. Owns 2 dogs. Family pet. I bought this to teach my lab puppy to retrieve from the water.
We don't hunt, but needed something of quality that I could rely on. I'm tired of 'toy quality' floats that just don't stand up to any real use. This Plastic Dummy did the trick...and Gundog provided the product at a fantastic price!
I could buy three of these from Steve Snell at the price of only one from the outdoor superstore! The white (as I read from Steve) is the best for training the new pups- and are easy to see bobbing in the local lake or bay. I've tried almost all water venues and it works great. Heavy enough to throw some distance and good quality to withstand the dogs repeated bite.
The rope is secure and never detaches which gives it an extra dimension for the dog to catch and pull if he doesn't want to mouth the whole body, or who's mouth is not big enough yet.
The only reason I bought several is the fear of losing them in the water-not of any fault of the float, but if I throw it too far and my pup gives up. This happened to me once in tidal water, but she's since grown up and can hold her own now.
THANKS STEVE SNELL for providing quality products for a reasonable price. The knowledgable staff and friendly service is tops in my book!
