Just dogs that catch game, period. Anything else is just a bonus to me. They have to be somewhat intelligent to be good game catchers. A dog that mindlessly barks up a tree without game in it is dumb as a box of rocks. I like these terms people are creating to describe these culls- they think these dogs take a gamble or are reasoning there decisions out to get treed or not!!! Hahahaha! They either have a sound mind that allows them to catch there prey, or they donít! Period!
Ghost...I have to agree with you...we need not be wearing rose colored glasses...
As I said earlier in my post... I like a dog that does it right Day in and day out...good dogs donít need excuses...they will look good in any company...
Training dogs is not so much about quantity, it's more about timing, and the right situations...After that it's up to the dog....A hunting dog is born...
