5. Q- Why did you Trademark the Boar Beisser?
A- I Trademarked the Boar Beisser to help 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 breeder's main goal is to produce 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 as a working breed, & moving in a "function first" direction!
6. 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 capable & gritty to be effective at this feet!
7. Q- Is the Boar Beisser a good prospect for protection work?
A- Yes, the Boar Beisser can make for a very proficient & formidable protection dog. It is a dog that works best by channeling it's high preydrive into the protection ring, when properly trained, the boar beisser can bring the same intensity & ferocity into man work as it has when catching hogs & doing predator control!
8. 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 proper training) the Boar Beisser can be conditioned to get along well with most livestock. This being said we must always remember that one of the traits that makes the Boar Beisser what it is, is it's high level of prey drive. This must never be compromised!
9. Q- Are Boar Beissers good with the family & children?
A- Yes. The Boar Beisser was bred to 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.
10. Q- Which is better suited for a family with children, Male or Female?
A- (If I had to choose) I'd say the female Boar Beisser is usually a 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!
11. Q- How big will my Boar Beisser get?

12. Q- What is the life expectancy of a Boar Beisser?

13. Q- Who would the 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!
14. 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 3-4 weeks old we evaluate the litter, any pup that shows signs of mental or physical weaknesses is separated from the breeding quality lineup.
15. Q- Do your pups come with a Guarantee?
A- Yes all registered pups come with a one year Guaranteed to be healthy & free of any Congenital Defects.
16. Q- What Registry is the Boar Beisser registered with?
A- The Boar Beisser is currently recognized by & registered with the APDR & the DRA.
17. Q- Is the Boar Beisser a Bandogge (or Bandog)?
A- NO. The Boar Beisser has absolutely nothing to do with any Bandog program. The Boar Beisser is a distinct breed, with it's own unique history, breed standard, purposes, & breeding criteria. The Boar Beisser has developed completely Separate from any of the myriad of breeding programs calling their new breed "Bandog". I've heard it said in recent times that the "new definition" for Bandogge is any dog with bulldog x mastiff heritage, well by that definition the Bullmastiff, Fila Brasileiro, Tosa Inu, Presa Canario, & Argentinian Dogo are all Bandogges. This would be like calling all dogs with a fighting history a "Pit Bull". See how confusing that would be? For all intents & purposes there really isn't a good reason to refer to the Boar Beisser as a Bandog anyways, from the very beginning the breed has been referred to as Boar Beisser, Registered as Boar Beisser, & Trademarked as Boar Beisser. Although there are many reason's why the Boar Beisser is not a bandog, the most fundamental difference is the fact that you can mix ANYTHING with a bulldog & call it a bandog, however you can only produce a Boar Beisser by breeding one registered Boar Beisser to another registered Boar Beisser!
