    I'm looking for a life-size siting manikin for a German shepherd dog.

    Thanks

  2. Start with a coyote or wolf, that is close and go from there.

    Yep!
    Order without rods, and sculpt form there... it's just foam.
    Rasp where needed and build up with clay or mache' where needed.
    Reference would be crucial.

    The others are right- ther iare no manikins for the dog. Save the head carcass so you have a referece when you are altering the coyote or wolf form. I think the coyote form might be too narrow on the jaws- I think I would concentrate on wolf form siince it is easier to take off foam than put it on.Good luck.

    Why do you hate ducks and geese so much? Low material cost- good profit. Is it the fleshing on the wire wheel?
