Still trying to figure how a dog behind you is an unsafe situation. An untrained dog in its own blind that breaks when birds come in is an unsafe situation too. As I said, you're already convinced its bad without seeing it. I don't hunt with my dog in the blind, I prefer he has his own. But after watching him and his pup, there are no issues, period.

Now to all the geniuses of the dog forum, I did what most don't like, I answered a question asked by the OP. I gave my experiences, and what I've seen. I never said it was theright or wrong way. Only my first hand experience. Yet people around here can't help but bitching and arguing.

Your making assumptions. I have seen it, and it was stupid. Even with a well trained mutt. Laying on an animal or having an animal lay on you with a fire arm is dumb.

Use some logic dude. I'm not saying it won't work, I'm saying why would you risk it...

There is always that possibility that a dog sitting behind you in the same blind could prematurely break and by doing so come into contact with you just at the time you are squeezing the trigger, directing the shot who knows where. If the dog is in his own blind there is far less chance of him coming into contact with you at that critical time. Seems obvious enough to me.

No assumptions here dude. I gave my experiences from what I've seen, and it was not stupid, for them it seems to work great. If you read my post you would see that I did not say whether it was right or wrong, I simply answered a question. An unsteady dog anywhere can be a danger for others and itself. I prefer my dog in his own blind, always behind or remote placed, never on top of or next to in a blind.

When its really cold I bet Karma generates heat in that blind. Guys I have seen it work just fine. He will lay still and not move. When there are retrieves he gets out of the blind and sends his dog. I understand your concerns but they seem to have to worked out.

Again I am not saying it cannot be done....

Either way, that seems extremely inefficient.

I had a friend lose three teeth and knocked unconscious by his dog when he raised to fire. The dog had been trained as a pup to stay in the blind and this was their 3rd season. Anyway, I don't do it and don't recommend you do so either.

Its just a matter of time....

Guys that ride bulls will get hurt at some point..
Guys that ride motorcylces will wreck at some point..
Guys that race cars will crash at some point..

Get it! Said it before if i got to a field or was running clients and one of them put their dog in the blind with them the dog would either be going in a dog blind, the truck, or the clients would be getting their money back and going home!

Well since I am usually running the field that my dog is laying in the layout blind with me it would be you packing your stuff and leaving. I'll take my dog in my layout blind over most of you so called experts any day.

Can your dog still hear? Curious how being right under the muzzle effects his hearing.

I think from the video, the dog is well behind the muzzle, so they shouldn't catch the blast much at all.
If the dog sits up behind the shooter, it shouldn't have any trouble marking.
I would also venture to guess, that if the dog would break, it's going out over the side, not bowling you over. Ie, path of least resistance.
A slip lead tied to the frame , and shortened up, would stop any dangers .
I'm gonna try the behind the seat method . already have him taught to jump in and lay behind the seat.
Glad I hunt alone most times.

If you're in doubt of whether Pup will remain steady while you're shooting, it would be very unwise to tie it you your blind. Pup breaks, blind jerks, you shoot where - or who...
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

This is how dog lays in the blind. Takes a smaller sized dog and a bigger blind, woyld never work with Taz and my blind, and I don't intend to try. His dog has no prob marking birds, never seen her budge while shooting, she has always stayed laying down. Know your dog before doing so.
