    Great video! One thing that I really wish is that people would respect the leash laws on trails. We live in Maine and love hiking. We purposely choose trails that are marked "dogs must be leashed at all times" because one of mine is super reactive when confronted by an off leash dog. Apparently , many people take that as a suggestion. As people are yelling to me "don't worry my dog is friendly" I am trying to keep my dog from reacting and ultimately end up with a pulled muscle at the very least. Then as they walk by and I have my dog pinned to the ground so that I can protect their dog, they have the nerve to scowl at me as if I am the one in the wrong. We have even gone as far as to yell up ahead and kindly ask "could you please leash your dog" to which they reply "my dog is friendly". We have given up. If she bites a dog who runs up and gets in her face, it will be me who is sued even though I am following the rules. Now we are resigned to walking them behind large box store parking lots where we never see other people walking dogs. It is miserable, but the only way to get them exercise. The worst part is there is no one watching the trails so no reason for anyone to follow the rules.

    Whenever I need advice with something specific like this I am always so happy to see that you've made a video on it. Your advice has not failed me yet as many other channels have. Thank you so much!

    Good Feedback, The only two things I saw were 1. Being alert to what your dog alerts too. 2. Inspect canines foot pad inspections by rubbing fingers between toes after a walk. During a hike, it is optional as to types of terrain. Six basic dog training commands just for the fun of knowing. For all trained canines. Sit, Down, Stay, Come, NO, and the hard one HEAL. This command the dog returns to handlers left-side of leg and sits, with dogs rightsholder on the Handlers left leg. "Good stuff, well done".

    Every single dog I've had was trained on a retractable. When we lock it's a walk. when it's unlocked it's casual free dog time. It gives the most freedom. I wish this guy was still making videos. He is usually on point.

    I absolutely love your videos! They are beyond helpful. However there is one thing with this video. A lot of wild animals in areas such as Wildlife parks actually associate a bear bell as a dinner bell. So it’s not always a great idea to use one!

    The problem is always the people, not the dog. If you have a balanced dog he or she will always look at you what you want in a certain situation. Its all a matter of knowing your dog and act like it as a leader. Most people who are living in a city don't know that at all. Then they start hiking, well, that is never going good at all…

    My tips for doggy first aide is to keep a muzzle in your kit along with teaching your dog to feel comfortable wearing a muzzle. Worst case scenario you might have to treat a serious wound and a muzzle might be required so you can treat it better, with breaks to let your pooch breathe of course.
    My second tip is to know where the nearest vet (especially emergency clinics) is to you, and do research before hiking a new trail, etc. Also, I would recommend keeping a copy of your vet records on your phone and a copy in your car. Speaking of vets, if you find ticks on your dog, don't attempt to remove them yourself, take them to the vet because if you're inexperienced you could make your dog sick.
    General doggy first aide tips, not exclusive for hiking.

    That one recall command is unbelievably important. Doesn't even have to be a recall. A friend of mine felt in her dog's case, down was the most important. She pounded that one in until her Irish Setter would drop before she even finished the word. And then it happened. She pulled into her mother's driveway and the dog jumped out of the car before she could grab the leash. A tractor trailer was coming, and a squirrel was leaving. The dog went after the squirrel. It was a split second decision… yell her name or down her dog. She screamed Down!… and the dog's chest was in the gravel as the truck went by. Another 2 feet and that would have been that. One word. Doesn't matter if it's come, down or stay. Whatever… Drill it into yourself and your dog until it comes out of you and your dog responds naturally.

    Some parks (local, national and state) specify that dogs should be on a leash no longer than 6 feet and discourage retractable leashes. I myself don't use them for this reason among others. I own a beagle and it's not uncommon for him to forget himself and try to chase the wildlife. A retractable leash would only give him room to build up momentum and either pull me down or jerk my arm off.
