The Mystique® Straight-line 550g Dummy is made as a training tool for learning, training and building confidence while training handling to keep the dog in straight line. Thanks to its partly conical shape, the dummy stands firmly in the field, resists very well during bad weather (wind, rain) and allows the dog to have easier grip.
When the dummy stands it is visible to the dog as well as the handler, that’s why the training is more successful and builds confidence and trust between the dog and handler. By using multiple dummies in a row, you can extend the distance in a short period and building confidence while training handling to keep the dog in a straight line, which is important for participation on Working test or real hunting. For young and unexperienced dogs start with the white-black version, for advanced training follow with green-black and more advanced training use orange-black version. To make training more challenging and exciting for advanced training you can mix the colours of dummies. The orange color strap grip will allow you to wear the dummy comfortably and to get a good visibility even at longer distances. Black bottom base secure that the dummy is more protected against dirty. It can be flavoured with scents for more realistic training. Primarily designed for field training, it can also be used on water thanks to its special filling.
Our dummies are specially designed for the gundog training. Basic requirement for training is a so-called soft mouth, which prevents the game or the dummy damaged by too firm bite, and therefore is unusable. The dummies are not suitable for tugging.
