Re: Laying out over night

I have a few times. Mostly on depredation. If a specific animal is targeted. Theres drawbacks. Most times if your trailing that late it means something. And it takes some preperation or a good deal of youth for it not to wear on you in the morning. If the weathers bad i will take the loss most times...

Re: Has it always been this hard?

Every dog is different and every houndsman is different. Which is to say the dogs catching game for one person may not catch much handled by another. Probably the reason finding someone you get along with that catches game and hunting with them til your convinced their way and their dogs are the onl...

Re: Help Identifying - Treeing (or Running?) WC?

Theres working beagles that resemble her and as stated foxhounds. Could be a mix. Even though doubtful theres also strains of treeing walkers very similar in mexico ive seen. They arent as vocal or high energy as american bred walkers and lemon and white is very common coloration with muted hound ch...

Re: Mammary Tumor...?

Ive had them removed and had them removed and spayed. I havent had it spread in most recent cases. But i believe it depends on the vet being fairly aggressive with the removal. It seems similar to sheath or penis cancer in horses. Half swear its a lost cause some give mixed reviews and a few have ha...

Re: ??? Tips For Keeping Dogs In The Desert ???

One thing to add. For anyone really. if your south of the mogollon rim forget 99% of the manufactured dog boxes. Figure some other way of hauling dogs. Even the dog trailers with 12 volt fans dont move enough air once it gets warm. Shade and airflow. Stock trailer. Full bed platforms with air flow a...

Re: ??? Tips For Keeping Dogs In The Desert ???

I hadnt considered someone hooking one to a hose. Id think the dogs would eat enough hoses anyone would be willing to bury a water line. Mine is 3/4" galvanized risers inside 4" pvc painted outside and spray foamed inside. This stops any heat or freezing and provides enough extra support t...

Re: ??? Tips For Keeping Dogs In The Desert ???

Water shade air flow face north. Upside automatic waterers can be used in most valley locations with freezing maybe once in 10 years. Doghouses need thermal mass. It gets hot early but dont forget it also gets cold at night with our big temperature drops. Ive built plenty of kennels in the desert so...

Re: where to start in the mule game

The only mule worth owning is a good one. Seems self explanatory. But many people dont think it through or have high enough expectations. If the mule isnt perfectly behaved and genuinely likes you , you are better off passing. Theres many riders that have had experiences with poor horses that still ...

Re: Lion Hound Trainer Advice

A pup will learn from other dogs. One on one or in a pack. But theres starts and stops in every dogs learning. Bird dogs have plenty of practice and fairly simple jobs. Stock dogs have a lot of practice but more complex jobs. Lion hounds have a difficult job and less chance to learn. Trash breaking ...

Re: Pups that come from a dam that died from retained Placenta

Age is less the factor then health. However for the pup your considering. The male didnt vanish. So get the buyers name and contact them. See if the dog is really what it was advertised as and the new owner is satisfied. You may even arrange to see it. This will give you more to go on. I would mysel...
