When you see a pair of beady brown eyes staring out of a cute little puppy face, you seem to forget that there are so many things you could do that could hurt this adorable little one! The fact is that we as human beings tend to make many mistakes which harm those around us. In the case of a little puppy, who couldn’t even tell you his troubles if he wanted to, it is even more important that you be careful…
The norm is to prepare a “To Do” list before you adopt a new beagle pup … But in the case of being responsible for another life, it is probably more essential to make a “Not to Do” List! So here is one that is tailor-made for every future-beagle-owner, just like you!
Beagles are relatively low-maintenance dogs. But there are many points for you to consider before you adopt one, like proper diet, how to spruce him up and keep him healthy, and tips on training him. This is essential as your role as provider of all these starts on day one!
Be careful about both parents, so you can get a beagle whose temperament you like. Also you should be careful about health and psychological issues of the pup before you adopt.
Don’t even think about it! Beagles take a little time to be potty-trained. Ideally, keep him in his crate for about 4-6 months before you can adequately housebreak him.
No way! Beagles are one of the more stubborn breeds, and you should not expect to sail through this phase. It requires a lot of firmness and patience. Don’t punish the pup, use treats instead…
During the housebreaking, expect a lot of mess around the house. Your beagle is just a pup and not adequately trained. The best bet for you is to keep an eye on him and take him outside if you see the slight indication that he needs to empty his bladder.
Beagles require some tough yet friendly training. They are bundles of stamina and energy and you will need to seriously train them so that they can become well mannered members of the family.
Always keep the contact details of a good veterinarian who is located nearby. Do not try to treat him yourself. You wouldn’t blunder with your own child’s health, so why take the risk with your beloved beagle puppy?
So now that you know what mistakes to avoid, just keep them in mind and prepare your house for the newest member – your very own beagle puppy – who will fill your house with cheer and love!
