The ropes are not long enough, and they come untied very easily.
  • My dogs love chasing the retriever dummies.

Dogs love the toy
April 20, 2023
My 2 labs love this toy, a little too much. The dogs were very excited to play with it but the rubber is soft and the toy only lasted 20 min before they had the rope off and the rubber torn apart.

Rope is too thick for optional power throw ball. If you dog likes to bite hard this will not float for long. Buy the rhino foam filled one instead
  • Small for puppy

I’ve tried other bumpers but keep coming back to these. They aren’t to hard or to soft and they hold up great.

I use GDS for all my training needs

Had to resupply my bumpers because I was training for back piles and casting and I didn’t want to use my orange bumpers. I needed more white ones. I always receive my orders quick. GDS is my go to place for my hunting dog.

These bumpers cracked and broke into on the first day of use.
April 29, 2022
These bumpers are prone to cracking and will break into if your dog is an aggressive playe..
  • Soft and flexible material, but heavy enough for easy throwing.
  • Cracks and break easily (same place).

My training friends have gone to a meeting Avery bumper that is larger at the ends than in the center. I intended to ordering that, but these were on sale and they are just fine. Go

Not the quality I was expecting
February 11, 2022
The dummies were slightly smaller than what I consider normal size. The ropes are not the best either, They could be a few inches longer and out of a material so that the knots do not come untied. And lastly, I was buying them because one of my dogs is tough on dummies, I thought this product would withstand the punishment but within a couple weeks one of the dummies broke in half.

Great Product Just One Slight Criticism
November 23, 2021
I upgraded to these throwing dummies from the softer type with the valves. I love the feel and the weight of these and my dog has no problem fetching them. I purchased the black and white striped color for better winter visibility as my other set were only white. I don't use these to train for hunting my dog is a pet who loves to play fetch. My one and only criticism of these is that, in my opinion, the rope is about 4 inches too short. My other dummies had rope about 12 inches long and these are about 8 which, for me, makes a huge difference in how far you can throw them. Thankfully I purchased extra ropes when I bought my other set so I switched them out and all is well.
  • Good construction, easy grip for the dog. Good coloring.
  • Rope is too short for good throwing.

After using several different brands of bumpers I have found that these Avery bumpers are the most versatile bumper. They are weighted correctly to allow for longer and more accurate throws. The rope is of good quality and the size of the bumper is perfect. This is the only bumper I will use moving forward.

My favorite size bumper
August 3, 2021
These bumpers are tough, but not too hard, and the perfect size for summer workouts.
  • size and durability and comes with string already installed. But not too hard.
  • The string that comes with it is a little too short...needs 2 more inches. But I'm not complaining too much here...not many bumpers come with string at all.

My English Mastiff;s all time favorite toy
June 9, 2021
I bought this for my Mastiff puppy who destroys most toys within minutes. Her mother has one and will retrieve it in the water and bring it back. She also finds frozen ducks that are hidden and literally points with her tail when she findis it, then another goes and retrieves it. Esther, at a year old, learned to sit, stay, retrieve, bring it and drop it the first time I did it with her.She sits and stares at me until I throw it again. I'll be taking her to a nearby lake to teach her there soom. We lovingly call them Mastireivers now. She did get the rope off it within minutes but I switched it for a longer dog show lead with a slip know which works much better and she can't get it off but Lord knows she tries. None of our other Mastiffs are allowed to play with it. She guards it all the time. Here she is guarding her dummy. The other is her Mother Theia bringing hers back in Tampa Bay.
  • My dog LOVES this toy and it's basically indestructible. I've been to dog shows that vendors say a ball or toy is indestructible and over the years will give them to one of the Mastiffs to prove it. They destroy them within minutes. Our dummy is the first one I've had that is truly indestructible and we go through A LOT of toys. I can't wait to get her in the water with it!
  • She did get the rope off within minutes but it's not the fault of the dummy. She's a 180-pound dog (still growing) and likes to figure things out that puzzle her.

My dogs Love Avery Bumpers
April 2, 2021
I don't have hunting dogs, but that is not the only type of dog that can benefit from this great product. Bogie is the #1 Dock Diving Doberman in NADD for 3 years running, He only jumps for his Avery black and white bumpers. They hold up well to his constant "chomping" and the weight is perfect. My other Dobe does not dock dive but also loves the bumpers. There are many Dock Divers who use these bumpers on the dock.

Awesome field and training bumper
March 31, 2021
I love this bumper. Training puppy at young age no air valve for them to get distracted with. As growing continues to be a valuable tool for training Lab retriever. Northeast ice have not run in water yet, but I do not expect any problems. My dog loves these so much that I will be using this bumper in stead of others for his initial water training.
  • No air valve, durable, awesome grips, love it!!
  • No air value for changing water conditions but that's what I like about this one.

A Favorite Dummy
January 22, 2021
The Avery dummies are durable, nicely weighted and the dogs love them. I think the Avery dummies are their favorite because of how they feel in the mouth. The rubber has some grip and is perfectly squishy (not too soft or hard). I like the Black and white versions because they are easy to see in all settings and have a cool look when spinning. For larger dogs go with the Jumbo version. My pup is nearly 7 months and the 2" dummy is a perfect size doing retrieving drills, though the 90 lb full grown lab loves it as well.
