I’d initially balked at the price tag of the Blue-9 KLIMB® training platform, which retails in Canada for almost $500. Yet I kept hearing of the many awards it garnered, saw an excellent video of a trainer using it, and decided to give it a try. I liked it so much I ordered a second one.
Dog owners use platforms like these in many different ways – for play, rest, training, and fitness. The KLIMB® can be an excellent tool for physical conditioning, especially when used with the Blue-9’s Propel Air Platform™. As a training tool, it can be used to teach dogs to go to their “place” and to “wait” or “stay” on these platforms, with varying degrees of duration, distance, and distraction.
As someone with a busy schedule and multiple dogs, I’ll play with some while the others wait their turn on the platform, aided by its spacious and sturdy design. (Tip: I recommend adding the nonslip traction mat.)
The product is light and the legs can be easily unscrewed and tucked into the back of the platform for easy storage and transport. The design also allows for stacking and connecting multiple platforms together.
In short, I highly recommend it! I see it as a quality product that can serve you in different ways for a long time.
