3 Safety Tips for Dogs During Hunting Season From Local Pet Supplies Dealer, Foristell, Missouri

Whether you take your dog hiking, camping, or hunting, you should make sure they stay protected during hunting season. From using bright-colored clothing to leashing your dog at all times, there are many tasks to do to ensure the safety of your canine companion. The pet supplies team at Vehige Enterprises in Foristell, MO, shares how to keep your dog secure in hunting areas below.

Top Safety Tips From Local Pet Supplies Company

1. Dress Your Dog in Bright & Reflective Clothing

When you’re out in the woods with a dog during hunting season, hunters should not mistake your furry friend for wild game. The best way to avoid this is by tying brightly colored bandanas around his neck and outfitting him in reflective vests.

2. Keep Your Dog Leashed

3. Don’t Let Your Dog Chase Animals

Before you go hunting or hiking with your dog, train him not to run after wild game. If your dog chases animals in the woods, hunters are more likely to mistake him for game, or the dog may inadvertently get caught in the crossfire. Train him to follow voice commands and stay close to your side.
