Anonymous asked:
What is the best way to train a plott hound? I know that they are different than other puppies and they do things differently and learn things differently. So does anyone have any advice on how to train my Plott Hound puppy? He is 11 weeks old

1 Comment


The first thing to remember when training a dog is to work with your dog in small increments of time. Puppies have short attention spans, so two or three training sessions a day that only span 10 minutes will be way more effective than a longer session. Second, always train your dog with the adult he/she will be one day in mind. If you wouldn't let the dog do something as an adult, do not allow them to do it as a puppy. This breed needs a consistent trainer/handler/owner that does not waver what the dog is allowed and not allowed to do. Positive reinforcement is best, with a firm line on what is not acceptable.

My husband and I just became first-time parents to our daughter in late August. We had three dogs and two passed away in November due to cancer. We were devastated. We got a Curr hound puppy that is just a few days younger than our daughter. Our other dog is a 7 year old weenie dog mix. Our Curr is growing quickly and is so sweet. We live on a farm with plenty of acres to run, but we'd like to get her a friend that's more her age and someone to play with, learn to protect our family/home/farm from large prey. Would a Plott Hound be a good companion to get with a 4 month old baby and another four month old puppy? Our dogs are with us inside and pretty much go wherever we go. Thanks for your time!

Your Curr/Hound mix will grow up with the instincts to protect her property and family. So you will not have to worry about that as long as you teach her what are threats and what aren't. As for the Plott Hound puppy, the Plott Hound is a lovely family dog and does best on an acreage/farm. Since you already have the space, a pup would do fine in your home with your daughter and your other dog.

Anonymous asked:
Does the Plott Hound have brown streaks along the side of its body? Our dog is a rescued stray dog. He looks like a lab with some hound of some kind. He has long ears, barks like a hound and has brown streaks along the sides of his body. He looks like this Plott hound in the picture but has longer ears, can't see if the dog in the picture has these streaks or not. Can you tell me if he probably has some of the Plott Hound breed in him?

The only way to know if your dog is a pure-bred or what breeds make up your dog is to have your dog DNA tested. You can buy them online or at your vet for an average cost of $45.00 - $85.00.

How big do Plott Hound and Siberian husky mix puppies get? We are looking to get a puppy that is a Siberian husky and Plott Hound mix. I'm worried that it's going to be too big for my house. I am trying to get ideas on how big he could get, any ideas?



Hi, I was wondering. If you ever got this mix? We have a19 week old Plott hound mix we got from a rescue and the father's breed was unknown, but we think there is husky in there. Just wondered how big your dog got? Thanks.


We know the mom of our dog was a Plott Hound but he has a bushy curly tail of a husky and so we've always thought that's what the father was. He's about a year and a half and he's just shy of 50 pounds.
