Protect And Monitor Your Dog During Hunting Trips That They Attend With You


If you plan on taking your dog hunting with you in the near future, consider purchasing the following items to assist with keeping your dog protected and monitoring where they are located throughout each excursion.

Waterproof/Windproof Fleece-Lined Coat

Measure the distance between the base of your dog's neck and the base of their tail in order to purchase a coat that will fit properly. A fleece-lined coat that has an outer layer that is waterproof and windproof will keep your dog warm and prevent them from getting soaked or possibly catching a cold if they walk or swim through a pond, lake, or another body of water or if they encounter a rainstorm. Coats have adjustable straps that will not cut off circulation or place pressure on your pet's body. 

Dog Tracking Collar

A tracking collar has a GPS (Global Positioning System) installed inside of it that will help you monitor the location of your dog whenever you would like. You can program the system so that it notifies you through your phone or another mobile device. Collars are lightweight and are usually made out of a material that can be submerged in water. Some collars are designed to alert an owner if a collar remains underwater, which could be indication of an accident that could lead to drowning or a serious injury.

If you have trained your pet to track animals while on a hunting trip, you will be able to keep up with their activity level. If your pet stops moving, note their location and find them with ease in order to ensure that they aren't in any danger.

Low-Pitched Whistle

A low-pitched whistle can be used to alert your dog, but it will not be a nuisance to any other hunters. Place a whistle on a lanyard so that you can easily access it when needed. In order to efficiently train your pet, use the whistle before you take your dog on a hunting trip. Blow the whistle and call your pet soon afterwards. Each time that they obey you, offer praise and a small reward, such as a bone or pet snack.

Once your dog gets used to the whistle, you can use it with confidence each time you go hunting. If you lose sight of your pet and would like them to return to you right away, simply blow the whistle and wait for them to appear.
