I know some people who use them very successfully under A cast of HH. Also a guy who hunts an rt over a group. The one person I hunted with who had one with a gos was a nightmare dog. He ran over the hawk on the catch 2-3 times and after that the Gos hated the dog. Started going after it instead of game. They are dumb and loud and you may spend more time looking for the beagle at the end of a hunt than you will hunting. Those little dudes are leggy. All that said, they are hard to beat for a pack dog on rabbits.

From what I've seen they're a hound. They follow their nose very well. Everything else comes second....or 245th in their mind. That said, their nose is tough to beat since they've been bred to do one thing for so long.

Ethics make the individual, not the other way around.
Very interesting, I would be able to train my dog to hunt. I have a rottweller and I do not give him fresh meat; I want to avoid an attack on people. I feed him special food Now Fresh Grain-Free Senior Weight Management Recipe Dry Dog Food , this food for older dogs but the same company also lets out puppy food. Very good food on the composition of vitamins and nutrients, my dog really likes to treat him. I wonder if he has not tried fresh meat, will he be able to hunt wild animals after this feed?
