Re: Willy I have a question for you

Perhaps we can talk sometime but I'd like to talk to you about my female. Probably the most accurate little dog I ever hunted. She wants to please me more than anything. Minds the best, soft hearted and a little sensitive, never bothered trash. The concern I have is she sometimes takes too long to settle, she checks and rechecks herself, unless its a real hot run where coon goes up and she will tree fine. But on an old feeder track or if there is a litter or lots of tracks around she will locate, check and check and check and even when she trees good she has a habit of treeing getting down checking under the tree and going back to treeing. I have hunted her with a slick treeing dog and she will check and absolutely not honor him in any way. NEVER ever aggressive, she backs up and sits down sometimes with another dog jacking the tree. When she trees she's got it. I figured the more she matures and the more coon she has treed she will get better at sticking the tree. I love her accuracy and she has gotten better, I talk her up at the tree she loves the attention, worked on letting her tree for awhile tied up at the tree and have never shot out a coon she hasn't earned. She is not yet two. I love everything about her but just wish she would settle better on the tree. I tell myself who cares if she takes time if she has the meat everytime and shes honest and I know her dam and her grandsire were carefull accurate dogs that treed the last coon up. Should I appreciate what I have (none are perfect) or is there something I could be doing?
