Tip for the Trail…
Bitches in Season
by Ben Hodges
If you have a bitch in season, particularly a leader, what you must
do when out in the field is to picket her directly outside the tent entrance.
This is to prevent any amorous escapee males from reaching her before you
can intervene to prevent an unwanted breeding.
When your bitch leader is in heat, put some more weight in the sled
[to help slow down the team dogs in hot pursuit]. But if she stops to pee,
be prepared for trouble!
