Vince is the owner of a seven-year-old miniature poodle that was originally bred to be a show dog but ended up becoming a household pet. With a little research Vince discovered that poodles make excellent bird dogs, particularly when hunting pheasant, quail, and duck. That intrigued him, but before taking his dog on his next hunting trip Vince decided to take her to a local dog park for a little bit of training.

His biggest concern was the fact that his dog tended to be very energetic and hyperactive at times. He could imagine her bolting off at the first sign of a bird and never returning. By taking her to the dog park Vince intended to expose her to all sorts of stimuli in hopes of training her to return to him at his first call. Unfortunately, during the very first session the dog did exactly what Vince was afraid of. It took him several hours to retrieve her that evening.

Thankfully, Vince didn’t give up. Instead, he fastened his Spark Nano to the dog’s collar and installed the app on his smartphone. During the next trip to the dog park the poodle bolted again. But this time Vince knew exactly where she was and retrieved her very quickly. Over the course of the next several weeks he managed to train her to stay at his side unless he gave her the command to go. Finally he felt she was ready for the next duck hunt he was planning.

Spark Nano Goes Everywhere

Despite the fact that his first hunt was highly successful Vince decided never to take the poodle out without the Spark Nano firmly affixed to her collar. Now he has every confidence that he’ll be able to track her down should she ever run away again. And should she become injured or stranded during a hunt Vince will be able to locate her with his smartphone. Never again will he have to worry about going to the dog park or taking his beloved animal on hunting trips.

Interestingly enough, when his hunting buddies found out what Vince was doing, they all bought Spark Nanos for their dogs as well. The main advantage in this application is the fact that device is extremely small as compared to some of its competitors. It doesn’t interfere with the dog’s natural movements and, in most cases, the dog gets used to it very quickly eventually forgetting it’s attached.

Not only that, the Nano is rugged enough to be used on hunting trips. It is water resistant as well as resistant to extremely high temperatures ranging from -40° to 285°F.

If you own a dog that you take out unleashed, you never know what could happen. Why not put your mind at ease and keep tabs on Rover with the Spark Nano 3.0 GPS tracking device? I’m sure he would tell you of his fond appreciation were he able to speak.
