I have a few questions regarding black mouth curs. I have a 6 month old daughter and the dog seems to meet our requirements. I'm worried though, because I'm afraid about when my daughter gets a bit older and starts to pull it's tail and hit it on the nose and stuff? I'm afraid it will attack her. Also, it will be outside quite a bit, in a LARGE fenced in yard, but will be played with quite a bit each day. Will it dig out of a fence?

When our BMC was a pup he did snap at the kids once. I was there and corrected the situation immediately, and he never did it again. We still watch him closely around non-family members kids. He has never snapped at a kid in 6 years.. so so far so good.

If you establish the dogs pecking order in the family (pack) he will know how to act around the kids. They will play rough if they are allowed. I have two teenage boys and a 1 1/2 yr old cur and he plays rough when they get rough. He likes little kids but I have to get after him once in awhile because he wants to play and he is big enough to knock them over. Be firm with the dog and he will learn to behave and be patient with the little ones.

I too have an 18 month old cur and she can and will play rough. She use to jump on me so I got that corrected. Now she will jump at me and flip her body to bump me. As for the digging, line a foot wide fence wire of some sort around your fence laying flat on the ground butted up against the fence.
