    DefaultDumbell fit

    How do you think this dumbell fits Hoss? The bar seems a bit thin for his comfort (or at least as I preceive it), but I have a hard time judging it!



    and a lip view



    and what do you suppose his opinion is of our work tonight on generalizing the "hold" command to whatever I put in his mouth??

    The fit looks good to me.

    Looks good from here. You can get one that has a larger dowel but that one does look good.

    From Caleb: Yep, I'm with Kona--get use to it! Mom makes me pick up her keys when she drops them. All fine and good until I set off the panic alarm on Dad's van!

    Looks good to me too. Ruger's is a little bit smaller than that.

    Ruger does not have a good "hold". He will keep something in his mouth if I tell him "stay". But he has never done it for "hold". Your boy is doing great!

    Thanks for your replies! The reason that I wondered about the diameter of the dowl is that he rolls it around more than a thicker dumbell that I have (which is not wide enough for his mouth). Guess that one will do for now, training at least. I prefer plastic dumbells to wooden, 'cause of the chew factor.

    I prefer the thicker dowel. Buddy twirls the smaller dowel in his mouth, too. I didn't want the judge marking off for excessive playing with the dumbbell. Buddy loses enough points on his own without adding to the red marks. LOL
