Hey guys,

Just wondering what you would train with if you only had one item. Beside real birds. Would it be a dokken? Bumpers? The Avery real bird....

Bumpers is the easy answer but you will need lots of them about two dozen. If you are following a training program, you will see that they use only bumpers and birds (ducks and pheasants). Dokkens, ATB flashers are subsitute for birds but very poor ones. I only use dokkens and ATB (when I am short of ducks) when doing water work as ducks don't last very long when doing water work.

What Wayne said. I believe that, to a dog, all these things are bumpers, except actual birds. The rest are only different shaped bumpers.
