There are several posts on this blog describing how to capture dogs with box traps. There are so many ways they can be used. You can set up a box trap and leave it to catch a specific dog, you can set up a trap line of boxtraps, check the trap line and gather dogs. You can also drive the streets, find dogs who will accept hand outs, and when you find one, set up a trap nearby, bait it, and entice them into the trap with food.
To learn all of these ways for box trapping dogs get our new training DVD, “Humanely Box Trapping of Dogs“ for sale on our GWR Products page.
In our YouTube video we used this active method and enticed a dog into the box trap. Even though he had never seen the trap, he was still very cautious. Please send me your comments and questions. Dr. Mark

GWR has just posted our first You Tube video on humane and compassionate dog handling. It is titled: How to Humanely Handle a Street Dog. This video was filmed while I was teaching dog handlers from across India during Project Vet Train in Faridabad, India. Project Vet Train was a pilot program conducted by Vets Beyond Borders and the India Board of Animal Welfare.
I will be posting more You Tube videos over time to introduce basic concepts in humane dog handling. Our goal at GWR is to produce full length training videos, You Tube videos, and webinars so programs around the world can learn to conduct dog handling in a successful, safe, and compassionate manner.

People can get very upset when they hear the word “dominance” used. I will NEVER promote punitive or demeaning actions towards a dog or wolf. Call it leadership with confidence. In this video I call it “compassionate dominance”. Whatever we wish to call it, here is a video demonstrating the use of the Y pole which is much more humane and safe for the wolf than catching them with nets.

I would love your comments!
