Its always fun to teach
your beagle puppy something new.
Keep the games simple and start them when your puppy can pay attention longer.
Usually this happens about
3 months of age.
We started with a game of touch it.
We got a stick and painted a dot on it.
Then whenever our puppy touched the
dot, we clicked and gave him a treat.
It was a fun game and he loved it.
We also started a game called find it.
Take a treat and hide it. Let your
beagle puppy use his nose to find it.
Once your puppy finds the treat,
click. Its a good game and its a
whole lot of fun. Your beagle
puppy will love playing this game
and using his nose to find things.
My aunt taught her beagle to find things
and drop them in a treasure chest. She
would click and treat whenever her dog
One of the great things about games for beagle puppies
or older beagles is that it keeps them from getting bored.
By creating games that use their sense of smell.
Here are some more fun games you can try
Catch me if you can helps teach the come command. With two people sitting on the floor about 10 or 15 feet apart, one person holds and pets the pup while the other calls him Snooper, Come! in a happy voice. Use the puppys name to reinforce his recognition. When the pup comes running, give him a giant bear hug and lick of smelly liver. Repeat back and forth several timesdont over do it.
The missing-toy caper is another favorite, since Beagles love to solve problems. Start by placing one of his favorite toys in plain sight and ask your puppy Where’s your toy? and let him take it. Repeat several times. Then place your puppy safely outside the room and place the toy where only part of it shows. Bring him back and ask the same question. Praise highly when he finds it. Repeat several times. Finally, conceal the toy completely and let your puppy sniff it out with that flawless scenthound nose.
