Dog Obedience Dumbbells

J&J Dog is your source for dog obedience dumbbells!
How can training with obedience dumbbells help improve my dog’s performance?
Obedience dumbbells teach your dog precise commands for listening, retrieving, and “holding” the dumbbell. Working with your dog in Obedience trials, Schutzhund competitions or other areas where dumbbells are used will strengthen the way you give commands to and reward your dog, will hone his skills for a proper bite and retrieval, and is a fun way to exercise your dog physically and work his brain as he finds and brings the dumbbell back to you. It can even teach him to be less “mouthy” and help him discern what to pick up and will advance him to more intense problem-solving.
What types of dog obedience dumbbells do you carry?
J&J Dog offers dog obedience equipment for recreational use or AKC-approved competition, including regulation dumbbells. The AKC Regulations state that the dumbbell- which must be approved by the judge- will be made of one or more solid pieces of wood or non-wooden material similar in size, shape, and weight to a wooden dumbbell. We carry unfinished, coated with a clear finish, and plastic dumbbells in a variety of colors.

“The molded dumbbells are good quality, made to last and last! They are available in a limited range of sizes but are a good dumbbell for a fair price.”

Product Features:

With our J&J Molded Plastic Dumbbells, you won’t encounter any more brokenwooden dumbbells for the rest of your life!

Legal for use in all A.K.C. and U.K.C.-sanctioned matches and trials, these bright dumbbells are nearly identical to wooden competition dumbbells in size and shape, but they do weigh slightly more.

A slight texture is molded into the surface of the bit, giving your dog a better grip. (Though these are made from a non-toxic plastic, they are not designed to be a "chew toy" and should not be left with an unattended dog.)

A Top Reviewer Says:

“I've used these dumbbells for years and love them. I prefer wood due to less bouncing. For a properly trained dog they are wonderful. I use them with my border collies, shelties, a lab, even my bitework-trained malinois and Dutch Shepherds. Love this product!”

Product Features:

These regular Hardwood Dumbbells are hand-crafted from fine, kiln-dried hardwoods.
