Mountain Cur Preservation Society, not much going on as of yet, but big things down the road. Me and FDM has got this new Society going to keep the Mtn. Cur breed from going extinct. We are a small group, just me and the famous dog man. I will let you bubbas know in the near future how you to can help me and fdm in our good work.
I agree...but one problem I see is too much variation in the mtn cur breed. frustrating when looking for a good line of mtn curs for hog dogs...
we see feist looking mtn curs that are squirrel dogs and coon dogs and then we have short range dogs and long range dogs...
for hogs I like a mtn cur that is silent to semi silent and willing to go for hours on a hog until the hog is stopped...I like females to be about 45 pounds and males about 50-60 pounds with plenty of leg under them...and enough grit to stop a hog....
it is like we need 3 different catagories within the breed so that people in the market for a mtn cur can look in the right catagory to purchase a pup...I would be happy to give input and help in that "BIG GAME CATAGORY"....
either way I think it is a good idea.
Training dogs is not so much about quantity, it's more about timing, and the right situations...After that it's up to the dog....A hunting dog is born...
