    Quite dog generally mean shorter chase.

    Good point horshur. I hunted old school. No gadgets or gimmicks. I sure liked to have the noise in the rough mtns of west koots. Sometimes saved me from Charlie horses. ! Lol

    The hounds mouth tells you what is going on. Tells you what they are running. Tells how fast, tells when they need help. Tells you when they have the game jumped, sighted, treed or bayed. Tells you they have a loss.
    It takes years to get the “ear” and of coarse each dog has his own voice.

    [QUOTE=RobU;2056108]For many years there was a German fella running those terriers in revelstoke. Worth looking into!! He had 2 complaints with those dogs (but tons of success)
    the little guys had a tough time in certain deep snow and no tongues. (Noise)[/QUOTE

    I haven't come across many Jagdterriers that are not sight or scent loud since in Germany and Austria it would be an undesirable trait.Jagdterriers which are silent hunters are probably from poor breeding or from the USA.That's why the american bred terriers can not be called a Jagdterrier.Anyone thinking of getting into Jagdterriers better figure out how to entertain those dogs year around.The were never bred to be pooches.
    And for the deeper snow conditions you always can get the Heideterrier.

    This makes me smile. Love the intensity on the Lab. These dogs are in their element when the weather is nasty. Really highlights one of the differences between the two breeds.

    Great photo.....
