I just got a 9 week old 13" female beagle when should I get her out to start training?

Best of luck with the pup This spring I'd start looking for rabbits but short walks on nicer days anytime now would be fine. Enjoy your time together.

Naturally, start with commands first, Keep them simple, Down, Stay, Here, Come.

As far as chasing, what Tom says, Spring Time will be about right. She'll be about the right age as the weather breaks.
Just keep her in the bunnies and keep an open mind.

I have had them start as young as 14 weeks old and as late as almost a year, just depends on the individual.

Agree with all above. Give her time to get use to you and her new surroundings. Start with the commands, a well trained beagle out hunting makes things much more enjoyable.

If you can trap a rabbit and get her around the smell that would be a good start. If you have access to a starter pen full rabbits that would be even better. Going out for walks right now will get her nose and curiosity going.

Thanks for the reply's guys I had a Beagle/ Brittney mix and had to have her put down a while back due to seizures any way that's what made me get another Beagle she was a natural I never ran her with another Beagle till she got the hang of her nose and chasing. I'll take your advice and go with it. Thanks again
