What to Know About Beagle Training in Durham and Chapel Hill

Beagles are small, active companions that are perfect for adults and kiddos. They have a beautiful short coat with combinations of brown, white, and orange. And we can't forget those floppy soft ears that are so fun to rub! Beagles are from the hound family and were bred for hunting with a keen sense of smell and intuition. Today, in many areas of the world, these dogs are still being used for hunting small game like rabbits and birds. These intelligent dogs can also make great family pets, but beagle training in Durham and Chapel Hill can take a lot of work. Because of their breeding history, they make for a unique breed of dog. There are a few things to know that will make training easier. Here are some helpful things to know about the breed:

  • Beagles are typically motivated by positive reinforcement involving food, not praise.
  • They are often tricky to house train, sometimes taking up to a year for complete training.
  • Crate training can keep your dog safe and avoid unwanted behaviors like chewing on household items.
  • Beagles are highly energetic and require sufficient amounts of enrichment and exercise.
  • Their noses control their brains, so they are prone to distractions and wandering.
  • Beagles are friendly and great with other dogs and people (including little kids), as long as you socialize them appropriately.
  • They are pack dogs and do not like to be lonely, so they value the companionship of other pets and people.
  • Beagles grow to be about 13–15 inches tall, weigh 18–30 pounds, and have a lifespan of about 10–15 years.

Beagle Training with Dog Training Elite

Whether you have a brand new puppy or a sweet old dog, training is essential to having a happy and easy life with your pup! Dog Training Elite can meet your beagle training needs with our many training classes and programs. Though our method works on any dog, these classes are great for the unique needs that a beagle might have.

Because beagles are easily distracted, taking them through an obedience course will help them learn the importance of listening to and obeying commands.

Beagles love socializing, and socialization is critical to having a well–mannered dog around other dogs, animals, and humans.

If you are bringing home a sweet big floppy–eared puppy, then training right away will be crucial in starting your new life together. Training can be done with older dogs but is always more manageable as a puppy. Our Puppy Essentials Webinar is a great way to get started.

Beagles are not usually aggressive dogs but get lonely and can experience separation anxiety. This class will benefit those beagles that howl and whine while you are away.

Beagles make excellent companions for military and retired vet individuals. This program will help train your beloved beagle to meet any of your military or veteran needs.

Because beagles are such an intelligent breed, training them to be therapy dogs or perform service tasks can be done relatively quickly. Many beagles go through this program and become great partners for humans in need.

Dog Training Elite is proud to offer training programs for your needs inside your home! We understand that beagles feel more comfortable in their own home and around their owners, so in–home classes are the perfect option.

Training your beagle can be hard work, but remember to have patience and trust that Dog Training Elite of the NC Triangle has your back. Beagles are a smart and intuitive breed, and they will thrive during training when you accommodate for their uniqueness. Schedule an in–home training evaluation today to get started.

This cute beagle pup is excited to start training with Dog Training Elite of the NC Triangle!

Our Balanced Theory

We base our training around the "Classical Conditioning" model (a.k.a. "Pavlovian" or "respondent conditioning"). This includes developing conditioned or automatic reflexes to commands. In its simplest form (after proper conditioning), when the owner says "sit," the dog automatically sits without thinking about it. Our unique techniques ensure our program is a success no matter what behavior we encounter.


  • Empowering Owners
    We empower Owners to train so their dog knows who to obey at all times.
  • Personalized
    We deal with problem behaviors on a personal basis.
  • Environment Specific
    We train wherever issues tend to arise (i.e. jogging, park, home).
  • Supportive
    We support Owners in the off-hours (when training is "not in session").
  • Involved
    We work with all members of the household.
  • Simplified & Customized
    We plan training around the owner's schedule and require only 20 min/day follow-up practice.
  • Continued Training
    Additional programs / group sessions offered after in-home training.
  • Lifetime Investment
    We follow up & are invested in the owner's success long-term.
  • Satisfaction Ratings
    Our high client satisfaction rating sets us apart from competitors.

We help your dog become a valued companion and beloved member of the family. Read what our customers have to say and then give us a call!

Alexx has been a tremendous trainer. She is so patient, easy-going, and direct with her steps to train my dog. She equips me with the tools and knowledge to tackle on each week's focus. I would recommend Dog Training Elite to any friend, family, or stranger. They will come to your house and work with you and your dog.

We could not be any happier with your company and the wonderful loving staff. Our dog Cody is a 130 pound German Shepard that was Mr Man, ruler of all things in our yard, next door, across the street, in the sky… ha. He chased and barked at everything. Thanks to you guys he now has manners. Everyone that visits can’t believe the difference. People that use to be afraid of him, now visit and compliment us on how sweet he is. He just needed some training and so did we. Thank you!!!! Pam, Tony snd Cody!!!!!!❤️

A little over a year ago we adopted two rescues from Saving Grace(amazing group). However one was so anxious and scared of everything, even his shadow, would upset him. We tried training with another company and were told he was untrainable since he wasn’t treat motivated. We were running short on options. Dog Training Elite has given us a way to communicate and bond with Henry and appreciate each other. Henry is a happier pup We are enthusiastic advocates for the e collar and Dog Training Elite. Within hours, we are walking Henry with ease and at a comfortable pace. All of our challenges have been overcome and outings with Henry are a great experience. Henry has moved from being very anxious and hard to walk to a pleasure and fun. Henry has progressed so well that we have been able to go to lowes where loud noises and commotion were triggers for Henry and he overcame and interacted in a friendly manner. We are very excited and so impressed with the program. Henry’s growth has been nothing but phenomenal. Dog Training Elite is outstanding! We are very excited and so impressed with the program.
