Why does my dog put his foot in his mouth

My 11 month old beagle mixes has been putting his feet in his mouth for about a week. The first time I noticed it was on our porch steps. This time it is just when I open the door to let him out. I do not know what to do, he will not let me get a hold of his mouth. He seems fine and normal, but the moment he realizes I am getting close he will start trying to stop me. Any advice on how to handle this?

I was going to post this in a similar answer, but you seem to be a mom, so...I hope my advice doesn't offend you too much.

I have a Beagle, and if he started to do this, my first reaction was to give him some good loving. My dogs can be somewhat aggressive, and I love them for their loyalty, but they don't need constant petting. They like attention, but you need to give them their space.

The reason I sd to give him some lovin' is because I had the same thing happen with my Beagle once, but my mom didn't notice it and gave me a stern "no." So when my dog put his foot in his mouth, it was like she did a double-take and sd, "What's going on here? Don't put your foot in your mouth! I'm not sure what he's on, but it's bad!" The more I gave him attention, the more he liked the attention, the more I would pet his neck and back, the less the foot would come out.

As for your situation, my friend, my suggestion is to go to the store and buy him a chew toy (they have little ones for dogs), and give him one after he's done. He won't have any trouble getting it out of his mouth, and the toy will give you an opportunity to help him learn better manners. You're obviously the mn person in charge here, so give him some time away from you. Do some obedience work to make sure he knows what to do when you're not around, and make sure he has lots of prse when you get him to stop.

If you're going to try to trn him (I love trning my dogs, but sometimes, it isn't a necessity), I'd say play tug-of-war with him to begin. Play with his ears, put a treat on the other end, and see if he will work to pull you there. If he doesn't, keep tugging with his mouth shut and see what he does. It's a good trning exercise for him to practice pulling with his mouth shut and letting go when he's tired. Then, play fetch with him.

If he pulls too hard and hurts himself (you want to make sure you're not over-tugging him, and making him too sore), I'd say give him some more trning and start over. I'd give him some more prse if he's learning to stop at the right time.

I have two dogs. Both have their own little habits that are their own quirks, and sometimes you have to just let them be. They are both great dogs with the right trning. Both of them are in doggy kennels most of the time, and they are usually pretty quiet. They are both house pets, and I do a good job of trning them to not be too aggressive with each other. If it becomes a habit to do this, I will address it with my trner.

Thanks for your response. I have been working on teaching my dog better manners, but I am having no luck. The moment I get close he starts doing it, it's very frustrating. I don't know how to trn him or if that would even help. I know it's not something I have seen before. He will try to pull me away. He is a smart, active, playful beagle that I love dearly.

Sounds like a problem with his trning to me. If you're able to get hold of him at the right time and keep him from putting his feet in his mouth, you're going to need to make sure that he doesn't see that as a fun game. Maybe start off with just pulling his paw away, then if he tries to put his foot back in his mouth, give him a little more of a scare. If he keeps doing it, I'd definitely consider getting him a little chew toy to play with. I wouldn't worry about trning him if it's only a small thing. I'd worry more about trying to get him to stop and not trying to punish him, like you mentioned. He's probably not being too mean about it, he just has a problem with controlling himself.

Thank you, this really helped. We had him in a kennel at a pet shop where I was able to get him when he put his foot in his mouth. The problem was, he started to put his foot in his mouth during the walk there. It was so funny, he did it even when he was in the kennel. I let him out in the house and it stopped, but then I had to take him back to the pet store to give him his ball. I couldn't bring him home because there were other dogs there. When I picked him up at the pet store, he had his foot in his mouth agn. I really think that he has the problem because when we have company over and I leave him outside, he will come into the house and want to go for a walk. I let him out and then put him in his crate where he is not as excited to get out and I put on a leash. I
