Dean, I have a spayed female, cut male & intact male, suspect they bark while in pen because they used to be able to have the run of the place when they let out of kennels for exercise, spoiled. Very rarely do they bark when they are kenneled at night, they do let us know when they want to be be allowed in the fenced area in the early morning. I have fox, coon & bear that have eaten the apples from the small orchard very near the kennels. Actually had five bear using the orchard couple years ago. Noticed, young dogs barking at night, older dogs just ignored the bear. Deer are in the orchard some days & most every nights all seem to ignore the deer. Notice most barking in fenced area is when dogs run & play. Al

One of the beat cat dogs I ever hunted with died with a deep infection in his lower back. I believe infection was results of correction with fan belt. Sure not my intention to tell any one how to correct your dogs, just compelled to offer my opinion. Thanks Al

As I have stated before all you have is breeding and training with a dog or person. You can teach a dog most anything if you take the time. I am sure it can be done in many ways. Dewey

If I had a dog that I had to whip on with a fan belt I would not own it long! Kinda like dragging one around on a leash back to the pickup. That's not going Happen anymore either. After a lot of years I have found a couple lines of dogs that take very little training to get a good handle on them and make it very enjoyable to hunt them.

This is an interesting topic. In other working dog applications I have observed many of the same corrective actions offered above:

1. breeding for a more balanced dog thereby achieving greater biddability and a natural resting character.
2. proper management, corrections need to be consistent and above all impressionable.
3. consistency, verboten behaviors simply should not be allowed.
4. making it rain. This was a term I learned from Dick Staal. He discovered through observation that when it rained the dogs were quiet. Similar to the statements made above by those who in effect "make it rain", he achieved success in a very similar way.

I comment on this mostly due to my interest in this subject (I don't care for noisy dogs) but I am interested in management of various behaviors irrespective of the breed. Also, I comment due to piqued curiosity given the similar management techniques that are applied to hounds just as they are with other working dogs.

Nicole had two suggestions that should be considered.

Water is one of my favorite deterrents. The garden hose is ready if the dogs decide to get yappy. A little spray down and they head for their house. Doesn't work with the lab though he gets all wound up to play in the water.

Consistency is the other. Or following up every time you give a command to be quiet. I sometimes get lax with this but try not to. The dogs respect my voice better than any others. I also have a broken ax handle that I bang on a pine tree that seems to convey the message. They know the next step is the water coming out. :|

I do not know who I feel more sorry for, you or the hound. There is better ways then using violence.
