The cold game wrap was designed by Holly-Jane Howell of Russetpeak Gundogs, also known for their @walkieswith_freya account on Instagram. 

The wrap originated from a common challenge as a novice gundog handler, for which the cold game wrap has been a transformational solution.  As a relative newcomer to gundog training, Holly-Jane was surprised by how few products there were that supported cold game training.  Holly-Jane's HPR was a confident retriever with a stronghold, but was getting confused by game, as many dogs are.  Holly-Jane reflects "You can see a lot of dogs thinking: Do I pick cold game by the head, the neck, a wing, a leg? Getting a good central hold can help a lot with a confident retrieve on game".  Some dogs may also be cautious when they are introduced to game, a canvas wrap acts as a good transitionary aid, acting as a helpful familiar texture while exposing the dog to game.  This wrap can help:

  • Dogs learn a central hold from a young age on game.
  • To give dogs a holding target for their retrieve that will help them to balance the weight of the bird in their mouth.
  • To build dogs' confidence in cold game.
  • Dogs transition from canvas to fur and feather in a gradual way, whilst still ensuring exposure to cold game.
  • To brace the wings to build dogs' confidence as they learn how to effectively hold game (the wrap can go over or under wings).
  • To support dogs to be soft-mouthed on game, unlike tights/stocking material that dogs can easily prick. 
  • Width approx. 4", Length approx. 18" - For use on all Game Birds.  

The cold game wrap can be washed and cleaned after use, helping it to be a more sustainable and environmentally friendly solution than single-use tights/stockings.  The cold game wrap can be adjusted to different-sized birds and has been tested on birds ranging from woodpigeons to cock pheasants.

Sporting Saint is delighted to manufacture the Cold Game Wrap and help Holly-Jane bring the product to the gundog market.
