The Original Woodcock Dummy/Ball, shaped like a small rugby ball, is soft and encourages a neat pick up and hold. A little bigger than a tennis ball it is softer to the feel and bird body shaped. It can be hidden easily in cover or long grass for a Spaniel to hunt up and find. Available in Purple, ‘Easy Mark’ Black & Natural Red and Green.
Make training fun and different by using the woodcock colours to your advantage –
The colour Red is not easy for the dog to see against a natural background. The big advantage is that the handler can spot the red dummy from some distance when teaching memory and blind retrieving.
The Green Woodcock dummy is also difficult for the dog to see against a natural background but will encourage the dog to get its head down and use its nose to hunt the ball.
The ‘Easy Mark’ Black and Natural Woodcock dummy has the advantage that it is easy for the dog to spot when in flight and landing.
The Purple seems to be an easy colour for dogs to see. This can help build confidence when first learning to retrieve!
The Woodcock Dummy will also fit into most plastic ‘tennis ball flingers’. This makes it easy to launch out further when hunting up a Spaniel, walking a Retriever at heel to launch along the ground, or through the air to aid steadiness training and drop to flush.
