Dog Agility Supplies
When it comes to dog agility supplies, you have many choices. Here are some of the basics that you should think about including in your dog obstacle course equipment.
An adjustable hurdle is great because you can set it low to begin with allowing your dog to actually walk over it at the beginning. Once your dog gets used to crossing the hurdle you can slowly raise it up and add other dog agility supplies.
A pause square is nice because it can show how well your dog listens to your commands. A pause square can be bought but it is very easy to make your own.
Weave poles are probably the most exciting part of dog agility training, but it can also be the hardest to teach. Its always best just to use a few weaves poles at first and then add them as your dog gets the hang of it.
An open tunnel can be another hard part of the obstacle course to teach. ItÕs not natural for dogs to want to go into small spaces.
Start and Finish Line
Just like a real course, you should have start and finish lines so your dog gets used to crossing them.
Even if youÕre not training for competition a stopwatch can monitor your dogÕs progress.
Ribbons are not necessary but they are fun to have your dog jump through to get a sense of accomplishment, at least for us.
