 The Dog Men are poor lowlanders that live along the edges of the rivers in 'open pen' houses (see image, below), usually forming family communities of no more than a score of people -- perhaps three or four open pen houses along a narrow trail no larger than a wagon. Open pen houses have two rooms -- one for sleeping, and the other for cooking and heating. Between the two rooms lies the 'dog run'. The whole open pen house is often located on stilts anywhere from two to twenty feet off the ground, depending on the location. The Dog Men are poor lowlanders that live along the edges of the rivers in 'open pen' houses (see image, below), usually forming family communities of no more than a score of people -- perhaps three or four open pen houses along a narrow trail no larger than a wagon.

 They call themselves the 'Dog Men' because of their fierce ties to their dogs, used for protection as well as hunting; the dogs are a necessary part of their lives. The dogs respond to voice commands, as well as short-horn commands, and are used to tree smaller game such as squirrels and raccoons, and corral larger game such as feral hogs. Once treed or corralled, the baying of the hounds lets the hunters know where to be, following the baying through the woods, so that the hunters can pick off their prey. Armed with slings and bows, the Muck Men are excellent shots. When corralling a herd of swine, the faster and more maneuverable dogs will keep the wild hogs in position until the hunters can arrive, pick off the larger of the hogs, and then call off the dogs so that the swine can rush off into the lowlands. They call themselves the 'Dog Men' because of their fierce ties to their dogs, used for protection as well as hunting; the dogs are a necessary part of their lives.
