Ways on How to Teach a Beagle to be Calm in Your Command

How to Teach your Beagle to be Quiet on your Command


Beagles are vocal dogs. They like to express their feelings by barking and whining. And no matter how much we love a dog, we often get frustrated by their constant barking. This might make you wonder, can beagles be quiet?

Beagles can be taught to be calm on your lead. However, it is necessary to understand that it is sound in nature. While you can control their barking, you cannot completely prevent your dog from doing so.

So I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like a switch to turn on their barking. While you can't have a key, you can train a beagle to be calm on your lead. I know this sounds impossible, but believe me, it works.

things to remember

Before moving forward, it is necessary to keep in mind a few basic rules while teaching a dog to be calm:

1- Screaming is not a solution

If you're yelling at your dog while he's barking inappropriately, it looks like you're joining in too. So do not rush. Just make sure you don't yell at them.

2- Make it fun

Don't forget to have an optimistic approach to the training session, because optimism can make all the difference.

3. Consistency is the key

Whether it's training your dog or achieving a goal, all that matters is how consistent you are.

4. Ignore until normal

Your dog can be cranky at times, and to get your attention, he might bark a lot. Be patient and just ignore them. Don't even look at them or get close to them. Alternatively, if you give them the slightest bit of attention, you will make them bark even more.

Finally, when they are tired, they slowly retire to rest, here you can show a little love by giving them their favorite food. Slowly, they realize that silence can get rewards, which will eventually have a positive effect.

Teaching "Quiet" Driving

Owning a beagle can bless you with some of the happiest days of your life. You can always go back to your dog's warm embrace and hug after a long, tiring day.

They often warn us if they sense danger. But if your dog is making a lot of noise, it's time to fix him up and teach him to calm down when you tell him to.

Step 1: Prepare yourself

Before you start teaching them, make sure you are well prepared for this and decide things beforehand. You have to understand what makes your dog bark and write it down.

Step 2: Get them to talk first

This may sound a little strange, but to make your dog calm and obedient, you have to make him bark at your command.

Find out what makes your dog bark right away. For example, it could be the sound of your car, the doorbell, or the notification sound from your mobile phone. By understanding this, you can command them to "talk" and reward them when they do.

Practicing this for a few days can help your dog analyze the situation and bark on your commands. You have to keep trying until you see the change.

Step 3: Teach them to be calm

Now that they have mastered the technique of listening to your commands and barking, it is time to teach them to be calm. This can be difficult, but with patience, you can do it too.

Start with a 'talk' command, which will cause the dog to bark, then suddenly a 'quiet' command to which the dog may not respond quickly or even ignore it. Then, by offering their favorite reward, they will calm down, and once they have calmed down, don't forget to praise them and show some love.

This will help them understand that your compliance with your commands can earn them rewards as well.

Step 4: Distractions to win

Once you start following the instructions above, your dog falls into line and now responds to your commands accordingly. Now is the time to bring in some distractions and see if they can still respond to your command by having anything to distract them.

It could be something, a sound, or even a guest you called at home. Distractors can be anywhere. If you take your dog for an evening walk, he can be distracted by seeing or hearing anything.

This is the time to revitalize your "quiet" leadership skills and make sure they obey you without any hesitation.

Step 5: Eliminate Candy… Gradually

Rewards can be an excellent source of motivating your dog to obey your commands. But overfeeding your dog can lead to many health risks. All the extra pounds can strain your dog's joints, and it's always a good idea to keep a tab of your pets' calories. In the end, you may want your dog to obey your commands even without rewards.

Training, grooming, and socialization are some of your dog's central needs. It may seem very confusing at first, but it is a huge responsibility and requires a lot of consistency. A step-by-step process that inculcates good behavior in your pets. A well-trained dog can be a blessing.
