Love the drool fred, and juliesmule Beagles are one of the best to work with although they seem to be a bit arrogant most of the time. After a find, my little cleo does her best royal Majesty impression.

And after a run on a Coyote that was bothering the neighborhood cats and dogs. She got a bone for this one. While the other dogs where watching her she sat and teased them by lifting up the bone and dropping it on her left or right, then grabbing it. This went on for about 10 minute until I decided to hand out more bones.

she's adorable!



Fred's sound asleep on Sophia's little dog bed, doesn't know he's about to go track yet. He's feeling 100% better so we decided to do a simple trail at a park near here to burn off some of his energy.

Just waiting for a text that the trail is laid and we'll be heading out. Gotta remember to get some pics of him all harnessed up and actually doing work, since that's what the thread is about....

He looks ready to work, doesn't he?

It's official, i have the BEST baby bloodhound ever

He's been on "vacation" for over 2 weeks (no work), had surgery, got neutered, been on very little real food as he was recovering and STILL did the trail easily.

It was 0.69 miles, so not long. Started in an open field, went to the woods. lots of hills, rocks and tree roots on the trail, and near a stream (he hates water). The guy laying the trail stopped for a bit 2 different times. once along the stream bank and fred went nuts runnning all over and back and forth and finally got back on the trail, second time he climbed onto the bench where the man had stopped for awhile, sniffed excitedly with his tail wagging, and then kept on going. He loves finding the person at the end and getting those treats!!

Tomorrow we have plans to send out someone on a about 2 1/2 mile trail and let fred do that, with a different handler. We need someone with muscles for this boy, he's CRAZY!!!!!!! He's done 5 or 6 small tracks in a day and didn't slow down at all. He loves working.

Not happy with today's track. It was 1.7 miles and over pavement, open field, woods, hills, all kinds of surfaces and would have been an awesome practice for him, but the handler screwed everything up. He led the dog where he thought the person had gone. The dog was right from what we heard. We were waiting along the middle of the track to watch him pass by and he never did. The handler knew where it ended and decided he knew where he was going and led Fred there. Stupid people. There are flags at every turn, if you don't see flags, you went the wrong way. The dog was trying to go the right way and the stupid handler messed it all up. he doesn't know how to listen and follow directions. I have being too weak to hold fred back, i at least know to follow the dog! he's the one with the amazing nose......

This is a sure sign of two possibilities. An inexperienced handler, or an over experienced handler. Neither is good for a new hound.

he's an inexperienced handler i guess. he's been working with the dogs longer than i have (now a year!) but doesn't do what he's told.

We had to use him because we're running out of people strong enough for Fred! My 15 year old sister has been handling him (which by the way, she's very inexperienced, just started helping a few weeks ago, and she does very well with him. she knows to FOLLOW the dog, not lead him.) but he's getting too much for her to handle on hills and uneven ground. we need someone with muscles to help us out
