They are known for being tenacious and courageous with a strong desire to work. This is a intelligent breed who shows great loyalty to their family. Given proper training they can herd animals, track game, work in search and rescue, and excel in all sorts of dog sports.
Being an intelligent working dog, they require exercise and something to do. A long run or brisk walk once a day is not enough to keep them occupied. They do very well in active homes where they are allowed to participate in the family's activities.
The Black Mouth Cur can be territorial - it is bred to be a homestead dog that would protect home and family from intruders - and it should be socialized from an early age. They thrive on love, encouragement, and attention.
