    I have a dog there this season he started to hard for his own good his first couple of digs were shaky he was rolling around trying to bully the game making mistakes nearly forcing the shift but he dug a couple and failed a couple and I wasn’t impressed by him I put him in a spot that was maybe to big a test just because I wanted to see what he was about and he showed after 1hr beat up and exhausted I made my mind up in my head he was finished only my digging partner convinced me to try him one more time so I healed him and gave him another go and he used his voice for the first time and has used it since he will still rattle him but uses his voice plenty and has dug away since with no fails that’s not to say he won’t walk again because it’s always in the back of my head but sometimes it costs nothing to try them again

    Probably the most sensible thing I’ve heard on the internet take a young dog to a live set on his own no other dogs people or distractions and you will learn a whole lot from them especially the type I keep are a little bit highly strung and it doesn’t take much to break there chain of thought of the matter in hand

    I’d agree with you per cent but that’s not how your first post came across

    There’s a big difference in a green pup losing game or something happens underground and it doesn’t have the experience to work it out and walking away from the quarry it’s being able to spot the difference I’m no fool they don’t all make it regardless of breeding but just because they didn’t dig the game doesn’t always mean they walked either it’s a matter of personal opinion how you view the dog

    You either have a yard full of world beaters or an empty yard with that view to me there’s no right or wrong way to enter a young dog your opinion is based on the outcome if he digs it in your mind it’s the perfect start if he doesn’t you are downhearted from day one the truth of the matter is a great dog isn’t born great it takes time effort and lots of work you have got to allow for hiccups along the way and any man that tells you that he has got everything he’s put the dog too I’d take with a pinch of salt I’ve been lucky enough to see some top class dogs both hard no reverse types and rock steady away with no damage and none are any better than the other it’s just personal preference to your style of hunting and the land you hunt
