I have just seen a lovely little item on a FB group I am on that made me smile.
Five months ago a member posted that their new young puppy had run off with their pinpointer, and it was not seen again
Well it redeemed himself yesterday ... when he trots in the house with it in his mouth
Better still after 5 months out in all weathers it still works perfectly
I am pleased to hear that the puppy was suitably rewarded with treats.

Smart doggie. Trouble with a smart doggie is that this one's learned that nicking detecting gear, hiding it up for a bit and then producing it again later leads to treats, so expect the detector to go awol for a while next

I posted all that I know, but I got the impression that it had originally taken it from the house rather than when out detecting.
But the FB item showed a photo of the dog, a brown and white collie, and it was so cute that I could never have told it off (thinking about it if it had run off with my pinpointer and lost it l might have).
However, I have know a horse grab a Garrett "carrot" pinpointer and try to eat it think it was a real carrot
As most of my permissions are equine I have never considered a Garrett pinpointer
