Kath Hound

Native to Dantooine, kath hounds are sturdy, horned creatures with a ruff of fur. Although they can be aggressive if threatened or during mating season, they are normally docile, intelligent creatures who take well to training. Kath hounds are popular across the galaxy as guard dogs and pets (although the latter usually have their horns trimmed as a precaution).

Albino kath hounds are rare and highly prized by breeders. On Dantooine, seeing an albino kath hound is considered lucky; there are even stories of albino hounds protecting people lost in the hills. While these stories are unlikely to be more than legends, an albino kath hound is large and intimidating enough to frighten off Dantooine's worst predators, kinraths, which certainly would prey on lost travelers.

I tried the Feral, Vicious and Wild varieties on Alderaan and did not get the codex entry. Also was near a Trained one with no luck.

As of patch 2.5.2, this entry is attainable from the strong "Wild Kath Hounds" that are all over the Glarus Valley on Alderaan. This will provide credit toward the Ilum beastiary making the "Beastmaster of Ilum" and "Galactic Beastmaster" achievements attainable as well as the resulting legacy title "The Beastmaster".

If you're doing the legacy achievement for Balmorra which includes both kath hound and greatmaw hound, check this out.

Defeat 75 kath hounds and greatmaw hounds on Balmorra.

Directions to Greatmaw Hounds: Take the speeder to Sundari Imperial Outpost and take the northern road West towards Gorinth Outpost. After crossing a bridge, you will take a lift at 560,1331 (cursor location), 563,49 (player location). This will lead you into the canyon and the hounds are up and down the road. I finished my achiev. on these guys since I never found the kath hounds at this point.
