1. Evaluate your dog’s capability. As you start thinking about what obstacles you want to set up in your course, consider your dog’s capability. Make sure plan obstacles that are appropriate for your dog’s size. A corgi, for example, could not get through a tire jump meant for a German shepherd. Also consider any limited ability your dog has. If your dog has back problems, for example, they may be able to easily get up and down an A-frame, but may not be able to complete a weave pole exercise. Do not try to force a dog beyond its ability. Some dogs may not be able to do certain obstacles, and all dogs will have to train up from easier to more challenging courses.
2. Build contact obstacles. Contact obstacles typically include A-frames and see-saws. A-frames have your dog run up one side and immediately down the other of a wooden, A-shaped obstacle. It is generally easier and safer for your pet to purchase a ready-built contact obstacles, but you can make your own A-frame from wood or aluminum. Instructions can be found online. For see-saw obstacles, you may buy a purpose-built agility see-saw or you can use one meant for toddlers or small children.
3. Plan a tire jump. Tire jumps are easily adjustable if you have different sized dogs, and are typically found in many competitive agility courses. These are tires suspended by ropes to a wooden frame. According to USDAA regulations, tire jumps must have an interior opening of 20 inches (50.8 cm), and the tire itself must have a 4 inch (10.16 cm) wall. Tire jumps are generally purchased whole from agility equipment retailers, as while you can build one yourself, professionally manufactured jumps tend to be more secure and less likely to hurt your pet if they miss the jump. Setting up tire jumps is generally a simple process that at most involves you connecting the tire to the suspending agents, but more often just involves placing the frame.

1. Ensure Success. Unlike behaviors such as Leave It or Come, agility is just for fun. There’s no need to stress over how quickly your dog learns these new skills.
2. Increase Attention. Agility is a team sport. Without guidance from his handler, a dog doesn’t know which obstacle to take next while running around the course.
3. Teach Tricks. Tricks let you improve training techniques like your timing and the placement of rewards. Plus, they increase your dog’s coordination and confidence which will help in the agility ring.
