Steve Says:

Transcript from Steve's Video:

This is the Avery HexaBumper. The HexaBumper is a little different from every other bumper on the market in that instead of being round, it is a six-sided dummy. It changes the way the dog grips it just a little bit, which has been real popular with folks. The V-grip design is set up to help the dog hold it in his mouth easier, especially when it's wet and slimy.

It comes in three different colors -- white, which is easiest for your dogs to see, orange, which is hardest for your dogs to see, mainly used for blind retrieves, and then what's called a flasher, which is a little different. It's a black and white dummy. Little different from most black and white dummies that we've seen. Generally, black and white dummies are half black and half white on this side, where the flasher has black and white sides. It looks a little different when it's going through the air.

The beauty of a black and white dummy is that it's going to stand out in any background situation. It's going to be easier for the dog to see when it's going through the air. It's going to be easier to see on a dark background or a light background, so they are great for marking.

All the Avery dummies come with a throw rope already attached, even in different colors. You can get black and white with the black and white. You get white with the white dummy. And then you get black with the orange.

Comes in two different sizes. The regular size is 2x10. The jumbo size is 3x11. I like a jumbo size because it's a little more natural from a dog. It gets them used to picking up either a duck or a pheasant. So, as they get bigger I'm going to with a bigger size dummy. It's just a little more getting them used to what they're going to be doing in the field.

By: Ben Maguire From MA

These bumpers are great. Only comment is the knots that come tied on the throw ropes come undone very easily. If I don't remember to re-tie them as soon as I get them, the bumper inevitably flys off behind me when I swing the bumper to throw it.

He can spot a white bumper from 50 feet; isn't forced to remember the exact fall area. The orange are near invisible to him, he has to concentrate and line right to them. Makes him a better marker.

"I have these in large and small, and in orange."

By: Fred Schoelier From NY

black lab. Hunts.
I have these in large and small, and in orange. They seem to put up with plenty of use, the flashers are easy for the dog to see and track, even in low light. Work for me runs late and starts early often, and she can keep track of them at 4 am and 10 pm as easily as high noon. The hex shape is easy for her to handle, and seems to encourage proper carry, or at least with these she carries from the middle, as opposed to trying to grab the ends. They do trap mud and dirt quite a bit, but I have thrown them in the washer or dish washer, top rack, when nobody is home to rat me out, and they take each equally as well. I have had these for nearly a year now, and while the cloth bumpers have worn out these keep going. All in all, a great, sturdy, easy to throw investment that takes abuse and use. I will use these bumpers only from here out, and if you are looking, you should buy these.

Labrador Retriever. Owns 2 dogs. Hunts. Family pet. Competes.
I am not a professional dog trainer but I train my dogs on an average 3 4 days a week year round. I love to duck hunt and in the off season run UKC hunt test. I think I have used just about every bumper available and now buy the Avery Hex Bumper exclusively. It works well for all age dogs. I like its solid, sealed construction because you can go from land to water and not have to worry about it sinking. The bumpers weight, size and rope are great for getting not only distance but when needed, the height. The throw rope size and quality is also easy on your hand which is great when training in groups having multiple dogs. The hex bumper is also easy to clean. Lightly brushing with soap and water will clean these bumpers restoring the white needed for the dog to see it when working on long marks during low light conditions which, to protect your dog from the heat, is when you train during the summer months in Louisiana.

The plastic is nice and thick and doesn't "squish" under pressure, and has not been punctured or damaged even after many tug sessions between the dogs. And it's a good weight for throwing. It's proven to be extremely durable for our weimaraner, who is crazy for water retrieving!

This bumper cracked while using it in the cold weather with in a few months of light use. It did not hit concrete or rocks or anything that would have made sense, it just split right down the side. Maybe there is a seem there or something. I am mostly pleased with all other Avery products, so I will give them the benefit of the doubt on this one, maybe it was just from a bad batch, but I would not buy another one of these models.

Video of Avery Regular HexaBumper Retriever Dummy



The Avery HexaBumper 6-sided design offers advanced technology that eliminates many disadvantages of round bumpers.

Features:

  • 2" x 10"
  • Approx. 8 ounces
  • VGrips promote soft mouth with superior hold
  • Hexagon shape helps reduce chomping tendency
  • Six flag sides offer dogs easier grip & hold
  • Valveless design will never take on water
  • Size works for training large dogs but is easy for small dogs to retrieve

    Color Options:

  • White is the most common bumper because it is visible on most backgrounds.
  • Orange is for blind retrieves since dogs cannot distinguish it.
  • Flasher is perfect for mark training. Alternating panels create a "strobe" that is visible to dogs on most backgrounds.

    Free Throw Rope included with every dummy!


    Pro's Tips:

      Your dog can't mark what he can't see so be fair to him by selecting the appropriate color bumper for each scenario. Training situations change often and can vary from one mark to the next in the same set up so make sure you have several of each color bumper when you head out for training. This simple rule of thumb will help you maximize your training time and efficiency.

      Help your dog be successful!
      Jeremiah Harston
      Sporting Dog Specialist
      Avery Pro-Staff


      Round up your bumpers and store them in a bag or bucket at the end of each training session. A bumper that is lying around becomes an invitation to a young dog to chew on. Not only is this negative reinforcement to your dog's mark training, but it is almost sure to get you an expensive and unnecessary trip to your vet's office. If you keep it simple, you'll avoid complications!
