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.
ProsGood construction, easy grip for the dog. Good coloring.
ConsRope is too short for good throwing.

Great Bumpers
November 2, 2021
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.
Prossize and durability and comes with string already installed. But not too hard.
ConsThe 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.
ProsMy 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!
ConsShe 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.
ProsNo air valve, durable, awesome grips, love it!!
ConsNo 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.

My dog loves playing fetch with this toy!
September 4, 2020
My 16 week old GSP Agnes just LOVES this toy. She can play fetch with it until she just plops down exhausted! It is great, easy to see and lightweight to throw numerous times. Will get a larger one when she is fully grown.
ProsLightweight and easy to see and gives my dog options of picking up by the rope or bumper.
ConsMy dog has already undone one of the knots that keeps the rope attached.

Smooth Bumper
September 4, 2020
I bought several black and white combo bumpers. Dog seems to like them. They are smaller than my other ones which tend to make them sink even in short grass and become invisible. Because they are smaller, you can fit a bunch in your bag or bucket. There are no sharp spots on them that can cause the dog's mouth to bleed. I can huck them quite a distance.
Pros-smooth -seems durable
Cons-sinks even in short grass

It’s great for training and playing with your dogs. It’s small enough to fit comfortably in the waistband of your shorts to be brought out as a reward. The white color is easily seen on creeks and on the Sound.

Review for Avery Regular HexaBumper Retriever Dummy
October 18, 2018
My dogs love them, but they are Dobermans who use them for retrieval play and so they DO NOT have a soft mouth on them and destroy them really quickly. But I'd say if used by a dog the way they are intended they would get a 5.0 easily!
