Pet Pause: Hunting Safety with your pet

By Natalie Sparacio

WAKE UP WISCONSIN (WAOW)-- Before you head out on the hunting trail this season, there are some safety tips to keep in mind for your hunting dog.

Dolores Glytas, from Wisconsin Federated, joined us on Wake Up Wisconsin with tips on how to stay safe this season.

Just like normal training, a dog should be trained as a puppy to follow commands. Your dog should at the very least respond to "come", "sit", and "stay" for their safety.

Make sure you put blaze orange on your pet as well.

If you're a non-hunter, and if your dog goes around in the woods, make sure they're wearing blaze orange as well.

Before you go hunting with your dog, make sure you have a first aid kit available.

If an accident happens, stay calm and call your vet as soon as possible. Check for a heart beat, take objects out of the dog's mouth and place the dog on its left side and cover your pet with a blanket.
