CT Girl, I am sure our paths will cross. We are not far away from each other. I hope you have a great trip this week. It sounds like you have a good start on your equipment. You will find having weaves to be really important. To get good weaves you have to do it everyday. I think it is one of the most "un-natural" things we ask our dogs to do in agility. After all, dogs in the wild will climb over things, crawl under things, jump over things, but run down a line of perfectly aligned trees in a forest by zig zagging back and forth! Really?

I wanted to share what my amazing DH is building - a metal A-frame :-D We've researched these and found it quite expensive to buy/ship a ready made obstacle ($600 on up). We'll probably have less than $200 in the whole piece. So far he has the metal frame built and covered in plywood. Now he needs to finish the slats, paint, and add the chains and it will be ready for use - can't wait for spring!!! If anyone would like plans just let me know - once it is finished I'll post pictures.

Next up.... dog walk frame and our agility club was resurfacing their equipment and gave me the skins - woo hoo!!!

The A-frame is ready and we just got 6" of snow and more on the way so for now it stays in the barn - my DH and DS did an awesome job!!!

We've been using channel weaves in class and the ones I purchased are regular only so DH and I built a set tonight from Instant Agility. These were very easy to put together - just search Instant Agility channel weaves in case anyone would like the plans.

Hopefully dog walk bases and a nice spring thaw coming up soon :-)

Dog walk is about ready to go - we used plans from the yahoo group - Agility Equipment and it was really easy to put together. We now need to glue everything and decide on hinges for boards. Once it is all together I'll add pictures. If anyone wants the plans just let me know.
