I started with simply treating Frank for touching the dumbell, since he didn't want to touch it at all. we worked up to holding it, then I would put it down and when he would pick it up I would say "Good take it!" take the dumbell and treat. He gradually picked up on the command and now understands. I say take it and he does.
Indy always loved his dumbell so I simply held it in front of him and said "take it" and he did, gotta love a BC sometimes, I think he read the rules before I did LOL
