10 Tips to Practice Agility at Home with Your Dog

3 hours ago

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.
4. Develop Flexibility. According to Spooner, tricks that increase a dog’s flexibility are great for agility training. Spin gets your dog twirling right or left and stretching his sides.
5. Work on Handling. So much of what happens on the agility course depends on how well an owner handles his or her dog. That includes sending a dog out in front, moving him from one side to the other, or having him work at a distance.
6. Increase Body Awareness. Surprisingly, dogs don’t have stellar body awareness. Where their front paws lead, the rest of them sort of follows. But with obstacles like the dog walk, your dog needs to be aware of exactly where he’s placing each paw.
7. Build Confidence With Moving Objects. One of the scariest obstacles for a novice agility dog is the seesaw (or teeter). It seems stable to your dog until he starts to climb.
8. Conquer Fear of the Dark. Some dogs have no problem running through a tunnel the first time they see one. But many dogs are intimidated by the dark opening.
9. Jump for Joy. Jumping is a critical agility skill and an easy one to practice at home. Use a broomstick or other pole and balance it between two low objects like a stack of books or flower pots.
10. Introduce the Weave Poles. The weave poles are probably the most challenging obstacle to teach, and there are many different training approaches, so you’ll likely need expert guidance to help your dog master this skill.

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.
4. Plan your weave poles. Weave poles are a set of narrow plastic poles set closely together so that your dog can quickly weave their body between each pole. Each course should have five to twelve poles with approximately two feet (0.6 meters) between each pole. Weave poles should be sturdy enough that they can withstand your dog running in between them, but not so sturdy that they won't bend or fall if your dog does not weave perfectly. Weave poles should not be driven far into the ground, as this cause them to become more rigid and subsequently poses an increased risk of injury for your dog. You can make your own weave poles by setting one inch (2.5 cm) diameter PVC pipe in along a pipe base. Use tee pipe connectors to join the upright poles to the base. You can also purchase safe and sturdy weave poles from a manufacturer.

1. Weave poles. Weave poles can be created by sticking 10 to 15 ski poles or PVC pipe into the ground. Allow enough space in between each pole so that your dog can safely navigate around each pole.
2. Dogwalk. Use a picnic bench as a dogwalk or construct one by placing a 12-foot piece of plywood across 2 cinderblocks.
3. Standard jumps. Standard jumps can be created by stacking cinderblocks on top of one another and placing strips of plywood on top. Depending on the height of your dog, adjust the height of the jumps appropriately.
4. Pause table. An old coffee table can be used as an agility course pause table. Look for one that sits low to the ground and make sure that it is stable.
5. Tunnel. A plastic collapsible children’s tunnel can be purchased from a department store and will make a perfect obstacle for your dog to crawl through.
6. Tire jump. An old bike or car tire can be strung from a sturdy tree branch to create a tire jump for your course. Make sure that the opening is large enough for your dog to safely jump through.
7. Teeter boards. Teeter boards can be built with a long piece of wood and some PVC pipe. Mix an antiskid additive with paint and cover the entire board. This will provide your dog with more traction as he walks across the board.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I get my dog into agility?

An old bike or car tire can be strung from a sturdy tree branch to create a tire jump for your course. Make sure that the opening is large enough for your dog to safely jump through. Hold onto the tire while initially training your dog to jump through it.

What is the optimal age for an agility dog to be?

Dogs that compete in agility training normally do so between the ages of 1 and 2 years old. Young dogs could injure themselves when jumping hurdles, so it is best to consult with your veterinarian to work out if and when your dog is ready to try jumping.

Is agility a good activity for your dog?

Agility provides good exercise. Some dogs require lots of exercise to burn excess energy, and running through an obstacle course is a great way to do just that. The athletic challenge keeps a dog fit, helps prevent obesity, increases endurance, and strengthens bones and joints.

What to expect at a canine agility class?

What to Expect at a Dog Agility Class. Canine agility classes can strengthen the bond between a dog and his handler by establishing a certain level of respect between the two. This training also keeps your pet in good physical condition, which can extend his life.
