PRICE BOAR BEISSER FAQS
1. Q- What is the Price Boar Beisser?
A- The Price Boar Beisser is the Ultimate Predator Defense Dog, Farm Guard, & Catch Dog.
2. Q- What is the meaning of the name Boar Beisser?
A- Boar Beisser (pronounced: Bor-By-Zer.) is a combination of the American (English) word for wild hog- "Boar" & the Olde German word for biter- "Beisser". A fitting name for a dog that catches wild hogs & is also a product of Both German & American Ancestry.
3. Q- What breeds were used in the development of the Price Boar Beisser?
A- The Price Boar Beisser was developed by a combination of American Bulldog, German Rottweiler & American Pit Bull Terrier bloodlines.
4. Q- Why did you Trademark the Price Boar Beisser?
A- I Trademarked the Price Boar Beisser to protect the breed from any future exploitation. Since the rise of the "dog Show culture" countless breeds of working dogs have been hijacked by appearance based breeders. These people have no real knowledge of what it takes (physically or mentally) to make for a strong & functional working dog. These guys will instead breed for things like cartoonish & exaggerated physical features & exotic colors, while others want to breed the drive & strong temperament out of the working dogs altogether in order to produce a more benevolent & mild mannered show dog. The combination of these two groups have completely ruined one good working dog breed after another! By Trademarking the Boar Beisser breed I can have more control of it's future to keep it a working breed, & moving in a "function first" direction!
5. Q- Is the Boar Beisser a fighting dog breed?
A- The Boar Beisser is NOT bred to be a "match dog" (bred for the purpose of fighting for sport, spectating, & gambling) however the Boar Beisser is bred to be the elite in predator control, to perform this task the Boar Beisser must have an inherent desire to pursue & eliminate all kinds of farm paria & dangerous predators such as wolves, coyotes, & even mountain lions. As you might have imagined it takes a dog that is very gritty, game, & effective to accomplish this feet!
6. Q- Is the Boar Beisser a good prospect for protection work?
A- The Boar Beisser can make for a very proficient & formidable protection dog. He is a dog that works best by channeling his high prey drive into the protection ring. The Boar Beisser, being the stoic & confident breed that it is, will (in most cases) see the bite work with the decoy to be a great game more than a real threat! That said, the unique thing about the Boar Beisser is that even though there are many dog breeds that are capable of doing well at protection work, There are very few that have the grit & drive to fight off wild predators & catch aggressive Boars!
7. Q- Will my Boar Beisser get along with my other dogs, chickens, & livestock?
A- If you raise your Boar Beisser puppy up with your other dogs, (& let him know from an early age what you expect of him behavior wise) then he has all the potential to get along very well. Typically males & females will get along better than two dogs of the same sex. If you bring a large aggressive dog in after your Boar Beisser is grown & already set in his ways, then most likely you will have some problems. If raised around chickens & livestock from a puppy (along with strict training) the Boar Beisser can be conditioned to tolerate livestock as well. This being said we must always remember that one of the traits that makes the Boar Beisser what he is, is his high level of prey drive. This must never be compromised!
8. Q- Are Boar Beissers good with the family & children?
A- Yes. The Boar Beisser can be a great family dog, they are very loving & friendly with their human families & love attention. It has been a priority from the very beginning that the Boar Beisser breed be a trusted family guardian. My son & all of his friends have grown up around our Boar Beissers & they have always gotten along well; without question!
9. Q- Which is better suited for a family with children, Male or Female?
A- In my opinion, the female Boar Beisser is a much better choice for a family with children. They are naturally more motherly & gentle with the children of the family & at the same time can be a real mother bear if a stranger tries to trifle with them!
10. Q- How big will my Boar Beisser get?
A- The average weight for an adult male Boar Beisser is between 90-140 lbs. Females average 80-110.
11. Q- What is the life expectancy of a Boar Beisser?
A- A healthy specimen should easily reach 12-14 years.
12. Q- Who would the Price Boar Beisser be best suited for?
A- The Boar Beisser was bred to assist hunters, ranchers, farmers. Families that live in rural areas of the country are the most likely to have a real need for the Boar Beisser's specific set of abilities, however some people living in the inner cities are also finding the Boar Beisser's unique characteristics to be an asset as well! The same traits that give the Boar Beisser the drive to run head long into a charging predator, is the same reason you will have peace of mind as your Boar Beisser holds watch over your home as your family sleeps!
13. Q- Do you do any puppy testing before selling your pups?
A- YES, When it comes to producing high quality working dogs you must be selective! At 3 weeks old we evaluate the litter, any pups that show any sign of mental or physical weaknesses is separated from the breeding quality lineup. At 4 weeks old we reevaluate the litter again. Only the pups that show to be both strong mentally & physically on the second evaluation are allowed to pass as registerable Price Boar Beissers.

16. Q- Can I breed my Boar Beisser to another breed & register the pups that come off of it as Boar Beissers?
A- No. The only way you can produce Registered Price Boar Beissers is to breed one registered Price Boar Beisser to another registered Price Boar Beisser.
17. From time to time we have people ask what we’d think about them using our "Price Boar Beissers" in their bandog programs (or in some other breed crosses)? I’d like to say here that I'm not a fan of it at all. That being said, I also believe that when a person purchases a dog, that person should be able to breed it to what ever they see fit. As long as that person doesn't try to sell the pups as Boar Beissers, or falsely register those pups as Boar Beissers, then I don't have a real problem with it.
