If you had to choose 4 agility obstacles to start with what would you build?

A basic jump, a tunnel, a see-saw and weave polls?

4 jumps!

I would say jumps and weaves are the most important... If you have issues with the teeter, that may be something you need... tunnels are nice, but honestly, I have not used mine in years...

The one obstacle I could not live without? WEAVES!!!!

I got mine at NTI... Lasted a few years outside (in So Cal) and moved it into the garage eventually and it still looks like new. I don't use it very often anymore...

PS, I got an email from them that they are having a sale... I don't think a code is needed, but if needed, PM me and I can forward the email.

I built 2 jumps, a set of stick in the ground weave poles, pause table, and a teeter.

Yes, I have also gotten some of my equipment through NTI as well. I forgot about them! I think when I made my own jumps out of PVC, it only cost me about $30 per jump. I actually bought some jump heights from MAX 200 at a show and put those on my jumps.

I agree, multiple jumps are important, because there is so much that needs to be practiced with at least two to four basic jumps. Then I would say at least one tunnel, and weave polls. I think you can make your own sea saw out of wood lying around to get your dog used to walking on boards, and to unsteady things. It is key to get the dogs, especially goldens used to unsteady things. So if you don't get a sea saw, make sure to make something small yourself, or visit a friend who has one every so often.

Sorry, I meant which four different types? I think we will make at least 3 jumps. I've looked through so many plans and it looks like we'll go with PVC pipe-based stuff.

I will check out NTI for sure.

He's had practice on a BMX track and playground. He gets so excited that he just leaps off the top of obstacles, lol. So I just need to build them low...

I would make sure to have weaves, table, teeter for sure.

We DIY'ed weaves to learn in our backyard, I'd like a table now to fix our awful downs/slowness to table!

Looks like great instructions for DIY jumps as well, very similar to the ones I made a long time ago... Thanks!
