FlashPaws Flexible Offset Weave Poles

These PVC Weave poles using flexible conduit are 28" high, are offset 3" from each other. These 28"-high poles are offset 3" and are spaced 24" apart, so they are well-suited to those following the FlashPaws Offset Weave Pole Method. This method focuses on developing efficient footwork and head position while encouraging the dog to drive through the poles from the very start of training.

 

The poles can be used indoors or outside and can be broken into sections for ease of storage and transportation. Because the poles can be used easily indoors, you are likely to practice more often - especially when the weather makes it difficult to train outside.

Includes a supply of aluminum stakes for outdoor use. For indoor use, it is recommended that the poles be taped to the floor or a carpet runner. NOTE: Weave poles are not available for shipping. They must be picked up at our headquarters in Houston, TX, or we may be able to deliver them to you at an agility trial.

Training Ramp

This portable training ramp is great for practicing at home, and even on the road. The sand-painted ramp is 5 feet long and 12 inches wide, with a 6-inch ledge for resting it on a variety of "platforms" such as a pause table, outdoor deck, porch, or cinder block. Handlers with small dogs may find suitable "platforms" inside the house such as a sturdy ottoman, fireplace hearth, or a stack of phone books. It's portable enough to travel with you to shows so that you can practice finding and holding the 2-on/2-off position, as well as sending to plank approaches in your hotel parking lot. Try propping it on the tailgate of your minivan or SUV, or resting the ledge on a curb. If your dog does running contacts, you can use the ramp with a clicker to reinforce at the exact moment your dog hits the desired position. NOTE: Ramps are not available for shipping. They must be picked up at our headquarters in Houston, TX, or we may be able to deliver them to you at an agility trial.
