The Dead Fowl Retriever Trainer body is made of a soft, natural-feel foam and the free-swinging head and feet are made of hard plastic. This encourages your retriever to make a secure body hold, avoiding the hard, non-palatable head and feet. Dokken Retriever Trainers float in water even if punctured.
For water training, the Dokken Mallard Dead Fowl Trainer is the absolute best for life-like appearance. The Mallard trainers are designed to teach proper retrieving techniques and have a natural game bird feel, dead bird neck, will not sink, and are easy to throw.
