One of the most favorite pastimes of pet dog owners nowadays are bird hunting, but there are no guns, only their pets. Yes, dogs are always popular for their hunting instincts when they are in the wild. So, instead of pulling a trigger at a bird, which is mostly illegal in some parts of the world, why not give your pet hunting dog training?
Who can train my dog for hunting?
Training dogs for hunting needs a very specialized skill. Only professionals who have spent more time in this field can qualify to train dogs. This is precisely because dogs tend to be aggressive when their hunting instincts are turned on. You can find plenty of these professional trainers in your area. The most likely places you can find them are in veterinary clinics and home dog training centers.
Can I teach my dog how to hunt?
Even if you have not exposed your dog to hunting training, professionals say you can still give them some introduction. The most common commands that trainers use in hunting are “heel”, “come”, and “whoa”. “Whoa” is particularly the most important. It means stop for the dog. You can practice your dog by uttering “whoa” every time you would like the dog to stop doing whatever action.
The trick is to give your pet a reward every time he gets the command right. You can give them food or a hug. But if you are serious in taking your dogs in the hunting world, contact a veterinarian now for intensive hunting dog training.
