Can’t beat the price

Decent quality bumper at a great price. Perfect for training but Will not hold up to focused chewing by your dog.

Great Bumper
May 2, 2024
Although we have no formal training, this bumper is easy to throw a long distance, great contrast with the ocean, floats well and the dog is obsessed with it. It wouldn’t last long as a chew toy but that’s not what it’s made for. Great substitute for a stick or a ball at the beach!
  • High quality - bumper and rope
  • Great price
  • Heavy enough to throw far
  • Floats well
  • Easy to clean

Hi! My Golden loves these and will not leave the car when we go to the park without one in his mouth.

half black/white bird dummy
December 28, 2022
Would not recommend at all. From the first retrieve, the black part is just a painted-on coating and started to come off in my dogs mouth as soon as he bit down on it. I took it away and refuse to use it any more.

My dog is a very strong chewer. It could be more heavy duty to keep from getting chewed up as quickly.

Works well for my lab. I dipped the tip of the rope in quail scent which helps him find in heavy cover. So far seem to be good quality and the price can't be beat.

Got this bumper in orange. Perfect for river retrieves with my pup. Note -- if your goober dog chews off the top while in the river it will sink. LOL,- don't ask. I got it back! :-)

Great Dummies!!
June 2, 2022
I have bought all kinds of Dummies for our dogs and despite being among the least expensive, these are of no less quality than the expensive ones. In fact, they come with a rope, float, are flexible and a lot of fun in the pool, in the field for training and in the ocean! Our labs love them and I'll never buy the other brands again.
  • Float, flexible, durable and last a long time. The black/white can be seen from a distance and are easily found in the thick. They don't have an air valve to increase/decrease air pressure. This is a good thing as the valve often gets ripped off quickly and will fill with water.
  • I can't think of any Cons at this time. I've been buying these for 2 energetic and competitive Labs. They destroy every other toy in minutes. Not these!

would like to have a little softer plastic. but overall happy with the product. Not bad, not great.
By Margaret
Decent for the price
April 20, 2022
These are good for the price. The dogs can destroy them pretty easily if I don't pay attention, so it's good they're not too expensive.
  • lightweight
  • made in China. I wish Gun Dog Supply would bring back the American made bumpers that were just a tiny bit more expensive than these.

Good for the price
January 21, 2022
These are cheap and effective. They do get a little hard in the cold and a little soft in the heat, but so will any plastic item. The dog was able to chew through one, but that is because it was left out. Cannot beat the price compared to other name brands charging triple for 1 dummy.

The bumper was exactly as expected and my 5 month old pup loves retrieving it both in and out of the water. I would definitely recommend this to others and buy it again in the future if necessary.

I needed bunch of dummies for doing pile and T work, and with the low price of these, I figured they were worth a shot. So far, I have been really impressed. I bought several of both orange and white. The quality seems good. The plastic is soft enough to be slightly pliable, and the knobby texture is easy for my dog to grip. I would definitely purchase these again.

These were the least expensive training dummies I could find and seem to work fine. My Chesapeakes have seemed to consider training dummies their favorite chew toy in spite of my efforts to keep them out of reach except during training i.e. any dummies don't seem to last long once they get ahold of them. These work as well as any of the other dozens of dummies I have tried, at a more reasonable price. Very prompt and professional service from Gun Dog Supply too.

Transitions easily to 3" bumper

My dog was reluctant to pick up 3" knobby bumpers even with ear pinch. Once he got used to the knobby surface on the smaller bumper, he transitioned easily to the larger one.

If you need a bunch of bumpers these are okay. A friend’s lab punctured one easily by mouthing it but he has a hard mouth. A couple of my dogs didn’t want to pick them up initially even though I washed them with mild soap and rinsed well. Didn’t like the smell apparently. With repeated use they pick them up now. I prefer the plain firehouse canvas bumpers that last many years and have good feel.

Review for PAC Posi-Grip Knobby Soft Plastic Dummies
October 18, 2018
Well made soft bumpers. These are good transitional dummies between puppy canvas bumpers and hard plastic bumpers for mature dogs. They are heavier than the canvas bumpers, so they can be thrown farther from the gunner to avoid having your young dog run to the gun on marks,but they are soft for young dogs.
