Re: Weave Poles

I use the weave o matic method with a little channel mixed in. I think that it helps when the dogs see them straight up.
Tang weaves VERY low to the ground, like a border collie.

I am not set on any method as long at the are taught correctly, without having the dog look at you. The dog should enter and exit looking the same way, straight ahead!

Marisa (GSDmom) I can't believe you got 2 humans and 12 dogs into that avatar photo!

And Tang is a crazy weaver, do you have and video on youtube to show that?

<3 Channel Weaves.

I've tried the V, Channels, and Weave-o-matics. Despise the last ones, and Strauss just demolishes the V setup, so Channels were the way to go :-)

Don't think I'll ever teach weaves any other way ^_^

Re: Weave Poles

I've been having the most luck using channels. It is helping him considerably with speed and accuracy and giving us both a well need confidence boost on the obstacle.

Here are the links to some of my favorite trial photos of him. I am a very proud mommie 8) We still are struggling with weave pole perfomance but we are getting there. I have a trial this weekend so I will keep my fingers crossed that the weave poles gods will be kind to us

Re: Weave Poles

Now now Fast GSD, you don't think I'm gonna let you get away with just posting the links!

Come on, bite the bullet, figure out how to post photos here! He's a good looking dog and we need to see him right away (I'm all into the 'instant gratification'). Takes me WAY longer to go look somewhere else!

Heck, I make my friends take digitals of me at trials, and even had to break down and buy a Canon Powershot so I could share!

Re: Weave Poles

So it's time to teach my youngster about weaving, and I want to get a set of channel weaves. Therez 2 options:
1. cheap PVC things with a "swivel" base, about $80 - $100 for a set of 12
2. expensive metal base things, minimum $250 for a set of 12

Is there ANY hope that the cheap PVC things can work with our fast drivey dogs? or do I just resign myself to spending the big bucks on the metal deals?

I can imagine Suka would destroy the PVC things; heck, as it is she nearly destroyed a set of competition poles at a trial, she entered so hard - judges are always having to reset the weaves after Suka gets through with them. My youngster doesn't have a clue yet, so I don't know how hard he'll be on poles.
