Hunting Dog Gift Guide

Whether you’re actually buying gifts for your canine this year (we won’t judge, everybody does it), or looking to help someone on your shopping list train or better use their dog while out in the field, we’ve got some great suggestions for gifts.

For starters, a neoprene vest like the RedHead Deluxe Neoprene Dog Vest will essentially be an insurance plan for your pup. The thin and lightweight insulation keeps your dog warm and protected from scratches or scuffs, especially underneath the surface of a lake, river or pond. A useful removable flotation device is great for giving your dog a little extra help when he or she hits the water.

Along the same lines, these RedHead Deluxe Kevlar Dog Boots are going to keep your pet’s feet clear of stickers, thorns and cactus better than just about any other similar product. Incredibly sturdy kevlar material provides secure protection, fit, and comfort for the foot and the shin. The no-slip bottom is great for snow or ice, and will protect foot pads from bruises or abrasions.

If you’re going to get serious about training your dog to accompany you while hunting, a training collar is essential. The Garmin Delta Sport Dog Trainer is top-of-the-line, with remote control, LCD display and varying modes to communicate with. It has a ¾ mile range, and is the first electronic dog training system with the BarkLimiter voice suppression aspect built in.

Some reading material can go a long way when attempting to train dogs, and turning to the experts is always a good decision. Thanks to pro trainer Tom Dokken, you’ve got both Gun Dog Retrievers and Pointing Dogs as your options.

And of course, a visit to the dog training section of an online retailer is never complete without a quick purchase of some dog treats, and Porkhide Ear Chews are a perennial favorite.

There’s nothing quite like a well-trained dog accompanying you while on the hunt, so be sure to add your pooch to your holiday shopping list.
