Sorry this might be a bit niche but I thought of this when I saw that Charlotte brings her cute beagle puppy into the office. My beagle is 1 year old but I struggle as he’s so excitable around other people - I’d never be able to bring him into the office. He barks non-stop. Any tips on how to calm him so that I might be able to be a bit more social with him? Also wondering how you deal with dog hairs? Mine moults everywhere and wondering if there are any tips to help with that?
Hi! We were told by so many beagle owners that around the age of 2 their personality switches and they completely calm down and we found that to be totally true. He’s so much more relaxed now he’s a little bit older. I don’t bring him to the office very often, but i’ve found that when i do i need to give him the first 30 mins or so to get acquainted - he needs to say hi to everyone, have a good sniff, and then generally he does completely chill - especially if I have a bed next to me for him. Controlling barking is trickier - we tend to have more problems around other dogs than humans - but i’ve found TikTok full of really helpful advice for training him out of that, so definitely have a search there. Re moulting - no velvet furniture, no dark clothes near the dog! An unfortunate consequence of having a gorgeous beagle xx
Does he bark non-stop when meeting people or generally? Also, how much exercise does he get? Did you take him to puppy classes or any kind of obedience class when you got him?
