My male (Hunting Stock) beagle is 5 1/2 Yrs. old. The last 2+years he starts howling when he picks up a scent when we are on a walk and pretty much won't stop. Extremely frustrating and embarrassing  My vet suggested Vanilla Extract on his nose. DID NOT WORK!!  Help!! Buddy & I need these walks to keep the weight off! Thanks John#27

 When a beagle is on a track they bay to keep the hunter aware of their location as they chase the rabbit around to the gun. It is a bred in behavior trait. It would be cruel to punish the dog for something that is so instinctive. Enjoy the song, use a walkman to deaden the sound, walk elsewhere if the neighbors are complaining or get a different breed of dog.
