Bobtail Catahoula Association
The mission of the Bobtail Catahoula Association is to preserve and maintain the genetic
heritage of the bobtail trait within the Catahoula breed, through education
and responsible breeding practices.
Our Primary Goals
To establish an understanding of the bobtail trait in the
history of the breed and the mode of genetic inheritance of the gene.
To collect and record data and statistics on bobtail pups whelped in litters
and to monitor these pups and any future generations they may produce.
** Bobtail DNA Study **
The BCA has taken part in a bobtail DNA study in France, sponsored by -
