With shed hunting fanatics preparing to hit the woods any day now, if not already, I wanted to share another great resource for training your dog to shed hunt. As I’ve shared over the past few weeks, I’ve been training my own dog to find antlers and it’s been a lot of fun and incredibly rewarding. That said, if you’re interested in trying this out for yourself, the videos below should definitely be on your “To Watch” list.

Tom Dokken is one of the most well known shed dog trainers in the country, and he’s helped prepare antler dogs for the likes of Lee & Tiffany Lakosky and many others. Below are two videos of a seminar Tom gave last year, explaining how you can train your dog to find antlers. Sit back, grab a cup of coffee and prepare to take notes. You’re about to get a whole boatload of shed dog know-how!
