Agility Equipment

Can any of you point me to a good place to purchase affordable agility training equipment, used or new?

I'm in Canada but I can have things shipped to a postbox in the US and pick up from there if needed.

Looking to spend as little as possible on a very basic set for the backyard.

Have you looked at Ren's Pets (renspets.com)? They are outside Toronto, but provide free shipping on order's over $60

Looks like Amazon is quite a bit cheaper...

Fortunately, I have free access to all the agility equipment I need at our training center, so I really had no idea if Ren's was expensive or not. They are usually have some of the best prices in the area. Good luck on your search.

You can make a lot of it. Jumps especially are easy. My husband also build weaving poles. Long tunnels are expensive, but worth spending to get a good one that won't tear.

I made jumps, weave poles, and a teeter from plans in this book:

Thank you all!

Yes, we too decided to just build our own. Was looking for a good guide, so thank you for sharing. I had not come upon that one.

Still figuring out how to make them easily collapsible because our hard is not big enough to keep even some of them up year-round.

I went to Home Depot, and bought some PVC pipes and made my jumps and weave polls out of those. You can make stick in the group weave polls. I also used the PVC and some wood to make a table. Until you have a real sea saw. You can get a long piece of wood and throw something under it to turn into a sea saw. Back yard agility! I bought two real tunnels, they are so heavy duty, have had mine for 9 years and still in great condition.

Where did you get your tunnels? I need to get one for Roxy next year.
