Western Boondocking DOGS...

For Greenhorns in the USA West. Take note. Or anywhere else.

Coyotes are considered varmints by Sheepherders, Ranchers and Varmint hunters. Even Game and Fish are dispatched to take care of predators in Ranch Country that are a problem.

In "Boondocking for Greenhorns" there will be more dogs than people in attendance. It is wonderful when dogs can adjust to a pack among fellow campers and just mind their own business.

I asked that by tying a colorful scarf or handkerchief around your Dog's neck, it is a smart thing to do. Your dog will get use to it, if not immediately. NO Coyote wears a colorful scarf. It is inexpensive protection for your dog. I do it every time we go on a hike while Boondocking. It is just smart. You take prevention methods for fleas and ticks... but might not think of 22 magnum hollow nose bullets, or high power 222's...

If you believe that a colorful scarf or a bright orange vest is not appropriate... then you wear it. Greenhorn hunters can also be YOUR problem, as well.

Be smart. Stay safe. Just a bit of adjusting your City thinking to Country common sense will go a long way.

Dogs running loose in ranch country that are chasing any live stock ( horses, cattle sheep) will be shot Period.
Dogs chasing wildlife ( deer, elk etc ) will be shot or owner will be cited by game and fish.
Is this hard, yes but a fact of life here.
Dogs that roam here are exposed to coyotes and wolves. all so a number of rabies, ticks etc that are not a problem in a controlled location..

My dogs are no problem on the ranch, but I can't take them to a dog park or RV park they don't mix well.

Not to mention that coyotes take domestic dogs on a regular basis. I keep mine on a leash anywhere I suspect coyotes are common (which is getting to be anywhere).
