Ken, you're too complex for me. I carry a sharpie. I put "CDA" on all of my bumpers.
"Determining and applying the criteria for when and when not to use correction is the essence of the art of dog training. I make a distinction between a mistake and a lack of effort." - Mike Lardy - Volume I "After Collar Conditioning"
Scheels sells the DT soft mouth bumpers, too.
Just a heads up, Gun Dog Supply has a great deal on the Lucky Dog bumpers.
$22.20 for 7- you can mix and match.
HaHa! I was doing a search for this thread, reading all the posts so far, and then realized I was reading today's comments. We all must receive the same ads from GDS! Anyway, the more I read, the more I think I want to go with the DT's. Are there any sales on those anywhere? BTW, my dogs will pick up anything you throw, so its just a matter of quality and price.

I honestly don't know if my pup will pick up everything thrown for him. He has only had canvas dummies. I jumped on this deal and will get some DTs and Avery Hex bumpersin the next few weeks.
