This Hot Dog is one bad dog! Fool those educated coyotes. The mouthpiece detaches from the horn to sound like two distinctly different coyotes. This will give you the edge during mating season and battling over territorial boundaries. The Hot Dog is super loud making it a great locator call. It's also versatile enough to create distress calls of birds, cottontails, jackrabbits, pups, fawns and deer. This large howler's mouthpiece alone creates smooth sounding howls. The horn adds rasp and volume to your calling. The Hot Dog is designed specifically to Speak The Language of the coyote.

I've been coyote calling for about a year. I've bought six callers and tried about a dozen. The Primos Hot Dog has more tonal and vocal range than any howler I've tried. The reed is fairly wide and long, giving it quite a bit of variation. This also makes it a little more difficult to master. It took me a couple hours practice to get a good feel for the call, and a couple more hours to feel comfortable enough to take it out on a stand. If you don't have any experience with howlers, I would go with a smaller caller, like the Primos Little Dog, which comes with two reeds--a medium and a small. On the other hand, if you have done some howling, and you're ready to move on and expand your repertoire, the Hot Dog is a great choice. I have two custom, somewhat more expensive callers, and neither one of them can produce a variety of coyote vocalizations as well as the Hot Dog. Ki-yis, whimpers, pup distress, female invitation howls, old male challenge howls, mid-range adolescent interrogation howls, barks, prey distress (cottontail, jackrabbit, crow, woodpecker), fawn bleats, buck snorts, doe bleats..., this caller can do them all. Put in a little practice and the Hog Dog will do everything you need.
I have many Primos callers. So far this is the only one that I have been disappointed by. When the horn is attached this caller has a dead spot when blown. When you remove the horn the callers will tone throughout the whole board. But once you put the horn on you develop a dead spot between spots c and b.
Just like anything else. Practice. I can get the Dogs howling in the neighborhood pretty good. was a little disappointed as to obliviously made of very cheap materials. I question how long it will actually hold up. Time will tell.
There are plenty of open-reed calls that are better than this one. I'll keep it for a spare, or toss it into the glove box of my car so I can use it for a locator call when driving around at night.
Seems like a quality call, solid plastic construction. Haven't had much success yet, but I'm chalking that up to learning how to make the call do what I want at this point.
A1 product. Very happy with purchase and fast service. Thank you
Speak the language, if you get it practice, practice, practice!
Hard to get the right tone. Takes some practice to learn proper method to blow. Neighbors cats freak out while I am practicing.
