I have found it best to take one out with dogs that know what thier doing for a few lessons.Sometimes they pick it up pretty quick. It's nice if another dog or 2 can teach it to run rabbits and not deer.If you want to do it by yourself a good training collar is nice. Teach it to come to you on command, also to turn left and turn right.It will keep a dog from running off also a good way to teach it property lines.

To get him running take him walking and try to jump a rabbit in front of him. He should give chase and try to trail it. This may take a couple jumps. When hes about 6 months old is a good time to do this. I wouldnt shock him until he starts running good.

What the above said. I also like to set my live traps out and trap a rabbit to put the pup right on top of. I also like to feed them some rabbit, which some will disagree with but I do it. The best thing is to get it to running with experienced dogs that wont run trash.

Find a good running pen and put the pup in it,after about a month if the pup has it in it you will notice a huge difference.

Infoman, I thought that would solicit a response lol Heres what Im wondering, I have been told by a warden that you can trap them, you just cant transport them? That you have to turn them loose right where you trap them?

Where exactly are you in TN?

You need a starting pen since you have no older dogs to help. I know of a couple if they are still taking pups.
