"weight pull training" at my local shelter (uh oh)

Hey gang - I wanted to see if I can maybe get some input/suggestions from Leslie, Ellie, Jenn and the rest of the wp people here. I sent an email to the shelter staff about this video saying that theres some potentially concerning stuff about the way this is being conducted (its pretty cringe-worthy...

Re: Hog Hunting--too dangerous for rescue dogs?

Well cared for is not the description I'd use for a captive animal that is baited. :goodpost: There would be outcry if people kept a dog for that purpose. Eradicating an invasive pest that causes all harm and no good has a different set of standards. The methods for killing rats is far from humane,...

Re: Hog Hunting--too dangerous for rescue dogs?

Re: Hog Hunting--too dangerous for rescue dogs?

Thanks Leslie! I am certainly of the belief that practicing anything will lead to improvement. I understan cdthat its common practice too - we've all seen the youtube vids of pups being Schooled on hogs. I guess I have more of a moral objection to baiting a captive animal. I know nothing about the p...

Re: Hog Hunting--too dangerous for rescue dogs?

i have no problem with dogs catching hogs but to say they need "training" by using a penned animal sounds silly to me. they have been catching wild animals for tens of thousands of years. this reeks eerily like the "bait dog" deal.

for sale: drag sled and practice pull cart

so... i've got a few dust collectors sitting around and thought i'd see if anyone here is interested. the practice cart is made out of pressure treated 4x4 posts and 2x6's. it has pneumatic tires each rated for 250lbs. It would have no problem holding 600lbs+ safely. it measures 5' x 3' so it has a ...
