Anyone have a Beagle?

Is it possible to ever teach these dogs to come immediately when called or will they always stand there and stare at you for a minute? It drives me nuts!

They are hunting dogs, so they are programmed to take instruction. You just need to learn how to command them. The poor fellow "always stand there and stare at you for a minute" sure, s/he is waiting for the command ha-ha!

It's after the command though! Me: "Come on!" Dog: *duhhhhh* 30 seconds later *mad dash with tail wagging* I hate it! Now that I think about it, I know a Vizsla who does the same thing.

I think those dogs are all demon possessed! LOL We had one that would literally drag me down the street behind him. I would have my heels dug in and be holding on for dear life. And, nobody could get that dog to listen except my dad. I think we call them beagles but they hear "regal". LOL

I've had two before and from what I remember they always came when we called. You just have to keep working with them until you figure out what command workds best for them. The normal "come" command may not work for them but maybe a different term such as "here" or something will work for them. They will eventually do what you want because they are a working dog and want to follow commands.
