Howdy folks. Hey,I have been working with Chopper (9 months old), for a couple weeks now. I have a wild cottontail that I have been using for training purposes. I keep it in one of those wire mesh crates you can get for your dog. Chopper really gets after it sounding off and chasing around the cage at the rabbit. He looks for all intents and purposes like a real go get em beagle. But,when I lay a trail with the rabbit for him to work he seems to get all confused. He has trouble staying on track,and doesn't get as excited as he does at the cage. Is this a normal reaction for a dog that is just starting? Thanks all,Rockdog.
