Cane Corso as Boar Hunting dog?

Discussion in 'Obedience & Sports' started by Canis-Pugnax-Siciliano, May 16, 2017.

  1. Does anyone use their Corsos to hunt boar, because I know this was originally one of their many purposes. And does teaching a dog to hunt make it more aggressive or just mentally stimulates them?

    I'm not a hunter, but from what I've seen of well trained dogs - trained to hunt and/or as personal protection - the more training, the more you learn how to communicate with the dog and are able to flip the "on" and "off" switches. So, a dog that is in full protection mode can be turned "off" and returned to a calm companion (albeit an alert one), if both dog and handler are well trained and able to communicate properly.

    SO... short answer.... no. A dog trained to hunt is not more aggressive, and a hunting dog post-hunt should be a tired, satisfied, happy dog - the best kind!
     
  3. Yeh I thought so it would just tire out the dog and make it less frustrated!

    any dog i've known that hunted hogs were highly prey driven , and game , they'd fight for real , it's why you normally see folks using gamebred pits or pit crosses , not something for everyone , not saying they're dangerous , but a highly prey driven dog is more of a handful than most folks are looking for .........
