Training a retriever takes time and patience. It also takes the right gear to help you achieved the desired result, a finished dog to be proud of. Drills, whether they focus on marking or blinds, are essential to a young dog’s development. The ASD Hexabumper uses a hexagonal design that prevents the dog from rolling the bumper in its mouth, creating a bad habit that is hard to cure. They are available in 2” of 3” versions in white, orange, and black/white flasher. Prefer a canvas bumper? We have that too in the same configurations as the plastic Hexabumper. Real birds are great for training but not always practical. That is where the EZ-Bird comes in. These innovative training bumpers replicate the feel of a real bird and encourage proper carry. ASD has all of your training needs covered with whistles, lanyards, scents, and heeling sticks as well.
