I do not allow firearms even in my truck when hog doggin' unless it is a .22 for snakes only!!!
Some guys guide both shooting over their dogs and pig stickin' hunts.
My dogs are not trained or in the habit of expecting gun fire so they may jump in front of a bullet or leave the county at the report...
On a hunt in the style I use, you can tie it up or stick it after you or I "tip" it...
