Got any tips on getting my beagle to come?

March 20, 2009 | By Larien E. | 7 comments

When I have my puppy Ben in the basement to play or to train him he stays and comes when I tell him too, but if i put him out in the yard to play and I try to call him he wont come to me. He's getting a little bit better the more time he spends out in the yard, but when its time to come in he wont come. Does anyone have any tips on getting him to come to me? I've tried luring him with treats and toys and calling him but it doesnt work and sometimes I have to chase him and catch him because I cant wait around all day until he wants to come in.

i have had to use a halter to teach my buster his lessons it seems to help him keep on task so now when he has his halter on he knows it is time to pay attention. i hope this helps

I put in two cable runs for my new Beagles...one is 100 foot and the other 200 foot long (dog trolleys if you prefer) made from hardware store components, not the cheap ones you can buy premade for dogs. The two of them come when I use the term "gravytrain" since I use that when it is time to eat. But Clyde will come when called usually, Bonnie is still reluctant sometimes, but she will come to her name when my fiance calls her. Definately you want a fenced in yard, a cable run or dog kennel run for your beagles, they will wander off on you following their nose, and they may not come back. Also I would recommend getting them microchipped as well, in case they do take off you can be contacted then to come and get them out of jail. The best bet though as I mentioned above, definately a fence or cable run. I use the game fetch too and use their names when they return the object to me, this reinforces them to come to you when called by name.
