About Me
Understanding Pet Supplies

After I became a pet owner, I could tell that I needed to work a little harder to create a comfortable environment for my little one. I started going through and looking for a great business that could help out, and I realized that the place down the street had most of the products I needed. They were easy to work with, simple to reach and incredible fun to work with. They also had an amazing product inventory that helped me to create the kind of home my pet deserved. This website is all about understanding pet supplies and getting the right items for your home.

A Few Dog Hunting Supplies You Need

Rhonda Owens

Good hunting partners are hard to come by. It can be even harder to find a hunting partner that does not complain about retrieving your ducks and geese for you in the field or the water and is always happy to see you. It is hard to find a hunting companion like this unless that hunting companion is your hunting dog. There is something special about a good hunting dog going to work retrieving, or flushing out pheasants. A good hunting dog can be worth their weight in gold, and that is why it is so important that they have the right gear. Dogs are incredibly tough, but there are pieces of equipment that can really help during a hunt. Here are a few different pieces of equipment that every dog should have:

Insulated Kennel

It does not matter if you are hunting ducks and geese in Iowa, or pheasants in North Dakota, your dog deserves to have an insulated kennel. The drives to and from hunting locations can be incredibly cold, and it should be the top priority that the dog is warm. If you get an insulated dog kennel, your dog will be warm and ready to go to work retrieving or flushing out those birds.


A vest can serve a couple of different purposes. You can use a vest as a protection against sharp objects, or you can use the vest to keep the dog warm. Some vests are actually built to do both of these jobs. For water fowl hunting, a neoprene vest is often the best choice because it will keep the dog warm, but you can get neoprene vests with protective chest shields. No matter the hunting or the hunting dog you will be able to find a vest that fits the style of hunting.


A dog's feet are important to them, and the pads can actually become quite worn down. This is especially true if you are hunting on frozen ground that tends to be very sharp.You will be able to find your dog a set of foot protectors. Sometimes they can look like boots, but more often than not, they are designed to be a simple pad protector. Watch for blood in the snow to know if your dog's feet are starting to hurt. A dog with worn out pads is going to be useless for a couple of weeks, and you do not want your dog to be in pain.
