How do I use competition weaves?

The Competition Weave Poles are a common agility obstacle in which your dog weaves a path through the poles, entering to the right of the first pole.

Weave Pole training basics:

  • Your dog must always enter on the *right* side of the first pole.
  • If your dog ever "pops" out of a pole (skips one) then you should take some steps backwards, and spread the poles back out a little.
  • Its best to keep the whole process extended over the course of a few weeks.
  • Practice for short periods of time each day, as to not overwhelm or tire your dog.
  • Give rewards and positive reinforcement.
  • Keep training 'light' and fun!
