New pup (Squirrel Dog)
« on: November 23, 2011, 12:03:02 AM »
I made the leap yesterday and got a Cauley Feist from George Cauley in Soperton Ga. Made a trip to look at a new litter of one week old pups (3 males 4 females) and place dibs on a male.  He had one female ready to go-- Well I could not resist the ladies sad eyes, either of them.

Meet Sophie: Reckon she's spoiled-- both I think!

She is a great lookin pup.  I think you made a good choice.  If you have never had a female 4 legged hunting companion I think you will find they can be more determined and tenacious than a lot of males.  (some of my make beagles do not hunt as hard if it is all boys in the field, they need a girl out with them to show off to....hum sound familiar? Most girls just get down to business never mind the company or surroundings).

Spoiled? I say yes but how could you not spoiled her? Very nice lookin pup. I think the female make better house dogs and they learn faster JMO so when you're not squirrel huntin she can guard the house.

Actually the pup is hers. She is the avid squirrel hunter in the family. Dad just gets to go along :)

Killed a grey squirrel today. Clipped the tail and introduced Sophie to it for about five minutes on a fishing pole. She was hilarious and very interested!

I ditto what BP said with one addendum....females, while being trained can be a bit more sensitive so bear that in mind when "correcting" any bad habits....I find this very true in the Labs I used to train...a male it didn't seem to matter how hard you got on em...they would just keep on going, though sometimes not "getting" what the scolding was about....the females didn't take to the scolding near as well but I found it didn't take as much scolding as they seemed to learn quicker and were the very best hunters, certainly in the beginning of their careers.
