WTB Agility Starter Kit

I am looking for an agility starter kit for my 10 month old GSD. I need as inexpensive as possible. Thanks!

Have you found a place to train yet? Great instructor and classes will have the heavy and expensive equipment.

Truthfully, I am now the Queen of PVC and am amazed how easy the jumps are to put together with the right connectors. I don't even glue them and make them inside while I am watching tv!

Jumps, tunnel(s) and weavepoles are what we all need at home to start that are affordable. I get the tunnels from tinkertots.com, just make sure to get the 24" high ones because that's the standard for real agility and easier for our big dogs.

I got my tunnel at Toys R Us. Be sure and not jump your puppy too much. It can be hard on his elbows while he is still growing.
