Watch for a cross post when the next blog goes live on Mother Earth News about keeping your pets safe when living with predators remotely. The photo shows a couple of the tools we use to train our dogs so they respond immediately when necessary. We have lived here for 19 winters now and not had a pet injured by any of the predators we have like mountain lions, lynx, bobcat, wolf, coyote or bear. It can happen even though you take diligent precautions but by being aware of your surroundings and the risks you lessen the chance. It also helps to have your pets properly trained and prepared.
Some have not been as fortunate and have lost their pets to deer, predators or birds of prey. I'll cross post the link when the blog goes live within the next couple days.
