Kit for dog on extended trips

What stuff do you carry for your dog on a hunting trip?

I carry the basics but wonder if there are some other handy little things that I should adopt. Deer hunting not pig hunting.

Cheers.

Just food and her neoprene coat if the forecast looks a bit chilly.

One of those folding portable dog bowls to dispense water are very handy.   Train your dog to drink out of it before you go..

  

We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.

Take a chain. Doesn't have to be massive, just enough to tie it to a tree for the night. Sleeping next to your dog sounds great but in reality they are a pain in the arse. The tree needs to be far enough away that you can't hear the dog scratching, whining or nibbling.

The first time your dog rolls in shit you will thank me.  Smiley

I take a double ended (catch at both ends) chain or two and some post staples. I have super light chains. Can loop it around something or connect to timber. You only need a neoprene vest if you have a Visla  Grin Grin I also take high energy high quality dog biscuits if the dogs are working hard (pig dogs). The Exceed capsules or liquid are also very good to give them a boost. I also some times take in a small blue tarp and make a shelter and put dead ferns on the ground. They are then cosy as. Always point the open end of the shelter down stream and away from prevailing wind. At night the breeze goes down and that is when they need shelter. As far as first aid some clavulox, a stapler, some anti histo tablets and salt (for solution for flushing wounds) are good to go. Some guys take celox (clotting gel) as well.  Wink

+1 for letting them sleep outside,  a small tarp would be good.

Although my Lab was born with a coat and hence doesnt need neoprean, it does has have a tendency to eat what ever it can find. 

So something to make them puke?

is it washing soda crystals?  1080!

Yup a first aid kit for your dog. So anti 1080 vomit , tweezers, round nose scissors, self adhering bandage, gauze pads and eye wash.

Yes, washing soda crystals. From countdown. About $5 a bottle.
Tie dog up before you get the crystals out or the dog may not let you catch it.
Jam dog between your knees, hold it over the nose with your fingers making it open its mouth.
Jam a handful of crystals into its mouth and keep its nose up so it has to swallow some.
Dog will puke in about 30 seconds.
Have a good look to see what dog puked up, then move dog away so he cant re eat it.

Better living everyone 😂

Put it in the small brown plastic pill bottles with the white lid. Keeps it dry and stops it forming in to one lump. You can then just empty the whole thing in to dogs mouth if needed. They don't need heaps. If your dog can find enough to eat off a carcass in a 1080d area then you are going in too soon. Ten months plus should be your wait time. I carry it in areas where brodi is used. More and more of that shite around these days and it is now often double strength too.
