Mid River Guide Service, Waterfowl Hunting and Charter Fishing on Maryland's Famous Chesapeake Bay and the Historic Potomac River

What to Bring on Your Hunting Trip

We welcome you to bring your trained retriever on your hunt, provided we know in advance that the dog will accompany you.  For the safety of all hunters and the safety of your dog, all dogs must be steady to shot and be controlled 100% of the time.  Also please remember we will be hunting from a boat, some dogs have not experienced this and makes a lot of dogs very uncomfortable  the first time. Unmanageable dogs will be immediately kenneled for the remainder of the hunt. Please understand this policy. If you would like to expose your dog to a trip like this, we can accommodate. The guide needs to know upfront so he can make necessary adjustments. This kind of trip is typically the handler and the dog alone with the guide.
