I read somewhere that people use dogs to help find sheds. Has anyone else heard of this? If so how do you get your dog to do so?
Thanks

I've never heard of anyone using dogs looking for the sheds. Wisconsin recently legalized using dogs for blood tracking - Sounds like it would work - good luck!!

Thanks, Very Happy I've been talking to a lot of people and asking if anyone has heard about it. Most said no!! I'll pass this on.

I took my 15 wk old pup out yesterday and I found a shed right away. Of course I brought him up on it and hopefully made him feel like he found it by himself. He earned of praise and we'll see how it works as time goes on.

I have trained my labs for shed hunting with great sucess and after
about a year of research I am now on a list for a GWP pup.
I sounds like it will be a great dog for us, for shed hunting as well
as a great addition to the family.

I have been using a shed in place of a dummy ocaisionally and now my 4 mo GWP loves to search for the shed when I toss into tall grass and brush.

I'm hoping this will teach her that a shed is a valuable object to bring back to me.

Great, when you're out hunting birds you'll be the only one. Your dog will be searching for moldy old antlers. Rolling Eyes

People use their GWP's for lots of things in the field, they do much more than be bird finders, and can do multiple tasks.

My dogs bring home lots of things, some that are good, some not so good. But this doesn't stop them from being excellent bird dogs!

This is one reason they are considered a versatile breed... they are able to do many things, and switch gears from one to another with ease.

This is a recent picture from a training session where we did both bird work and had some fun searching for sheds that I tossed into the weeds and brush.

That is cool, that is one thing I have not taught my dog to do. Might have to dog that yet.

Thanks for sharing.
