  1. I absolutely love the GPS trackers; we got one for our dog early on even though we don’t hunt–she did. I loved how I could always see where she was and what she was doing. And then, later, we could replay the track of her adventures.

  2. Dog cooling vests are amazing! My dog, Henry, is dark colored with thick fur. I got him a cooling vest the first year I adopted him. It’s perfect for Spring and Summer hikes. I’m amazed at how long it stays cool. I need one!
    The CrittEar dog earplugs are fascinating with all the benefits the provide dogs. I’m so intrigued! I just ordered a pair today. 🙂

  3. Although I don’t hunt, all of these items seem like a great choice for hunting dogs. I know someone who suffered permanent hearing loss due to hunting. Crittear seems like a great choice for dogs exposed to loud noises.
