True to a point deerhunter. I agree, work and time actually hunting is everything. But if you put x number of hours into training a dog for what it was bred for, odds are you will get a better result than with a different breed that was not developed for that role, with similar training.

The late great “The Legend “ Hank Cotchin would be one of the best dog trainers I’ve ever seen. In his later years why still hunting he was know for is 2 Alaskan malamutes. The male Fan would only hunt Stags and would turn his nose up at hinds and small deer. But before that, he trained various breeds from gun dogs to cattle dogs with great success. Be with out a doubt the best dog he had was a Dingo. He explained to me one time that the dog didn’t bark so he had to learn the dogs body language. He also said the Dingo could read him as well, and would detect when it was time to go home and would run off. To combat this he would try not to think about it and in a round about way make his way back to the car.

He was an exceptional freak of a man and such a gentleman. I only met him a couple times in his later years. He made such an impression RIP Hank

Thats interesting DH. My dogs don't bark or voice unless its visual so that means its close. Which means o occasions they've walked right up to sambar or foxes.

That’s what you want Chuck, Very hard to train dogs to stay under control at the critical time of the hunt.
Dingo’s don’t bark at all. They just howe to call lost dogs in. So to get to a point at reading a dogs body language to this extremely is amazing. I’ve seen a lot of animal behaviourist that really enjoy taking people’s money, and not really having a clue other than the basic pack behaviour. Hank took it to a new level. He was a genius at training dogs for hunting.

I wish I had the camera on when the little black one has found a bedded up deer or fox and its jumped out of its bed and I've blasted it. The brown one doesn't make any noise normally unless its got something bailed. But sometimes things can happen so quick I don't have time to turn on camera, swing and shoot :cry:

Agree. Every mutt on earth has a bit of wolf in it somewhere, but that doesn't mean that they are all equally easy to train for any particular task or that they can all provide equal outcomes.
