Does anyone know where to get reasonable priced agility equipment. I think Oakley ( although far too young yet) will enjoy it. He absolutley adores the tunnel and could run through one all day. I have a small 2 foot one but would like to get weave poles etc.

Anyone seen any bargains?

That's so weird I was just looking this up. At home we have a field...it would be ideal to have the equipment!

We built our own jumps and weaves out of PVC plastic plumbing pipes. It's very inexpensive to build your own. We didn't have any plans/patterns either; we worked from photographs and I looked up the regulations on the AKC, CPE, and USDAA association websites. They have complete descriptions of the equipment measurements, etc.

We bought 4 children's tunnels on sale. While you can't curve the tunnels, it's still good for practice.

Then my hubby built us an agility seesaw. It turned out so well that he built a second, better one and he sold it to the dog training place we like.

Here are some photos:

That's fantastic. Was thinking of dropping into local hardware store and using my imagination.
