They are very vocal as they are a hound. Awsome dogs can be aloof at first to strangers, and do not take well to being Alone. Hard chargers in the woods and fearless. Not a water dog though. Introduce to water young and take it slow getting them used to it and he will take to it. Not like a chessie or lab but won't mind
I am a fisherman, & I'm looking for a new best friend that will enjoy the water with me & play fetch & protect the house & enjoy doing lots of the fun things I enjoy.
I'm still leaning strongly in the direction of the CBR, but since the Plott came up as a 100% match as well & so I thought I would research what I can on them before I make the 10+ year commitment to a dog.
& from what I've read so far the Plotts are fine in the water & even have webbed feet just like the CBR, Lab & many other water type dogs.
I like the idea of a dog that could chase a bear away, being I enjoy camping.
The dog could keep the bear at bay while we pack it up to get away from there.
