How old do you start training your dogs?
Dear beagleboys,I usually raise my own puppy but I got a dog from a older man about 2 months ago he said she use to hunt and she was to fast for his pack so his wife turned her to a pet. Now I have her how can I get her back in to hunting? I noticed that when I take her with my dogs at first she stayed by me and wouldn't go with them. But now she's starting to go a little with them she will not use her nose or bark at all. But she will sight Chase all day long. so to me it shows she has interest in the rabbit. Any idea if I could get her running at her age.she is around 4 years old. Thanks for your time I love watching your videos keep up the great work.
Hi again Jesse...One of the questions I had mentioned some time ago is how you manage to never lose a dog. I know you have the GPS collars so you know where the dog is. My question is let's say you're snowshoe hunting and one of the dogs loses the rabbit way out....let's say a mile away...and then perhaps separates from the pack and then locates another rabbit which perhaps take him even farther away....now...if the snow is 2' high, while you may know where he is, how do you get close enough to make a shock effective so he knows where to respond to....even if you could send the shock signal from a great distance, the dog would have to know where you were via your voice carrying the distance to even know how to comply with the command....What do you do? Thanks.
I have a couple unrelated questions. I don't hunt (I graduate college in a year and I hope I can get into it then) but my dad did in the 70's when he and my late grandpap hunted rabbits with hounds of their own. Dad told me that occasionally his dogs would sniff out a pheasant if there was one and either flush it or circle it like a rabbit with a safe ground shot. My first question is would you use beagles to go on an occasional upland bird hunt (ruffed grouse, woodcock, snipe, pheasant, quail, etc.)?
My other question involves safety. I've heard and read horror stories of people's hounds (beagles, coon dogs, cougar dogs) that get killed and eaten by wolves out in MN and WI. In NE US I know we have coyotes in some parts. Do you think coyotes would be a danger to beagles while they're ranging out on quarry, especially if they are 10" and 12" beagles that my dad loved to use in thick forest?
So I've seen your videos and I've seen how you train your beagles on how to hunt rabbits. Let's say I have successfully train my beagle 100% (and Im using one dog) how do I go about going to the hills and what not and letting my dog loose out in the hills sniffing out rabbits? How do I train him to come back to me. I don't want to lose him specialy since I don't have GPS devices to see where they are at.
Hey Jesse..... I am just getting into rabbit hunting with my own beagles. I understand how you train them to hunt rabbits but how do you go about training them to obey your commands. Such as coming back to you after the hunt when called and other hunting commands you use while hunting. Thank you and keep your videos coming.
Hey Jesse let me start off by saying I'm a huge fan of your videos and dog work. I recently got myself a female bluetick redtick beagle, loved the looks of your dog Louie and wanted a similar dog she is going to be considerably smaller probably a 12" dog though, she is almost 5 months old and is starting to run rabbits pretty good, my question is what is the best way to introduce her to gun shots so as to not have a gun shy dog come hunting season, should I let her get on a rabbit and start chasing and then shoot a shot, obviously in a safe direction on private land, or do you have a better way. I was thinking about trying a firecracker while she was on the trail. Let me know what you think would be best. Thanks!
just wanted to let ya know I enjoy your videos. I stumbled upon running beagles for rabbit after gaining permission to trap a local rabbit club to keep fox and yote out amongst other things that like rabbit or destroy the property. anyway, I have 4 very young children and after watching them run dogs their. I came to the conclusion I wanted to get my boys into it. then I started a utube search to try and learn a little about it and found your videos. I just wanna say that your work has already answered a lot of my questions and made things easier for me. we bought a female beagle last year about this time and plan on breeding her for the boys so that they can each have a pup at some point. so that maybe by the time they start getting old enough to run through some brush they will be ready to go with dogs.
keep up the good work!
Hey, to start off I am a huge fan and have been watching your videos for a long time. Anyway I got a female beagle a few months ago and have started training her, she has a bad habit of not coming back to me when I'm training her. I do not have a GPS for her yet. How do you suggest I can train her to come to me?

Hey Jesse I go hunting in my uncle goat field. I want to go hunting at my grandparents house because there land go to the woods
Also I don't have a tracking collar and i am scary i might lose my beagle Gizmo.
Hey Beagle Boys I have a blue tick beagle. Is there anything different I should do with this mixed breed? And can I include him in the process of hunting other animals?
