We are moving in a few weeks. How will our beagle react to the move? Help?

Will she have accidents in the house or run away to the old house?

I'm sure if you keep her busy and make it fun for her she'll get used to it by the 2nd week tops.

Try some new toys an dtreats :)

You may want to keep her confined by crating her or something for a short time after you move until she has figured out where it is ok to go to the bathroom. She's used to going in a particular area so a new area with new smells and sights may be confusing for her at first. If she's already reliably housetrained it shouldn't take more than a week or two before she figures it all out. If you have a fenced in yard at your new home make sure there aren't any holes she can escape through and she can't dig under the fence, as she may try to escape and return 'home' if shes left alone in the yard to begin with.

a fenced in yard or just a few acres of fence would be safe... Beagles could dig under it though so you could myabe put concreate like on the line where the fence goes to the ground...

A crate would also work...Also try letting the dog outside while YOUR out supervising her and putting her back inside when it gets dark or when you would like to come back in... Try collar Ids and all incase she DOES run away or even a Micro chip... Wouldnt hurt to try and keep her busy with new toys and all but I will doubt it... Watch her very closely because she just might slip away from you, Be very careful and play with her in or out side :)

You should expect to retrain potty rules as if she were a puppy.
If you keep her well exercised it will keep her calm and less likely to become anxious.
She should have some kind of fence to keep her safe.

Radio and invisible fences can work with any dog. put the time into training first. Before she wears the collar, you should put up flags and boundary train, always on a long leash, with rewards for staying inside the flag-line. When she understands it's beneficial to stay inside the flags, turns away on her own, then add the collar with covered prongs(elec. tape). Go over boundary again so she connects the sound and flags as a reminder to stop. Last is to remove cover from prongs. At this point you have to "allow" a mistake while on the lead so you can control her and keep her in the fence-line.
Don't let her loose until she understands her boundaries and is willing to stay inside them.

You may have no problems at all. As long as you are there with your dog, they may remain calm and not miss a beat. But the best thing to do is keep an eye on the dog , take the dog for walks around the new home often. The biggest problem is that dogs get out of their yard and get lost because they do not know the area. When you let the dog out in the new yard, go out with them and watch them, maybe even keep them on a flexy or something and talk to them to assure them that everythign is fine.
