My opinion..it is all in the breeding.My pups start at 2 to 4 months and some have been campaigned in trials at 4 months and done well,others do very well in competition by 6 months on.If a hound is not running a rabbit well at a year old it does not eat here or kenneled here,my breeding or other bloodlines i may chose to buy to see if they can complement my breeding program..Also if i can burn a pup out by putting to much pressure on it i have made a mistake somewhere in my breeding program..TY
