Dog dummies, often referred to as bumpers, are excellent training tools that can also be used for play time. These training tools are available in varying levels of firmness. Typically a soft dummy will help teach your dog how to lightly retrieve toys, animals, etc, while a firmer dummy may be more resistant to chewing. Usually long, cylindrical, and bright, training dummies are also available in more realistic bird designs. Always be sure to inspect the dummy for loose or torn pieces of foam, as they can be a choking hazard for your pup.
