Life with a beagle is an adventure. Beagles are nose-driven and energetic, but capable of lounging in the morning sun or across your lap as you watch the news. Those things sound relaxing, but it takes work for it to be so. Spending time with your beagle and teaching them new skills is vital to keeping you and your pup happy. Incorporating training with daily exercise is a great way to bond with your new family member. Beagles are a working breed and love a task, but are also known for being stubborn. When confronted with a situation that gets you frustrated, it's best to break away from the situation and reset. Frustration can be projected as being mean and abusive to your beagle puppy, causing confusion.
I strongly recommend contacting a local dog trainer that is familiar with beagles.
