"When I first saw, and held the new Air Flow Bumper, I thought, ‘Yeah right, dogs will like this, I don’t think – it’s weird.” I am a canvas and bird shaped dummy user. My, how I had to eat my words as I tried it out on numerous dogs. Not just with labs but with cockers, golden retrievers, springers, and a flatcoat. I also had very pleasing carries with very young puppies, springers and cockers – 8 weeks upwards. They all liked this unusual shaped dummy. Not only that, but dogs that had retrieving problems – balancing the dummy, dropping it, mouthing and just generally messing about – improved. I was fascinated watching this happen and owners of these dogs, who had these issues, found it difficult to understand also. The shape encourages a middle grip which balances the dummy and the narrow middle enables easier breathing. The flutes either side encourage a middle pick up and hold, and the weight of the dummy - which is light - creates a confident and comfortable feel. Easier breathing, when swimming, not allowing large amounts of water to enter the mouth; balance and acceptable texture, from my experience, are the main reasons this dummy is a winner. This is a dummy for all ages and all dogs you are working with on retrieving. I found myself really enjoying working with the dogs in training using this dummy, because I got improved results with each one." Martin Deeley August 2017
