Puppies don’t have bladder or bowel control yet,
due to the fact that their muscles aren’t fully
Generally need to go out more often.
According to the experts there is a general rule of thumb
you can follow, for potty training your beagle puppy. Take the
age of the puppy in months and add one. That will give you
a guide on the maximum number of hours your puppy can
wait until they have to go potty.
According to Tamara Dormer, CPDT-KA, AKC-CGC
and dog trainer at Best Friends Animal Society,
provided by SwellPets
So, a two-month old dog could refrain from going to the toilet for a maximum of three hours.
There are plenty of products available to new pet owners who need some help training their dogs, such as puppy training pads. Dogs Trust recommends finding an area of the house where people don’t mind accidents occurring and where a pet can be placed if owners cannot be there for its training.
If people do not have the time to spend training a dog, they could be much better off getting an older pet, as Ms Dormer explained they are usually housetrained if being adopted in later life.
Furthermore, they need less exercise as they are usually not as energetic as puppies and they also have a greater attention span for learning.
The expert added “puppies have to be shown practically everything you want them to learn”, while older dogs will generally know everything already and be aware of what they can and cannot chew in a house.

We used a timer at our house, to let us know when
it was time to let our beagle pup out. Sometimes
you can forget.
Using a clicker we would also click and treat,
when our puppy went potty outside. As the years went by
and our beagle got older, he would paw at the door,
to let us know, he needed to go out.
Above all, be patient.
