Dog Training

I've been hunting rabbit for around 15 years, after starting with my grandfather. I've always wanted to hunt with a good Beagle, but my grandpa never put the time into training a dog. Do you guys have any good tips or necessary instructions for a beagle trainer to be?

Find someone with good dogs and get your dog in the pack. Get that dog on rabbits, lots of 'em. Don't forget to expose the pup to gun fire, gently.

Part of my problem with training them, unfortunately, is that I don't know anybody close who runs dogs. I would have to drive to Indiana to train them with my uncles dogs.

What do you have? Beagles? Dogs or pups?

Do you know an area where there are lots of rabbits?

Have you gotten them use to gunfire?
What about rabbit population in your area?
Are there any beagle clubs near by?

I sent a P.M.

They are used to gunfire, and there are plenty of the rabbits around here. I'm not sure about any beagle clubs...I'll look into that.
