6-pole weave practice

This is Marvin and I in our basement practicing weaves.

One weekend I got creative with PVC and made weave poles and a jump following a really great do-it-yourself link I found online. So now we can practice whenever we want to. I have enough PVC to build a 12-pole set but I don't have enough basement ... that is unless I get serious about cleaning the basement. So we'll stick with our six poles for now!

I also have enough PVC (and enough basement) to build a second jump so hopefully we'll be doing two-jump drills soon.

Marvin, you do a great job on the poles! Bella went to an intro to Agility class last fall. We aren't as dedicated as you to keep up in the winter. Momma is going to wait till spring to get out our agility toys.
Enjoy and keep up the great work!

That's good Marvin! I have a pvc weaving poles too but when I go fast, it collapses. I'm a rough weaver sometimes, kekeke!

Pee/s: I've added your blog to my links becoz I think your bloggy is kewl & I like making friends who enjoy doing the same stuff like I do for example, agility!

Love licks,

Marvin!
I didn't know you had a dog blog!
I think I was in your beginner agility class last year. I was the class clown, the Irish Terrier with like zero attention span. Do you remember me?
I was going to take beginner again this month, but my girl forgot to sign me up in time.
I see you've really been practicing, huh? Way to go!
Woof,
Keeley
