I had a walker male. I bought him when he was 2 years old and had never been out of the pen. The first year i had him he treed 20 possums and 3 coons. I almost got rid of him several times but i stayed the course. The next year he treed 35 coons and 6 possums. The first year I whipped him, shocked him whipped him with a possum tied a possum around his neck. Nothing seemed to work.The next year I went to the tree, snapped the lead on him, talked ugly to him and lead him about 150 yards and turned him loose again. Dont know if it will work with your dog but he turned out to be the best i ever owned.

all dogs are different in how they relate to pressure and amount required to get a correction ive had them that i could yell at and that was all it took and also have seen them that they dont make a collar strong enough.
if the age is 4-5 years then your going to have a long rd.
with pups i usually praise them big time on a coon.if i had one tree off id just pull them off no praise(if they are just getting treeing good)after they are treeing good and they tree off game they got a correction..
if you cant fix it some where in west tenn. they have a possum hunt every year

A little coon fur in her mouth can go a long way. Like SilverFox said, get her on some hot tracks and put some hide in her mouth while season is still in. And like hoot owl said. Some times a dog can be like a person. You can be rough with them and they will still be unruly. Talk to them and handle them sternly but with a little sense about you could go along ways. I have used level 6 on my TT one time on my male dog. I was watching him work on the Garmin one night and he struck a trail as hot as I'd ever heard him go. They way he was headed, he was going straight to a field. Across this field was the road, and he was going fast. I said to myself, self ain't no coon in his right mind gonna cross a wide open field with a hound on his heels with 300 acres of ridge behind him. Deer was my first thought. This was the first time I'd had any deer trouble with him mind you, and was determined it would be the last. I already had him trained to come back on the tone but he wasn't slowing down. I jacked it up on 6 as I was headed that direction and let it eat. When I found him he was coming up the road with his tail tucked. He hasnt ran a deer since but has treed coons. When done at the right time a little juice can do wonders.
The work is mighty hard out in the gravel yard. I'll never be a free man so they say

Dont tread on me

My friend trapped two possums killed them then left them in his dogs kennel to rot in july. His dog will not even look at a possum now. The dog was 6 years old and had been treeing possums all his life.
