The Dokken Dead Fowl Mallard retriever training dummy was designed by world-renowned trainer Tom Dokken to replicate the real weight and feel of the mallard duck. The properly sized, shaped, and colored body is constructed with dense urethane foam that deters the dog from mouthing the dummy, yet provides them with a firm and correct hold. The swinging hard plastic green drake head reminds them to not thrash or shake the duck in their mouth while retrieving. For use on water or land, this dummy is fully buoyant and will float even when punctured or torn. The knotted rope at the rear of the dummy is firmly embedded into the body for easy and reliable throwing.
The urethane foam body is capable of being injected with scent for the most realistic training scenario possible using our Scent Injector and our custom Formulated Training Scent.
When starting a pup with Dokken Dead Fowl Trainers, we recommend the smaller and more visible models. The Dove is the absolute smallest and the most visible of all the dead fowl trainers, constructed with the same buoyant foam and a hard head. The slightly larger Green-Winged Teal is another option if you must have the waterfowl realism.
If you are training a versatile or upland dog, you would also want to add the Dokken Dead Fowl Pheasant trainer to your collection.
For maximum size and weight, try the Dokken Dead Fowl Canadian Goose.
