I am collecting my Blue Tick Beagle puppy in 4 days from the breeder. I have fostered a Beagle before but never owned one, any advice on how to start housetraining? This video says they get very attached to their owners, so I want to ensure that he doesn't develop a separation anxiety growing up, any tips? Thanks :)

Get a good routine going of potty breaks outside, confinement in a crate or play pen for quiet time inside and time with you loose indoors but watching.

Restrict access to anything chewable or destroyable when you do not have direct watching eyes on the puppy.

Age appropriate exercise. Lots of free play on soft surface like grass or sand. Leashed walks at 5 minutes per month of age. Not too much jumping in the air or from higher surfaces like walls or steps.

Congrats! What fun. I would say just pay attention to the cues your puppy will give. It took me way too long to realize Gracie would "flood" the kitchen as soon as my back was turned when I was making dinner. Taking her out before she got the opportunity was key. Also I didn't realize puppies often need to poop after eating! Once that sunk in with me everything was much smoother... Just have patience. It takes time. So worth it though!
