For working gundog equipment, forget Amazon, go with the specialist working gundog people such as:-

Dog Dummies
Training Dummies Archives - Working Dog Company

I've brought items from all of these companies over the years. I like a variety of different dummies, light ones, heavy ones, fat ones and thin ones, because it helps my dogs get use to holding whatever they find from a little Snipe up to a Canada Goose. But the standard dummy is a 1 pound dummy. I find one with a throwing cord easier to get distance than the ones with a toggle. (And if I'm training in a wood, less likely to end up stuck up a tree!)

ps. Helen at Hilost used to be a Labrador Forums member, but don't let that sway you. :)
