Enhancing Bird Training with the Pigeon Holder/Launcher: A Must-Have Tool at Best Gun Dogs

At Best Gun Dogs, we prioritize comprehensive bird training for our puppies, laying the foundation for their future success in the field. One invaluable tool in our arsenal is the Pigeon Holder/Launcher, designed to facilitate effective bird introduction and training.

The Pigeon Holder/Launcher is a simple yet highly effective device consisting of a square grated metal box with a 12-foot cord attached to the top. Its functionality allows for controlled release of the bird once the dog has gone on point, enabling the scent to be dispersed without startling the puppy with loud noises.

Here's why we swear by the Pigeon Holder/Launcher:

  1. Gentle Introduction: Unlike catapult-type launchers that produce loud noises, our Pigeon Holder/Launcher ensures a gentle release of the bird, preventing the puppy from getting scared. This gentle approach fosters a positive association with bird work, promoting confidence and enthusiasm in young dogs.

  2. Enhanced Focus and Intensity: The controlled release of the bird allows it to momentarily stand before taking flight. This captivates the puppy's attention, boosting their style and intensity as they hone their bird handling skills.

  3. Cost-Effective and User-Friendly: The Pigeon Holder/Launcher is inexpensive to build and easy to use, making it accessible to trainers of all levels. Its simplicity belies its effectiveness, providing a seamless experience for both trainer and puppy.

By incorporating the Pigeon Holder/Launcher into our training sessions, we ensure that our puppies receive a thorough and positive introduction to bird work. Join us at Best Gun Dogs as we continue to utilize innovative tools and methods to cultivate the next generation of skilled hunting companions.
