Take your pick at a tunnel or funky weave poles!



I did try to get her to walk across the top of the tree (which had equal number of brances/weave poles, however, a certain comrade with her tried to do that and it was too risky to have Phoenix try.

I don't have a picture (never a camera around when you need one), but this fall, my 10 month old female Morgan jumped on the sill of the bay window. I was raking leaves and looked up to see her standing among the plants. I made a gesture for her to get off, which she did, by way of the dining room table. Agility is in her future!

Since the host took away my other pictures I will repost them.....

I found where I had stashed these pictures.

Play ground equipment is excellent for footing, different surfaces and confidence.





Newer pictures of the same concept.





For the life of me I can't figure out how kids are suppose to use this (even before the handle came off the far side).





And coming down steps from the slide (even thought KC usually would come down the "normal kid way" on this the red swirly slide.



Benches and bleachers work wonders for dog walks. I find it ironic that as much time as my dogs run across the wooden and metal bleachers I do not have any pictures of it. I do have them standing on the bleachers somewhere but not sure where those are hosted. Bleachers are also cool as you can work at varying heights. Start on the low one and work your way to having them move across the top one with confidence.



This is another great confidence booster. It is hard to tell but this car is on one of the really big springs which causes it to move all over the place even when they are sitting.



Since there is not formal agility training around here I have to be resourceful in maintaining confidence and fun in whatever way I can. I still think it would be awesome to have a "MacGyver" agility match using whatever you can find.

Just running full speed in the woods is great practice for weave poles. Not to mention slick footing with mud, rocks, leaves, pine needles and brances/sticks......

OK now did I miss anything?

I use playground equipment, also. There are so many neat playgrounds these days, with platforms and suspension bridges. My Malinois will even run down the slide. When it comes to obstacles, she's fearless, people, OTOH, that's another story.
