Teach your dog to weave poles two by two in this class. No need to take up valuable time in classes working on weave poles, when you can get help in your back yard. Focus on the weave poles for a few weeks, work through the steps, and have your dog weaving in less than a month.

Having weaving problems?

Starting over from the ground up can often expose holes you didn't even know about. Even experienced weavers can benefit from a ‘back to basics' session.

Ready to start your dog weaving?

As long as your dog is mentally AND physically ready for the demands of weaving, you are ready for this class! Dogs should be at least 10 months old, but since you're going to be teaching your dog to weave in four weeks or less, there's no need to really start until your dog is ~12 months old or so. Make sure your dog is READY to go from start to finish quickly, as we won't be spending much time on the intermediate steps. Weave pole training done properly goes quickly, so you and your dog will need to be prepared.

Topics

  • Week 1: Zone Clicking, Introducing the Poles & Introducing Correct Entry
  • Week 2: Learning Entries Around the Clock
  • Week 3: Adding Poles 3 and 4
  • Week 4: To infinity..and beyond! Or…to 6 poles and beyond.

Required Equipment & Space

2x2

  • You only need enough space for a set of six weave poles, with ~5′ before and after the poles. A 10'x20′ space is more than sufficient
  • You'll need three sets of two poles, which you'll need to be able to either weight or secure. Toward the end, if you can modify your sets of two poles to be four poles connected, and then six poles connected, that's even better (see video below for construction ideas, you don't need to spend a lot of $$ on this!!)

 

social You'll receive access to the Online Classroom Discussion Forum, where you can submit your homework for review from your instructor, and get feedback. You'll also get to view the work of your fellow students!

The Discussion Forum is also where you'll head for general discussion, support and FAQ, and more!
