The duck is 33cm tall from the beak to tail, and is 11cm wide at the breast with a girth of approximately 31cm, which is the same size as many duck and bird species. It is approximately 190 grams in weight. This dummy is designed to make your dog confident with the weight and feel of a real duck or bird and has raised ridges to mimic feathers and uneven surfaces. It is made with EVA waterproof foam, which is an elasticized closed-cell foam. It is resistant to cracking and UV radiation, which makes it soft, rubbery, and flexible but durable. This duck dummy is perfect for training your young pups or older dogs to retrieve smaller duck / bird species in water and on land.
Whether just a young puppy beginning to learn or a seasoned gundog with a lot of experience, it is an outstanding device for training and maintaining your dog’s retrieves. It is the perfect duck dummy for small to larger Labradors, Retrievers, and other bird dogs.
PLEASE NOTE: this is not a chew toy and should not be left with your dog unsupervised, otherwise constant chewing may ruin this training aid and may encourage undesirable behaviours in your gundog such as developing a hard mouth.
