Let's Look at the 2 Methods for Outdoor Training
The main idea here is that you will need to choose a method of keeping your Beagle from going to the bathroom all over the house in between the times that you take him out. This, of course, will be for days/time that you are home with him.
The 2 methods are:
Umbilical Cord - You will fasten a 6 to 8 foot leash to your Beagle and the other end to you. In this way, your dog will have the freedom of walking around; however will always be close enough to you that you can easily see when he is about to urinate or eliminate. You will use this method to catch any potential "accidents"; while you bring your Beagle outside at all of the designated times.
Gate Method - Using indoor canine gates, set up an area for your Beagle that is easily accessible. This will be where he stays when home alone. Until he is sleeping through the night and fully trained, he should sleep in his indoor area as well. If you will be setting up this spot in a carpeted room, you can obtain a piece of linoleum from a home supply store to use as a base so that flooring is not ruined.
