As a result of being bred for the long chase, beagles are intelligent and single minded. This makes it hard to train.

If you have a dog that is territorial, you may want to consider having it spayed or neutered.
At what age do Beagles slow down?
When a beagle is a year old, you should expect them to calm down over the next 6 to 12 months. After two years, your Beagle will never be as hyper as it was in the first year. If you notice that your dog’s behavior is out of proportion to his age, he may be exhibiting hyper.
This can be caused by a number of factors, including: the amount of time that has passed since the last time you saw the dog, or the fact that you have not seen him for a long time, and/or that he has not been socialized with other dogs in your home.
The best way to determine the cause of a hyper, is to see if the behavior persists. If it does not, then it is most likely the result of an underlying medical problem, such as diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, etc.
