    Hunting dogs


    I was wondering if anyone knows how to train a dog not to be afraid of gun shots while hunting?
    I do a podcast about pets with my sister called: FurBalls & DogBones - A great resource for all things pets!

    I heard you have to get them used to the noise when they're puppies. Some start out with guns that aren't real for training, a more advanced version of the old cap guns that children played with decades ago. Also, take them where there's target shooting going on, but stay a distance away at first, and slowly get closer until they are used to the sound.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
