DJ was very disappointed in Sunny on that last hunt. A little yip every now and then when she's right on the hog is acceptable (to us), but yipping constantly when she's 100 yards away from it isn't. Especially when she's running with other peoples' dogs (and we know what they're thinking :ymblushing: ). Any suggestions?

Amber,
seeing our posts right next to each other really shows how much these dogs look alike. Sunny, of course, looks like a female but the same color, eyes, ears, head,
Is the yipping something she's picked up recently because you've been hunting her a long time correct? If so, I wonder why she'd start out of the blue yipping all the time.

Is Sunny just squeaking a little while she runs or truly barking? It seems like a stretch with the woods being as dense as they are, but could she see the pig? As far as I know, Sadie is totally silent on track. But she did a fly by chasing a jack rabbit once and she was squeaking in excitement. It was quiet, I wouldn't have heard it unless she was running right past me, but she was definitely making a noise. I wonder if she does that with pigs too, but no one is ever close enough when they're about to bay up to hear it.

But if she's been off for a month, it could very well be the excitement of being back in the woods. Remember, we don't make these dogs hunt, we let them hunt because that is what they absolutely love to do. She could have been yipping because she was so excited to be back on a pig. In that case it would probably wear off in a hunt or two.

I have seen a couple of closed mouth dogs open up, to varying degrees, due to environmental factors (mostly proximity to open mouth dogs). But I have never even heard of a open, semi open, yippy or babbling dog go silent.......... I hope that Sunny proves to be the first.

How about because she is half Plott Hound and has the potential to open up at ANY time, because half of her siblings are a little yippy and because the first time that she runs with a full open dog will likely be the beginning of the end of her tight lips? :)

Suki has always been silent..must be the Lacy in her.. ;) and the fact she has always run with closed mouth Lacy Dogs...

Well hard to answer everyone. She has always yipped to some degree like I said. But nothing like the other day. I am not sure what changed. It is a very distinct yip. I could her her from a few hundred yards atleast. And she could not see the hog atleast not when it passed us and I could hear her then. Anyway I hope Julie or Mike one is right and she stops. But I too have never heard of it happening. If not, I am not sure what I will do?

D.J. & Amber Sunny has me puzzled..
It could very well be like Julie was saying as far as her being excited..how old is she now?

She's 27 months old, but she still has the playfulness of a puppy. They all get down to business in the woods, but at home, Sunny and Piper play non-stop while Aggie watches.

Not yet. I know DJ wants to take her without a bunch of other dogs (probably just her and Aggie), so he can better assess the situation. I think he plans to do it this weekend.

So, how do you train a dog not to bark or yip, or what ever, on track?
