One of the first jobs you have when training a hunting dog is to make sure he or she is not gun shy. Hunting dogs are smart creatures. But they are also sensitive - their hearing is a lot more acute than ours. Dogs can hear sounds that are higher and softer than we ever can. Your dog can hear various frequencies at more than twice the range that you can.
If you walk into our Lion Country Supply retail store in central Pennsylvania you should receive a greeting, followed-up by, -Is there anything we can help you with." Regardless of what you are looking for, you can expect an additional question of, -What kind of dog do you have?" It helps in product guidance and just makes for good general conversation.
We can feel it. Can you? We know your dog can. The days are getting shorter and nights are getting cooler. The fall hunting season is right around the corner and all of the hard work you and your dog have put in is about to pay off. Some say there are four seasons in a year but at Lion Country Supply we know there are only two.

E-collars which are also known as remote collars are operated remotely with a handheld controller. While many people consider e-collars nothing more than a shock collar used to correct bad pet behavior, e-collars have greater uses beyond behavior correction. Location tracking is one of those uses. Over the next few weeks we'll be doing a short article series on e-collars.
Some trainers follow strict off-season conditioning regimes for their dog and many begin conditioning just a few weeks before the hunting season begins. And then there are those who never think about off-season conditioning their dog. Can you imagine lying around on the couch for eight or nine months, then suddenly waking one morning to run a 5k road race?
If you are Christmas shopping for the new upland bird hunter in your life you'd probably like to get him that one special Christmas gift like a tracking and training e-collar or remote bird launcher.

With the aid of microscopes and telescopes, we can see things that no other animals can see. With sound amplification equipment, we can hear things that no other animals can hear. But we cannot even begin to approach the olfactory sensitivity of dogs. Dogs live in a world of smells that does not exist for humans, and while most trainers use verbal commands and hand signals to train dogs, the dog's strongest sense is rarely used in training.
At the recent Bird Dog Days event Ed Rader gave some valuable tips on basic gundog training your pup. Ed talked about how dogs are pack animals, and pack animals will respect and obey the leader of the pack. He gave plenty of tips on training with close, hands-on methods using association and repetition. While his training tips are very useful for gun dog training, many of these methods work just fine when training the family dog. Ed says that establishing you as the pack leader are the very basics of where good training begins. If your dog doesn't respect you as the leader he will not perform for you.
The safety of my dogs is my primary concern when hunting. My goals on any hunt, in order of importance, are as follows: Everyone (people and dogs) safe and healthy at the end of the day, the beagles get a good chase, and rabbits get put in the game vest. If you are on this website, then you are a dog guy like me. There are plenty of people in the field, however, who are not. Let me relate a scary narrative for you.
