I have used the Dokens w/ duck scent for years. Haven't used canvas dummies since the Dokens came out. Start puppies w/ the teal Dokens and move up. Drill a couple of holes on each side 1/8" and inject the scent. I would agree w/ another member. I think your dog has had a bad experience with a dummy. Wife, kids, etc.?? Dog didn't do what someone thought it should and they smacked it in the head w/ the dummy ?? Sometimes it doesn't take much. Once one of my dogs enters the formal training stage the wife and kids (back then) are not allowed to use any of my training tools with the dogs. Take them for a walk, play w/ a tennis ball etc., but I am the trainer. They do not try to physically discipline the dog in any way shape or form !!! When you get the time and can use some live birds I think you may solve the problem. If not you may have to teach her to "Force Fetch" or send her to someone to have it done.
