Perch training

What do you all use for the perch? I was thinking a phone book but I can't find one. I'd like something about that size, different texture (than carpet), and slightly elevated.

Re: Perch training

I have a farm black rubber like feeding bowl turned over. It is flat on the top. They come in different sizes.

Re: Perch training

I tried a phone book and the cover slid around, so that was a no-go. I worked on it a little once so far, and used a large hardcover book. I'd like to find something better though. Samba, do you have a link to what you're talking about?

Re: Perch training

On a quick search, I found this picture. Our farm stores have different sizes so you can get one appropriate for your dog.

check any "feed" store, southern states, tractor supply, any horse supply stores?? we use these all the time at the barn from feeding to soaking feet, be careful they are meant to be a bit flimsy

Re: Perch training

How about my small folding step stool? Mine is shorter than this 9" one. Found it at regular box store.

Re: Perch training

Yeah, I did a search and found those at Home Depot and Amazon - do you think it would work? Round would be better, but that looks to be a good size, and not too tall. Plus - cheap!
