I got some video of my pups baying. I was pretty impressed by most of them, the three males especially. Some bark far off, but most come in close and want it bad. The ones I am keeping are the burnt orange one and blue male -- the ones that are up close most of the time. Since they're so young and easily distracted, we let them bay for about five minutes and then remove the hog so they don't get bored of him. We try to do this daily. I'd love to hear more ideas on how you train your pups. I have always done it like this and they will move to a bay pen to work when they work up more confidence. Anyways, I thought yall might like to see the videos. :) It makes my day to come home from school and work these pups!

IMO, you're doing the right thing there. I'd just gradually increase the time as they get older. They look great!
