    Steve Says:

    The Lucky Dog Regular Dummy has been our best selling dummy for the last decade. They are perfect if you prefer a soft yet durable knobby dummy. I have used them for years with my dogs and they hold up great. We include a dummy rope so you can throw them further.

    White is an easy color for young dogs to see against most dark backgrounds and on water.

    Orange is a hard color for dogs to see against most backgrounds and on water. They are recommended for advanced training and for use in "blind" retrieves. The advantage of orange is that it's easy for you (the handler) to see but hard for the dog to see.

    The half black / half white color setup makes this the perfect dummy for throwing marks with young dogs. The advantage is that the dummy is going to be visible to the dog no matter the background. When you throw the dummy in the air the black will stand out against the light blue sky. When it lands in the water or on land the white will stand out against the dark background. Half and half dummies make it easy to teach your young dog how to watch for game and improve his marking skills.

    The valve allows you to add water to your dummy to give it more weight. This allows you to throw it further and it makes it sit lower in the water. I strongly recommend that you test them before adding any water. If you over do it, they will sink to the bottom. Test them in your sink or in shallow water first!

    Transcript from Steve's Video:

    This is a Lucky Dog regular plastic dummy. It's our most popular dummy that we sell. We recommend these for dogs six months old and up. They are knobby, easy for the dog to grip. They've got a water valve. And like all of our dummies they come with a throw rope.

    The idea behind the water valve, it pops open. You can add water to it. And what that does is that increases the weight of the dummy. Now, you've got to be careful about that because if you put a little too much water in, it hits the water it's going to sink. The reason for the water valve, you add the weight, when it hits the water it's going to sink lower in the water. It makes it harder for the dog to see.

    I recommend if you are going to do that that you practice with it in a sink or a tub just to make sure that you have your weight correct before you drop it in the lake and never see it again.

    White is the easiest color for dogs to see in most situations. We generally recommend that for a younger dog. On a dark background it's going to show up easily. It makes it easier for them to mark.

    As they get older, we're going to move to orange. Orange is the hardest color for a dog to see. It blends in with almost every background. The idea behind orange is that when you are working on blind retrieves, the dummy is easy for you to see but difficult for the dog to see. That way the dog is required to use your guidance to find the dummy.

    The third of the lucky dog dummies is the half black/half white. This is probably my favorite of the ones that we sell. Because of the contrast between the black and the white, the dummy is going to show up on any background. When it's going through the sky, you are going to have the colors mixing. On a dark sky the white is going to show up. On a light sky the black is going to show up. When it lands on the ground, same thing there. If you've got a dark background then the white is going to be easy for the dog to see. If you've got a light background then the black will be easy for the dog to see.

    So I prefer these especially for marking drills. They are much easier for the dog to see.

    Best water toy
    July 25, 2021
    My dog Chance has been using the sport dog since he was a puppy. I used it as a training toy in the park but mostly in the water. It has great quality and comes with the rope. Any time I take Chance swimming people always ask me where did I get that great toy.
    Bright color floats and comes with the rope None

    Holds up and is strong
    June 24, 2021
    Good size for my 85 pound lab. Seems to be made from reasonably thick material. Gus usually destroys toys pretty quick. He has had this for 2 weeks and it looks great. Rope is regular looking rope and it hasn’t came off or untied. Good weight to be able to sling it out there far.
    Good weight Strong Thick Holds up to abuse None really.

    My dog's love this "throw toy" and walk around with it all day. It's a great toy for non-hunting dogs to get plenty of exercise.
    Easy to throw and also durable. Great way to run your highly active dogs. It is also a great toy to use in the pool. I used it to teach my Aussie to jump into the pool. The lab automatically jumps into the pool. One dog tends to chew on the string but since you sell extra string, not a problem anymore.

    Perfect to start a pup
    December 19, 2020
    Nice lightweight, but still can slim quite far. Perfect for starting my pup on retrieves. Photo is pup I started with this bumper at 2 mos pictured is Chianti retrieving a pheasant at 4 mos. may not be of use for you sorry no product picture. I will say the weight and size of this product creates confidence & gives them the right start to be able to retrieve a pheasant at 4 mos

    My dogs love the bumpers! Fetch & Retrieve, practicing hand signals, all easily done with these bumpers. Good size, fits in dogs mouth easily. I have white, orange and all very effective for training! I have 2 Labs- we use these during our training sessions daily. They love training using these!
    Size, no cracking or breakage as they are heavily used. Good price. Nothing.

    SportDOG Original Lucky Dog Dummy is the Best for Recreational Retrieving
    September 4, 2020
    Our two Labs are family pets, but they are definitely retrievers, and we spend summers lobbing the SportDOG Original Lucky Dog Plastic Dummy into the pool for them. This product is the best value we have found. The plastic is a little softer than ones that are more heavy duty, but that's why we like them.
    Great price, always available when we need them. Because the plastic is softer, the dummies do tear after a certain amount of abuse.

    Better than tennis balls but not for chewing
    September 15, 2022
    Our 11 month old yellow lab loves retrieving the SportDog Lucky Dog Dummys both on land and in the water. He can't get enough. A word of caution though - do not let your chewer spend any time unsupervised with the dummy. They are not built for chewing.

    These dummys are made very well. My GSP still has a lot of puppy in her and gets to chew on them more than I like before I can get them from her during practice runs. They’ve held up quite well. The black/white line on them are painted good and the ropes have held up great for long throws. Great product. Great price

    Lost this most valued bumper in a jungle marsh situation behind a fence where dog could not retrieve it! Had to replace it immediately since this travels with us and we are on the road a lot.
    Combination of black and white makes this visible in different terrain and water situations. Small circumference easy to carry for long swims. Our "go to" dock diving dummy: highly visible in air and pool. Durable. Travels well. None.

    Great Bumper/Dummy
    April 13, 2022
    These are nice and tough, the valve allows you to add a little water and put some weight into it for longer throws or to sink it a little so the dog has to look for it more.
    Tough. Adjustable weight and buoyancy.
