Re: Barking on chain

All you have in a dog is genetics and training or said a mother way is the environment that the dog is raised in. If I have a barking problem I look at how consistent I am at training. If that does not work I look at the dog. There are to many good bred dogs to spend a lot of time on one that is not...

Re: Clone

When they cloned mules from one that won most of the time in races, of the three clones none were like the winner that they hoped to get. So was it training and enviroment or were the clones not like the original. Maybe there was something missing? It is truly hard to reproduce what mother nature do...

Breeding like to like is a good thing to do to reproduce good dogs. I have breeding dogs for several years to breed a ultimate bobcat dog. That said we all have our on opinion as to what that should be because of where and how we hunt. I hunt the Northwest now mostly in Oregon west and east side bot...

Re: Lion Hound Trainer Advice

There are no short cuts in training a hound. Just a lot of hours and foot miles with your dogs. Looking back after many years you will see you were the most important one that was learning not your dogs. Dewey

Re: barn cat's

All that you have with dogs is genetics and training. If you understand the dog and training you can have the dog doing whatever you want it to do. If you have a trashy dog that is either genetics or a training problem coming from a handler that is inexperienced or hunting with other trashy dogs. I ...

Re: Az High desert

Cold trailing is a is a expression of what we thing is going on as hunters. I think we understand it very little. AS you may think, I feel there is a lot to learn from service dogs training that are use for things other than trailing game animals. I feel most dogs can smell about the same what makes...

Re: Question for experienced bobcat hunters

When I have hunted bobcat in juniper country most hounds will tree. Locating and treeing with other dogs is a different thing. Have seen a lot of dogs that tree great when in a pack[ mostly registered walkers] but could not locate a bobcat on there own. When I hunted lion and bear with my hounds the...

Re: Oregon cats

It's just color maybe or maybe not? I have seen cats caught in NE California that were dark with a brown belly well spotted that looked like a western coast cat and I have seen them from the coast range that look like a eastern Oregon cat. Most of the time bobcats will look alike from a same area. I...
