Well here we go, it is that time of the year
where everyone wants a finished blood tracking dog and I mean they want it now because they have
a big deer they shot and can't find. And they can't find it because they didn't want to feed a dog all year long and now that they did not plan on maintaining one, and a dog is needed and they want to act like it is sitting on the shelf at the convienence store ready to go!
That right let's go to the blood trail dog store and get one!
Well as much as I wish it was that simple, I am here to report that unless you put time AND money into that dog, what makes you think it will work for you now that you need one?
I am available to travel and track for you if you are close to Lafayette, La., but why are you hunting deer and do not have a dog lined up yet?
OK, I have puppies, started dogs AND finished dogs, and if you call me to ask the price of my dogs, like it is a generic price across the board, I will most likely ask you to tell me what this hypothetical dog you have never seen is worth to you.
Also, I need to know what you expect this dog to do, and you better be specific if it is a finished dog.
I also train dogs, but most people want me to do ALL the work, and then they "buy" something that can only be earned as far as the dog is concerned. What I am getting at here is what motivates a dog to hunt is a relationship with the owner, not the training or the breeding. Sorry if this is not what you want to hear, but I have been doing this for years, and most people come to buy a dog with unreasonable expectations that I AND the dog cannot fulfill.
I can be reached at 337 298 2630 if you need to discuss blood tracking dogs.
I am Marcus de la Houssaye, and I breed Catahoulas as working dogs.
