Pup not very excited about caged coon...

I exposed my 10 month old Kemmer to a caged coon,he barked at it a little, didn't want to get to close to the cage,I released the coon and pup chased it 50 yards and up a tree. Pup reared up against tree, looked up and then wandered away. I expected him to get a little more excited about the process. He just acted 'ho-hum' about everything. Is this normal? Jeez, a mutt from the pound would have got more excited than he did. His bloodlines are heavy Blondy 3....

Ive had finished dogs that was scared of a caged coon. Also had pups chase game up a tree and never tree and then go and tree a scent track on tree. I wouldn't worry much about cages or anything else they see.

One of the best English hounds I ever had the pleasure of walking behind couldn’t care less about a caged Coon...

I let him bark at it a few minutes then released it, let it run about 20 yards and then released my dog who then chased it about 50 yards and up a tree, he barked 1-2 times and lost interest. I gave the dog to a guy who hunts lion, bear, bobcat and fox and after a period of time hunting 5 days a week the guy said he was a cull. Even with the hounds starting and moving the track this Kemmer couldnt make it to a tree.

Dog may be smarter than the people that are trying to trick him with caged game.

Remember, you should not be showing them a caged coon to "teach" them anything... you are only doing it to find out if that switch has clicked, and they are ready for the next step.

The dog is either telling you he isn't interested in coon right now, or he never will be. Time will tell.

I think it can do a dog harm to over do it on caged coon. I want to expose a pup to a caged coon UNTIL they start firing on it.. then I'll turn one or two loose in front of them and let them try to tree it. If they are excited about all that... then they don't need anymore caged coon.

The only "trick" I would try would be to leave your young dog in a dog box where it can see another dog going nuts over a caged coon nearby. Let him see that for a few minutes then turn him loose.

I've got a BMC pup now that fires on anything moving so I'm feeling good about his potential. He also checks back with me and doesn't need a leash and he has common sense.
I think dogs that are raised for generations in kennels lose their "people" sense, especially if they are not hunted/tested much.
