Backyard agility course

I got stuff to make a jump and some weave poles for the backyard. This is my project for the week. I'm really excited. If CErbie enjoys them, which I'm sure he will, I'll add a tire jump, and probably some more stuff that I'm capable of making. I'll post some pics of the building process too, I told Cerb he could help.

thats great I am sure he will enjoy it. my husband has made all my agility equipment. we have 2 bar jumps, a tire jump, weave poles, and a teeter. next spring I want to add more weave poles (I have 6 right now) and a pause table. If I had the room I would love to have an a-frame.

Could you put a pic up of the teeter? I'm toying with how to make one of those. I'm not too sure.

Sounds like a fun project! I've tried to do it here, but seriously we live in an area where the ground is hard as heck, I want Junior to have something soft to land on, and actually be able to stick the weave poles in the ground! Maybe someday.....

Post up pics if possible, I'm sure it'll turn out great!

I'll have to borrow my sister's camera, mine mysteriously died on me. I'm really excited. When I build things I tend to go overboard, so I'm trying to just take it easy.

I built my iguana a cage, and it turned out about the size of a walk in closet! SHe really likes it....well, he really likes it, but he has a girl name bc we didn't know when we got him.

I used plans that I found online I didnt carpet the board like the plans said instead I painted it and added that anti skid stuff to the paint.
Build Your Own Agility Course: Teeter Board
Instructions below to build the "Teeter Board" agility course
What you need
• 8 1” 90° elbows
• 6 1” T’s
• 4 2 ¼ “ PVC

• 9 12” PVC
• 1 10” 1¼”pipe
• 1 board 2x10
• 2 plumbers straps 6” long
• Assorted screws
• Screw driver
• 1 piece Astroturf or indoor/outdoor carpeting to cover the board
Building the Teeter Board

2i. This is the start of the base of the rocker for the teeter board. You need four of these rocker bases. Take 1 T, insert small pipe 2 ¼” and elbow on one end of the T. Repeat three more times. These will make up the base.

2iii. The rocker base in the right position

2v. The rocker base completed
Take 4 12” pipes insert in the tips of the framework.
Take a 12” pipe and attach to each end of the completed framework.

4. Complete the framework by attaching the two remaining ends to the frame. Fit this apparatus around the pivot pipe.

5. Teeter board covered. Take the carpet and lay it over the board, secure it down with screws, cut to fit and attach screws to keep the carpet tight.
Your Teeter Board for dog's agility course is now complete.
