Dog Agility Weave Pole Training using A-Style Poles

We are always interested in new ideas in training agility dogs to help them be safe and perform with better style.

This way of teaching the weave poles is new to us, but maybe you have seen it used with success before.

The A Style Weaves technique is being used in an attempt to teach this dog how to weave with a lower head position. We have seen the same concept using ropes on the weave poles but felt that technique could cause injury.

This small change can help the dog negotiate the weaves faster as well as safer with less strain to the neck and back.

We wanted to see if it made changes for this team and viewed runs before and after the training and it did indeed make a noticeable difference.

We are going to continue looking into this method and if you agree that it looks like a helpful technique be sure to LIKE.
