Dokken is an industry leader in Dead Fowl Trainers. This teal is perfect for puppies. 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.
Dead Fowl Trainer Internal Scent System is available separately:
To internally scent your Dead Fowl Trainer: Inject the training scent into the middle of the foam duck body in six different locations using 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.
