Orange Avery Banded PerfectHold HexaBumper Black/White Avery Banded PerfectHold HexaBumper

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

    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.

      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!

    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

    Well made. Slightly larger and heavier than a "standard" dummy. Helped with proper holding.
    ProsThe larger ends encourage a proper hold.
    ConsCan't fit as many in my standard "bumper bucket".

    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!!

    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.
