I keep getting questions on how I teach weaves... Well, with the good old channel (no wires/guides), of course! I just love channel, it gives me everything I want from my dogs' weaves - and it's just so much fun.
For me, weaves are the easiest obstacle to train: you just do some silly things while the dog is running through the channel to teach independence and throw the toy at the end, how hard is that? Time consuming? Well, that's why I'm in agility! - I like to spend time playing with my dogs! 🙂 Who cares if they get it in 10 or 20 sessions? We're having fun - so I don't even care to count it!
Here is a video of Bono and Gabi, my Puppy and Foundation class students, having fun with the weaves - and the greatest thing is that Gabi never did agility before and yet she succeeded to get THAT - pretty cool weaves huh?
