Video: A Hunting Camp for Canine Couch Potatoes
By David DiBenedetto
Herewith your Friday dose of good humor, courtesy of The New York Times. This video follows a reporter and his bassett hound through a weekend camp designed to stimulate a house dog’s hunting instinct. (You’ll enjoy the scene of the reporter pouring scent straight from the bottle to form a scent trail.)
We all know a dog doesn’t become a gun dog in a weekend. But, hey, still good to hear non-hunters thinking about the sport—and what their dogs were bred for.
The brilliant people here are the camp owners…talk about an easy way to turn a dollar.
