Default MT Cur

Love my MT Cur 'lucie' I've had 3 MT curs a coon dog and 2squirrel dogs. Started training Lucie at bout 4 months, and she took an interest in it right off the bat. Treed her first squirrel at 10 months, she's 3 now and an excellent tree dog! Like the others have said, work with her as much as you can, and you can buy the live squirrel trap at Atwood's for around $30. I caught several in my trap using corn, and seed mix, you can buy at Atwood's also.
one little trick I do is take a squrriel hide, tie a rock or weight of some kind in it, with a long string throw it up in a tree, when your dog starts barking tree, shoot your 22 rifle , or shotgun and pull the string and squirrel out of tree, that helps the dog learn that when you shoot the squirrel will fall out, helps her learn to stay at tree also. Patients with the dog is the main thing, and praise her big time when she does something right !! Good luck !! Let us know how your dog is doing.
