Cool Homemade agility...

DH made this today and here's the first attempt at training. The first few times he ran around it and DH had to jump it to get him to do it too.

Oh how neat, Ann . . . Scooter looks like a stuffed animal going over! Looks like he took right to it, too.

I think I would be hanging onto that man . . . making nice jumps for Scooter and talking to him like that . . . adorable!! I think I'll have to show it to my DH!

I mentioned this to my DH not too long ago and he wasn't exactly thrilled with the idea. Now I won't have to say anything - I'll just let him see it at the GA Playdate and let it be HIS idea IF Abby likes it.....lol

Scooter looks adorable flying over the bar with his little white boots!

I've been making agility equipment lately too and heres the place I've found with the best prices on the 4way tees which agility places sell for over 5 bucks a piece. I ordered some of the slip Tees to see if they would work for weave poles that tilt out but haven't gotten around to sticking them together yet.

To get fancy with colored tape you can buy colored electricians tape from Lowes or Home Depot but for stuff like the tire this place has some wide colored tape:

I bought these jump cups and made the jumps out of 3/4" PVC but used 1" for the jump poles.

3/4" PVC costs $1.54 per 10 foot piece at Home Depot. I used 1 1/4" for the tire jump frame.

What a great shot. We have tossing around the idea of doing some agility equipment in the back yard for the girls. Just to spice up their lives.

Blessings, Luna and the girls

Anne- He sure has springs and what a fun sweet DH!!! I made everything myself as my DH doesn't like to encourage equipment in the backyard but I admit I am bad at leaving it out all the time. You can often look out and see Dash and Belle on the mini A frame too. Looks like Scooter took to it very well. Just remember in AKC, most havs only jump 8 inches (unless they are over 11 inches at he whithers) so you don't have to make the jump very high

Thinking of adding a Neezer, check out this thread!

Look at Scooter go Wahoooo. I love the pictures Ann Scooter looks like he is having a ball.

Tom my husband had to make those cups because we could not find anything locally and it worked out real well. I like being able to take the bar off, there are times I want him to concentrate on his movement and not so much the actual jump.
