Do you use streamers on marks for teaching marking concepts?

I've only usd them when training with a bumper boy, but the streamers make the bumper so much more exciting to the dog. They lock in on it the same way they do with a flyer. It is also easier to track from the second it's thrown to arc to fall.

I never thought about (there's a shocker! :shock: ) using regular bumpers w/ streamers (have tied some to birds when the background was just miserable), but I think I'll give it a go!

Can't say it any better than that!
