Unhappy My dog wont stop biting when we let him roam the house!

Hello! Im new to this forum, but I came here to get some help with my beagle Mickey. Hes a little over 1 year old he is a boy and is a lemon drop beagle. Hes currently almost always in my kitchen with a gate to make sure he doesn't leave. This is because every time we let him out he starts biting and chewing anything he can pick up and run with. I believe he does this because he likes when we get angry. Ive tried training him to not bite things but its kinda impossible, he enjoys biting socks and getting us angry alot. I tried punishing him by putting him in the bathroom for 5 minutes but then he just wants to get revenge and bite things more. I also tried training him by feeding him treats when he doesnt bite something but then he just starts biting it and stops so he can get a treat. My family is thinking of waiting until hes old or something and loses interest in biting everything around the house but I get really sad when I see him all alone in the kitchen while im busy doing school work or something. I could use some help!!! Is it possible to train him to not bite things around the house or should we just keep him in the kitchen until he hopefully loses interest in biting things? Hes a really smart dog so it be nice if he could one day just sit with us on the couch and be calm, hes always so excited (too excited)

I would try getting him some extremely interesting chew toys, maybe a Kong, and redirecting him onto those. Watch him close, make sure he's always playing with the toys, not the other stuff. Also, make sure he's getting lots of exercise, physical and mental. Beagles are working dogs.
Remember that Mickey is not being bad on purpose. He's not out to get you, and he isn't trying to get revenge. He's just being a puppy. Puppies naturally chew on things, and it is the job of the human to teach them what to chew on.

I'm guessing that he never got trained before you got him. He will NOT grow out of it if you just ignore the problem.


Give him some toys. When he bites something he shouldn't, give him a toy instead, and praise him for chewing the toy.


When he bites YOU, turn away and ignore him. Getting angry is not helping, you need to give him no attention whatsoever when he does that.


I don't know beagles much, but as far as I know, they are pretty active dogs. Probably not the breed you should have gone for if you wanted a dog that just likes to sit on the couch. You need to take him for walks and spend some time training him, or he'll get bored and destructive.

Try freezing things like dog ropes soaked in very diluted stock, eg from a cooked chicken. This might help if heís teething and also keep him interested for longer. Also make up toys to challenge him, like treats tied into a towel, so that he is distracted from things he shouldnít chew on. If itís an old towel it wonít matter if itís chewed.

Thanks for the advice!
I have a Kong already and use it but he can sometimes give up even with the smell so sometimes so i have to help him by making it really easy .
We have alot of toys that he likes chewing on but he enjoys getting chased alot, so we started taking him to the dog park so other dogs can chase him.

I try distracting him from the bad things hes biting with other toys but he doesnt really seem to care about the toys, he kind of wants us to chase him with the bad thing hes chewing. So i tried chasing him when he had good toys in his mouth but it doesn't really help.

Anyways, thank you again for the advice ill make sure to try everything with Mickey!

Thanks! I already tried distracting him with other toys but hes not interested in them while hes chewing something bad.

He doesnt really bite me most of the time, only when I go for the sock or whatever hes chewing on. But ignoring doesnt seem to help he kind of just sits there with my hand in is mouth and he isnt even biting hard! . Its just my hand in hes mouth. Most of the time he bites me by accident and then starts licking me to show hes sorry . Its just really hard to get the sock out of hes mouth, hes bite is really strong and he will NEVER let go.

I understand that hes not one of those king dogs that sits on your lap but I want him to be able to wonder around the house. You know, do is own thing while im busy and cant play with him.

Thanks for the help!!!

Thanks Teaswillzer!
I dont think hes teething anymore, he was teething a long time ago and stopped. But he still likes chewing things. Yeah I challenge him alot already for example i trained him to sniff for a treat that a hid somewhere when I say "Find the treat!" Even with those things he still likes biting things like socks after.

Thanks again for the help. Ill try the cooked chicken thing!!
