I have been training 2 dogs for agility for many years, and finally decided to buy a set of weave poles. These are very nice, and sturdy enough for my 85 lb. dog. HOWEVER, Chewy should let customers know what products are imported from China, and nowhere in the description did I see this. I prefer not to buy Chinese products, and would not have purchased the set if I had known that. I was under the impression that a product had to be notated if it were imported.
It packs up into a nylon duffle which is nice for transpoting it. Nice for training as you can easily adjust it. There are tent stakes to hold it down. I would probably not use on a powerful, high drive dog as they could snap the poles. However, for training my newer dog and my older one that needs to pick up speed, these are ideal.
This item is higher quality than I expected. Thick base, light weight, and flexible rather than brittle. Poles do not warp. Travel bag is sturdy and has a lengthwise zipper. Very good for gradual training of weaves indoors. Exactly what I needed.
I'm very happy with the weave poles! They are exactly as pictured and described and seem very sturdy. They are an excellent choice for home training weave poles. I have a 27 lb Miniature American Shepherd that is a beginner and these weave poles work well for him. I would recommend them as practice weave poles. Chewy always ships fast and they came well packaged. They are lightweight and I like the carrying case for easy transport.
I got these to use in a fundamentals agility I am teaching. They were affordable, easy to use and multifunctional for teaching weaves for handlers and dogs. The base standards are plastic and assembled with plastic rivets, which may fail with heavy use. If that happens I think they could be repaired with other hardware. So far so good in class, and I have suggested them for home practice to some of my more serious students.
This product is great for introductory education! Also for in house use on a long non skid rug.
We are just starting out agility and this set is perfect to practice at home. Seems like nice quality but the grass stakes are missing and there was no instructions included either.
These are OK for basic training, slow dogs, or dogs learning with the channel weave method. However if you have a dog who does weaves fast, you'll need to upgrade. Dogs can push the weaves and get stuck and the movement is not ideal for training. If you intend to compete in agility, look for a more sturdy set, with a metal base.
Love them! Easy to set up. Easy to regulate the size of the weaves. Nice carrying case
Stella and Jack are in Agility class. We were told to study and practice weave poles at home between classes in order to progress. I looked around for weave poles. I decided to order this set, because it was the best price, yet appeared solid and something I could manage. Indeed, they are lightweight enough for me to manage, yet sturdy enough for our practice at home. I like the easy assembly, disassembly, and storage bag. Great product!
