Beagles can sometimes be a bit of a handful to train. This is mainly due to their personalities which are famous for being inquisitive and highly intelligent. A common problem that new beagle owners can face is excessive or seemingly unnecessary barking from their dog. There are a number of things which could explain this behaviour and most of the time a simple solution will help you to control beagle barking with minimal effort.
Given the choice, beagles would prefer to be in a pack of other dogs that to be alone. Because of this, it can take a while for a beagle to get used to idea of keeping himself company. This is especially true if he is in a new environment which is why many new beagle owners have problems. Beagle barking
could be a call for attention. If you will need to leave your dog along for a while, try to gradually introduce the idea rather than just disappearing for hours on end without warning. If you need to work for a number of hours each and cannot stay home, consider hiring a dog sitter for at least a few hours to give your beagle some company.
Crate training your beagle could help him to deal with the stress of being left along. A crate will become your dog’s own personal space, a den where he can feel safe and secure in familiar surroundings. Although using a crate seems to be somewhat controversial, it definitely can have its benefits when it comes to reducing a beagle’s stress levels, so don’t rule it out immediately without giving it a go.
You could also be witnessing excessive beagle barking due to boredom. Make sure your dog has plenty of toys to keep him busy when you are not around. In addition, give him some quality time and attention whenever you can.
