    Question about my now deaf dog...

    I have a 14 year brittany who's hearing has diminished over the past couple years. I always run my dogs with a Garmin GPS to ensure I know their location at any time. When I hunt heavy cattails with 2 dogs, it is very helpful to understand if they are still close. A quick glance at the Garmin...

    Dog Kennel

    I am looking to replace my current galvanized chain link dog kennel with a welded wire dog kennel to meet HOA requirements. Preference is for the kennel to be painted black. However, I can have the kennel custom painted. Does anyone know of kennel manufacturers who sell welded wire kennels?

    Is the population of skunks up this year? Hunt 3 fields and saw 7 skunks. Unfortunately, my young dog got sprayed. Had enough hydrogen peroxide and baking soda mix for a good bath in field. Went to Wal-Mart for more supplies and they were nearly sold out. Two more baths and 95% of the...

    DC 40 Collar

    Has anyone had issues with the DC 40 Collar holding a charge? My collar appears to have a battery that will not hold a charge or the unit is not shutting down completely when I turn it off. The unit is current on all software updates. Let me know if you have had similar problems. Thank you.
