I have broke dogs that were bad for treeing possums without harming their ability to tree coins. Same goes with slick treeing, they know they are wrong, especially when they go on and tree right. I never understand why some folks do not want to CORRECT their dogs at a tree! If you actually ruin a dog by correcting them at a tree, you NEVER had much to begin with. Dave
Mr Dave I agree. If you correct a dog on tree and it ruins them you didn't have much to start with.
Wiewis323, yes some will do just what she did. But for most just raising hour voice isn't enough of a correction. Which is why I always walk in and tie the dog at the tree before I shine , just like if you were on a cast. But now you have control of when the dog can leave.
