Training your beagle not to bite, especially as young puppies, is an important part of your beagle’s training. As with any behavior that you want to correct, you should train your beagle what to do instead of biting.
Video – Training Your Beagle Not To Bite You
In this video (a little over 8 minutes long) you see step-by-step how international expert dog trainer Emily Larham trains puppies not to bite, which will make it easier for you to model the training with your beagle.
Emily uses clicker training but you can also say “yes” instead of using a clicker. (For more information about clicker training, check out the resource box at the bottom of the article).
Important Points in This Video
Note the following important points in the video:
- Seting up your training for success – Start from the least difficult game and then move onto more “advanced” stuff. You want your beagle to succeed and get rewarded because that makes your beagle like their training and be motivated to do more.
- Proper Handling of Your Beagle – This is one of our favorite parts because Emily is an expert at calming dogs and lots of beagles can be sometimes over excited so this tip is really useful.
- Training Your Beagle Not To Bite if They Are “Rough” Handled by visitors or people who do not know how to handle a dog properly – This is another highlight of the video, as well as how to play with your beagle and how children should interact with your beagle.
