    Default Bumper Boy vs Hunan Gunner ... Help or Hurt?

    Certainly all AKC Trials are Human Gunner thrown birds. However can the retriever learn from throws made at differeent angles and heights?
    Can the variation between the two types of training marks improve and add to the retievers Box Of Seen Icons?

    At first read of the thread title I thought that Asia had entered the remote launcher market.

    sometimes you don't have humans to throw when you are training. Then, it is really nice to have a remote launcher. That situation, and throwing marks at different angles, heights, location, scenarios, all add to the experience you give while training your dog and will allow them to be prepared for multiple situations.

    I'd suggest reading up on duck seating.

    You have to send them Airfare from Hunan plus expenses. And it's tough to get work VISAs...

    It's so much cheaper to get wingers with remote electronics.

    Plus, I think he's based on "the original Hunan gunner," Field Trial Chairman Mao...
