    Default Canadian Curs (versatile hunting dogs)

    Hello,

    I am looking for anyone who might be interested in the Canadian Cur breed. I dont know why they arenít more popular.

    I hunt mine on everything, they do Upland hunting, waterfowl, varmint shooting, treeing raccoons/squirrels, tracking and catching bears and bobcats, and blood tracking big game.

    Anyone else hunting treeing curs, mountain curs, leopard curs, Iíd love to hear from you.

    Yours in sport

    Welcome to the forum.
    Never heard of it so had to look it up. Good question. Why isn't it used more?

    I remember Dave Rodgers of Barrie (not Larry as stated in the article) telling me about them in the mid-1990s.

    I’ll start by posting some pictures of the old Canadian cur bloodline (Dave Rodgers, Thornton, Ontario)
    Dave’s bloodline excelled as squirrel and raccoon dogs, as that’s what he hunted, but made very versatile hunters if trained in other disciplines. His bloodline was a heavily inbred line from a German Shorthaired Pointer cross Border Collie. He later outcrossed to Kemmer Stock Mountain Cur, and also to the Leopard Cur. They made a good name for themselves down through the USA, and excelled in competition hunts.

    Here’s a few of my own versatile treeing cur dogs....
    I have a few smooth coated dogs but I prefer the rougher coat as they cope better in winter, their feet hold up good when running ice and crusted snow, and they do awesome retrieving ducks and geese out of cold water.
    I don’t have any of Dave’s bloodline but I’d like to cross onto it if he opportunity arose.
