I have two suggestions for you. First off, is your dog picking up one bumper and then setting it down to choose another? I believe that is technically shopping. If she just pauses for a moment and picks one up, it really isn't that uncommon. Here are the two suggestions I always hear from guys-

#1- only use 3 or 4 bumpers in your pile, spread them out three to four inches apart. As soon as your dog commits to one, bring your dog in/hit the come in whistle.

#2- If you do not run your dog in lots of trials you probably don't have to worry about it. Even if you do, how often does your dig hit a mark and have a pile of bumpers? #1 will more than likely solve the problem.
