    The Avery HexaBumper 6-sided design offers advanced technology that eliminates many disadvantages of round dummies. The Perfect Hold dumbbell shape encourages pick-up using the center of the dummy instead of the ends.

  • 3" x 10"
  • Dumbbell shape encourages pickup using the dummy's center
  • 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.
  • B/W 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!

    Hexabumper a hit
    December 28, 2021
    Purchased both orange and white hexabumpers for lining drills. A quality product perfect for the drill. The shape encourages the dog to hold them in the center.
    • The orange is perfect for blind retrieves.
    • None.

    Love these bumpers. Dogs are able to get a good proper hold on them. Bought these for my friend's two Goldens who is just learning field. They love them too.

    Dog's favorite
    May 10, 2023
    This retriever dummy is a favorite of my Labrador. Swimming and retrieving this dummy are her favorite activities.
    • The weight and shape of this dummy enable my dog to retrieve without consuming large amounts of water.
    • The dummy may not be appropriate for excessive chewers.

    Solid advancement in the bumper world. This is an excellent product from walking fetch and for those dogs that like to carry the bumper from the end.
    • Easy for the dog to pick up from any surface.

    Perfect hold bumper

    Great tool to help correct a improper hold. Rope is a bit short, but that’s an easy fix.

    Love the shape and weight!

    Perfect for training young dogs how to pick up a bumper correctly. And feels solid like it will last forever!
    • Could be too heavy for some puppies

    Best So Far!!!
    January 15, 2022
    I have tried many different bumpers, and so far this bumper is the best I have come across. Solid construction, a good weight, and the PerfectHold design helps my dogs develop a proper hold. Additionally, the orange bumpers seem to maintain a strong orange color where other brands have faded quickly. Great product!

    My dog really loves these bumpers and they encourage a correct balanced hold 😀
    • Easy to see against most backgrounds. Encourages dog to carry from the center.

    Great for Lab Play!
    November 16, 2021
    Our dogs are companions, not hunting dogs. These bumpers are among the most durable items that we have found for recreational retrieving in the water and out in the field. In our experience, items from Gun Dog Supply of of excellent quality and shipping is always immediate. Highly recommend!

    More expensive but worth it! I like the weight to these for the retrieve as well as the toss, the hexagonal bump promotes proper mouth pickup rather than "Cigaring" from the end. Dogs don't see colors like we do, only contrast. So for the dog this is easier to find than the blaze in my opinion. The contrast works well for water/land/snow retrieves. Nice the rope is this way as well.

    Only improvement would be to dip the knot in rubber. The knot at end is cut with heat and melted on the end so does not fray but has sliced my thumb open when throwing. Not an issue for the dog.

    My dog always grabs the middle like he’s supposed to. I did remove the rope to keep him picking it up by the rope.

    Nice addition to my collection
    June 29, 2021
    This is a nice addition to my pile of bumpers. I needed something to encourage a good hole instead of a dog that wants to "cigar" all of his deliveries. The hot weather here in the Northwest has prevented my from putting them to the test.

    Great Bumper I use it often and it promotes proper holding of the bird. I also use it on the table when I start working the trained retrieve.
    • Great shape and weight

    I like the design
    January 29, 2021
    Good product, I use it in my force fetch . Its weighted just a little and makes the dog have to hold it in the middle. I also like the black and white makes it easier for the dog to mark in the water.

    Good Quality and Construction
    January 16, 2021
    Well made. Slightly larger and heavier than a "standard" dummy. Helped with proper holding.
    • The larger ends encourage a proper hold.
    • Can't fit as many in my standard "bumper bucket".

    Improved Carry
    December 2, 2020
    This bumper did exactly as I had hoped and intended. The design of this bumper makes it difficult to grip the large hexagonal ends, and difficult to retrieve holding onto the ends due to the weight. Good product for sure!

    Dogs Love it!!
    October 5, 2020
    My dock dogs absolutely love this bumper. It is a perfect weight to throw and the smaller center enables them to catch it in the air more frequently.
