Ideal Environment


Jack-A-Bees are high-energy dogs, thanks to the energy levels present in both master breeds which comprise this hybrid. A Jack-A-Bees ideal environment would be a home where there are people who are very fond of outdoor activities such as walking and hiking, and going to the park. Ideally, a Jack-A-Bees owner would take the dog to an enclosed dog park for off-leash runs frequently to allow the dog to expel some of it's inherent frenetic energy. Due to the Beagle part of this dog, Jack-A-Bees are very fixated on scent and will be able to sniff out almost anything from almost anywhere, especially if it is food! They track scents masterfully, and as a consequence it is unwise to let Jack-A-Bees off-leash unless in an enclosed area such as a dog park or fenced backyard, as the dog could easily run away after a scent it is following and be unable to find it's way home. Jack-A-Bees are very sweet dogs with an excellent disposition towards adults and children, although with their Beagle heritage they can certainly be a bit stubborn from time to time. They are very social and socialize easily once they get comfortable with new people. They are high-energy, and can suffer from anxiety (frequently separation anxiety when left home alone). The future owner of a Jack-A-Bee will recognize and accept this and should equip themselves with a good quality crate for the dog to feel safe in while it's owners are not home. A Jack-A-Bee left uncrated (especially a puppy or adolescent) has a high likelihood of chewing household furnishings due to separation anxiety.

Try to take your dog on a long walk every night, especially puppies for they will bark and wake you up.

Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of DogProblems.com. Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.
