The Retriev-R-Trainer dummy launcher is the original workhorse of professional and amateur retriever trainers, just like its name says. This launcher throws dummies 2-3 times farther than by hand, great for fetching, steady to shot and marking drills. Metal construction with a ribbed and rubberized easy grip handle. .22 caliber launcher blank ammo provides a report that eliminates the need for a blank pistol and gives you three different distances to throw the Cordura canvas dummy: 150 ft., 175 ft. or 200 ft. depending on the strength of the charge selected. The Basic Kit here comes with 1 box of 100 light blanks and a white canvas dummy.
Here’s how it works:
Slide either the white Cordura canvas or a PVC dummy (sold separately) over the top barrel
Unlock the chamber using the thumb latch and break open the action
Load the .22 launcher blank ammo in the chamber the same as you would a .22 single-shot rifle
Close the action and lock with the thumb latch
To fire, grip the handle firmly with one hand and pull the firing knob at the base of the handle out with the other, the dummy will launch and the report will sound upon release of the knob
Please follow all safety instructions from the manufacturer and treat this piece of training equipment as a firearm, wearing eye and ear protection as well as gloves. Additionally, as the launcher provides a gunfire report, please make sure that the dog is properly conditioned to gunfire prior to use.
The Retriev-R-Trainer does have recoil and we strongly recommend the purchase of the shoulder/hip stock to minimize the impact on your gripping hand
SportDOG has just announced the release of two new e-collar systems. These two systems will be the first e-collars to introduce dog biometrics into an e-collar platform. Using SportDOG’s BodyGuard technology, the receiver will take readings on key biometrics of your dog and alert the handler if those metrics get out of a safety zone.

Dehydration in dogs occurs when the loss of water in a dog’s body exceeds the amount of intake. Dehydration is a spectrum that can range in severity from mild to severe. In serious cases of dehydration, dogs can suffer from collapse, organ failure, and even death. Severely dehydrated dogs require immediate emergency care from his or her veterinarian. If you suspect that your dog is severely dehydrated, contact the veterinarian right away.
