I love looking at these pictures! I'm new to the Agility world...been preparing my pup with some of our own home made equipment as well as using the play toys at the park. I'll surely be contributing to the photos soon enough.

Travis_s_Mommy, can't wait to see your photos when you start posting them. And I challenge EVERYONE to 'think outside of the box' when coming up with these 'agility' shots. Cause new experiences and opportunities are available everywhere, we just need to recognize them and take advantage!

Maybe I am the only one who does not have ready access to "real" agility training. All that I have done with my dogs I have trained on my own on the "equipment" that I have shown here.

Are their any pieces of equipment I have not covered? If so please let me know as I love the challenge of finding something comparable!!

Amaruq, I have to say, your photos have been very helpful. Made me realize what other things I had access to that would be helpful in training [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/01_smile.gif[/img]

Couple more from me and the pest.

Pause Table:

Slide (Yeah, I know there's no slide in agility. But it is still a good confidence booster):

Jumps (was a bit too wide so she jumped onto it instead of just over):

I knew if I looked long enough I could find weave poles. KC thinks the regular weave poles look pretty simple so she created a way to make them harder. She carries a huge stick as she runs through them. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/33_rofl.gif[/img]



These are some more slide steps. Yet another surface and a steeper angle.



A couple more slide pictures.

Some more from me. Proof that you don't have to have expensive equipment to start agility. Unfortunately, we need a bigger living room as we can only fit two jumps and a tunnel in our course. Cavalettes (sp?) are made from soda bottles and a wrapping paper roll and Swiffer handle. Tunnel is one of those kid tunnels and it's held in place by a milk jug filled with water. I have a hula hoop as a tire jump too but nothing to hold it in place yet.

Ris going through the tunnel. She was a bit confused that I didn't follow her to give her instruction upon her exit (I said "Over" but she's not good at distance working yet). At least you can see she's focusing on me. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/03_wink.gif[/img]

Watch out Jamie, pretty soon your Living room will JUST be an agility course. The couch and TV will be crammed into the bedroom........ [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/34_rotflmao.gif[/img]
