Hunting Zombies With Dogs


Zombie hunting dogs are certainly the best possible ally of the zombie hunter, as they sniff and scavenge for prey entangled in the deepest and darkest brush of the forest or zombie warrens in the city of the dead. There are many different possibilities for zombie hunting dog types that you can take on your next patrol. The type of dog you should take on your zombie eradication sweep should be directly related to the type of zombie you are planning on exterminating. If you are planning on hunting former military turned zombie, for example, you would be more satisfied with a hound than you would be with a terrier. Regardless of what dog you choose to take with you on your next hunting trip, you can be sure that you will have made a new friend by the end of the journey.

The most common main category of hunting dogs is the hound. Hounds are actually divided into two categories from there: the sight hound and the scent hound. As their names imply, each sub-category of dog type refers to a certain skill that the dog tends to be more proficient in. Sight hounds, like the Whippet, are adapted to hunting because of their visual acumen. They practice a method that is known as coursing, referring to the notion of spotting the prey from a long distance and following it in a quick pursuit. Scent hounds, work by scent rather than sight. They tend to pick up on a trace of the dead from the ground and follow that scent, hopefully to the zack. Scent hounds often work in packs and are regarded as having some of the most sensitive noses of all other dog types.

The next classification of dogs used for hunting is the gun dog. These dogs are used mostly by short range hunters using shotguns. There are three sub-categories of gun dogs: flushing spaniels, pointing breeds and retrievers. Again, their names are reflective of the particular skill that the dog has to offer the hunter. The retrievers, once known as water spaniels, are great for finding and getting shot or killed game for the provision hunter, zombies not so much. If the hunter kills a duck, the retriever heads over to pick it up and brings it back to the hunter. The pointing breed, such as an English setter, tend to “point out” the prey by pointing at zombies or provision animals being hunted. The pointing breed of dogs sometimes also help flush the prey out from their lurking spot. The flushing spaniels, are used to locate and lure the prey for the hunter. They are trained to remain close to the hunter, ensuring an easy shot.

Still another popular type of zombie hunting dog is the terrier. Terriers were used to hunt mammals now they find zombies, for the most part. A large number of terriers are used to hunt what are known as “zombie pest species”. These animals, such as the Lakeland terrier, are used to locate the actual den of the zombie and lure or herd the creatures. A large number of terriers are used to hunt what are known as “pest species”.

There are many particulars that make using a well trained zombie hunting dogs a popular option for zombie hunting. Whether you choose a sight hound or a scent hound, you can be assured that your companion hound will be working for you at finding your prey not attracting it to you. Using a untrained gun dog can not only provide great loss of companionship if bitten, but it can bring prey right to your doorstep, literally taking the hunt directly to you.
