Ok well you are probably gonnna need one more than one garmin but you will need
strike dogs to find your hog (hounds, curs)
bay dogs it bay it up (Most strike dogs do this already) (hounds, curs)
and catch dog(s) i prefer two but thats just me (pits, dogos, bulldogs, some curs, mastiffs etc)
You should have vest and collars for all of them on the strike and bay dogs a light bay vest that will hold up good or just a collar and on a catch dog a collar and catch vest
a first aid kit for both u and ur dogs
pedilite
a good sharp hunting knife
some hobbles
pm for more info

Yeah I was gonna try to buy three pretty good dogs. I have a catch dog and he's catchin real good in a pen. I bought some hobbles. Now I guess I need to get the other stuff. I wasn't real sure if I needed to put vest on the strike dog or not. I was just gonna use it on the catch dogs...

I kno a lot of people that don't run vests on their strike dogs. I believe it depends on the dog. If it's real gritty I would. I got one that is almost a catch dog that I'm bout to start runnin one on. It's your choice but in warmer weather I kno it's real tough on them. But it's all in what u prefer.
Also I usually carry a small backpack. Just makes it easier to keep what u need with u. I carry a staple gun. Wonderdust. Rope. Collars. Water. A light. Extra knife. I try to keep it lite. Just a tip. I'm no pro at this, just tellin ya what I carry

I run a vest on my CD, and the rest of the dogs a cut collar. For the gear that I make sure I have with me or at least in my truck when I go is.
A good cut kit with just about anything you could need.
Two good knife's. One as a spare in the truck.
Flashlight. One in the truck as a spare.
Dog leads.
Water.
Cell phone.
Mule tape.
Camera.
Thats just a few thing. And this is some of the stuff that I make sure I have with me. Other folks may be different.

Just me, but id go out with some guys/gals a few times and see whats involved.  That way you know what your looking at.  I vest one of my strike dogs and just collar the other.  Each dog is different.  however your guaranteed to need a cut kit!  Other than that its all about what you like.  Lots of people use different things.

X3 it is amazing all the things TP can be used for. Besides the obvious you can mark trails, clean stuff, and it makes starting a fire easier. I try to keep a roll in my truck all the time but my kids find it and find more fun things to use it for.

I put vests on all my dogs when I started. I was so glad too when I saw them get hit. Then once I decided to run one without a vest because it was hot. When the hog charged I knew I had just lost a dog. But amazingly the dog did some twisting jump, stopped the hog and kept baying. When I could not find a scratch on her I realized she could avoid getting hit without the vest. Plus the vest would rub the legs. Yes they help prevent cuts but if they get hit hard they can die too. So it is all about each dog.

Paint your gear with fluorescent paint. You will lose much less if you can see it. Hog dogging does not require camouflage but when you have things going crazy or you are tired you may leave stuff. Plus when you have to back track it is much easier to find what you dropped. Put painters tape over areas that you don't want to paint. Even a small amount of fluorescent paint makes a big difference when you are looking for your Garmin in the grass or where your knife fell. I paint any black knife handle. You get the idea.

Along with all the other mentioned

Enough properties (acreage) to hunt with permission where there are hogs and enough acreage that you won't be crossing property lines, good relationship with the neighboring land owners of the properties you will be hunting, good relationship with your neighbors where you will be keeping dogs.

A vetrinarian that is hog dog friendly.

A knowledge of laws in your area about how you can keep your dogs (kennel size requirements, kennel licences ect, # of dogs you can keep on our land). Adequate shelter & alot of shade, and a good quality feed, knowledge of monthly maintenance of routine deworming for intestinal and heartworms.

Enough time to maintain your dogs, health, kennel cleaning, and keep them in condition/excersise when not able to hunt them.

knowledge and supplies to sew, staple, and treat wounds, cuts and abrasions

This is the best response you have gotten so far.  And in my opinion you need these things before you start to think about dogs and gear.  Those allong with a few years tagging allong to learn the ropes will help you get started more than dog and gear  Just my 2 cents.
