Send a PM to both Machias and Bearpaw.

I never start my Leopard pups before they are 10 months old.  Most Leopards mature slower than a hound.  Hunting them much before they are mentally and physically mature "generally" is not good for a Leopard.  Who you buying your Leopard Cur from?  I have been running Leopards for about 14 or so years.  My advice is to talk to the breeder and see when the parents turned on and when they started hunting their dogs.  Good luck with your pup and please post some photos and updates on your pup.  :)
