Tie an Extra Knot in the Rope
June 14, 2022
Great dummies. Had a few ropes fly off after the factory knots tightened up and slipped through the hole. Otherwise great dummies.
ProsGreat quality
ConsKnots shrink after a dozen throws, allows rope to slip through hole. Easy fix.

Worked well initially
March 21, 2022
The product worked as needed initially… until my dog tore the material in two days and the internal sand fell out. Without the weight of the sand, the product could no longer be tossed away at any real distance. I won’t be buying again due to the lack of durability.
ProsGood looking, does it?s job when not broken.
ConsBroke within two days of use.

Very nice bumpers
March 8, 2022
I’ve always used white rubber bumpers. I didn’t realize how different size/color bumpers would impact my dog. I’m glad I purchased these because it allows me to throw different size, weight and color to keep retrieving interesting.

A good dummy.

Good dummy! Well made, holds scent well, and best of all, it's made in America not china! I've decided I will not buy anything further that is made in china!

Love this dummy. Blends into the terrain so my dog has to really seek it out.
ProsGood size, weight, and color.
ConsNot good if you need the dummy to stand out to your dog visually.

excellent quality
August 18, 2021
I have bought several of these dummies for work with my gundog. He loves the feel of canvas and the size prevents him from picking up 2 or 3 at once (which he can do with plastic dummies).
ProsSturdy, good rope for throwing, nice size and weight

Great Product
July 30, 2021
I have several dozen of these. They’re very durable and have a nice weight to them. I use these a lot for anything from pile work, casting drills, marking concepts, blind retrieves and more. So they get a lot of use around here. Excellent product.
ProsDurable, great size, can add scent easily, very versatile, natural feel.
ConsThey're canvas style dummy. So they do require minor care. If they're wet you need to store them in a dry environment so they don't rot or mildew.

The Very Best

I have tried many different brands over the years and this is by far the best throwing dummy I have ever used.
ProsThrowing distance, bounce and overall quality of the product.

Nice, but . . .
May 24, 2021
This is a solid training dummy and the streamers add a nice touch that stimulated some curiosity in my Lab. It's durable for sure, but a little on the heavy side, which makes good, long throws a bit difficult. Other than that, it's a great buy for the money.
ProsDurable and interesting for the dog.
ConsA tad too heavy for really long tosses.

Two thumbs up

Works as intended. Expect good wear looks well made. I used a flame to melt the knots on the rope so they stay knotted. Thanks

Have never used canvas before and needed one with a substantial core. This is it.

Nice weight
February 3, 2021
I recently purchased 6 of these training dummies to work with my Lab. I was having some issues with delivery of the rubber bumpers. She has been holding these bumpers much better and delivering to hand. I chose these bumpers based on cost and added weight. They throw well and seem to be holding up well.
ProsCost per unit. Durable Weight Comes with throw rope
ConsNone yet

These bumpers are great !!

I use these to work with my dog everyday. They hold up great. Highly recommend.

3" Black/ white weighted condura bumper
January 22, 2021
During the winter I switch to canvas bumper. I like the black/ white bumpers to show contrast.
ProsThey throw a long distance. The black/white stand out on the cloudy days with snow on the ground. The price is reasonable for the great bumper you receive.
ConsI need to buy more.

By Karen
Perfect Fit!
September 23, 2020
Bought the 2" and 3" orange bumper; my boy prefers the 3". We use it for therapy swimming and general exercise. Well made and dries quickly.
ProsPerfect size for my CBR Dries quickly Toss rope included with the bumper Seems to be well made which should lead to a long life (if we don't lose it) Orange color is for me - my favorite!

Good quality dummy

Good quality dummy for training. Maybe a little big and heavy for my 6month old lab, but she can grow into it. I will definitely pick up more if needed.

A good bumper to throw/launch when greater visibility is desired. Streamers are attention getting.

Review for 3" White Weighted Canvas Throw Dummy with Feather Strap by RRT
September 26, 2016
Chessies are notoriously tough dogs and are very rough on equipment and handlers. This works so much better than just strapping a wing to the typical dummy. It gives the dog the feel and taste of real feathers, and they learn to hold on to the bird and not crush it. I have two and they are the only ones I use. I wish I thought of this design.

I use canvas bumpers primarily for cold weather training when plastic bumpers become too hard and uncomfortable. Sure, a decent retriever will still fetch a rock hard bumper, but I like to enhance the experience by changing to canvas for working in sub-freezing temperatures. These bumpers are a great size, shape and weight, and seem very well made. I haven't used them yet because of the above mentioned intended purpose.

I am not a trainer but this is what I was looking for as far as durability, texture, and pliability. My dog is five and is incredibly intelligent and she gets very excited when I take it out to work with her. I wish I had seen the dove trainer and would have got that first, had I seen it. She is doing fine with this. It's what I was looking for when I bought it. Price is fair, shipping quick. Good deal.

I have used Hallmark (excellent) and Remington (not so good). The RRT dummies are as good as the Hallmark. As all of our retrieves are water based, they float well and throw well.

It works really well in the snow. The snow doesn't stick to it and it doesn't get hard or cold like the rubber dummies. My favorite so far.

Review for 3" Orange Weighted Cordura Throw Dummy by RRT
November 13, 2015
The dummy is great. Her adult teeth have just come in, so this was a good 'teething' gum toy for the last few weeks. Lightweight, durable fabric, and endurable fabric! Good mouthing toy as well. Excellent replacement for tennis balls and other toys not good for teeth. Best thing is it is so safe for her to chew, nothing breaks off. Excellent!

Review for 3" Orange Weighted Cordura Throw Dummy by RRT
November 10, 2015
It could be a little heavier for further throwing distance, and the throw rope is too small diameter. The rope is so small even with the knots in it. Will pull through the eyelet. I ended up making my own rope which is larger diameter.

We're training our pup to retrieve. Being a medium sized breed, we were unsure what size dummy to order. This one is perfect, and she LOVES bringing it back. Now let's hope we can transition to birds easily.
