Beagle Mix- Bolts! Anyone have shock collar?
We've raised beagles our whole lives so naturally I was attracted to the cute beagle mixed with an english bulldog. Can you say beagle on steroids, lol?
He's bad as all [censored], but the big problem is he bolts out the doors when the kids come in or out or he runs into the screen door til it opens and bolts, slips past us carrying in groceries. He used to run to the neighbors with dogs, but now he looks behind him and as long as you're following, he runs like something bit him in the butt. He almost got hit by a car several times this evening on the "chase" which led me a mile away on foot.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Aside from constantly caging him, we need a more immediate fix as he is in danger when he runs. We did the puppy classes and all of that and yes, we've worked on recall training and all of the above, but he's beagle and we've had similar diffculties with most beagles, if I'm not within reach of you, I don't always have to listen. Beagle owners, I'm guessing you will know what I'm talking about.
Here's my plea...
Anyone have sound advice?
Anyone have a shock collar we can borrow? I honestly can't afford a new one or to fix our old Beagler (non-working) at the moment. Willing to do some sort of trade or borrow it with collateral? Let me know!
