Drake the DU Dog in the Finisher® Dog Blind

Drake the DU dog, made himself at home inside an Avery Finisher® Dog Blind while snow goose hunting with the DUTV crew in March 2009.

Finisher® Dog Blind

The Avery Finisher® Dog Blind (FDB) sets up to 28" wide x 40" deep x 24" tall for even the largest dogs and collapses to an incredible 15" x 4" x 4". The top section is constructed from double-PU-coated 600D polyester, and the floor is constructed of super-strong 900D polyester with double PU coating.

See-through mesh doors allow your dog to see out, but wary birds cannot see in. Use the Avery CamoStraps to brush the FDB for maximum concealment. Steel anchors at each corner keep the blind rigid and secure in any wind. Zippered carrying case is included. Weight 5 lbs. Available in Mossy Oak® Shadow Grass®.
