Transcript of Hunting Strategies - Dogs

Game Hunting strategies By Abel Cuevas and Kathryn Tekell Hunting Dogs Hunting Strategies Dogs also may be used to help flush, herd, drive, track, point at, pursue, or retrieve animals. Training a Game Dog When using a dog to hunt, it is important to think about the breed in relation to the job you want the dog to perform Hounds are further divided into two categories: scent hounds and sight hounds. The main difference between the two is that sight hounds tend to work quickly and quietly while scent hounds have deep, booming barks that they use when following a scent trail. Gun Dogs These dogs are used primarily by small game hunters using shotguns. Gun dogs are classified as retrievers, flushing spaniels, and pointing breeds. These are the smallest hunting dogs. Their size, combined with their thick coats, makes them great companions when game may have fallen or taken cover in thick brush. They possess intelligence, versatility and obedience, making them ideal hunting candidates. Their soft mouths, like retrievers, allow them to retrieve prey without causing any damage. E-Collars: Electric shock collars punish dogs for disobeying commands. Timing is important for this method to work correctly, though, so an experienced trainer should execute the shocks. Rewarding good behavior teaches dogs to associate it with positive results. This is a method that relies on the dog's ability to learn. Positive reinforcement Hunting dogs are used for locating, targeting, and killing the animal. There are different methods in training dog as hunting companions.

It's known to be in the area, but hasn't often come into open view. The aid of a dog's sense of smell could reduce the amount of time it takes to locate prey.

•Stand hunting: Dogs aren't as useful in stand hunting (a common method of deer hunting), in which the hunter picks a location and waits there for animals to expose themselves.

•Stalking: Hunters track down an animal that they can see but is too far away for a clean shot. They slowly move toward it, trying not to be seen or heard. A dog might not be the best companion here because it may not be quiet enough.

•Driving: A group of hunters will intentionally make noise in hopes of scaring their game and forcing it out into the open. This method is very appropriate for hunting with dogs [source: the Hunting Dog]. Spaniels The different types of hunting are. . . Dog Whispering A dog whisperer is a person with the capacity to understand and interpret canine communication. A dog whisperer can be helpful in correcting canine behavior issues and training. This is an unconventional way of dealing with your dog. This is very basic training for obedience commands and usually isn't sufficient enough for a practicing hunting dog. It serves as a foundation, but more intensive training should follow. Conventional Training Chocolate Labrador Retriever Brittany Spaniel Gordon Setter THE END!
