How do you equate a "sweet deal"? If you are looking to train dogs for the long run, then I would recommend Neuman and Bennet's bumpers. They are not cheap, but if you buy then in dozen quantities they give you a little price break. Out of about three dozen I bought from them over ten years ago, I still have 35, lost one somewhere. They are still pliable and not damaged by UV. In the long run I think they have been a sweet deal, since I have not had to replace any.

Oh, by the way, I had 6 that were faulty, cracked along a seam. They replaced them with 8 and refunded my shipping expenses for returning the faulty ones as I remember.

Great folks to do business with.

I just use regular bumpers........Cabelas, at least the ones we got, are not as durable. The ones we got a Lion Country Supply were pretty good. www.lcsupply.com

Actually, it does appear that you are asking for a review... :wink:

Just increase the size of your training group. Every time I train with a large group I seem to have a few more bumpers in the truck than I arrived with. Don't do it on purpose, but it happens. :wink:
