Anyone's dog ever have a bad run in with barbed wire? This is something I have never thought about but I probably should have. Dogs work hard for us and they come out somes all torn up. Wondering if this seems like a problem in NJ.

I HAVE OBSERVED DOGS IN AND AROUND BARBED WIRE HUNTING ,NOT MUCH MORE DAMAGE DONE THAN GREEN BRIAR.
LOTS OF BARBED WIRE IN SOUTH JERSEY. I HAVE SEEN DOGS SEVERELY INJURED BY A STICK.

I have a German Shorthair that i hunt the flatbrook with. Now i don't see much barbed wire but plenty of thorns. I have a vest for her. But it doesn't cover her face. So i am always pulling thorns from her face and ears. I guess what i am trying to say is get a vest for your little hunting buddy. It may not stop every thing, but it should minimize the damage.

Take a suggestion from a old K-9 cop... Pick up some EMT gel for those emergencies...It could save your dogs life.

I actually came across some barbed wire at Assunpink a few weeks ago while wood [no swearing please] hunting. It was pretty far back in the woods, and pretty close to the Roosevelt end of the WMA -- just a couple of strands attached to some old fence posts.

I heard that is hard to remove once on and the wound can get infected.
