    77 - Enjoy weave poles together

    77 - Enjoy weave poles together

    Panic not. This exercise is not part of focused agility work that needs you to learn some specific body posture in order to train your dog. It is simply a fun way to help him extend his focus and learn another new skill while flexing his body and gaining freedom of movement through his ribs.

    1. Wait until sunset and take your weave poles to a gorgeous beach. (If you do not live near a beautiful beach, your garden will do just fine.)

    2. Set them in a line and teach your dog to negotiate the poles while on a leash.

    3. Then hold a treat in the hand that is nearest to the poles and ask your dog to follow your hand.

    Give him regular treats while he is learning the exercise. Remember to work in both directions and make sure that you are not blocking his path by leaning over or standing in front of your dog.

    Start by negotiating the poles together, with your dog on the leash
