Blood Tracking Dogs For Sale, Get Your Tracking Dog Now, Before You Need It!

I am getting a lo\t of positive reports of how pleased my customers are about the breeding and training methods I sell.

When it comes to training methods, I say the rubber meets the road during deer season when we got fresh blood on the ground.

And yes, do train in the off season, but you will never make a training exercise as complicated as a wounded buck will during deer season and thus wounded deer will teach your dog, not you or me.

As far as breeds go, I am a Catahoula man but I don't think the breed is as important as the dogs willingness to hunt for you and be part of a team.

And so, like Beauty below who is a mixed Catahoula, and an all around family pet most of the year, when it is hunting season, she is in the woods helping put food on the table.

Too many people want a good tracking dog and don't understand that you need to let the dog to be a part of the family or the hunting club in the off season, and it will be there in the fall.  

 If you buy a tracking dog from me, I am always available for you to call and consult with if you need advise.

Blood Tracking Dogs For Sale 2016 Hunting Season

Hi, I am Marcus de la Houssaye,

 I operate a blood trail dog training facility in south Louisiana, 

I usually work with several dogs at a time because dogs are social creatures just like us.

And as you can see below, I also work with a pack at times... and

It is so nice to see satisfied customers coming back for more and bringing me an opportunity to see where my breeding program is going...

Below is an 8 month old out of 2 dogs I sold a customer a few years ago.

Below is a son of Curlytail and Cutty Dark and demonstrates how breeding solid color dogs can produce amazing color and perfect balance to prevent too much white.

Below is Cutty Dark a grandson of 2 Diamonds Cutter, and the father to the puppy above

and here here is C Arrow Patch, the pups great grandfather on da moma's side.

Below is the mother to the pup above.

In the photo below, you can see how I engage puppies early on in the smells and activities of deer hunting... and yes that is a lot of blood for a tracking exercise, but I had just skinned and had a lot of bloody wash water to work with. So I would make trails and blood dumps along the way..

I then went and turned out a bunch of puppies who were not in the skinning shed and we walked around the yard and into the woods and visited these blood dumps, and blood trails, and find pieces of deer feet, bones and skin hidden in the bushes...

Accompanying us on training excersizes would be some of my veteran trackers as seen below

The point I want to make here is that training a dog to track blood is good in the off season because it allows the dog to go do things and be busy and run and play in the woods, just being a dog.

But the real training of a blood tracking dog comes during hunting season when there is blood on the ground and that is where the rubber meets the road because you will never in the off season create training exercizes that teaches your dog as much as a wounded deer will during deer season.

Now I know some people object to having a dog in the woods during hunting season because you think all breeds are like hound dogs that go for miles, but a good tracking dog should be short range and check back if you are working them off leash.

And Catahoulas are not hounds they are cur dogs which means they are like a bird dog, and relatively short range. Given time they learn to make sure you are on track.
