Dog's with jobs
#11
My daughter competes in agility with Tasha but there are a few people in our class that never intend to compete, they just want a fun activity with their dog and if you want to work on skills at home you don't need a bunch of expensive equipment.  

   

This is what we use to practice at the park (my yard isn't set up for practice).  A few jumps made of PVC pipe and pop-up laundry baskets.  In place of the laundry baskets you can also use cones or buckets from the hardware store (our go to on windy days).  Tasha is very high energy and a little agility practice makes her calm for the rest of the day.

I want to learn how to make some agility equipment but I haven't gotten to take a single agility class so I wouldn't know the proper way to use it much less how to make it LOL! One day I will get around to that Fenzi class....

It is too bad that you are on the other side of the country or I could bring my kid over to help you.   Big Grin   When we first started agility I was wondering how I would ever be able to afford all the expensive and heavy equipment.  Once we got further into agility I realized that getting your dog to follow the path of a course is the skill that is needed most so having a few jumps, hoops, and barrels is all we needed to train agility at home.  I did purchase a set of six weaves since my daughter's goal with Natasha was to compete and I didn't feel we could really learn weaves with a once a week class.
