Tired of thawing animals for fetch training? This is a great alternative.
The hide is sleeved so you can insert your own bag of weight and gradually increase difficulty. We use some lead shot in a shot bag (or sand) in a cut down garbage bag for weight. Makes a great retrieving bumper, good durability (depending on how you use it) and is all natural.
We like these Nutria because they are tough as nails. The hide is very thick and durable. True they aren't as stylish as a fox but the dogs don't care. They work great for training and last years.
Nutria tend to be on the medium to large size scale. The nutria fur is VERY durable. If you want a smaller alternative look at our woodchuck. If you want larger, get a fox.
Length 23" (head to base of tail)
Width 6" (widest point, opening slightly larger)
