t believe in eliminating by their sleeping areas, your puppy will not relieve himself in the crate unless you’ve cruelly locked him in there for longer than he was able to hold it in. Three-month-old puppies generally need to eliminate every three hours, so lead your puppy to a designated outdoor bathroom spot often.
Dog House Training 4 – Try always to leave the house through the same door – the door you’d like your dog to scratch to signal his need to go out in the future.
Dog House Training 5 – Try to take your dog out at around the same times each day. A routine will eventually be established, and your dog will soon know to hold it in until you take him out.
Dog House Training 6 – If your not-yet-housebroken dog is used to roaming freely around the house, look for clues that tell you he needs to go. Your dog may suddenly put his nose down and sniff the ground intently. He may begin to circle an area. Or, he may stare at the door with an intense look on his face. Signs like these tell you to drop what you’re doing and get that dog out of the house. If you catch your dog doing his business inside, rush over and stop him by grasping his collar, pulling up on it, and saying, “NO” in a deep, stern voice. Then take him outside to let him finish up and praise him with pats on the head or a pleasantly chirped, “Good dog!” when he does.
Take your time
Housetraining takes patience and the ability to follow a schedule. Most puppies respond to a schedule because it gets them used to doing the same thing at the same time every day and they learn the behavior you want easier.
You must first determine your puppy’s limit in holding his urine. Keep a diary for several days until you spot a pattern between eating and eliminating. This minus 15-30 minutes will give you the puppy’s comfort zone. This is how long he can hold his urine after he has gone potty.
The puppy will usually have to go after they eat, drink, play or sleep. Most dogs need to be taken out upwards of three to five times a day providing they haven’t drank an excessive amount of water. The best thing to do if you take him walking is not to bring him back until he does potty. Be ready to stay outside until he does. This could take some time. If you bring him back in before he is ready, he most likely will have an accident before you can get him back outside again.
The most important thing is to lavish him with praise each and every time he does the right behavior. This reinforces it because he receives attention and a treat. If you wait and praise him later, it won’t be effective. To keep him from finding spots, close doors to rooms with carpeting or rugs, because they prefer certain area to eliminate on.
Start training at 8 weeks old
Beagles can be quick to train if you begin when they are still young, and in the end, having a well-trained puppy is very rewarding. Before you begin to train your puppy, it might be helpful to understand its breed. Beagles are a small breed of dog similar to Foxhound. Beagles have shorter legs and floppy soft ears. Beagles are trained to hunt and play games. They have a powerful sense of smell, which is often used as rescue and drug-sniffing dogs. Beagles are very fun and outgoing dogs. They love people and running around. Beagles are very energetic, yet make poor guard dogs because they are so attracted to new people. Sometimes this can make them difficult to train, because they are easily distracted and full of energy. Beagles are very smart dogs. They can figure out how to open doors, jump over fences, fetch, but also get into trouble. Be sure to keep food out of their reach because they will quickly learn to jump up and get it. They love food and use their keen sense of smell to find it.
If the puppy does have an accident, use a pet odor neutralizer to prevent any odor. They sometimes will sniff around until they find the exact same spot they went the last time. Don’t use ammonia based cleaners as they break down into urea, which is a part of urine.
