But don’t take my word for it – ask famed trainer and magazine columnist George Hickox:
“The Scott Linden Signature Series “Real Bird Bumper” should be in every dog owner’s tool box.
“This bumper teaches the dog to grip the body fully and not “cigar” or carry the bumper by the end. In the locked-down position it prevents young dogs from developing the habit of dragging by the wing. With the wing in the upright position the Real Bird Bumper simulates real-life retrieving. The Real Bird Bumper floats, is extremely durable, and is a great training aid in developing a professional retrieve on land or in the water.”
George Hickox conducts training schools for owners and their dogs across North America. The Real Bird Bumper is an integral part of his retrieving training. More on George, his seminars, e-books and schools here.
Made in the USA bySpindrift, an Oregon company with many years of both retail and national manufacturing and distribution experience in the pet market. All materials are strong, safe, non-toxic and sourced from U.S. companies. They will become heirlooms much like your favorite shotgun, passed down from dog to dog, generation to generation. But even more importantly, they will make your hunting and training better, more efficient, and more comfortable … for both of you.
The well-known dog trainer and seminar leader Ronnie Smith. Known for the “Silent Command System” of training seminars and DVDs developed with his cousin Rick, Ronnie said:
“Realistic training aids help all dogs to be better prepared and more successful in the field. Because of the realistic feel and nature of the Real Bird Bumper®, we incorporate it into our training program at Ronnie Smith Kennels.”
The Smith family has been training fine bird dogs for over 60 years. Ronnie and Rick Smith’s training videos, seminar schedule and other information is available here.
Original Real Bird Bumper: The most realistic retrieving dummy in the world. Same shape, weight and size as the real thing plus a 1000-denier Cordura “skin” to encourage a whole mouth grab. Floppy like a shot bird, with an articulated wing to familiarize dogs with the challenges of navigation while “blindfolded” (lock it down for pups to discourage cheating). No hard plastic parts to poke a dog’s eye or encourage head grabbing, no rigid foam to encourage hard mouth, and it floats! The most expensive retrieving bumper on the market and worth it! Available in pheasant size ($38.00 + $6.00 shipping & insurance) and quail size ($29.00 + $6.00 shipping & insurance). Allow four weeks for delivery.
