Hunting Dog Supplies – The Most Essential Supplies That Your Hunting Companion Requires

While very hunter has his supplies that he never goes on a hunting trip without, it can be easy to forget about your four-legged hunting companion and his needs. Whether the supplies will help you locate your dog, or keep him in top form, they are all important to every hunt he participates in.

While a well-trained dog can work like a machine, they are still an animal that has independent thoughts and ideas. Some don’t always come back when they should, especially if they are on the scent of an animal. In this case the hunter needs an aid to keep track of his dog in the field. While hunters in the past attached a little bell to their dog’s collar, this will ring as long as he’s moving and will scare prey away. The best bet is to invest in a beeper. When you can’t locate your dog you can sound the beeper and determine where he is or where he’s headed. This can certainly be an invaluable resource when a dog gets lost.

Another essential item every hunting dog should have is a hunter orange vest. These will work just like the hunter’s vests, except they’re outfitted specifically for the dog. It can be difficult to distinguish dark colors when hunting, so a hunter should outfit his dog so he can distinguish him from prey. There could be no worse situation than a hunter harming his own dog or worse because he mistook him for the creature he’s hunting.

Another thing to make absolutely sure of is that your dog is well hydrated while in the field. Dogs push themselves to the breaking point for the sport they love, so a hunter needs to be sure that the dog is kept in top physical health while out hunting. Many outfitters carry collapsible water bowls for your hunting trip. They take up little space and when your dog needs water, they can be opened and used to hydrate your favorite hunting companion. Also important to carry is a canine first aid kit. The local pet supply store will have some available. While dogs are smart animals, they have such passion for what they do, they often aren’t able to recognize when enough is enough, so a hunter needs to make that call for him. With these few tips in mind a hunter can ensure his dog’s utmost health while on the hunting trip.
