With all the methods and ways to Bug Out , no mention yet as to pets.

If I go anywhere , Im taking my dog with me, this guy a Border Collie/Lab

mix is loyal like no other. He would offer a form of protection as well as a

campanion at times of lonelyness . Theres no way I could leave him behind

fend for himself.

What are thoughts on bringing your pets ?

They can keep my two ferrets and two cats company. Not much room in my BOV for them and it would be a pain to have to look after them.

As for us if it hits the fan and we need to bug out all of our family is bugging out . The furry four legged ones as well .

The historical record shows humans and dog/cats cohabitation has been around since the beginning . Some archeologists have theorized the domestication of dogs was first them picking up our leftovers then to cooperation during the hunt .

Depending on the breed their sense of smell their hearing and eye sight is many times greater than humans . They can alert us to where game is and when danger is near . They could protect us or simply provide us with much needed companionship if we need to flee the society and live hidden . Still today the best way to find a human or animal is to have a blood hound track it . even with all of our high tech .

I cant count the times when the dogs knew something was afoot and my human senses didn't pick it up . Heck even the felines could be of use mine are ALWAYS bringing home mice lizards rabbits bird quail or some small animal and eating part and leaving the rest by my chair If your hungry enough that cat gift could be worth its weight in gold !

We crawled out of the caves together if we need to crawl back into them we should take our furry family members with us .

My wife has already said her chihauhau is going

Not much protection tere just a nervouse ratdog barking at the wind. But she loves it and it does chase squirrels out of the yard.
I was just kinda of embarrased to say a chihauhau is gonna be in my BOB.

Actually a small dog like that makes a good early warning system. My daughter has a chihuahua/rat terrier mix that thinks he's a rottweiller. He lets me know when people or animals are near my house and he don't eat much.

The real trouble for some of us to bug out would mean leaving a behind a working small scale farm . We are having trouble finding a bug out bag big enough for chickens dogs cats ducks geese goats and turkeys ect .

Hunkering down for me is the first course of action . It would have to get pretty nasty to force us out of our rural area.

My dog goes with me, he even has a "modified saddle bag" harness so he can carry his share of the load should we be on foot anywhere.

Of course he is a 90 LB mutt, so he can carry much more than a little dog


And as someone mentioned before, should things ever get REALLY BAD, he is fresh meat

though it would break my heart to have to resort to that

damn straight my dogs are coming with me!! Not only are they my boys, but they could prove to be useful in both protection and hunting. (and keeping warm at nights with shnuggles)

Fatten the snake up on the mice. Eat the snake. Feed the fish to the moggy and take the cat as pest control.


Seriously, no pets since I was 17. Dogs are phenomenal companions, if trained.

Animals SHOULD be trained. Pets are food unless trained to be useful. Dogs are pack animals. They respect dominance and will follow the leader. Dogs can be used for hunting, herding, guarding, alarms, pest control, light/medium chores. messengers. All the right animal requires is training.

Yes, most dogs are now specialised but pay your money and take your choice. As much as I detest Jack Russells they are excellent ratters. A lurcher is just awesome for lamping. Collies are good for herd control... you get the idea.

Dogs ARE a man's best friend.

Oh, geese... excellent security.

Only bring animals that can fend for themselves. Meaning dogs and cats for most of us. Cats can usually feed themselves, provided you put them in an environment where they can hunt, and will usually come back to your shelter once they get the lay of the land.

Dogs, however, are the most useful companion you can bring. They make great sentries, hunting companions, morale boosters, and can eat just about anything you feed them without too much trouble. Of course, there are some breeds of cat and dog that have been inbred into special retardation ( Dalmatians, for example. ), which probably aren't good for bringing along.

If you feel you must leave your pets, execute them yourself and give them a proper burial. This is a grim prospect, but consider the very likely chance that they will starve, catch a disease, die of parasites, or other much less pleasant ways to die.

We could not take our WereTerrier with us he would hump everything any anything it came across. Chases rats, pigeon, rabbit, hares, foxes, badgers you name it, Kill em,?? No way he just tries to hump everything he catches. He must be a relative of that typical American terrier off the movie the Eiger Sanction, Faggot it was called IIRC.

Its always a good idea to take along some cats, they make good barrel cleaning pull throughs, toilet brushes etc and are ideal for moving target practise
