My nephew culled a dog on me in June . A one year old dog . I have been working with him and not sure if I was going to keep him . This week I ran him 3 times and it looks like the light is finally turning on . I have mainly been soloing him and bracing him . I took him with the pack today and he didn’t embarrass me . He ran good in the pack and picked up 2 checks that made me happy . He has extra mouth when I run him at my place , but running today with the pack he didn’t give any extra mouth , I was happy about that too . It makes me wonder why he didn’t give the extra mouth with the other dogs , not confident or being dominated by their experience . I was happy that he didn’t give it .

I believe you cull a dog because it has not done what you wanted at the specific time frame you set. If you give it some time and have some PATIENCE the dog could do what you wanted just at a later time.JMO
An old timer in our club gets rid of some of his males, guys from Canada will get them and make them a FC in Canada and the run them in the US and have finished the same dog here. Jim always tells everyone I raised and owned that dog, then states he wishes he kept it.

A guy around us had a very well bred this year’s derby gyp that he couldn’t get to handle or run. He was getting ready to cull it. My buddy told him to let him see what he could do with it first. So he gave my buddy the dog. He worked with the hound on handling and got it started. She looked like she was a little strong for my buddy at first. He was going to sell me the dog for a couple hundred because the dog was climbing his fence to hunt. Long story short, he ended up making the fence taller and working with the hound... then won a derby gundog brace trial class of 20 females yesterday with her! A little work and patience and it is paying off.

Now that is all I want to discuss about this hound because I missed it for $200. Lol!

I was driving to look at it about a month ago and he changed his mind on me. To bad for me! But glad the little dog worked out.
