Saline Creek Kennels

     We train coondogs.  We raise the best puppies we can find, either from our dogs or buy them from successful breeders. This way of selection is best.  We start with this product and cull the dogs that do not have the proper hunting instincts. Unfortunately, some dogs, regardless of their breeding, will not make good coondogs.

     All puppies are introduced to a drag at three to four months old. We form a pattern of playing with the pups on a daily basis with a coon hide, treeing, dragging, etc. in a wooded area close to the house.  The drag is soon hidden in the tree to discourage sight hunting. As they progress, we do the same procedure at night. We encourage them to be aggressive towards a coon in a roll cage as soon as possible. As the pups show a real desire to hunt, they are taken out on hunts with the older dogs - one at a time- so there is a minimum amount of playing around.

     As we enter the woods from the house, there are several coon-feeders placed a few hundred yards apart into the woods.  This insures a good hot track for the puppies that are getting started. The convenience of this set-up allows us to hunt almost every night.
