How many have seen them? I have only seen one that was semi-open on track. Saw an add for a lacy that was listed as semi-open.

Apparently Sadie's dad John Wayne became open. Josh regularly ran with a friend with open dogs and his whole pack went from silent to varying degrees of open. That's why he sold him, and I think John Wayne ended up being strictly a bay pen dog after that, though I'm not positive.

But whenever I read semi-open, I wonder if they mean regularly yipping on track or occasionally truly barking on track.

Yeah, it sorted surprised me. Sadie has never made a peep on trail. Steve might know more about the story, but it sounds like Josh ran with those hounds all the time, and I'm not sure what his threshold was for being open. I know he did keep his gyp that started to open up and she has produced silent pups, so it definitely appears to be nurture over nature. To this day, if he even suspects your dogs will open on trail, he won't put his down.

Savoy,
I`m trying to think of the politest way to tell you you're mistaken.. ;)
Annie I have no clue about as I have not run behind her. But according to Robert & Melissa, shes silent on track.
As for Tank & Halo there is not much I can't tell you about them(good,bad or indifferent) as we have been working them & taking care of them for their owners for several months now and they live with us..(the dogs)

Maybe you're confusing them with other dogs ?

When Sue was younger she used to yip before she got to the hogs and if they broke and she wouldn't stop till it was caught. I haven't really noticed her doing it any more though.

Ive heard if you run a tightmouth breed pup with a bunch of balwing hounds they will pick up on it?

Julie gave a pretty good run down of the only open Lacy I have ever heard of. John Wayne wasn't born open and he didn't open up until he was almost 2 years old. Josh ran him with open dogs for a long time before he, and the rest of his pack, opened up.

Chad in most cases yes you can cause a silent dog to become open by running him/her with open mouthed dogs.

Not sure if it will work the other way around BUT I had a Red-Bone that "grew-up" with Lacy Dogs..and he wouldn't bawl track. Mike wanted to use him for hogs because of his cold nose BUT he was so dang clumsy X_X and he was my dog so I said no.. :-

Mis,
I sent you a pm.

A dog that is "made" open by running with open dogs is still open right? Not being a smartass, just making sure I understand it right. I have sen some cat and blk mouth become semi open by running with a hound cross that my buddy owns.

Got your PM Savoy

Yes a silent dog can become open mouthed if run with open mouthed dogs.
Does that mean the dog was born open ? No,it just means it picked up on a habit.
If being semi-open or full open doesn't bother you then it's no big deal..if it does bother you
then I recommend you NOT run your silent dogs with bawlers or yippers.

The better question would be this : if a silent dog is exposed to open dogs and then
develops the habit..can it be broken from that habit?
The obvious answer would be No, but is it a definitive answer?
I know trainers and hunters alike ,that would argue this subject :))

My dog Sunny used to do like PJohnson was talking about. She would many times yip a few times right before she would bay a pig. Or if a pig broke she would yip a few times every so often until they would bay again. I always thought it was when she was right on a hog but did not have it stopped yet. Now I dont know, I went Thursday and Heath's Lacy Tough struck and the dogs went to him. They bayed for a minute and it broke. They made a big loop out about 500 yards around us and then were heading right at us. The hole time Sunny was yipping pritty regular. Alot more often then in the past.(I have not hunted her in about a month because I though the may be breed) Then about a 150lb boar came running by us about 20 yards away about a 100 yards behind was the dogs trailing him with Sunny yipping.

DJ,
Amos is a full sibling, different litter if you remember. You know I don't hog hunt but Amos yips for just a little bit when he is real excited while running the property. I like hearing it because I know he's having fun. But I can see why hog hunters would prefer them running silently.
