The Catahoula Cur is also known as the Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog, and this breed is the state dog of Louisiana. The Catahoula Cur is named after the Catahoula Parish (county) in the state of Louisiana. The dog is best known for their use as a hunting dog, particularly when hunting feral hogs. The Catahoula Cur is very smart and has a great deal of energy, so the pup will need a great deal of exercise in order to prevent mischief. In fact, a Catahoula Cur that does not partake in daily activity will be tempted to become aggressive or destructive.
The Catahoula Cur is quite the original breed! A hunter at heart, the Catahoula will enjoy outdoor games and activities. Plan engaging games in which you both can bond. A busy dog is always a happy dog - and a companion of this breed will be most content when their mind and body are both stimulated with learning and exercise.
