Introducing Your Puppy To Hunting

Avoid Making Your Dog Gun Shy

An important aspect to dog hunting training that many hunters get wrong is how they introduce their dog to gunfire.  Although gunfire introduction for a dog requires detailed explanation, there are some steps you can take for your dog to avoid developing gun shyness. 

You should:

  •          Never shoot over a young dog’s head without a gradual introduction to loud noises.
  •          Over time, gradually introduce loud sounds to your dog when it is a puppy.
  •          Use gunfire training audios that play the sound of gunfire gradually to your dog.
  •          Introduce a gun first by sight and scent, and eventually sound.
