I have a yellow lab I have taken for the last 3 years to South Dakota and I have a hard time keeping track of her while hunting. she comes when I call. But if we are in milo or tall grass and I can not tell where she is I would call her back she might be on a bird. So I am thinking of putting a bell on. The question is would it affect the birds if I put a bell on her while hunting I have already put it on her and it works great Thanks for you imput
I presume you are using this dog to flush birds. A bell probably will cause birds to run, especially late season and in crops. A gps will tell you where she is. However, teaching her to run a pattern zig zag in front of you would be better. You can do this easily with a check cord.
