Turn him into a straight possum dog. Plenty of possums and will usually tree pretty quick. I thought about doing that.


Tri-Tronics will work. You will either turn him into straight up coonhound or he won't be fit to feed. It's 50/50

If she does tree coons a shock collar is what you need. When she gets on a possum give her a pop with the collar. If she don't get the picture shock her til she cant move with that collar then grab her and give her a kick in the rear and tell her to get on somewhere. If she don't learn after a couple of times ain't no hope.

I have heard other things like put a possum and the dog in a barrel and roll them down a hill lol

With a deer let the dog out when you know or have seen deer and the second that dog opens up lay um down with that shock collar.

I'm totally against SEG's way of training a dog. Shock collars are not made to be used that way. No wonder PETA and other groups dislike the hunter so much.

The only way you should ever hit a dog that hard with a shock collar is if they are in danger like running towards a road or attacking someone. It doesn't take much to make a dog understand. Collars are used to enforce training, not train. They have to know what they are getting the shock for. You will totally mess up a dog using the collar wrong. Send it too many times in my 35 years of coon hunting.

At 4 - 5 its going to be a tough road. If you have somewhere you can put out feeders and get her on some hot tracks it's possible to break her. Of course you have to get her excited and pet her up good after shooting the coons out to her. Using the shock collar ethically is the key if you try to break her off possums.

Possums usually tree fast... Within a few minutes if your dog has any speed. Hunting dogs where the coon numbers are low can cause a dog that would not normally tree a possum to do it. If they hunt 30 minutes and don't hit a track they will pick up a possum, cat or deer if they are not hard broke. Good luck, youre gonna need it at that age. I've seen it done at 2-3 but it's not an easy task. If your dog will come when called, try hunting her close instead of letting her hunt wide... Making several cast.

Don't take much to make them understand? Your dog understand english or something lol? If you have corrected the dog and they know better than to run trash and they still keep running, they don't make that high stimulation for nothing. All I'm saying is if my dog gets after a deer and acts stupidly stubborn I'm gunna pop her good with it if I have already corrected her for it and she knows better. But each to his own. Never shocked a dog like that but I figure that's just one way to get it in a stubborn dogs head.

But ill just shut up from now on don't want the PETA people after me!
