    They are beautiful Karen. Did you find out if they are durable? Maybe they can give you a reference?

    I think she said about $35 for each dumbbell. I need to email her back with a few questions about guarantee about breakage if I am going to pay that much. I also need to reread the regs to make sure they are legal in the obed ring. They'd be fun for training if nothing else!

    I like the solid one piece plastic from J&J.

    I've actually seen the wooden ones fall apart at trials, that's why I've always gotten the one piece plastic.

    I can't tell from the photos if those are one piece, or if the dowel is a separate piece. If the dowel is separate, I'd avoid them.

    Nice Karen!

    Linda I've had my one piece plastic break on me, too. They all can break. Thankfully, Max200 replaced the plastic one since it was a defect, but it did break! Had a one piece wood one break, too. I actually go with what the dog likes. For the longest time Caleb only wanted wood. Now he uses plastic. Micah does better with wood. But those sure are nice! I bet the maple ones are nice and durable. That is what I get from Max 200 are their maple ones.

    I'll stick to my $3.85 ones from Omaha. I've only had one break and that was at our indoor training place after several dogs and many years of tossing. I always keep a spare in my bag and have a brand new one in my car.

    With new pups constantly here, I would be so ticked if something like those above were chewed!!!!!

    The only problem I can see with those is if you trial outside in the fall and there are a buch of dead leaves in the ring...they might kind of be hard to find in tall grass. White is always so much more visable. I never realized that there were obedience shows inside I thought all obedience trials were outside till I started reading on the web...LOL. I don't think there are any Inside trials in Southern California. Probably not a problem with in door trials.
    Light, "weedy" individuals are definitely incorrect; equally objectionable are cloddy lumbering specimens. Labrador Retrievers shall be shown in working condition well-muscled and without excess fat. Females should weigh between 55 and 70lbs and Males between 65 and 80lbs. Height females 21.5 to 23.5 inches males 22.5 to 24.5 inches at the withers.

    I had not thought about that kind of scenario, but outdoor trials are very rare around here. I think in 10 years of obedience trialing, I have been in one outdoor trial, when Belle was still in Novice...about 9 years ago.
