Re: What can you breed into a hound.
One of my littermate females would run a deer pretty hard. Two treatments of dc therapy cured that. The other one would start blowing a hole in the ground when she smelled one. I would grab her by the collar and give her a firm "NO!". After a half a dozen times, she quit, without ever using the e-collar.
Now I run them both right over a freshly jumped deer, with absolutely no reaction. I put both of them on two Fox this past season with no reaction whatsoever, even though they have never been shocked or reprimanded for running one.
I had one in the late 90's that I would run down and punish when he ran a deer (no e-collar). I was never able To break him from deer.
So whether or not you can breed out trash running, I don't know. Just like kids, I think they are all different.
