Hi,

I have a 16 week old Beagle who has no manners!!!

She doesnt listen to other dogs when they tell her off and she is always jumping on them and putting her paws all over their faces, what seems to be her trying to be taller. She is a very jumpy up dog and im forever telling her to get off me, my mums two older springers, the sofa.. the coffee table.... im sure she spends more time on her back legs than all four!

Out on walks shes got no fear and will head striaght over to any dog.... been working really hard on her recall and we are getting to the stage where i can stop her from running over to other dogs on the otherside of the field most of the time.

Im just so worried shes going to push the wronge dog and get herself really hurt, im unsure of how to stop this behaviour. She is getting lots of socialising, the only bad tempered dog she has come across is my mums old springer who has told her off countless times but she doesnt listen and repeatedly bounces back to her and on her.....

I am at a loss of what techniques i can use to stop her doing it???

Thankyou for any advice in advance :)

Indeed this is what i worry about! Iv had her on a long line trailing behind her so iv got something to stand on if she decides to ignore me! :)

Shes stilll very young and is still learning, beagles do like to jump up alot and are very tacitle dogs.

I would use a long line, this way you can teach re-call but have full control and if she doesnt come straight away you can reel her in!

I also like to use a whistle, it gets their attention very easily. Start in the house, blow the whistle and treat instantly, repeat a fair few times and then randomly blow it at random times in the house. Once she starts coming straight away you can then move to garden which has more distractions, and then move to an open field, park etc.

When we were training our beagle way back when! We used a long lungeing rein so we had the ability to reel him in if he didn't listen, we found his all time favourite treat, sausage and used it only for recall we soon found come didn't work but heyar did as soon as he heard it boom dash back for a piece of sausage.

Your wee mite is still very very young and adventurous, for safety's sake do control all interactions with dogs you don't know and if the pestering continues even when the other dog has said enough then redirect your dog to something else.
