This is a pic from a two dog bay-up. The dogs are not allowed to tough the boar, the boar has nor rules too follow. Of camera is the handler is in the paddock with the dogs & boar. The athletic ability of the Catahoula is truly unbelievable to see.

I happy to your group is being demanding in who they sell dogs to.
Yes we are not ever going to hunt or do any serious training or showing with our dogs, but I would like to see boar trials with Catahoulas someday. There are some really amazing YouTube videos of the dogs with boars and their speed and strength is amazing.
