Socializing with a Fake Dog?

    Okay this may seem weird, but I was thinking...Since I can't find many dogs to help Coal practice with Socialization and proper manners in approaching other dogs...what if I got a stuffed dog to practice with? He really doesn't understand the T-approach or the arc, and it isn't getting better without practice.

    I heard that they used stuffed dogs to help in determining dog-dog aggression and some tidbits on the interwebs indicate some usage of rehab for the dogs, but I can't find very much detail on it. Think it is a plausible temporary solution for our situation?
