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


  • 3" x 11"
  • Approx. 14 ounces
  • VGrips promote soft mouth with superior hold
  • Hexagon shape helps reduce chomping tendency
  • Great for long marks as used in field trials and hunt tests
  • Easier for dogs to see at much further distances
  • Six flat sides offer dogs easier grip & hold
  • Valveless design will never take on water
  • Perfect size & weight to condition dogs for real ducks

    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.

  • Pro 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.

      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!

    WHITE Avery Jumbo HexaBumpers

    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 for a dog. It gets them used to picking up either a duck or a pheasant. So, as they get bigger I'm going to go 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.

    Great Water Dummies - Avery Jumbo Dummies
    October 6, 2020
    I live in the UK and imported several of these Avery Jumbo Dummies for doing water training with my Hungarian Wirehaired Vizslas. I find that these dummies have just enough give to make them comfortable for the dogs to hold quietly in their mouths. Some other makes are a bit too soft and encourage the dog to mouth the dummy which could encourage them to mouth and damage a bird. Very pleased with these Avery Water Dummies.
    • Firm, good colors and size . Long rope makes them easy to throw.

    Switched from 1" to 3" Hexa Bumper
    September 3, 2020
    Our normal bumper is the 1” hex black and white. I switched to the 3” black and white for added weight to increase my throw distance. Triton is appreciative of my longer distance.
    • The weight and grip for me while still being easy for my lab to grab
    • My lab is tough on bumpers so he has already punctured
    • one of the two we bought. This was also a problem with the 1" so always need to have a spare.

    We have a Newfie and we go to the beach every morning with his bumper. IT's a great product. The only one that lasted for so long. So many people at the beach ask about this bumper, because it always looks like new.
    • Lasts forever. Unless you lose it :-(
    • All dogs want to play with it. My dog doesn't like that.

    Great for Gun Dog Training All Year
    October 2, 2023
    I started out with Avery's smaller hexabumpers while my red lab was a pup, but overtime I realized quickly they were not giving him the feel of the weight of a bird in his mouth and needed something bigger and heavier. These jumbo bumpers were the perfect option, and have a very solid feel to them, with great weight (maybe 1/2lb or so each) and large enough to replicate the size of a bird that has been shot. Also, these Avery bumpers seem to be the most durable bumpers for the price, comparable to the new Gunner bumpers but at a fraction of the cost. Highly recommend getting these for your training bag.
    • - Large size mimics the size of a dead bird
    • - Great weight
    • - Easy to through soft-rope included
    • - Not good for infusing with scents for blind retrieves

    We use them for dock diving toys, and Bogie loves this bumper!
    • color combination
    • he is hard on his bumpers, and chews them up so I buy a lot of these.

    February 22, 2023
    My bag of bumpers was getting old and worn out. I thought something new/different might be in order. To be honest, I thought it would take my dogs a while to take to the new bumpers. Wrong, from day one, when given the choice they would choose these Avery's when working to a pile. I like the fact that they are larger/heavier, more like a real duck. Great product.

    AveryJumbo HexaBumper Dummy... the best ever.
    August 31, 2021
    We purchased six of these, two of which were gifts. I can't begin to describe how Hunter, our Labrador loves them. He does seem to have a better ability to see these (the black and white ones) in the waves than the single color bumpers. The reports from the dog owners that received them as gifts were equally as positive. This is the only bumper we will use in the future. Thanks for the videos on your site which convinced us to go with the larger ones.

    I help at a rescue shelter. Most of the dogs are pit bull mixes and can be agressive/destructive chewers. These bumpers are the only thing that seems to comfort them and hold up to thier bite.

    • .The product is WELL MADE, Highly durable, and reasonably priced
    • haven't found any yet

    My dog is addicted to these
    August 14, 2021
    I honestly think he dreams about chasing this all night long. He doesn’t realize it’s work and would do this all day long if we’d let him. I will say that they don’t seem quite as tough as they were a few years ago, but that’s my only negative. As you will see from the photo, the muddier this gets, the more fun he seems to have.
    • The perfect size and great color options
    • The loop that holds the rope seems to break away more easily than it used to.

    Great weight and quality
    April 20, 2021
    I was pleasantly surprised when I received these bumpers. They have a soft feel, but a great sturdiness to them. I was concerned that my young, small mouthed female lab might trouble holding on to them, but she has no trouble with them. They angled sides make them easy to grip and the weight of them is great.

    Best dummy on the market. I have 3 retrievers and they are hard on equipment. This is the only one that has lasted over a month.
    • Super durable
    • A bit heavier and a little tough for my wife and kids to use.

    Great product! Bought a handful for to use as i got into handling with my pup and it made the transition smooth. Durable, realistic weight and worth the money.
    • The throw rope for each one had to be re-tied and fused because the knots had came undone right away.

    September 2, 2020
    I have been competing in dock diving for several years now and these are my go-to. They hold up very well (none of my Malinois have soft mouths) and any time I order a new supply the shipping is very quick. I would highly recommend!

    I use black and white. Dogs see the orange as gray so orange is not good.
