This boar weighing in the vicinity of 400lbs, was caught with 2 of our dogos, 'Dually'
The Dogo Argentino is an outstanding athlete, capable of running great distances in pursuit of it's quarry,
while still having enough power to fight, subdue and hold it when it catches it. They are excellent catch dogs and will fight and hold dangerous game to the point of death if necessary.
Two nice boars, caught with 2 of our dogos, 'Chepe'
and 'Loyal'. 'Chepe' is the dog barely visible on the right side
of the frame.
The Dogo has a good nose, they usually hunt
"head up" only following "hot"
(fresh) trails or by winding their quarry. This hunting instinct
(drive) is natural in Dogos from hunting lines, and is an
important trait in a 'true' Dogo Argentino.
This boar was close to 400lbs. It was caught by 2
our two dogos 'Loyal' and 'Chlorox' and a
young dog from our lines, 'Chuy' owned by Jarrett Newman. Chuy was
18 months old at the time.
They can and will find their own game if the instinct is allowed and encouraged to develop.
This close to medium range hunting suits the Dogo perfectly, as he is not a scent hound in the truest sense of the word. A Dogo is silent on track, a trait that would make it hard to follow long distances, and once it finds it's quarry it will immediately try to engage it and try to catch it - many times without making a sound. It is very important to keep close to your Dogo, in the woods or use one of the hunting styles that have been developed to compliment the Dogo's strengths.
This boar was caught by 'Chepe', 'Loyal' and a young Dogo
from our lines named Katerina, owned by John Favor.
She was 11 months old at this time.
The Dogos temperament is such that other hunters in the
group will have no problem handling your Dogos in the field. This
is often necessary, as it is the responsibility of the first
hunter arriving at the catch to dispatch the boar and secure the
dogs. Dogos are not by nature shy, defensive or hard to handle
when in the field. It was common in Argentina for one hunter to
borrow another hunters dogs and take them hunting....
