Coco and Luke's puppies born 2/15/2015

The funny thing about dealing with the public is people believe I 'need' to sell these puppies and therefore the price must go down over time, right? Well if I was "trying" to sell them asap I would not be qualifying buyers, I would just hand over a puppy as soon as the first buyer shows up with money. Now one of the reasons I don't put a price on my web page is: people think there is a generic price on puppies.   

If it is real easy to sell these pups with the blue eyes, shouldn't those be a higher price than the ones with the brown eyes? Supply and demand.

And if  the spotted dogs are easier to sell then solid color, shouldn't them leopard markings fetch a higher price as well as the blue eyes? Seems logical to me!

I got blue eyed, leopards, and male and females of each but I am not putting up pictures of every dog in my yard. If you want to see everything I got, YOU NEED TO COME TO MY HOUSE!

Now part of why I don't put pictures of ALL my dogs is: as you can see in the photo below, oftentimes Catahoulas are very camera shy.
The reason they are camera shy is: well bred Catahoulas are often people shy.

To overcome that this breed needs to be socialized, and as you can see in the photo above and below I haul my pups around in boats and trucks early on as much as possible.

  So if you were hoping the price will go down because "I need to get rid of em" please consider that not only am I feeding, watering, and vacineating, I am spending quality time with my pups.

All that and I am preparing them to be ready to work when they get there. These dogs do not make good pets for most people because people are superficial in shopping for color, and are not knowledgeable about what these dogs were bred to do: work!

If you think you are gonna over ride genetics by training them to be a pet, GET REAL! You are not gonna MAKE them into something they were not bred to be in the first place!

Now on the other side, if they weren't bred to work or hunt in the first place you ain't gonna train them to do that either!

How about this: someone called today who wanted me to train his dog. I asked him;"train him to do what?" And his reply: "to do nothing in particular", to which I replied; "And what makes you think you have to train him to DO THAT?"

I MAY BE A COMEDIAN, but I did not make this up.

I am asking 700 dollars for these pups, and the price WILL GO UP,  as I invest more into them.

But you are welcome to call me and make me an offer if you like or just want to inquire about the cheaper, more well suited to be pet variety I also have for sale.

I do not sell dogs by email, OR TEXT, but you can call me at 337 298 2630, and I and the pups are in Lafayette if you are serious about ACTUALLY SEEING what I have for sale.

Tri-colored Catahoula Puppies out of Coco and Luke

 As you can see both Luke and Coco are camera shy , but not around cows or hogs!
Anyway that is a big misconception about Catahoulas: they are shy

 These puppies are NOT shy...

 As you can see, they are very engaging...

Well built and healthy

typical of a catahoula... all in your feet!

 And ready to take a stand to be your best friend...

 Raised up among other great dogs, and decended from generation after generation of champions...

What color? blue leopard, tri-colored, and one gun metal grey, all total 5 females in this litter.

Yes, they got blue eyes, what else you want to know? Ohhh how much?

OK, make me an offer, because the price is irrelevant if you you don't know WHAT THIS IS!

The worlds most versatile working dog, and you better have a job for them if you "just want to 'make' them into a pet!"

All that being said if you want to call and make me an offer, these girls are just about to ship.

Beau and Samuel puppies born August 2014

Beau and Wolf have made a great match.

They have 1 male

and 2 females.

I have handled these pups from the day they were born as birthday imprinting and daily handling like picking them up and walking around, is crucial for something bred this wild to be social and work for you.

Now, as much as I love to see the results of registered foundation breed results, and pure breed working bloodlines, let us remember that the red wolf was a part of the Catahoula gene pool which began about 500 years ago, and in spite of some DNA experts claiming otherwise, the wolf was in there then(hundreds of years ago) and genetically it is still in there now, as all modern domestic breeds evolved from wild wolves at some point in history.

Well here is my take on the wolf gene debate: I believe it was good then and it is good now, so I am producing 1 or 2 litters a year for my friends in the north country who need a long haired working dog.

Samuel is a pure bred white wolf with a black saddle back, to quote my friends from Alaska who run the Ididarod dog sled races, he is the most beautiful wolf they have ever seen.

Well when it comes to working, I have to keep him on a leash during deer season so he doesn't get shot, but this big boy is a blood tracking fool, who I will let off the leash if a deer jumps wounded because Samuel will grab the deer by the neck and take it down unless it is a healthy strong buck who wants to fight. If it is a fight, Samuel goes for the throat to take 'em down!

Worse part of tracking with Samuel is that he gets really excited when we get about 100 yards from the kill if it is gut shot, and if it is NOT dead and starts to move he goes nuts and may actually drag me down because he almost cannot control himself!

 Well, I can't blame him because he knows he is about to have fun.

This dog has personality and so will his pups if they are properly socialized.
