Do you al­ways build a hide for your dog Goose? Do you find it a pain that he is white?

I must ad­mit, I don’t have many is­sues with Goose’s colour. Yes, he is bright and I will of­ten build a hide for him, but this is just good prac­tice. Hides help to con­ceal a dog’s move­ment as well as its colour. Hides also give Goose shel­ter from the weather when he is wet af­ter a wa­ter re­trieve. I will flight ducks and geese with­out the use of a dog hide, us­ing nat­u­ral gut­ters and bank­ings to con­ceal both Goose and my­self. You would be sur­prised at what will come in range when Goose is sat in the open.
