5. The moment that your Beagle obeys you, immediately praise him (Good sit!) and give a treat. Importantly, reel in the leash so that as soon as your Beagle is in position, so that he cannot physically rise. Do not make the leash so taunt that he is aware of this restriction; but rather, this will be used in conjunction with the other components.
6. In a calm voice, keep repeating ‘Sit’ as the jumping victim comes closer. Calming tell the person that you are training your Beagle to stop jumping on people and ask that person to bend or lower themselves to greet your Beagle. Continue repeating ‘Sit’.
7. As your Beagle greets the person
in a sitting position, give more praise (Good sit, good boy) and a second treat. While you may consider that giving a treat to the other person may work, often it is best if a Beagle’s leader doles out praise and reward.
8. As the greet is ending, take a step backward while incrementally allowing the leash to unfurl. Each step back should equal the amount of slack given to the leash. If at any time your Beagle tries to lunge forward to jump, tighten the length of the leash and command another sit. If your Beagle remains calm, give one final praise (Good boy!) and a final treat.
You’ll find that if you and everyone that handles your Beagle follows these training guidelines, success can be had in 1 to 4 weeks; much of this depends on how often you have a chance to train and that depends on how often a Beagle is put into a possible jumping situation.
