Our extreme "water dog" is a German Shepherd who LOVES to retrieve from the water. His mouth is hard, he is fierce, and the Avery HexaBumper is very durable. He can bite through a store-bought bumper in a week or less, but the Avery is very durable and doesn't even have teeth marks in it yet! We appreciate the attached rope so we can sling it further also. Great product.

Highly recommended, worth the investment. Wish I could give more stars. Only been a few sessions, but already see improvement in confidence and hold in our retrieves! They look great and give us both a style and performance advantage! Can't wait to get more!!!

"Avery is the best and most durable of any we've used."
After trying two other brands, Avery is the one I will continue to purchase. Our dog has a hard mouth (he's a German Shepherd, after all!) and Avery lasts the very longest of all bumpers we've used. He retrieves them from the river multiple times every day - as this is his favorite exercise. He requires a lot of time to burn his energy and enjoy life, and Avery is the best and most durable of any we've used.

Dog is my Daughters. I work with him when I can. Dog likes the Dummy. He wants to be in water all the time with them. My Daughter has business on Clinton Lake. That is where I work with Her dog named Chili. He knows a lot of people that come to her place Boondocks Grill. Thanks Bud Wilson

"This is a superior product compared to many that are similar."
I look for new bumpers to compete in dock diving competitions. My lab catches it easily. Awesome quality. This is my second order from your company. The shipping was fast. They arrived in time for Christmas. I will purchase from you again.

Our dog has a 'hard mouth'... by breed. He's not a water dog or a hunting dog, but you can't convince him he's not. He loves to retrieve the Avery HexaBumper more than any ball or stick AND more than any other brand of bumper. It is unbelievable how he will pick the Avery out amidst an array of other 'fetch toys', which is what he thinks it is. He will jump off river banks to get it and also fetch it on land. It is convenient to throw because of he attached rope. We buy the Avery because it is more durable than any other bumper, and before we found this brand we would go through too many bumpers. These are durable. As long as we have Bentley, we will buy Avery HexaBumpers.

These bumpers are great! Avery changed the recipe of the rubber they used, and it was for the better. These bumpers are softer and help with mouthing issues with younger dogs. Just recently replaced all my bumpers with these.

My wife and I take our 6 month old lab Zoe to the to the dog park almost every day. We have tried using other Bumpers but this one is by far the best we have come across. I have seen dogs that have never been in the water and some that look like they donâ€™t belong in the water go after this thing. It truly is a great product and for anybody considering them, get two. The price is right and Zoe stays more focused when you have the second one in your hand ready to throw.
Thanks, Chris Jacksonville, FL

Good solid bumper. No issues with leaking yet. Good quality. They have been in the hot sun, and have been frozen for days on the end this winter. No problems. The dog seems to see these very well. Excellent product. Have bought more recently and will continue to.

"This is my first Lab and first dog I am working to train. She loves these."
I am new to training dogs. This is my first Lab and first dog I am working to train. She loves these. I have at least one of each other kind/brand, but I have three of these. She prefers these over all the others.

Good size, like retrieving a duck. Attached string helps get much longer throws. Sometimes my dog grabs it by the string which is annoying. Very durable. They don't shatter when below freezing and are difficult to chew.

Sorry, I had said it was short on another review; I had purchased some smaller ones too. The jumbo are great. I really like the quality, they are soft for the dogs to pick up and hold. I will be ordering again.

"Great bumper , Very well made and very high visability even at long distance !"
I like Avery Dummies because of the 6 sides. The dog holds them better than the round ones especially when they get wet in the dog's mouth. But the reason I purchased more is because they are softer and with the older harder ones I notice at times they would make the dogs gums bleed especially in the winter. The hard ones wear like iron. I hope the soft ones do the same. I would rate them 5 stars.

They are nice bumpers as long as you don't use them in the cold. In Sask in the winter if they land on a herd surface the shatter. They should be made of a sorter rubber. I have broken 2 and that ticks me off. As a result we use different brands now.

The durability of this toy seems to be questionable. It is already flattening after on dock jumping competition. It will be very good for catching competition when i need a heavier toy that is soft to catch. I am not entirely disappointed and it will definitely be a keeper in my arsenal for that reason alone.

I've had several of these in the past and loved them. The one I received this past time was very soft (almost completely deflated). Not sure if it was a defect or not, but I will put my money into other brands of bumpers in the future.

"Purchased one about a year ago, after using it in cold weather noticed it cracked. Not the best cold weather bumper."
