5.0 out of 5 stars How to train your beagle (or nose with legs)!, 14 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: When Pigs Fly!: Training Success with Impossible Dogs (Kindle Edition)
I bought this book on the kindle app after I saw it recommended in a thread on training unruly beagles after a frustrated google search. We have had Dexter since he was a 6 month old pup and he's now 13 months. He learned some basic commands and housetrained relatively quickly but his leash walking, recall and general behaviour in a crowded or stimulating environment left a lot to be desired, despite some sessions on socialisation with our local dog trainers and pack walks. He didn't respond to the techniques they taught (if anything it seemed to spur him on in his pigheaded ways). I read this book in 2 days and even with a few days of implementing the shaping behaviour and clicker training, I just felt I had to leave a review to say THANK YOU SO MUCH JANE, I was close to giving up on my beagle this week!

We had already invested in a clicker when we got him, but not conditioned him to it or used it consistently enough. The book makes great sense and really gives you a good insight into your dog's way of thinking. I feel a lot calmer and less frustrated with him now I can see why he does certain things (even if they are still annoying). He is already walking better on the leash and behaving better around the house.

If you can't train, manage! What a great mantra. :) If you are having difficulty with training your dog, this book is HIGHLY recommended!
