Do you have a dog that mouths the dumbbell, gloves or scent articles?

Previously, I produced a series of videos demonstrating skills we can practice in the house when the weather has us confined inside. “Hold,” is certainly one of those skills.

This video demonstrates how I use a dog’s opposition reflex to improve “Hold.” Our dogs need to hold the dumbbell without chewing or rolling it. Use this technique with your dumbbell first, then you can apply the skill to other objects.
