Last week we headed out for a grouse hunt with Storm and Freighter.  They were so excited to get out in the forest and do some hunting, they could not contain their excitement.  They headed off running together.  It was a warm day with no wind and we knew that once they started hunting, they would get heated up pretty fast.  We told them to slow down and tried to discourage too much running before we actually started hunting.

But brown dawgs are all about fun so off they went…

Our dogs train all year long and are in good condition.  They had no problem hunting for about an hour and a half.  Grouse hunting requires constant moving through thick cover and trees.  We made sure to stop often and water them which is important so your dog does not overheat.  If you want to read more about our actual hunt, check out this post.

  1. I love seeing dogs in running action!! Thank you for mentioning your Sojos giveaway – we have used their great grain-free dog food mix along with the raw we feed our pups, but haven’t tried their treats yet!

  2. So cute! This is the first of your posts that I am seeing but I will definitely be coming back for more. I love seeing dogs play and be happy. Your dogs are all beautiful, too.

  3. It’s so great to see them running and so happy, and to know that they are fit enough that they still have the energy for some hunting!

  4. Hi Y’all!

    A friend with an Irish Wolfhound mix that he uses to hunt Coywolves and wild boar said his dog is crazy about the Salmon SoJos Simply Wild. My Human has promised to get me some. Hope she remembers.

    Y’all come on by,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  5. Sampson is not and never has been an athletic dog, he’s just not built for it, but Delilah is pure athlete. She’s beautiful to watch in motion and I suspect it is the same with your guys. Do you love just watching them run?
