Deer Food Plots: What You Need to Know

Deer Food Plot Basics Food plots are normally divided into two categories: kill plots and feeding plots. We’re here to help you decide what options are best for you and your land.

Why I chose SportDog when training my dog

Why I chose SportDog My Dog Eight years ago, I brought home an 8-week-old rambunctious Alaskan Malamute mix. He stole my heart instantly, but as he rapidly grew, I realized that my adorable puppy was turning into both a strong, and headstrong dog. By six months he weighed over 60 lb and had an incredible amount of energy. Jericho is intelligent, crafty, and strong. He learned how to slip collars by the time he was three months old and regularly during a walk would simply take off in a different direction, leaving his collar empty at my side. I needed to build a stronger recall with my dog when he slipped the leash. By the time he was six months he was beginning to learn that he was stronger than me. If he simply stopped [...]
