I am Lee Carr. I started Hog Dog Productions in 2002 for the purpose of promoting and providing venues for agility in particular and dog sports in general. Hog Dog Productions is a company for and about dogs. Hog Dog is located in central Maryland, just south of BWI airport. I have been been active in dog agility since 1994. Hog Dog controls 33 acres of land, some of which has been groomed and tailored for specific use as agility trial space. (See our facilities page for details and other uses.)
My first dog in agility was Jax, an Alaskan Malamute, not your typical competitor. Luke, a Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog followed. Luke and I earned my first Championship title, a NATCH, together. My Bordehoula (half Border Collie and half Catahoula) Flip led me into USDAA . Sadly, Flip perished in my house fire January 16, 2009. Also living with me are Ting, a Miniature Pinscher and Boarus, another Catahoula, “little” Dave, the Chihuahua. My latest agility companion is Angus, a Border Collie. New to the house is Nigel, a Manchester Terrier.
Why Hog Dog?
Hog dog is a nickname for the Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog. The Catahoula is the state dog of Louisiana and one of the first purebred dogs bred in the United States. The Cajuns originally used the dogs for rounding up their livestock after letting them forage in the bayous. Boarus is my second Catahoula, but surely not my last!
Hog Dog Productions has been a USDAA club since 2007. See the USDAA page for more details.
