Gonna train a blood trailer

Post by Bossman » Wed Aug 26, 2015 6:00 am

I've got great expectations this year of training a blood trailer. Wife 2 has moved back home... Wait let me get a few things straight. I have 3 wifives, wife #1 I'm married to wife #2 is going to nursing school, Wife #3 is a Jr. in high school. Wife #2 moved back home after calling off a marriage. (Thank GOD) and brought home her miniture Datson. He is now almost 9 month old and built like a race horse. My plans are to train him up to be my lil trail dog. I just don't know to get started but I'm sure that everyone will be able to add lots of do's and dont's. Where do I get started?

dam i don't know where to start. Blood trailing training is the least of your problems. But I'm with ya. I have been talking, reading and researching for the last couple years about getting a blood dog and still haven't done it. I started working with my wife's dachshunds but she is worried they will get hurt...blah blah blah so i gave up and have been trying to figure out what dog i want to get to train. I did 3 or 4 meat drags with meat treats with both her pups and they knew what they were doing after the second.

Al's BMC did really well with his training.

Bossman, let me share with you how our blood trailer got her start. It's my wife's dog, she is 1/2 chocolate Lab and 1/2 red merle Australian Shep., she looks like a pile of oak leaves and now weighs about 65 pounds.
She was about 10 months old, I shot a buck from the shootin' house that was runnin' a doe. I watched him run into the pines and saw him do a flip so I knew he was probably down. I went back to the house, got Flossie and took her to the place where the buck was hit. She found some blood, I turned her loose and she went right to him. I've done this almost every time I kill one here at home, she always finds them. She will even come running sometimes when I shoot and start lookin' all by her self, she remembers whats going on.
She has actually found 2 bucks that I had no idea where they went. Lots of practice and it seems she understands what we are doing. She doesn't like to be around when we are just shooting and shy's away when I go in the yard with even a pistol, but during deer season she puts up with it. I don't think she would retrieve birds at a dove shoot.
My avatar picture is of her finding her 1st one back in December 2010.
I have no doubt that a Dachshund wouldn't make a good blood trailer. My daughter has 3 of them and the little male is a cat killer. (I like him.)

Bossman,it looks like you and I are going to be learning this together. We put a deposit down on a pup, it should ready by the 1st week of October. We decided to get a Weimaraner. Its my intention for my son and I to teach this dog to blood trail for us. I am looking forward to the process.

It is going a little slow mainly because I have not spent the time that I need to. I shot one last weekend and was out of town so that wasn't possible. He would have swam for him. I didn't think about it but I should have saved some blood for training reasons.

We're finally biting the bullet and getting a new dog, picking up a lab pup around the end of October so I'll be saving up some blood and pieces for training too.

NP Bossman. I picked out our next pup this week. He will be ready in a couple weeks. He is a Black and Tan lab which is really rare color that most people will never see in person.
