Help Finding the Teeter or See-Saw You Need
The teeter or see-saw can be fun for some dogs and a real challenge for others, either way it is a favorite for home courses to help every dog master and enjoy the teeter. However, there are several options to choose from depending on space, your dog size, and how much effort you want to put into your plank. Now that you have decided to get a teeter for your home practice, you are lost on which one to get. Here are some points to consider to help you get what will work the best for you.
Complete teeter set: This teeter is easy to set-up and ready use for any size dog, making the competition teeter seesaw base + plank the way for you to go. The plank is traction-treated aluminum-based plywood with a fully adjustable base that is powder-coated steel. A fantastic option for someone who wants to just open up boxes and put things together and go!
Practice See-saw base: This see-saw base requires the most work to set up; you need to paint, and traction treat your own plank. However, it is also one of the affordable options, and works for any size dog! The teeter is sturdy as well as affordable. The base is also weatherproof, so you really only have to store your plank out of harsh weather.
Mini travel teeter: This teeter is a godsend for anyone who has a small to small-medium sized dogs. It is also easy to store as well as travel with. hen you take it apart, it’s small enough to fit in the trunk of a car! The plank comes to you painted and traction treated for ready-to-run fun!
Teacup competition teeter: This is a 8’ board that comes to you painted, traction treated and ready to go on delivery! It is akin to the travel teeter in size making it limited to use by small/medium dogs. Unlike the travel teeter, it is sturdy for competition so the plank is solid and does not lend itself to the same ease of travel. It is perfect for TDAA competition and home/club practice.
Rocker Board: While technically not a teeter, for extreme space constraints a rocker board can at least help you work with your dog on motion and contact behaviors. It is also a great foundation work piece especially for dogs with confidence issues on the teeter.
