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

Does anyone have any good tips for an outside kennel in the AZ desert ? I'll be moving there this year and have never kept dogs in that kind of heat before. I can tell you 100 ways to keep dogs in the Winter up here in MN and WI but am entirely unfamiliar with doing it in the desert.

Re: !!! The Ultimate Bobcat Dog: Part 2.0 !!!

Goose- I' e made a few mistakes with these projects. The first big one was to keep all of the Lep females I produced for about a decade. Now, if I give them up to work soley on the UBD project, there won't be any there to buy back into. On this project (UBD) I've been hunting almost entirely by myse...

Re: !!! The Ultimate Bobcat Dog: Part 2.0 !!!

Pups are down to 6 here. Another one is heading to MN. Great feedback from the folks that have some of this litter. I've already got UBD 2.1 in my head and plans to make it. This one will take me a few years to put together but it's a slight twist on the first litter. Sure wish I had the resources t...

Re: Az High desert

Thanks, I'm pretty excited for the change of scenery. Another thing I didn't mention. There seems to be something controling the cactus. I noticed that one valley will be choked with cactus and the next will not have very many. I'm guessing there will be waves of this as I travel across the countrys...

Re: Az High desert

Well I went down around in a circle around the Phoenix area. From Wickenburg to Prescott to Payson to Globe and back into town. My family and I were on a mission to find out what area we'll live in. I really enjoyed going through the whole area around Prescott. That is a beautiful place and seems li...

Re: !!! The Ultimate Bobcat Dog: Part 2.0 !!!

Down to seven of the ten. Three more to go. Four will stay. Had to get rid of the black dog unfortunately. He was a top contender but he's sure going to like it where he's going. :)

Re: !!! The Ultimate Bobcat Dog: Part 2.0 !!!

I've only ever hunted greys in llaces where their population has been relatively low at best. I search them out and protect them when I find them. I also do my best to remove any competition from their area and I've even fed them during partuclarly tough winter stretches to keep them from leaving or...

Re: !!! The Ultimate Bobcat Dog: Part 2.0 !!!

TomJr- Good to see you are there. We're coming down next Sat. To drive around and look for a place. I'm all in for fox. Bobcats and fox are interchangable for fun running in my book. I'm setting up a few folks with my older dogs before I leave and will be coming down with nearly all pups. The only o...

Re: !!! The Ultimate Bobcat Dog: Part 2.0 !!!

Mark- If they catch cats out there, I'll be in the $$$ because I don't think there's a whole lot of bobcat hunting going on in that part of the country. There's supposed to be a fair amount of them out there, but it's pretty brutal down in the Sountern part of the state, which is where I'll be. If s...

Re: !!! The Ultimate Bobcat Dog: Part 2.0 !!!

Something interesting to note. I've put a bird feeder into the pup pen and have been watching to see which pups might try and develope a strategy to catch birds. It's something I've watched their ancestors on their mother's side do for years now. I haven't set anything of the ancestors up in this wa...

Re: !!! The Ultimate Bobcat Dog: Part 2.0 !!!

It was accidental, but the first report of any of the pups being exposed to game is in. 1 of the UBD pups and two of the Lep x July pups were on a walk and managed to find a coon, bay it up and when the coon broke out of the bay and headed for the timber, all three treed on it. The UBD pup did the n...

Re: !!! The Ultimate Bobcat Dog: Part 2.0 !!!

If anyone that hunts cats three days a week or more would like one of these pups to try, I'd like to give around half of this litter to interested hunters. To see if you would be interested in one of the UBD pups, please call with any questions you might have and I'll do my best to fill in the blank...
