I got permission from an internet friend to post some of his Youtube videos on my blog.
He hunts down south, and I'm pretty jealous of all the space they have down there (and the oodles of pigs). There's a lot more big game hunters down there, as opposed to all the bird hunters up here where I am.
There's a wide variety of dogs used, but since I'm partial to the working Japanese breeds, I'm posting video of some of their dogs in training, a Kishu and Yakushima to be exact.
Just a warning: Hunting videos can be a bit gory and are unpleasant to some. If you're one of those people don't click on the video.
Kishu do quite a bit of 'catching', but most any hunting dog will if they're in a pack and feel they are strong enough to take the pig. I prefer my dogs bay, I think you get less injuries that way.
This is a pretty non gory vid, just young dogs learning to bay a big pig.
