Redbone owners ?'s

I had to put my lab down a year ago amd my daughter is asking for a dog. My wife wants a rat sized dog but I won't give in. I really like the redbones and have always wanted one. Can I have a red as a house dog/family pet and still coon hunt with it? I have never trained a coon hound but would like the dog to get to do what they are bred for. Can I coon hunt with just one hound? Will an invisible fence work for them? I live in SWPA and frequent the Erie area. Are there any good breeders between here and there or somewhere nearby? I may be willing to go with a walker also. Thanks for any guidance you can offer.

Re: Redbone owners ?'s

I have a female running walker that runs yotes and lives in the house. she is one of the best house dogs I have ever had. most coon hounds are laid back and easy going from my experience. You can hunt coon with one dog. An invisible fence can work for any dog if trained properly.

Re: Redbone owners ?'s

Anyone know where I can get a pup? Are they like beagles in the sense that they all don't turn out to be decent hounds? Am I better off buying a started dog if I want to ensure it hunts? Only problem with that is I want to socialize it well with my family and child. Also want it to be decent on the lead for my wife to walk.

Re: Redbone owners ?'s

Yes some are better than others and you can get culls. All you can do is try to stack the odds in your favor by researching pedigrees and breeders. Look for hounds and breeders that consistently produce good dogs. Go and see the sire and dam hunt. But it's still not a guaranty.

Scott Perkey near West Newton is a redbone guy. He can help you. I don't have his number. Google his name you will find him.

http://forums.ukcdogs.com/showthread...adid=928434236 Found this on the UKC site. The owner of this pup is a good friend of mine. This pup will not last long on the market. He is about 120 miles away in Ohio.

I have a pair of female plot hounds that live in the house. Great pets, calm in the house but like most dogs will let you know when you get company. As far as hunting they may be two of the best hounds I've ever hunted.

Re: Redbone owners ?'s

I have a 1 year old Blue Tick. Got him at around 8 months for my 16 year step daughter He was an out side dog kennel dog until we got him.Has only messed I the house a few times. And hasn't done it in a few months. Great inside dog... Sleeps with the Step daughter. But I have not been able to teach him "USE YOUR INSIDE VOICE" LOL... I have heard from a lot of houndsmen and women say that a inside dog will make a better hunting dog than an outside dog. Guess they create a tighter human bond with their owner.In the few months we have had him he has came along way in his performance running coon

"But I have not been able to teach him "USE YOUR INSIDE VOICE" LOL.

Many years ago I had a GF who shared an Apt.(converted row home) with another girl here in Reading. The other girl got a redbone which she spoiled rotten(think lap dog ) That dog could ID her car and my truck(GF didn't drive) as soon as we parked out front and would start howling LOL(he would calm down after greeting you). Real nice dog just not for close quarters living. The other girl did move in with her BF to a country apt. in a couple of months.
