Melissa98409 I am currently teaching my 13 month old GSD agility. SO MUCH FUN! Weaves seem to be every dogs achilles heel. My trainer has a great way to teach the weaves. She starts by breaking the poles down in to two pole sections and teaches the enterances first. Then she adds two poles at a time buy kind of separates them and puts them at an angle so that it looks like a straight opening to the dog and then gradually closes the gap between the poles until they are in a straight line. It has worked fantastic for my guy.

If you are using pet guide on your phone it doesn't show you which forum you are in.

My 15 months old also did the weaves!
We started practicing with the channel when he was about 12.5 months old and closed the channel when he was approx. 14/14.5. months old.
So once a week should be totally fine!

I don't know about the spine thing but anything and everything you can get your pooch into..especially things they enjoy...it's quality....the two of you are probably thriving and enjoying a bit of a team effort.

I'm still teaching my dog the zig zag gig.. dog walking between my legs as I walk....I might look into what you are doing....glad the two of you are enjoying it.
