Our agility training is coming along fine. Last week we started to learn the weave poles. One of the hardest obstacles to learn, so our teacher recommended setting up a set at home. I chose to work with the slanted poles, also know as weave-a-matic poles. Idea being that the poles start laying on the ground and you gradually raise the angles until the poles are straight up. Here is a video of Scout working on the poles about half way up.

The other methods are channel poles that are always vertical but spaced apart to make a channel and then start to close the channel over time, and the poles set up with the standard straight line. Hopefully he will get this all figured out over the next few weeks.
