Hunting dogs are specialized creatures – they are great at locating prey and flushing it out for the hunter. Some can even retrieve! Many of us are surprised to learn that many dogs are perfectly comfortable with the sound of a gun – that’s what makes them so unique. That’s why for hunting dogs hearing protection is a must.

Why Hunting Dogs Hearing Protection Is Important

While many hunting, or gun dogs, tolerate the sound of a hunting gun, that doesn’t mean it isn’t affecting their hearing. A dog’s ear muscles do a wonderful job at absorbing sound – initially. But just like any part of the body – fatigue soon takes over. When this happens, the sound energy can wreak havoc on their cochlea (inner ear with hair-like fibers made for hearing).

This is why hearing protection for a hunting dog is so important – and our CrittEar hunting dog solution doesn’t get in the way of recall sounds, etc.
