I know that ducks come right in as long as my dog is sitting still, even when he's right out in the open. Of course our ducks are not that wary yet up here in NW Montana, haven't been shot at much.

    Nice work John. We use steps off the bow of our john boat, but still need to give them leverage now and then with pressure behind the head/neck area. I'll try to get some shots of the framework, but it's all decked out right now.

    I have a couple of those vests but got tired of lifting wet dogs. Bought a dog ramp that hangs off the side and the dogs use that

    I use a vest no handles. I like the extra buoyancy and protection from brush. In my War Eagle. I use the Avery Double Duty stand. It folds flat and it hangs over the side easy.

    Yesterday for our Northwest Opener we hunted off the shore, my buddy hunted his lab from a dog blind and Riley sat next to me in the brush. I made a blind with a hole in the middle where he could go in and out.
