Dog bone snaffle bit
A dobie bit is a specialized mouthpiece of the bit used for training and showing dogs to perform tricks and retrieve game. Doobie bits are designed specifically to be inserted into the dog's lower jaw and are a staple item in most dog training systems. The bit is placed between the lower jaw and upper jaw, and works by applying pressure to the upper and lower jaw, forcing the jaw to move in the correct position. Doobie bits come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes to fit dogs with all kinds of mouths and sizes of jaws.
Dog doobie bits are an effective tool to help train dogs with poor or tight-set teeth. The doobie bit allows the dog's mouth to remain closed while working to keep the mouthpiece securely in place. Dog doobie bits have been used in dog training since the early 20th century, with early designs including the "dog and bone" model, the "fetch bone," and the "basket" shape.
The original doobie bit was introduced in the late 19th century in the form of a bone that a dog held between his paws to perform tricks. However, it was not until the early 20th century that doobie bits began to be made as a specialized mouthpiece that could be inserted into a dog's mouth. The first doobie bit was patented by George Miller in 1902.
There are several different names for a doobie bit. In Australia, the mouthpiece of the bit is called a "chew bit" or a "chew bone," while in the United States, it is known as a "bit," and is often referred to as a "jawbit." In Canada, the mouthpiece is called a "chew bone" and the bit is referred to as a "chew bone bit."
The first doobie bit was invented in 1899 by English dog trainer George Miller. Miller originally began training dogs by attaching a short piece of wire or rope to a dog's harness and allowing him to bite and hold the rope. In 1899, Miller developed a similar tool by attaching a short piece of wire to a long, thin piece of wire. This was attached to a leather strap, which was attached to a leather harness. The bit was designed to fit into a dog's mouth and allow him to bite a rope or other item placed in his mouth. This tool was referred to as a "dog and bone" and it was a common practice to use a dog and bone while training a dog to do tricks.
However, the first patented doobie bit was designed by English dog trainer J.E. Taylor and patented in 1902. The patent claimed that his invention was specifically designed to fit into a dog's mouth to assist him in retrieving game or holding other items, such as a stick, in his mouth while walking. The patented design included a leather strap, leather jaw piece, and an integral metal jaw. The jaw was designed to fit between the dog's lower jaw and upper jaw and was meant to prevent the dog's jaw from falling open while holding the bit in his mouth. Taylor's bit was the first bit invented specifically to fit into a dog's mouth, and it was used successfully for several years.
While the first doobie bit was primarily used to train dogs to perform tricks, it was also commonly used to hold small items, such as keys and pencils, between a dog's teeth while walking. This was commonly referred to as "holding the jaw bone." When a dog was trained to retrieve items, it was common to use a jawbone on a chain to keep the jaw from opening while the dog held the item. In the 1920s, a popular type of doobie bit was the "fetch bone," which was originally a small stick that had been attached to a chain.
Modern doobie bits
In the 1920s, a popular type of doobie bit was the "fetch bone," which was originally a small stick that had been attached to a chain. These were sometimes referred to as fetch bones because they were used to train dogs to retrieve items. Later, the fetch bone was modified and changed into a small piece of wood that had been attached to a chain. The fetch bone was eventually replaced by a different type of doobie bit, the "retriever's bone." The retriever's bone was designed to hold small objects, such as a ball, in a dog's mouth while walking. It included an integral metal jaw that prevented the dog's jaw from opening while holding the bone. The retriever's bone was first sold in the 1930s, and it was the first modern doobie bit to become commercially successful. It is still one of the most popular types of doobie bit today.
Another type of doobie bit was invented by American dog trainer Frank Cundiff in the late 1950s. Cundiff designed a doobie bit that included an integral metal jaw and a mouthpiece made of plastic. Cundiff's doobie bit allowed him to better control his dog's jaw while training and holding small items. Cundiff's bit was the first doobie bit to be mass-produced and made commercially available. It was originally referred to as a "jawbone," but the name was changed to "jawbit" in the late 1960s to distinguish it from the "retriever's bone." Today, it is referred to as a "jawbit" in the United States, while in Canada it is called a "chew bone bit." In the United Kingdom, it is referred to as a "chew bone," and is often called a "chew bit" in Australia. In all of these countries, the mouthpiece of a doobie bit is commonly called a "chew bone" or "chew bit" regardless of the shape of the mouthpiece, but in Canada the jaw itself is called a "chew bone" regardless of the shape of the jaw.
Another type of doobie bit was invented by British dog trainer Roy Sanderson in the early 1970s
