    Most people around here use them for hog dogs. Some people use them for cattle work, but they are rough on the cows. Generally a good dog though.

    I wouldn't mind getting a Catahoula Bulldog someday.

    I have a two and a half year old catahoula male. Got him as a rescue at 6 months. He has come a ling way. I cant contain him. Chain link, metal crates, or 6 foot fences... Smart as a whip, loves kids, and has boundless energy. They are a handful and NEED PLENTY OR SPACE AND EXERCISE! Or they will eat your house and everything in it... Great dogs, but they often have severe separation anxiety issues and they need a job. You will not master a Catahoula--- you have to be a leader and hope they trust and follow. VERY INDEPENDENT!

    And the don't know how to give up, I've seen Micky spend all day going after a raccoon to the point he was so worn out he couldn't get in the truck with out help.

    It's hard to deal with if you're sitting, but if you're standing, the standard technique is to quickly raise your leg so that her chest hits your knee (along with, "Down!") rather than her getting her feet on you, so she has to back up and drop, and regroup (wondering what happened.) Don't use your hands and ignore her otherwise. Pay attention to her ONLY when she's behaving and staying down. This technique is easy for visitors to do also.

    I have tried this with people but have come to realize how hard it ends up being for them to follow simple directions and they end up getting all worried and freaking out.
