Default Blanks in a mosquito?

I just got a new bird dog, and I was wondering if it is ok to shoot blanks through my mosquito to get the dog use to bangs?

Ok maybe a stupid question, but why? Because theres no bullet? Just the shell and powder?

Yep! When we shot blanks in the Army, during training, we had to plug our barrels with a vented blank adapter. That way there was enough gas and back pressure to operate the system.
