Weave Pole Training at Home or in a Park

Can You Ever Get Enough Weave Pole Training in Class?

Absolutely not.  We must have access to our own weave poles either for backyard use or taking to a park.  Weave pole training requires many hours of practice on a consistent basis.  Hopefully your instructor has an extra set outside of the class ring with guides so you can come early and warm up your agility sport dog.  Even so, you still need some practice during the rest of the week between classes.

You Can Get Some Good Weave Pole Training With Inexpensive Poles and Guides.

For home and travel weave pole training, you can manage with some lightweight poles that have a spike coming out the bottom to push into the soil.  They don’t damage lawns, and only once in a while will you find the soil too hard.  They come with a strip of webbing with grommet holes spaced and just the right distance. Add to that some clip on guide wires and you’re good to practice anywhere you want.
