My english is 1year old and she goes with the older dogs, but she barks from the time you turn her loose till the time the older dogs tree. sometimes she will bark upwards to an hour a night it just depends on how long it takes the older dog to tree. I need to stop this and I need advice on the proper way to break this habit. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

When did you start hunting this pup? If you started her to early then the dog developed the habit by chasing the other dogs being to young and clumsy to keep up with them. I really dont know what advice to give you about that problem.. just scold her, thats what i have always done but i started that soon as they would start barking after the other dog... HOpe this helps.

I started taking her with my old female at 9 months old and she didn't bark at all to start with, but the more i took her the worst she got and now she will bark sometime for 30 to 45 minutes before she stops. Any help you can give me will be very much appreciated.

Well you didnt start too early i know that. I would just keep taking her out. Don't give up on her. Try and find her a fresh track and let her run it. I would also try hunting her alone so she has to do the work herself. Maybe she needs a slower pace.

The pup is running the other dogs. Hunt the pup by itself is the only way to stop it. Not part of the time all of the time. I bought a pup off a guy once that did this exact thing. I hunted her totally by herself the next time she was ran with another dog was probably a month and a half. She no longer did it anymore. This is one reason I say hunt pups by themselves. Pups will get into the habit of running older dogs. They just can't keep up on the track. So the running of an older dog gets progressively worse. I hunt pups 99% of the time by themselves until they are two years old. I just got through training the pup from the above statement. I can count on one hand how many times I hunted her with other dogs since september. She was a top notch dog when she was bought in the woods not even for sale. I will preach it all day long hunt the pup by itself. To many people want to hunt a pup with the older dogs. The same problems always occur. You can look through this forum and see what I am talking about. The exact same problems are posted and it always has in it I don't understand I hunt the pup with an older dog. You really don't see any questions on the same threads with I hunt the dog totally by itself. It is better for the pups confidence if you hunt it by itself. you would have never learned to ride a bike if your parents always drove the bike would you. A pup is the same way. It cannot learn to its full potential if another dog is doing the work.

If you can hunt her by herself then do it, if she all of a sudden stops hunting or has real problems finding coon, try putting her with a old dog one that is real old but has no problems. and is SLOW alot of the time she cant keep up with the other dogs in the pack so she runs the scent of the pack and since she always smells the other dog she always strikes on that. so doing it by herself would probably be the best thing. or with an older dog that she can out run

something else you can try is before cutting her loose with other dogs grab a hand full of leaves insert them into her mouth hold it shut till you cut her. It will take a lil while to get them spit out. a lot of times this stopes the babbling over a period of time. But will definetly slow it way down.

a hunting buddy had a pup that would the same as youres. he left the pup on the leash till the old dog was long gone then cut the pup loose, if it was quiet if it trailed the old dog he put it back on the leash. it started hunting close by at first then just started ranging out further and forgot about the old dog untill it opened up. took some time but it worked good luck
