Hi, this is my first time posting. I'm interested in using the duck bucket in my act to produce a West highland terrier dog, but I have not been able to find the measurements of the bucket. Can you please tell me the height and width of the bucket? And do you guys think a dog of that size can fit in the bucket?
Thanks Smile

You may have better luck posting this in the Polly Want a Cracker forum, second to last in the Stage/Platform/Parlour section. It specializes in performing with animals.

No, I would not use a dog because of the size. I use to use my kitten in the bucket. Now my cat is to big for the bucket. I think it is best if a magician builder builds you a mirror box.

Sounds like you may have to get one custom made

Dave Harlin, makes the best duck bucket on the market and can custom make them at a price just slightly higher than the mass produced ones. He can also e-mail you pictures on measuring your dog for the bucket.

His email is harlinmagic@att.net

I love the drop-out feature and how deceptive his bucket is. I highly recommend them.

Thanks I will have to look in to the drop out bucket. But I'm on a budget so I don't know. Smile

I recommend the Harlin Bucket as well. My adult ducks fit in it. He's also a real nice guy and easy to work with.

Beware of the numerous "Duck buckets" for sale on ebay, etc. I believe they are made by MAK. Although they are priced right and resonably made the Load area is no way big enough for a Duck (or your Terrier). They will fit a dwarf rabbit. Chalet and Owen make the cream of the crop in Buckets $$$.

Chalet will make one to suit you. I had to modify my dove props to produce live lobsters for a chain. Make sure you weight test any equipment you use for a dog that was meant to be for something else.

If George at Chalet can't get your "dog" bucket in time, try Joe at magicauction.com. He specializes in wooden props.

I recently saw an oval bucket, on the magic auction web site. It appears just right for a small pooch and is a little different from the rest.

Don't know about the quality but it is only $90 on auction.

Scroll down there are a few buckets.
Nothing would get done at all, if man waited so long that no one could find fault with it.

Well I ordered the bucket a while ago from Dave Harlin. I ordered it custom made and now just waiting for it to ship. Hopefully soon, cause the show I need it for is next week. So now it's the waiting period.

UPDATE: Feb 14, 2004

I got the bucket yesterday...and let me say it's big. It's about 21 inches high (comes up to my knees)and is 22 inches across. But it's great.
