    try keeping her on the leash while other dogs are hunting,knock out the coon and dont let her have any. after a few times this might help.

    I think you should take her hunting and knock out a coon then load up and take her somewhere else. This helped a dog I had a while back, but there are some dogs that just can't be fixed.

    if you have a dog that will run and tree coon consistently and alone you are farther ahead of a lot of other hunters.
    have you had her in any hunts?
