You and you dog will LOVE it if you can find a club!
I've used both weave pole methods with our dogs and the 2 X 2's are far more reliable, IMHO.
Here is a great page by Clean Run Magazine that shows you how: https://www.cleanrun.com/index.cfm?f...ategory_id=457
Here is a site on how to make them: DIY: Build Your own 2×2 Agility Weave Poles - Ammo the Dachshund
Here is where to get parts for DYI: Clip and Go Agility - PVC Fittings
Good luck and have FUN!

Someone posted on the forum about a trainer in our area in a random thread, we looked him up & decided to call him and he's been great. Lots of "networking" opportunity from this contact alone.|

There is a way to do it called either the channel method or the 2x2 method. They're pretty much the same thing. Look that up and since you already have an older dog that probably has some obedience I'm sure it will take you about a month of work to teach your dog how to properly weave.|

|GSDLuverForever||Haha! I guess I look around for one nearby. Although, where I live there will probably little to no classes. Maybe I'll be lucky in my search. Wish me luck!|

I have an eight year old GSD. She is energetic and loves to learn. I was wondering if she could do agility, not competitions though, just for fun! I have done some jumps with her and she seems to love it. She has the command for jumps down. What about weaving through poles? She doesn't do that well. Any training recommendations? By the way, I'm training her at home and building my own obstacles.
