View Full Version : Garden agility

2nd May 2008, 11:03 AM
We have created a simple agility course in the backyard - bought children's garden toys and changed them into agility tools. The tunnel was only for sale together with a tent and a tipi, so now Molly can sleep in her own garden tent ;)
We are not planning on agility competitions, it is just for fun at home - and the total amount of the agility course was about £32 - a cheap way to keep Molly fit and happy.
After a long day of playing in the garden she loves to sleep on her red flip-over.

looks like Molly is loving every minute :)
I think I have a tent like that in the attic,I might just steal your idea and make an agillity spot in our garden:) I know Elja would love it since she loves to jump and run :)

That's a super set up you have there for Molly and may I say " plenty of room for another Cavalier in there too!!" :D
Great pics - you've inspired me :shock: :badgrin:

Fabulous idea! We have purchased some of the jumps and they are not cheap. I only wish we had a backyard as you do to keep the equipment up. We live in a condo and have to trek it down the street to the field behind the pool/clubhouse. But it is worth it isn't it; just great to have them good and tired and know how healthy the exercise is for them.
I think we'll give some of your ideas a try too, thanks for inspiring me too!

I've made 2 jumps out of pvc pipe for about $30 at home depot.. wish i would have got to menards since they are cheaper.

I forgot to say that that's a great course, I really wish I could find a tunnel like that for Maverick. I love how tired she is.
