There is nothing like a good dog. What other creature has followed us up from the stone age and been by our side. They watch our failings and our misery; they are therapists for it all. These great canines who spend their whole lives at our side, dependent on us, teach us more about ourselves. The biggest question for us all comes when we consider the situation of a bugout with our pets. If our lives depend on it and if the world is falling apart will a dog cost us our lives?
This is a great guide about backpacking with dogs. You will find information in this article about properly caring for and handling a dog in the wild. Our dogs are our responsibility and it takes some planning to do it right. Read on and get prepared.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
