    The Mountain View Cur Association
TM, accepts breeder's  Classified ads in good faith. MVCA accepts no responsibility for any unethical dealings. Those listed are held to the MVCA Code of Ethics and are raising true IPDBA Registered "Mountain View Curs" and are out of  100% inspected Certified Dogs ONLY,  for many generations (35+ years). For many years, many great MVC's were lost to the breed simply because they excelled in many different canine jobs, so even though they are still primarily used for Tree Dogs, the
MVCA Board now allows the following types of Certification for the Mountain View Cur Breed:
1. Certified Tree Dog  (CTD)
2. Cert. Coyote Decoy Dog (CDD) 3. Search/Rescue Certified (SRC)
4. Drug Dog Certified (DDC) 5. Bomb Dog Certified Dog (BDC)
6. Cert. Antler Shed Dog (CSD) 7. Cert. Game Recovery Dog (CGR)

These are all recognized IPDBA titles and all MVC's MUST have at least ONE or more Certifications, to be permanently registered and used for breeding. If you have good dogs, there is no reason not to first certify your dogs before breeding them, unless you are running a Puppy Mill!

All advertisers below must follow the MVCATM Code of Ethics/contract. Because of their strict breeding requirements, most breeders who raise a few litters annually do not require advertising to place their MVC pups, so you will never see more than a few breeder's listed at one time. Make no mistake VERY high quality MVC's are still available and are improving the percentage of OUTSTANDING dogs every generation and the BEST satisfaction (99.5%) and genetic health record of ANY breed.

MVC Breeders' Wanted!

Beware of imitations, if not IPDBA Registered, they are NOT Mountain View Curs!

How we train your Mountain View Curs

For Tree Dogs.


Take a dead squirrel or coon skin and rub it on a trunk and tie a cord onto squirrel and hang it out of reach in the same tree. We go get the pup (4+ months old) and work them down wind of tree and work them toward the tree. Pup should smell scent, sniff tree and look up tree, some bark without encouragement and some don't. Pull squirrel up and down the tree until pup is barking real good and then drop the squirrel down to them for a reward and run it
up another tree and get them barking up again and let it down to them. It is very rare that a pup will show no interest, but if they don't, just wait month and try again.

As we walk back to the house we throw the squirrel holding on cord to teach them to retrieve them to us. We then make them harder to find and no longer rub on trunk just hang them out of sight, so they use scent in the air to locate and tree. We only do this a few times and once they can locate a dead squirrel high up in a pine or cedar tree so they cannot see them, they are ready to hunt. This can also be done with a coon or bob-cat skin if you hunt them. This programs them to the game you want them to hunt, makes them think game is waiting for them every time we enter a woods, learn that the game will be found up a tree, and how to wind and locate game that has never been down and to tree on body scent. This eliminates them from guessing and makes them very accurate tree dogs.

For squirrel dogs we also like to find some tall bushes lined up in a row and tie some dry squirrel tails on line of a fishing pole and set the tails on top of a bush. We the wiggle it for the pups to tree on and then make the tails look like they jumped to the next bush and so on. As the pup swings a head of the squirrel, we make them think they stopped the tails from topping and then go the other way and do the same. Within 15 mins. they now know how to stop a topping squirrel without being even hunted. Trained hundreds of our Mountain View Curs this way with 100% success.

For Dogging Coyotes.


Use a peace of fresh/frozen coyote skin or tail and tease young pups with it and get them bitting, shacking, pulling on it, praising the pups. Then use it to lay a drag so pup can follow the sent, the pup will then be programed to follow the coyote to find it. Always, praising the pup when they find it. MVC have a strong willingness to please their master, so praising them is very important. Once the pup is 6 or more months old, the pup will natural follow coyote tracks and when they catch up to a live coyote pack they will lead them back to the gun. Coyotes cannot stand dogs in their territory and can't resist chasing anything that runs away from them. They are so focused on what they are chasing, they don't even realize a hunter is waiting for them and will get very close to a shooter. A whole pack can be eliminated one by one on the same hunt as your MVC will run back out and lure them all back over and over. Once your MVC understand that you will kill the coyote for them, they will become dogging coyote machines. For your dogs safty it is best to have two to protect each other from a pack.
