Tikiline Beagles - Bruce Gabrielson
Quality Beagle Field Training
All Age Conditioning in our large trainiing area - $7 per day
PUP STARTING FEES. We have a smaller training enclosure to fast start pups but if you want a brace trial hound started, I use the main
training area so no sight chases.
Our rate is $100 to start. Starting means your pup has opened on it's own and will work with its nose down.
Once started you have 48 hours to pick your pup up or there is a $5 per day boarding/training fee.
Perfect seven-plus acre bottomland training area with good cover and plenty of rabbits located in Southern Maryland. Easier to jump rabbits and run hounds here than most clubs.
I am semi-retired and work hounds every day unless it's raining or snow covered. However, you must call or email to see if I have room as I don't take more then 8 hounds at any one time. No pups under 5 months or shy dogs accepted. If it's too shy I'll call and have you take them back. I train more beagles - both hunting and brace trial - than anyone else in this area.
WE VIDEO TAPE YOUR HOUND ON REQUEST, no charge.
If your pup does not start after 30 days, don't blame me and ask for a refund - blame your pup. Lots of folks bring pups here after they have been to other grounds and then expect miracles. Also, I don't accept checks as this has been a problem in the past as well. All hounds worked individually several hours per week as needed. NOTE: Current rates for all age conditioning are $40 per week due to high feed and running grounds costs. I do not work hounds with sight chases. I will work them in the dark or in heavy cover as needed. Also, I have had problems in the past with those who bring hounds to train and then don't show up for weeks after to pick them up. Therefore please read this training agreement and bring it with you when you bring your hound and your training fee.
I don't raise pups.

For the benefit of those new to the net, this page has been here since early 1993 (it is the net's first Beagle oriented internet page). I started trial Beagling in 1953 and belong to a brace club close to my home. If you are a brace beagler in the area, call then drop by with your best for a visit and run.
Beaglers who bring me hounds during the winter months please call ahead of time to make sure I don't have frozen grounds. When the ground freezes pups won't start easily. I also can't work rabbits when it rains hard as they get wet and die.
