from what I have read the catahoula supposedly was originally in europe. They do know that the native americans were the first to use the breed in louisianna....louisianna catahoula leopard dog. They were used for cattle herding, they were a working dog. Great for hunting. Allison loves to stalk the birds in the backyard. She occassionally brings them to the door. They are a very dominant dog, even dominant over the humans. I had to really work with her on the dominance thing. I had to walk her to her chain in the back yard, I had to walk her to the car , I had to literrally show her who was boss. She's got the idea now. And for everyone to know she was only on a chain for a short time for her training, she would wiggle out of that and run off. She no longer runs off. I can leave her in the back for a while while i am home, I can take her to the river now and let her off her leash, she comes back when it is time to leave. They are also very mischievious. LOVE to cause trouble. Very hyperactive dog. She learned how to play football from daddy. Yet the breed is VERY loyal, very loyal. Very protective of their territory. She loves our children, very gentle. She wrestles with my son who is 9. He only got hurt twice because they butted heads coming around a corner. I also have a 19 month old, they wrestle....well more a less nudge eachother with their noses. The catahoula is a very intelligent breed. I can actually tell Allison to go wait by the door of the car when we are ready to leave, or tell her to wait by the door of the house when we get back from wherever, and she will do it. if there is a dog passing by the house while we are in the yard and I tell her its ok she stays put. I love her so much. I am very glad I brought her into our home. She is a darn good dog.
