But does anyone run silent dogs and having great success

Give your pooch a way to channel the energy he uses barking into a more pleasurable activity for both you and him. Engage his attention with chew toys, games and plenty of exercise. Train him to be quiet on command by rewarding him with treats and praise during the times that he's silent and ignoring the times that he's not. Don't accidentally reinforce his barking by yelling at him while he's being loud; some dogs view negative attention as something desirable.

its my understanding that coon hounds came from fox hounds . so at some time some fox hunter said the same thing you just did and somebody decided to take them up on it. Now we not only have coon hounds , we have several different kinds. black, blue, red, ticked spotted and all of them have different styles. glad some body went against the norm and now we have many awesome dogs out there. when i think of a coon dog I think of a dog used to hunt coon. Does your dog do that? If so I would call him a coon dog. and if he was good at it i would call him a good coon dog.


Any dog can be tought to tree coon. But not every dog can be a coon HOUND.
As you said the hounds came from the fox hound but the key words is came from. They didn't try to change the fox hound rules. They started there own breed and sport. Coon hunting with coon hounds. I see nothing wrong with breeding for what you want in a dog. Just don't ask people to change the hound or sport to suit you. I wouldn't care if the hounds ever opened in comp. hunts and they went to tree points only but I wouldn't ask everyone to adopt my way of thinking. I sure wouldn't ever hunt a silent dog for fun though. I love to hear the race and listen to them figure out were the coon went.

Lost Dogs – Silent Night Lyrics | Genius Lyrics

Humans though may not hear the silent whistle the same way dogs do and over the same distances, but they can detect a hissing sound. “Silent dog whistles make use of the high-frequency sounds that dogs can hear and we can’t, but they are something of a gimmick: Whistles that produce at least some sound audible to human ears are much easier for us to control. (How can you tell when a silent whistle isn’t working?)”

They are like silent watchdogs that give no warning when danger comes

“Silent dog whistles make use of the high-frequency sounds that dogs can hear and we can’t, but they are something of a gimmick: Whistles that produce at least some sound audible to human ears are much easier for us to control. (How can you tell when a silent whistle isn’t working?)”
