This breed is easy to groom. An occasional combing and brushing is all that it needs. Bathe only when necessary. This breed is an average shedder.


The Leopard Cur should not be confused with the pure Catahoula Leopard Cur or the American Leopard Hound. Leopard Curs are a cur dog of any kind mix with a Catahoula Leopard Dog, often with different types of hounds in them.
