One of our puppies was picked up yesterday by a man who is a licensed falconer. He's going to use the dog to hunt squirrels with his redtail hawk. From my limited understanding, the dog trees the squirrels or just keeps them moving, then the hawk goes in and "grabs" them.

Joey is experienced at training squirrel dogs, and I'm excited about the possibilities for this pup. There are only 150 licensed falconers in Texas.

Joey, I know you're on here sometimes...feel free to introduce yourself and fill in the gaps. :D

I can't wait to hear about this! Given their speed, energy, tenacity and intelligent, I think Lacys would make the perfect partner for a falcon. And I didn't even know falconers ran teams like that. Very cool and very exciting!

That's really neat!! It sounds sort of like the hare coursing that is done with falcons and sight hounds on hares. I always though it would be neat to see a Lacy try that. Very cool! I hope the happy new owner can post pictures and updates sometimes. :D

A mountain cur would be a better fit for that line of work because they're bred to be tree dogs while lacys are bred to be more of a generalist BUT I've seen lacys want to hunt squirrels....mine was interested but not into the barking up the tree every 5 seconds like some dog breeds that are bred for strictly squirrel hunting.

I've always had a keen interest in falconry. Keep us up to date on how it works out.

As sharp as the lacy bred is I would think this would be a simple task with the right trainer, very interesting and would really like to know the progress. Keep us posted.

Here are some pictures of Trapper with his hunting partner. Joey says that they are getting used to each other and Trapper's one of the smartest dogs he's ever worked with.
