I've hunted these laikas since the 90's on small game, squirrels,coons. They would make great Hog dogs, but while him hunting hogs I worry if I tried to train a pup that has been bred up for small game in the states it will be treeing squirrels while I'm trying to bay hogs. I know they would make a good hog dog and would love sale all of my curs that I use on hogs if I could have 2 fine baying laikas. Their instinct to tree and we have so many squirrels, training to hog Hunt would be a night mare haha! Has anyone tried to make them a straight hog dog?
