There are as many ways to care for a North Country Beagle puppy as there are to raising a child. In reality, one way per household in general! However most of us agree that when it comes to kids, some things are universal and indisputable. Here are 3 things that a lot of people simply do not consider when it pertains to raising their North Country Beagles, however. I can’t count how many times have I heard, “My North Country Beagle simply won’t listen to me”, or “He simply will not behave!”
North Country Beagles don’t understand English until we train them.
The thing we all like about North Country Beagle puppies the most is the way in which they live for us, the way they focus all they have on us, the way our lives become theirs. In the beginning, they study us to learn our body movement, our facial expressions and our language. Up until we teach them the English language, it’s all they have. If we say, “Want to head out?” one day, “Need to go potty?” the next day, and, “Hafta pee?” the 3rd day, if they DO determine what we desire, it is because we have picked up the leash and moved toward the door with a delighted face! If you want to accelerate his training by three-fold, teach him YOUR language. Select a command for EACH habit and stick with it. Teach those in your household to use the same words and commands, and your North Country Beagle puppy will surprise you at just how much faster he gets it.
A young North Country Beagle puppy’s metabolism is racing along faster than we think.
The more youthful your North Country Beagle is, the faster he is growing, the more food and water he requires to sustain his metabolic process, and the more often he has to go potty. Do not punish your puppy when he makes a house-breaking mistake. These are YOUR fault. The age of your North Country Beagle in weeks and his size determine how frequently he should go out. Once an hour is not too much for a big 6-week old puppy, specifically if it is summer. North Country Beagles love the amazing smells outdoors, so there is no reason to not have him housebroken by 7-8 weeks of age. Right after a nap, after he consumes and after grooming are the essential times, and he will notify you. If he is gladly chewing a toy and gets up suddenly with his nose to the floor, let him out quickly! And whenever he goes potty outside, praise him to high paradise! “What an excellent BOY!”, “GOOD go potty!” and so on. North Country Beagles like our pleased faces, and they will do anything to get it.
North Country Beagles live for our expressions and body movement.
Considering this, the worst penalty you ever need to give your North Country Beagle is a grimace and to turn away from him. You can see his tail fall down and his face get so unhappy. He will learn from the lesson, I guarantee it. But his attention period is just 3-5 minutes, so do not spurn him any longer. Love him up and give him your pleased face again. Physical punishment is never essential. Use constant commands and caring appreciation and he will understand what you want of him before you understand. He will end up being a master of your body language and facial expressions in no time at all.
Naturally there are lots of aspects of training your North Country Beagle puppy well. Caring kindness works just as well for North Country Beagle puppies as it does with children, developing a pleased, well-adjusted and loyal dog for life. These three crucial ideas, used consistently with self-confidence, will start him well on his way.
