Shaking coons out has it's plus and minuses, different dogs react differently as some of the posters have commented, it helps some and can hurt some depending on how solid a tree dog the dog actually is.

Some have probably read my post on this before but when he was a kid the adults I think took the kids as climbers and also carried an ax. Coons weren't shot out they were knocked out of the trees the dog or dogs did the rest, it was seldom a rerun unless a pup that was being started was held back then turned loose. As an adult any dog we had very long their ears didn't hang down like a typical hounds do they kinda stuck out from their heads. This method was part necessity when he was a kid and in our early married years bullets cost money and climbing was free lol. I can tell you these and the squalling them down brings out something primitive in dogs that can't be replicated in any other way.
After the falling out of tree and another night of about walking off a cliff being rescued by his cast pulling him up with dog leashes in a human chain he's not much into places both feet aren't on the ground. I'm pretty sure he could still climb about anything if he wanted to but lucky for him he has a couple of Josh's squallers lol. I actually watched him squall one out just last week from the top of a big oak.
