One of the newest methods
to training the weave
poles that is gaining in popularity is the "channel method", in which two parallel
rows of weave poles are put side by side, but offset in such a way that the dog has a
center "channel" to run down. At first your
dog is not weaving (just getting a treat by running through to the other
end). But by slowly bringing the poles closer together,
inch-by-inch, your dog will begin to weave without him even knowing it! When all poles are eventually brought fully
together it is a
straight line of poles, and if you are patient and don't rush the channel process,
your dog will come to "understand" weaving and be less apt to miss
poles in the future!
Specifications: The poles are 36" tall, spaced
24" apart, and 1" thick. The same distance between the poles is
used for all size dogs. The poles rotate on their own fixture, allowing for infinite adjustments, but are
not so loose to be pushed out of place.
