I'm to old to get that kind of rush. Be careful you could get hurt with a big boar hog.

I like pitts because they have alot of heart and wont let go once locked u just have to be carefull not to get one thats crazy or ill u will weed through alot of them but when u get a good one youll have a catch dog i recomened raiseing one from a pup and socializing it as much as possible with otheir dogs treat it good mine can be boxed with any thing and she wont start any trouble unless u box her with a hog

Any dog that will grab and hold, haha

I like to use pit/american bulldog , got some leg under them and for a little guy like me a medium sized catch dog works great.

there a little slower than a pit but ive got one that catches fine so i guess it just depends on the dog.

Take a look at the Argentina Dogo. The dog is white and looks like a giant pitbull. Very gritty, great stamina, roughly 100 pounds and totally fearless. A pair of them will take down most any hog.
Look them up on the internet.

My Catahoula's catch like it's cool so never had a reason for another breed. Just my 2 cents.

I saw a trio of Dogo's in Texas that were unstopable. Pits are the best bang for the buck from all that I have witnessed. Good and cheap and they seem to take well to training too.

Default Best?

I tried em all back in the 60's and 70's. Best I ever had were a cross between airedale and redbone hound. Very smart and follows commands well. Never had to sew one of em up. Worse hog dogs I experienced were bulldogs. Some would catch on a hog anywhere, and would absolutely butcher small hogs. Sometimes they would even catch one another.

I seriously looked into dogo's. Heard alot of them won't catch. The folks selling them will tell you anything to make a buck. One lady I know in Texas said you go thru a lot of them to get one that is any good. She said a better cross was a dogo and A.B. or pit.

I knew that would want more than I would be willing to pay. I bought a Razors Edge/Gaff cross Fawn colored PB pup from Buckga and he is about 50 lbs of Major Pain... He catches as good as any dog I ve got and seems to be socializing well with all my dogs and family. I don't turn him in on a hog without the other pups baying . He will learn that when I cut him loose to baying dogs that he has a job to do on the other end.

That is a good strategy. I like it when they know to go to the bay. Brian is checking to see if BuckGa has anymore pups out of that cross. He said they were jam up.

I haven't done any hog hunting before, but am really excited to get started. Any opinions on a lab pit mix? She is just now 10 weeks old and she is completely socialized with our cat and our other dog that is about 20lbs. Any opinions?

Try a pit / american bulldog mix. They're great dogs! My dog's father is a rednose pit bull and his mom is an american bulldog.

Here he is.

Back in High school, my buddy had a Pit/Cur mix named "Spike"..............All by himself, he was PERFECT and would find and catch hogs..........
I watched him stand there nice and still when my buddy sewed him up one time, like he knew what was up. ......I dont know jack about dogs, but my understanding is that a Cur Dog has a great nose and of course the pit is a LOCK-ON, so that mix was perfect............
I also watched Spike (who had an awesome temperament-btw) put his PAWS on top of and hold down a little shote(sp) until we got there...........I could not believe he did not kill that little pig.............that dog was simply amazing.
I'd find a Cur/Pit mix..........

Dwh8417: Iv had 2 of those lab/pitts and both were jam up hog dogs, good nose and great fight. Both went down fightin if that tells you anything. Only thing about them i found wrong is that they wanted to catch but were both so jipp jawed(bottom teeth overlapped top by about an inch) that they couldnt lock as good as a regular pitt but other than that they were awesome

There is only one catch dog out there , That is a pit dog. You might go threw 10 to 50 to get a great one, but if you want to catch big hogs. WE dont have dogs that fight.

I agree that APBT is a first rate choice for a catch dog. I disagree with some of your statement though.

"red nose pit. they are the most agressive dog out there."

1. The type, doesn't necessarily make them aggressive. A dog with a red nose can be thrown from just about any blood line APBT's are bred down from now-a-days. Just because you see a red nose, doesn't mean it's been "game bred".

2. You don't want an "aggressive" dog for catching. You want a "Game" dog with strong drive. "Aggressive" will get a catch dog, your other dogs, or yourself busted up real good.

The best catchdog is the world is someone elses

The pits are good because you can get them for free. I have had very few that would not catch. Lines and blues and rednose, bluenose mean nothing in the woods on hogs.

I like them the best crossed over a cur, dogo, or birddog. Seems to add a little brains to the mix.

But most of the times like they already said with 2 cur dogs the catchdogs only gets a ride and walk to the woods and never gets off the lead.

1/2 pit 1/2 dogo current catchdog

I would have to disagree with you. A rednose Pit is the most aggressive doge of all dogs. but the best family dog to. It is all how you rais them. and if you rais them around other dogs and you get him out and walk him he will not attack a dog or a human. no matter what. but there is always that proctive side of them. there ant no size to a pit bull. if it is 400+ hog that pit will jump on it. if thats what it is trained to do. it is not the breed. it is the people that as them. it you go in my pic. I got a Pit bulls prayer in there. And that is what a pit bull should do.
