Do those pig dogs guard?

The two pit crosses I have now I bred as guards and don't hunt them.When we used to have pig dogs our dogs would guard.Seen some blokes dog's with no guarding interest,I believe with new regulations that pig dogs need to be submissive to ALL people which is probably a good rule as no one would want to run into a pack of human aggressive mastiff/bull terriers when picking mushrooms in the pine forest, lol.

Feck feeding another dog , just put up a couple of Isis flags .. got the police watching my house 24/7 now 👍

I married a Northern lass good with kids bit agressive around house & can cook. No one visits anymore. Atb

If you want a yard dog and something to guard your kennels i personally dont think you can beat a well bred bandog type.Naturally territorial,generally not dog aggressive if properly socialised,physic

I never owned a pigdog lol In hog dogs the only ones known for guarding traits is catahoulas.Half of catahoulas are scared of their own shadow.The other half will eat you and ask for seconds.This is the reason we never kept many of them.They are inconsistent though but good hunters.I hunted everything from groundhog to wild boar with em  .Those crazy Cajuns who invented them expected them to put supper on the table every night and guard the place while they slept.

The catahoulas are becoming more popular here as pig dogs,the hunters say some bail and some lug pigs.They sound like a cattle dog.hound cross.

I believe you right.Some look like short haired Australian shepherds.Some look like blue bull lurchers.The best one my father had look like a blue merle whippet.She was a good baydog hogdog but wouldn't hunt with strangers.If you brought a couple strangers she would go hide under the nearest tree.They either was like this or good guard dogs not much in between.I blame it on the voodoo them Cajuns believe in.

Some good hunting dogs are weird,my mate had two English Mastiff/dane crosses that would crush pig's heads but were shit scared of little dogs and would run and cower if one got in the yard.He found them an embarrassment,I thought it was probably better they acted like that.He parted with them mainly as they killed most pigs and he liked to knife them,or so he says,I would have liked to own them if I knew he was selling them.

I had a couple lurchers that was scared of terriers.😂

As far as duel purpose hogdogs guard dogs  like the catahoulas I believe the old saying jack of all trades master of none.Not that you can't get a good one but we didn't breed them. 

The smartest guard dogs I've ever been around were all mutts from the pound.These same dogs were with their owners all the time.It makes wonder how much of guard dog is the handler.

As my father always said the number one rule for dogs is the owner must be smarter than the dog.
