Do you guys using these have a dog?  Where do they hide?
I have a mut but kind of a camo foldable igloo for the dog.

Dog get's his own hut.  I wouldn't recommend trying to put a dog in the blind with you.  It will end with you getting pissed unless you have an extremely well trained dog.  You also don't want to be shooting over it's head all morning.
Cut em!
It's not the shells!  It's the shooter!

Check our Roger's Sporting Goods.  I purchased a few of the goose buster blinds.  They have worked well for myself and the boys.  Still like my FA Pro-Guide Eliminators the best, but they are a lot of work to carry out.

I currently have a Rogers Goosebuster that I like.  I have also owned Final Approach and Avery Finisher blinds, which were good also.

We hunt shoreline along a river that drops 11' from summer pool level.  A layout for both humans and the dog is critical.  The dog stays in a Mutt Hut type of dog enclosure and only breaks when it sees birds falling from the sky.  The dog blind is usually placed up by the weed line maybe 60-80 yards behind us.  The birds do not focus on the dog.  After retrieves are made the dog kennels back into her blind.

We have snow covers for our layout blinds and dog blind.  When the snow falls and you have a cover on you really disappear and the advantage is even more in our favor.
