So, we are still trying to find ways to keep up with our super energetic and smart puppy. This morning, she and my son spent almost an hour running around, over and through our neighborhood playground. Who knew a dog would love going down (and up) slides?

That got me thinking how great it would be to have things in the backyard that they could crawl through, slide down, etc, when the playground is not available. Are there dog versions that can be taken down and stored when needed? What about the hurdles and tunnels people use for agility training? Anyone have experience with those at home?

Here is a link to making your own equipment using pvc pipes. I've also used hulla hoops for teaching dogs to jump through, if you have a place to hang a tire you can use that as well for jumping, you can get those tunnels that are for kids, which I believe are a lot cheaper that work great. There are also lots of books out there on agility.
