This product was exactly as advertised. I do not have any information to provide on the quality of this item yet. I ordered this as a training aide, but my pup just turned 8 weeks old, so he is not quite ready to use it yet. I know from past experience Dokken's training items stand up to the use, so I am confident this one will too. I live in CA and was impressed with how fast my order was processed. It was delivered within 3 days. I will definitely be buying from Steve and Rob in the future.

I'm just getting started with training for hunt tests, and don't know if we'll actually ever compete, but this dokken is the perfect size for my Toller, and she loves to work with it! Thanks also to Paul of GDS who gave great advice!

Great training dummy, just as all the of the Dokken Trainers are. For the price (not specific to GDS), it'd be nice if it came with the Power Throw Grip instead of having to spend and extra few dollars for it. (GDS does have the best price on the Power Throw Grip I've seen.)

Greenwing "Puppy" Teal -- Dokken's Dead Fowl Trainers
A good size to use with Retriever puppies and smaller breed dogs.
While not a precise replica in size and weight, Teal Dead Fowl Trainers are a good size to use with
Retriever puppies and smaller breed dogs to teach proper retrieving techniques.
The hard head and legs will encourage puppies to hold the Dead Fowl Trainer in the
middle creating a proper hold. The free swinging head will correct any aggressive shaking with
a light correction to the snout.
These Teal have a natural game bird feel, a dead bird neck, will not sink, and are easy to throw and have an
internal scent system.
Size is approximately 3 1/2" in diameter (10" girth) and 12" long from tip of the bill to tip of the tail.
Weighs approximately 8 ounces. Made in the USA.
To internally scent your Dead Fowl Trainer: Inject the training scent into the middle of the foam duck body in six different locations using the Dokken's Dead Fowl Scent Injector or a syringe (not provided). The foam body is designed to hold the training scent whether using the dummy in or out of the water. 1/2 to 3/4 ounce of training scent is sufficient.
How to Deodorize Your Dokken Deadfowl Trainer:
Mix 1 qt. 3% hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 cup baking soda, a squirt dish soap, and enough warm water to cover your dummy (up to a 1/2 gallon if needed). Soak dummy overnight and rinse off the next day. Set out in the sun to dry.
Country of Origin: Made in USA.
