beagle training

I have a 4 month old beagle I'm wanting to track. I him trail hog dogs but he's over excited and won't stay on the trail scent he just runs everywhere. He still finds it as he's got a good nose but how do I keep him on track?

Lightbulb Sugg: Buy a couple.

at just 16-WO, there are many other things that need to be taught to her, & that she needs to learn - ATM, she's too young to run a track solo - start her on other scent games, sure!,
but don't ask a baby to trail, she'll only develop bad habits.


in a few months, when she's well-grown & has some manners, i'd couple her to an older dog who trails well, & let her learn from the hound - not from a human, who can't teach smelling skills.
Just be sure she's either spayed [preferably B4 6-MO, to prevent breast cancer] or NOT in estrus if she's still intact, B4 coupling her. // U don't want a young F in her 1st heat getting into a quarrel while tethered to another dog's collar or Y-harness.

BTW, if U clip the couple to a Y-harness, clip it on the side of the heart-girth; it doesn't matter which side U choose, but alternate from one side to the other frequently, so that she won't develop a superstition about running to the right [or left] of another dog while hunting.
U can use a locking carabiner as a ring, to secure her to the heart-girth safely. Slide the open carabiner BETWEEN 2 layers of webbing, so it won't rub the leading dog's skin, then lock it, & clip the couple into it.

An experienced dog can teach her more in 30-minutes than months of solo blundering.
