They smell the same to me, but, if you keep your piglets on concrete and wash them down good with one of the many fragranced shampoos, they will smell a lot better.

OK, all kidding aside, I don't really know. But, since wild hogs are descendants of once domesticated hogs that were once wild hogs, logic would seem to imply the scents are going to be substantially similar. I don't hunt with hog dogs and know very little about it, so someone else will have to give you a more definitive answer. However, they do actually smell the same to me.

Pig is a pig. A dog's nose is so good that if there is a slight difference between your training pigs and the wild ones you'll be hunting, your dogs won't care. They'll know what they're after.
