What to Know About Beagle Training in Minneapolis / St. Paul

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 Minneapolis / St. Paul 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 Twin Cities 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 Twin Cities!

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!

George was great and easy to work with. We have a rather aggressive shepherd mix with other dogs and we worked through some techniques that help us approaching dogs on our nightly walks. He was patient & offered a lot of tools to help us better handle those situations with confidence.

We can't be happier about our decision to finally get our dog, Fulton, properly trained! Fulton is a 5 year old Olde English Bulldog that is anxious and STUBBORN! Prior to our training sessions with George, I had never been able to walk him because he pulled too much, despite using every type of harness available on Amazon! Now I can casually walk Fully without worrying he will pull or get distracted by other dogs or squirrels! My husband and I thought that Fulton was destined to be stuck in his kennel whenever people came over. His big test was on Thanksgiving when we had family over for dinner. Fulton didn't jump once and was able to be out of his kennel while our family was there! That was AMAZING!! George was very patient with us (and with Fulton!) and took the time to answer our questions and give us suggestions to target specific problem behaviors. Fulton is proof that a dog is never too old to learn new tricks! Please give George a call and see what he can do for you and your dog! The results speak for themselves.

George was really great to work with for the past 9 weeks! We have an Australian cattle dog with bad aggression, and I never thought we would see the change in him that we do! It’s still a work in progress but George was always so helpful and patient with him and very knowledgeable! We would recommend DTE to anyone we know! We have Far more confidence going into situations with our dog now than we did before!

George's knowledge and guidance has had an invaluable impact on my reactive dog and our family, I highly recommend Dog Training Elite to anyone struggling to manage their dog's reactive behavior. Thanks to George, we have training tools and tricks that WORK to keep my dog calm and responsive to my commands. I'm so proud of the progress my dog has made with George's excellent training. I've learned so much and I'm so grateful that I found a trainer who is patient, understanding, and sees the best in my dog.

I have seen the effectiveness of DTE Twin Cities training methods and the positive transformation in the behavior of the dogs they train. George genuinely wants each owner to have the best possible relationship with their dog so that they can experience all the fun activities and joy that dogs bring to our lives. If you would like to make your dog a bigger part of your lifestyle, I encourage you to contact DTE Twin Cities.
