George will pull like a train if he gets a scent we have been working for a year to minimize his pulling. It has got better and now that he is used to having three walks a day and going for quite long walks that he doesnt need to be so excited everytime he goes out and he only really pulls when he gets the scent of a hare or deer..

We use a houdini harness, thats one that loops under the chest plus a scond strap that loops round his belly so that he cant back out of his harness, he did that once with the old one and we almost had heart failure, his recall once on a scent is zero...

I do practice recall at the doggy playground where there are no distractions so that he at least has that basic idea even if he doesnt always want to admit it. Of course when not in a safe enclosed area he is always on a lead we would never take the risk of loosing him or having him hurt wildlife.

Hehe, ours snores loud too, it cracks us up. And she really does love to cuddle. She sheds a lot so we don't let her on furnature but she loves to wrap around my legs while she gets rubs and finger nibbles.

Same situation here. She has gotten lose a couple times. She doesn't run away, just follows her nose and keeps going. Scary.

You can find no pull harness on amazon and google them to find one that would work best for your dog, they really work for pullers, when you get one it’s amazing how quick that the dog stops pulling, like night an day😀happy happy

No, not a Dodgers fan. He named himself. I had 3 names for him spork, dash, and Dodger, all because they ft the personality of a beagle, so because I couldn’t decide I took the names put them on 3 small pieces of paper and tape them to one of his toys then the one that came off first was his name, hence Dodger became his name.😁

You have to see a beagle in action they Dodger around hunting, and they are very fast ,so they dash, and catching them is hard, and they are a sports dog.
