Introduction

The Black Mouth Pom Cur is a hybrid dog; the parent breeds are the Black Mouth Cur and the Pomeranian. The Black Mouth Pom Cur will have the drive to hunt prey as the Black Mouth Cur parent is a hunting dog. The pup will also have the high energy of the Pomeranian parent breed. The Pomeranian is related to sled dogs such as the Spitz and American Eskimo dog. This means the hybrid breed will be strong, energetic, and tenacious. You will need to plan activities that allow the dog to pursue that innate hunting instinct as well as those that provide mental stimulation.

Your Black Mouth Pom Cur will enjoy the mental stimulation of an agility course. If you live near a dog park, you may find that there are obstacles set up in order for you to simulate an agility course much like a dog would encounter at a dog show. However, if you have the room yourself, you can make your own agility course. You can even use hula hoops to simulate portions of the course! If you can find small orange cones, you can assist your pup in running through these obstacles for the "weaving" portion of a course. You can also purchase a collapsible tunnel to add to the course.
Step
1
Build the course
The Web is a great place to find instructions on creating your own obstacle course, should you chose to build one. Often, you can utilize items that you already have around the house to build the course. Children's play tunnels, small orange cones which are utilized by soccer coaches, even unused PVC pipe can be utilized to build your own obstacle course.
Step
2
Begin training
You can start your pup on agility training when the dog is about six months of age. You will need to break training into small, ten to fifteen minute sessions. Use lots of treats and praise. Start with something simple such as weaving. Always notice if your pup seems inattentive and if so, end training for that session.
Step
3
Stay consistent
When training your pup to traverse the obstacle course, always maintain consistency. Use the same commands each time that you approach a particular part of the course. If you use hand signals, use the same signals each time. The Black Mouth Pom Cur is a very intelligent pup; learning the course will not take a great deal of time.

Activity description
Keep in mind that your Black Mouth Pom Cur is likely to resemble the Pomeranian parent in many ways, only just slightly larger. Because of this, you may find the best way to provide activity for your energetic pooch is to set out on several short, brisk walks with your dog. The Pomeranian parent will lend the pup a great deal of energy. However, you will want to ensure that your dog does not become overheated. The Black Mouth Pom Cur is likely to inherit the coat of their Pomeranian parent, so, particularly in hot climates, do not walk the Black Mouth Pom Cur over 40 minutes in one session.
Step
1
Plan your route
First, unless you have a large backyard, you will need to be cautious when choosing where to walk your Black Mouth Pom Cur. If you live in a suburban area, the sidewalk is best for walking this breed. This keeps the pup away from possible traffic. However, be sure to check your pup for damage to their paws after walking on asphalt and never walk on this type of surface on a hot day.
Step
2
The dog park
If you do live near a metropolitan area but you feel that there is just too much traffic in your neighborhood, then check your local dog park. Many of these facilities offer walking tracks. What's more, you may be able to allow your pup off leash for walking in an enclosed park. You will need to make sure that your pup is ready for the dog park (socially); also be prepared to pick up after them, using doggy waste bags.
Step
3
Duration and intensity
Most experts do not recommend going over 45 minutes of activity at one setting with your Black Mouth Pom Cur. If you are walking, it is best to break this into two sessions. Walk during cooler times of the day in the warm months so that your pup does not get too hot. Never push your pup to jog alongside you. Be careful about the timing of the evening session - you want to walk your pal close to bedtime to avoid a middle of the night bathroom break.

According to the American Kennel Club, one of the most important decisions you can make regarding your pup is choosing the best obedience training opportunity. There are many factors that go into choosing just the right training class. Some people have to send their puppies to a training center for the best training; others will work on obedience training themselves. Some attend local classes. Furthermore, one should put much research into the school or instructor prior to sending your pup to training. You might also need to consider whether you want your pup to have individualized training or attend group classes. Research is a necessary component of choosing just the right class for your prized pooch.
Step
1
Choosing the right school
First, you need to locate a number of training schools or trainers in your area. Speak with fellow dog owners and your vet to get recommendations. You will need to decide if you want your pup to have private sessions or work in a group setting. You may also have to send your pup away to school for training. The American Kennel Club website has a wealth of information on making this all-important choice.
Step
2
Do your homework
Most experts recommend, if possible, attending a few training sessions yourself once you have narrowed down your choices. You will need to ensure whether the instructor is a trainer or a behaviorist. Ask the instructor for his or her credentials. You also need to be completely sure of exactly what type of class you are signing your pup up for.
Step
3
Practice makes perfect
You will need to continue training at home with your pup once school is out. Your trainer will instruct you in how to do this. Be consistent with commands. Utilize the same type of rewards as the trainer. Remember, the Cur parent breed tends to be a little more independent, so take time daily to reinforce what was learned at obedience school

Dog Park

The Black Mouth Pom Cur needs to be allowed to run and explore. The dog park is the best place for your pup to do so, particularly if there is an enclosed area in which you can allow the pup to run free.

One-on-One Training

Due to the independence of the Black Mouth Cur parent breed, it is recommended that owners begin training as soon as possible. Start when your pup is about four months old with real obedience training.

Conclusion

The Black Mouth Pom Cur is an energetic, tenacious, and enjoyable pup. This dog is truly the best of two hybrid breeds. Although they can be a tad stubborn, enrolling your pup in obedience classes (or beginning training at a young age) will help to bypass any issues before they become apparent. This pup will enjoy taking long strolls with you as well as attending the dog park on occasion. This one-of-a-kind furry buddy will provide you with a unique friendship that you'll both enjoy.
