This series of 3 short videos on beagle puppy training 101 will show you (literally!) how to start training your adorable beagle puppy.
Beagle Puppy Training 101 – Video 1
Watch expert trainer Melanie McRoy training Bailey the Beagle to sit. Pays attention to how she delivers the treats to avoid encouraging the “jumping” behavior.
Beagle Puppy Training 101 – Video 2
In this video Melanie is teaching Bailey to lie down.
Important points here: Melanie shows you how to use a toy instead of food as a reward. She is also very careful not to reward a behavior that she doesn’t want to encourage. She waits until Bailey lies down and stays down to deliver the treat. It is also interesting to see that she delivers the treat at a low level because she doesn’t want to encourage the “jumping” behavior.
Beagle Puppy Training 101 – Video 3
In this video you see Melanie teaching Bailey to stay. Melanie demonstrates it and then she explains some of the important steps and why she does it the way she does.
A very important point of this video is that when you tell your beagle to do something it should also be clear when they can stop doing it. You don’t want to confuse your beagle so it should be clear, in this case, when they can stand up. In other words, you are training them to stay down until you release them.
Beagle puppy training 101 includes a little bit more than “sit”, “stay” and “lie down” but don’t you worry, we have prepared a collection of resources for you to learn more. Check out the resource box below for more information about training your beagle puppy.
