Spend more time in the woods, even if you have not trapped a raccoon. This provides a transition for your coon dog to begin searching for raccoons on his own and affords you a chance to train him to run only raccoons up trees. Sooner or later, your coon dog will pick up the scent of a squirrel or other animal and call you to a tree that does not have a raccoon. Walk over to the tree and inspect it to make certain there is no raccoon. If there is not, tell your coon dog "No" in a firm voice, then walk away without reacting to the tree. The coon dog will quickly distinguish between treeing a raccoon and getting rewarded versus no reward for other animals

Read this on a website. Wondering if anyone has just ever tried telling there dog no and walking away and it worked. I doubt it but was just curious.

Never worked for me. You need to woop him and send him on. Just remember to rub him up as much as you woop him when he trees straight
