Our Ground Hook/Whoa Post is the perfect tool with working with young dogs, check cords, birds and launchers. Weighing only 26 ounces, it is easy to carry with you when working your dog in the field, and then when you approach a launcher simply push into the ground and clip off the check cord to ensure a non-slip flush. We also find it perfect as an auxiliary stake out for your dog when taking a break. The Trainer's Assistant is made from cold rolled steel for long lasting durability and powder coated in bright orange to eliminate rust and maximize visibility. Comes fitted with a sturdy, solid brass bolt snap.
