When mine give out, maybe I'll replace them with what you have.<g> Mine were PERFECT for startng a puppy, because they have a couple of screen "windows" that make the tunnel bright and inviting inside. But if you are working to solve a "tunnel problem" I can see how you'd want something closer to a "real" agility tunnel.
The next 2 things I want to purchase are a triple bar and a chute. I'd love to get them from Max 200, because they are the best in terms of quality, but they are really expensive!!! I also need to complete my set of weaves. I've got a set of 6 Max 200 2x2 poles which I love, but the other 6 are cheap-o PVC ones. I really want to get another set of 2x2's from Max 200 to have the whole set of 12. 'Course, THEN I'd LOVE to have a whole set of contacts...
Well, nuts, I had a post all typed out and hit the wrong key and away it went!
I like the tunnels I got, a lot. The length is easily maneuverable, and so is the weight, but yet can put together and get more of a 'real' agility length. And, so far at least, they seem very sturdy. Karen, I was really taken aback at the price of this stuff when I was checking into it. I could not believe how expensive it all is. And then, after we got ours, I pulled out of agility for the time being. Too many things going on and I wasn't giving quality time to either Agility or Rally or Finn. But I thought we could still work on some of the agility things when we had the time, and when the weather is nicer, so I have room to put it up outside. My house certainly is not large enough.
I think I did buy a chute??
at the same time I bought the tunnels - but I have no idea what I did with it. Probably put it away somewhere when it was my turn to host coffee, so I could get it out of my living room! Maybe I am 'losing it'!!
I am sure it is not of the quality you are talking about. I would like some weave poles too. I had rebar positioned in the ground with PVC pipe over it and plastic open fencing attached as a guide. But we couldn't mow well around it so eventually took it up. I would like something easier to set up and take down. Finn is over a year now so he can do this stuff too. I really need to work with Augie (when I have time) on a moveable board. Last summer, he ran amok out in the field where we were training - I am sure he saw all that space and couldn't help himself - and he went on the teeter and scared himself. I have a big enough yard where I could have set this stuff up; but I landscaped it before I knew I wanted dogs - it really isn't all that dog friendly!
