Products that will improve your retriever's performance this season

Portable Feeding Station
Traveling sportsmen will appreciate the Store-N-Feed To Go unit. A combination cooler and raised feeding station, it organizes food and water and keeps these essentials handy for your retriever. Food and water are stored under the cooler lid, which features recessed areas to hold the dog's bowls. The unit comes with a carrying bag that has an outside pocket for accessories or treats. www.ourpets.com

Travelite Truck Ramp
Lifting your dog in or out of your truck bed can be a chore. Made of aircraft-grade aluminum, Travelite dog ramps are strong yet lightweight. In addition to saving your back, they are a healthy alternative for dogs that have to leap out of truck beds. Such activity can cause injuries to hips, joints, and spine. This ramp folds in half for easy storage. www.travelitedogramp.com

SportDOG Expands E-Collar Line
SportDOG now offers its WetlandHunter e-collar in three sizes and ranges. Encouraged by the success of its SD-2000, the company this year added the SD-400 Camo and SD-800 Camo designs. The ultra-compact 400 features a 2.7-ounce receiver and 3.2-ounce transmitter with a range of 400 yards. The 800 has a slightly larger transmitter with a range of up to one-half mile. Both models come in Advantage MAX-4 HD and have a tone button, low battery detection, and two-dog capability. www.sportdogbrand.com

Coyote Ultimate Lanyard

Bumper Boy Remote Launcher
The Sportsman remote launcher by Bumper Boy is extremely helpful if you don't have assistants during training sessions. This two-position launcher comes with transmitter/receiver, two bumpers, 100 shells, and a battery charger. The Sportsman, which weighs only 6 pounds, is capable of shooting a bidirectional double, as well as standard retrieving challenges. www.bumperboy.com
