Majordog`s Barbell toy has been designed specifically for retrieval training with dogs. This toy is fantastic for all land-based retrieval games and training. The added weight of the Barbell will ensure your dog will be tired after playing or training. Majordog products were developed in Sonneberg Germany, the Toy Capitol of Europe, through intense collaborative efforts between trainers and dog owners. All of the training items and toys are designed, tested and TUV-certified for safety. TUV-certified means that our dog toys have undergone and passed the same rigorous contaminant testing as a child`s toy. Majordog toys are the world`s first to do so. The toys are tested to human standards and do not contain toxic or harmful chemicals.
