Activity description
Particularly for high energy dogs, a rainy day can be a challenge. Not only do you want to keep your pup busy, but they have activity needs that must be met. Setting up agility activities inside your home is a great way to exercise your pup while both of you stay dry. You can start with some simple activities and increase the level of difficulty as your dog masters each challenge. You can then link agility activities together, creating your pup's very own agility course. Not only will your pup get the exercise they need, but you will be able to spend quality time together!
Step
1
Create the course
First, you will want to figure out what agility activities you would like to set up for your pooch. A simple one involves a hula hoop, where your dog will first walk through the hula hoop and you will then raise it higher and higher until they are jumping through it. You can also set up jumps with PVC pipe. Kiddie tunnels are also great for your dog to run in and out of. Check online for ideas and decide on a few activities that you think your pup would enjoy.
Step
2
Collect supplies
Once you have a few activities in mind, collect the items that you need to set up each activity. For example, if you are looking to create a jump for your pup, PVC pipe should be easy to come by at the local hardware store. You may even find that you have some of what you need for creating the agility activities in your home (or garage) already.
Step
3
Set up the challenge
Once you have the items that you need, you can set up your first agility activity. Make sure to start with the activity being as easy as possible for your pup. For example, if creating a jump, set it up low to the ground so that your pup can walk over it. You can then reward your dog for the successful effort with a treat and then raise the pipe slightly higher. It is important that you give your dog the time they need to master the activity before increasing the challenge, so that they don't get frustrated. Once your dog has successfully mastered an activity, you can move on to a second. As your pup develops their skills, you can connect multiple activities together into an agility course. Be sure to take things slow and meet your pup where they are at!
