Looks like there are two decoys in this house :)

I'm so proud of my fiance Kiersten. She has expressed some interest in catching dogs, and has worked a few here and there to get a feel for it. She doesn't seem to want to be a full time decoy but still wants to learn that side of things. She has mostly worked her own dog in blinds and things of that nature or just fed a few bites. Well, tonight she really stepped up and did awesome! I needed a decoy to help me train my call off. She needed her dog worked as well so we just loaded them up and went to the park. Kiersten was catching like a pro! My call off's were going great so I was mixing long bites in with the call off's and she was catching, driving and fighting the dog like a champ! It was such a successful training session for our dogs. I couldn't have done it without her.

Thanks! I think she might be addicted. I haven't seen her smile like that in a long time. It was funny, I told her to stand still so I could out my dog and she said not yet I'm still fighting haha. She drove the dog a few more steps, gave a couple stick hits then said okay now you can out her haha. It was awesome!

That's awesome, I think it takes a lot of guts to be a decoy. Are there many women decoys out there?

Not too many that I know of. The number does seem to be increasing though.
