I will tolerate a partially silent dog if it open on track on at least 70% of it's tracks. I will not keep a dog that is 70 percent silent.
I like to know when a dog strikes a track. I then like to see how skilled they are at unraveling a track, I like to judge that skill by the how fast they move from point A, where they first opened to point B, where they are now on the track, when they open again. I like to hear the different intensities of the bark, from what they sound like when the are trailing a cold track, to what they sound like when they are running to catch so to speak.
Half the fun of coon hunting for me is hearing the dog work the track, the other half is hearing the locate, and that steady pounding at the tree that only comes from building that trust in that hound that I will be at that tree, no matter what the obstacle may be.
There is just something in it for me that sooth's my soul when I gain that trust in that hound that it can tree most any track it comes across, and to watch that hound trust me as well that I will be there no matter what, to praise him/her for a job well done.
