Deer Dog: Loading and Unloading Dogs for Travel

Loading and unloading dogs for travel is an often overlooked aspect of training. That's a mistake.

Getting your dog safely in and out of the vehicle is a key to safety and long-term health. Dog guru Jeremy Moore of Dog Bone offers tips for loading and unloading your deer dogs when traveling.

Allowing your young lab to jump in and out of your truck is something Moore doesn't recommend as it can put undue stress on joints. Hold off on allowing the dog to load itself until at least one year of age. Barreling out of a crate or kennel upon arriving at your destination is another habit to break. By training your dog to sit calmy in the crate until released, you can keep your dog out of harm's way.

Check out the video for these and other top-notch tips.
