    Safe or not, I run Golden's and we hunt fowl in water, not in fields....bring one of my guys into the coffin blind repeatedly and I will be laying in water very quickly, that will then turn to ice...i have a water proof layout, but it is to keep water out...so this sounds a bit odd to me....

    Yeah.
    My mind is made up.
    I know my dog, and the huge corn fields are dry or frozen.
    For those of you that have tried it, and it didn't work, well, it didn't work for you.
    Others said it works for them.
    Ill find out.
    Going behind the seat didn't take long to teach.
    He's all happy doing it. Plus he gets to get a head scratch and be with dad.

    It's big and heavy.
    Pretty much is a, we'll say a pyramid shape with the top cut off solid frame. It will collapse down and the feet bag part folds over.
    Im going to do away with the pins and bolt it solid. I can drive out into the fields, so Im going to use it to carry decoy inside, unload them, then pull the blind out, set everything up and drive out.
    Walk back in/out, pull up my blind, and put some of the decoy inside.
    It's that big!
    64 1/4 by 64 1/4 solid frame, 17" high down to 12".

I hosted Chris Atkinson and his dog Bus this January on a mallard hunti and we had to set up on a sandbar with layouts. I can't tell you how impressed I was with Bus and how that dog didn't move with ducks landing and falling right in front of him. Very impressive and very safe.
