Breaking a Beagle of Chasing Rabbits
Breaking a Beagle of Chasing Rabbits-Yes, a dog that is beagle and foxhound can be broken from running rabbits at night. When you know him to be running a rabbit call him off, (if he will call off, and if not catch him when he quits it, and comes back to you) then give him a light scolding, and a little whipping. The next time he gets after one double the dose, tec. The temperament of your dog has much to do with how hard to whip him. If he has a timid nature it will not require so much sever treatment. But if he is sullen, contrary, it will take lots of it. Keep at him steady; don’t skin any of his rabbit chases. I know of a full blood beagle that is a first class coon, skunk and opossum hound, and will not “holler” a rabbit at night if all the other dogs in the country were after one. The beagle has a better nose than the foxhound, which is an advantage.
