Lay a bear trail with a dragged scent and allow your dog to follow the trail. Reward locating the scented object at the end of the trail or in a tree with playtime and high value treats. Introduce your dog to a pack for hunting bear and start locating live bear trails and following.
How does bear hunting with dogs work?
What is bear hounding? Hounding involves hunters and guides using packs of radio-collared hounds to pursue bears until the exhausted, frightened animals seek refuge in a tree (where they are shot) or turn to fight the hounds.
What smells do bears hate?
Bears also dislike the strong scent of pine-based cleaners, but avoid using anything with a fresh, lemony or fruity smell. And never mix bleach and ammonia; the combination produces fumes that can be deadly to both people and bears.
