    Default So who is making the safest bumpers?

    http://www.environmentalhealthnews.o.../2012/dog-toys

    I do not let my dogs chew on bumpers , but sometimes doodoo happens and they get ahold of one.
    IS there a safe bumper?

    Not sure what you mean by safe? If they swallow them probably none of them. If they just chew them, I know that the N&B bumpers are non-toxic and they make them themselves in the US so they know what goes into them.

    Mary Lynn posted the link a couple days ago (http://www.retrievertraining.net/for...7-Bumper-issue).

    I am under the impression that BPA is in the hard plastics, and so if your bumpers are soft they have no/less BPA?

    I wonder what bumpers they used in the study.
