  • Dog Bone Hunter Releases New Game Recovery Dog Training System!

    Dog Bone and Professional Trainer and owner, Jeremy Moore, released a new product in the last 24 hours that will assist you training any dog to follow the scent of a wounded or deceased deer or other big game animals to recover every animal you shoot.  Every hunter has lost a deer and knows how devastating that is and this system will take care of that by giving you the proper tools and system to train your dog to track and recovery that big game animal in almost any situation, cover, or weather.  This deer dog game recovery system has the ability to change the hunting game for millions of hunters that take to the woods every year to attempt to harvest a big game animal. This system takes advantage of a dogs keen sense of smell and allows you to just follow that training dog to the large game that is wounded or deceased.  It is that simple, buy the system, train the dog, find more whitetail deer!Wounded Deer tracking system

    One of the best aspects of this training system is the how easy Jeremy made it to follow.  Basically anyone can train their dog to effectively track and find the wounded deer.  The game recover system kit includes all the products you will need and a easy to follow, step by step, guide to the entire training process. Like all the other Dog Bone Products, this kit is made up the highest quality products and components and is a great value.  What other sport can you get into for less than $35 and give you the piece of mind of having a dog able to find your next downed whitetail?  Not many!Game Recovery Dog Training


  • Waterfowl, Upland, Sheds…How Do I Start Dog Training?

    While at a training group last week, a potential puppy buyer was looking at one of my fellow trainer’s stud dog.  We got talking and he said he would love to have a dog that duck hunts, pheasant hunts, and finds shed antlers.  He wasn’t sure if it was even possible.  Is it?  Can you have a dog that does it all?

    Shed Dog training in the snow

    Of course you can!  Dogs are amazing animals, and if you have the right one with a good attitude and a lot of hard work you can teach them to do just about anything.  In the situation of duck, pheasant, and shed hunting- training for each individual task will actually help your dog to get better at the other two.  You will want to start your dog as young as possible.  8-10 weeks is a great time to get the taste of bird wings and shed antlers in their mouths.  During puppyhood, you want to make birds (waterfowl and upland) and sheds the best thing in the whole world to that dog.  You really want to build a strong desire in your puppy for birds and sheds.  You can do this by playing with them with bird wings or sheds, getting them all excited, and then putting the bird or shed away.  You always want to put the bird or shed away with the dog wanting it.  In doing this, they will be excited the next time their bird wing or shed makes an appearance.

    All three of these aspects of training rely heavily on obedience training.  You will want to establish a very reliable obedience foundation.

    Bird Dog Golden retreiving

    From there, you will want to teach a strong “HOLD” command.  This will ensure your dog will hold anything that you put into his mouth whether it is a duck, pheasant, or antler.  Teach your dog to hold all sorts of things.  After that you have the option of force fetching which will give you a reliable “FETCH” command.  Training a dog to be force fetched can be very complicated and easily messed up.  It is best to leave it to a Pro.

    While you are doing all of your obedience training and yard work, you will also want to be showing your dog situations that he will see out hunting.  Do lots of marks on land and water using ducks and pheasants.  It is great to give puppies and young dogs shackled pigeons or another small bird to build their bird desire.  Make hiding sheds for your dog to find a daily occurrence- even if it’s just in the backyard.  Make sure you are using enough shed scent to make finding the shed easier on your pup.   I absolutely love Dokken’s Shed Wax… I carry it in my training bag and just smear some on the antlers that I’m hiding that day.

    Hunting Dog - Golden Retreiver

    When you have a dog that will listen to its obedience commands, retrieve a duck or pheasant thrown in an easy situation, and fetch up a shed in some short cover you have a great basis started.  Its always good to remember when training young dogs make it fun, keep your sessions short, and when they give you what they want… Praise!   Now get out there and start working with your puppies!

    Two most well know personalities in the outdoor world Lee and Tiffany Lakosky, Hosts of “The Crush TV Show” are going to be at the show speaking.  They have long been addicted to the this popularly growing sport and have been great for the growth and popularity of shed dog hunting.  They have even participated in past years events, which has brought additional notoriety to the sport and helped it to grow.

    We are also proud of to be associated with Mr. Jeremy Moore and Dog Bone Shed Training Products, which will be doing training seminars and speaking at the show.  Jeremy is a great guy that loves to train shed dogs (and is dang good at it may we add) and makes some amazing shed dog training products as well.  Jeremy will also be hosting  “Hunters TV” dog "headhunter Sadie" all 3 days.  There will also be an outside area Dog Bone sponsored all 3 days for kids to do a shed hunting and check out some cute brand new puppies (seriously who does not like puppies).

  • 2014 NASHDA Qualifying Event Hunt Test Rules

    NASHDA Hunt Test Rules

    North America Shed Hunting Dog Association (NASHDA)

    2014 Qualifying Event/ Junior Shed Dog Hunt Test Rules

    In Qualifying Events, Dogs will compete against a standard to receive a ribbon, not each other.

    NASHDA’s goal is to create a fun event for those looking to use their dogs to find shed antlers. Our Qualifying Events run from May 1st to the season ending World Shed Dog Championship in April.

    Qualifying events will be set during the season to give dogs a chance to Qualify for that season ending NASHDA World Shed Dog Championship. In qualifying events, the dogs will compete against a standard and not each other to receive a Qualifying ribbon. Once a dog receives a Qualifying ribbon they will be invited to enter the World Shed Dog Championship at the end of that season. The season starts over again each May 1st.

    Qualifying events may also be listed as a Shed Dog Hunt test. For the hunt test, the dogs compete against the Qualifying standard and not each other. Dogs that Qualify at an event marked a NASHDA Shed Dog Hunt Test will earn a NASHDA Shed Hunting Dog Junior leg/ribbon. Once a dog receives 6 leg/ribbons they will receive a NASHDA Junior Shed Hunting Dog certificate. Leg ribbons can be accumulated over multiple seasons. Junior in the NASHDA hunt test division is a description of course difficulty, not age of the dog.
