Hunting dog collars: how to choose the right one?
Hunting is one of the hobbies that you can share with your dog - it is always better to have company when you’re in the woods. No matter if you have been hunting for some time or you are just beginning you know that it is important to have the right gear - this is also valid for your dog.
The basic things you need to carry with you are food and water for you and your dog and don’t forget that your dog needs a suitable bow - there are many foldable opinions on the market that will be perfect for the occasion. And most importantly, before going on your adventure make sure that your dog has the right collar for your hunting trips.
This topic is very discussed amongst the hunting society on the internet - some people prefer to buy hardcore training equipment for their dogs - from kennels and kennel covers, through gear for hunting different animals (mostly birds) to a dog training collar.
The training collar is suitable for serious hunters that will be hunting on vast terrain and need to communicate with their dog at all times. They often choose a hunting collar with vibration, static shock and electric shock - that way they can control their dog even if it is out of their sight.
If you are not comfortable with such a collar and you plan to keep your dog at your side, there are better choices for a hunting collar - we would recommend DoggoCollar tracking collars because they are durable, reliable, have a precise tracking device and can also be used in your everyday adventures with your four-legged pal.
The perfect collar for your hunting adventures
Before embarking on your first hunting adventure there are some things you should do - the first one is to train your dog perfectly. It is important to have good communication with your four-legged friend at all times and to be sure that he/she will hear and understand all your commands.
He/she should obey commands strictly and know that it should always come when you call her/him. If you want your dog to be trained in a perfect manner, it’s better to use the help of a professional trainer.
So, the time for choosing the right collar finally came! The main things that you should consider are durability, comfort, easy maintenance and colour, a bonus will be if the collar has a tracking device so you can have information about your dog’s location at all times.
DoggoCollar tracking collars have everything listed above and more! They are perfect for everyday use in the city and all your adventures in the mountains, the park or the seaside. Below we listed some of its best qualities to help you make your decision.
Durability & comfort
DoggoCollar collars are made from high-quality materials on the inside and the outside - with a polyester outer part and neoprene inner part the collars are perfect for extreme conditions. When you go on a hunting trip you know that your dog will go through mud and water and dry leaves and probably everything he/she sees on the way.
Those materials are very sturdy and won’t lose their qualities over time - even after your hundredth hunting adventure, the DoggoCollar collar will look exactly like the day you bought it.
You can be sure that after the mud fiasco you will be able to wash the collar with ease and put it on your dog again. Neoprene is a highly hygienic material that doesn’t cause itching, allergies or makes your dog scratch because it is important for your dog to feel comfortable during every adventure in each season.
The stitching and edging are very important in a collar that has the ambition to withstand time - the threads used for all seams are as strong and durable as the rest of the collar, they are also very discreet so they won’t irritate your dog. Your pet will get used to the collar so quickly that he/she will probably forget that it is there.
The quick-release magnetic buckle makes the collar very easy to put on and to take off - this means that if you had previously taken off your dog’s collar it would be very easy to put it back on even if you are already in the woods, ready to begin your hunting trip.
In terms of safety, it is very important that you can put an ID tag on the dog’s collar and choose a suitable collar - even if you have a tracking device, your dog can still run away and be found by people who don’t know you. When you have put your phone number on the dog collar it would be very easy for anyone to call you and give your dog back.
When you are choosing a collar for a hunting dog you should consider the brighter colours, preferably orange. Orange is one of the colours that is spotted very easily from a great distance and is usually associated with hunting equipment or signal stripes or jackets. If you want to fashion things up, you can always choose bright pink for your hunting gear.
Another aspect of the personalization of the collar is how it fits your dog - it is crucial that the collar is a perfect fit for your dog throughout his/her whole life. Be sure to check now and then that you can put two fingers between the collar and your dog’s neck - it shouldn’t be very tight causing breathing problems but it shouldn’t be very loose either, because your dog could easily wiggle out of the collar.
When going on an adventure in the woods it is very useful to have a tracking device on your dog and have the ability to know where he/she is at every moment - DoggoCollar tracking collars will give you exactly that.
In this variant of the collar, we combined the durability and comfort of the regular collar with the preciseness of a GPS tracking device used mainly in different rescue missions. The device sends signals via GPS to the nearest satellite and you can access them with a web-based app. This means that the signal has a very wide range and you can obtain information about your dog wherever you are.
With DoggoCollar tracking collar, you will have information about your dog at all times and you will always know if your pet has seen something interesting when he/she stops at one particular place.
If your dog is more agile and is always on the move, you can put the tracking device on “live mode”, updating the information about the location of your dog every 2-3 seconds.
DoggoCollar tracking collar will be your perfect partner in your next hunting trip - with functions like live tracking and geofencing you will be sure that your dog won’t get lost in the woods. With the bright orange colour of the collar, he/she will be visible at all times giving you the opportunity to concentrate on your hunting and the adventure itself instead of worrying about your four-legged friend.
