    Dead Fowl Trainer Internal Scent System (available separately):

    To internally scent your Dead Fowl Trainer: Inject the training scent into the middle of the foam duck body in six different locations using the Dokken's Dead Fowl Scent Injector or a syringe (not provided). The foam body is designed to hold the training scent whether using the dummy in or out of the water. 1/2 to 3/4 ounce of training scent is sufficient.

    How to Deodorize Your Dokken Deadfowl Trainer:

    Mix 1 qt. 3% hydrogen peroxide, 1/4 cup baking soda, a squirt dish soap, and enough warm water to cover your dummy (up to a 1/2 gallon if needed). Soak dummy overnight and rinse off the next day. Set out in the sun to dry.

  • Dokken Deadfowl Mallard

    Tom Dokken's Dead Fowl Trainer may be one of the best tools ever designed for training retrievers. Once my pups get old enough to carry them, I switch over to them for the majority of their work.

    While you can't substitute using real ducks, the Dokken Ducks allow you to train with the natural weight and feel of a dead bird all the time. It can make a huge difference in your dog's attitude over time. My labs absolutely love them!

    Transcript from Steve's Video:

    This is a Dokken dead fowl mallard. This is one of my favorite products that we sell. Designed by Tom Dokken, this is the closest you can get to a real duck for your dog to retrieve. Dead fowl trainers are made of a foam that has the weight and the feel of a dead duck. It is designed for your dog to have the correct hold on a bird.

    The dead fowl trainer has a hard head, has a foam body, has hard feet, and then the throw rope is included and it actually passes through the body. It's the same rope that attaches the head, so real secure.

    The design with this, because of the foam, you can actually inject scent straight into the body. It's just designed to teach that dog to go for the middle of the bird. You will find, too, that if you have a dog that shakes, if he shakes the head is designed to actually give him a small correction. So it will stop dogs from shaking birds. Just a really neat device.

    This is a great tool. It's a great way for your dog to get used to picking up birds. We start dogs on them as young as four or five months with the smaller teal, then we move them up to the mallard. Just a really great product. My dogs absolutely love them.

    We occasionally run across a dog that once you move over to dead fowl trainers, they don't like to go back to dummies. They only want to pick up these and they want to pick up birds.

    Favorite Pool Toy
    June 10, 2023
    I buy two ducks a year, one for each dog. One for the Lab and one for the Springer Spaniel. This is their favorite pool toy and they do not put them down. They get used about 5 days a week and year around.
    • I like that I can get different sizes for the different dogs. They hold up well.

    Great realistic trainer
    April 21, 2023
    My dog loves this...she likes to carry it around after retrieving it.

    I can't say how much the addition of scent helped, but she does seem to find it readily in dense cover.

    She has a tendency to hold cylindrical dummies by the flap on the end where the rope attaches, but she holds this dummy on the main part of the body...the design including the hard head and feet promote that.

    • Promotes good holding
    • My dog really likes it
    • Could be slightly larger

    Very realistic and a lot easier than remembering to take out and thaw ducks!
    • Always in the back of the truck, realistic and the dogs love them.
    • Too easy to forget to use real ducks occasionally!

    I’ve had a whole set over time and I love them but so do the hounds once there force fetcheing is done the injoying tearing them. An I’m ok with that cause they get the job done
    • When I bought my first dokkens you could buy certian sent oils fou the dummies
    • It would be nice if they could put some kind of water sensitive oil sent in the dummy. so far I clip duck wings zip tie to dokken .

    Great product...we use extensively when training marking skills. Consistent throws out of our Zinger Winger launchers or for that matter when hand thrown. Just really nice change up when your dog needs a little change up or extra excitement to push through tough sessions. Naturally improves dogs mouth habits when retrieving so that is great bonus. Dogs just love them!!!
    • improved mouth postitioning, helps build confidence in handling birds and ultimaletly nice to change up different items to keep dogs interest high. Work wonderfully in Zinger Winger launchers for training marks. Unbeatable for training water marks, consistent throws and splash that really is huge asset especially with young dogs. Dogs really prefer the Doken's to the harder shelled competetors.
    • Over time and use they do sometimes absorb water when using on water marks. Simple enough remedy to squeeze out the excess and then set in sun to dry them out but they do absorb water so people should be aware of that.

    Dokken is the gold standard for trainers
    April 20, 2023
    I am very pleased with my Dokken training ducks. Initially purchased the smaller size for my very young pup. She has grown quickly and is now 4.5 months old and ready for a full size bird. She was a bit puzzled on the first retrieve as the dummy had grown, but quickly figured out the right placement in her mouth and she was so pleased bringing it back!
    • High quality, well made.
    • Can't think of any at this time.

    Excellent life size looking piece! The detail is excellent. Only suggestion is to add a throwing “knob” at the end of the duck’s rope to more easily thrown.

    While we haven’t used these in water yet (ponds and small lakes are frozen over), we are using this duck in the house for the older dogs to get used to the weight and balance of it. So far the dogs love it and will retrieve it.

    • More realistic than bumpers. Prefer over Avery because they are easier for the dog to hold.

    Absolutely legit in every way

    Extremely realistic in every detail from the weight and size, to the way it sits in the water, all the way down to the waterfowl band on the foot. Couldn't be happier. Seems very sturdy and should last a long time.

    Good training duck
    August 24, 2021
    I got this to train my GSP as a versatile dog. She retrieves toys but she was not sure about this trainer tool at first. After swinging it around to get her excited about it and playing around with it she is retrieving it properly.
    The duck is a realistic size and shape, and is very durable. I can swing it as hard as I can throw and it just bounces off the ground and does not show more sign of wear than grass smudges.
    Now she is has little interest in her old toys and just wants this one. I added the duck scent stick to spice it up too.

    July 13, 2021
    I have a 3 year old black lab. She was never trained to hunt, but she LOVES to retrieve this decoy. We take it to the lake and beach and throw it for hours. It’s high quality and works great.
    By Frank S.
    Dokken, like training with real ducks

    My 3 month lab likes her duck. It took a couple of days to figure how to carry it. Now once she learns to swim it will be a great help.
    • Well made and looks like it last a long time.

    Great product. Its heavy enough to make it difficult for the dog to carry(similar to a teal duck or goose) but not too heavy. The dogs love fetching it
