It is very easy and cheap to make the jumps from plywood. I will look up the place that gives the plans and then put it up here. In the US we have much more colorful fun names like full throttle, ball haulers, etc. That makes for great graphic logos and t-shirts for the team. Go for it

Money can be a problem. You may have to charge dues or an initiation fee for your members and have fund raisers (dog washes, dog training classes, etc) to get the initial capital funds. If you have friends or family who like power tools, it can really help cut down on the cost to make the jumps out of plywood, the baby gates out of netting or PVC pipe, and we even had a team member make us a box. It still was about $300 for the materials, but that's better than $1000 + shipping.

Trolling forums and email distribution groups for used equipment can also help get you over the hurdle of zero equipment, and, as you get more established, you trade up for better equipment.

Good luck and have fun!

Hi there, not meaning to put you off but I don't think you should be looking to start agility or flyball until the dogs are around 12 months as their bones/joints won't be fully developed and you risk damaging them... In the meantime I'm sure you can pick up lots of tips here such as pre-training exercises depending on which route you decide to go donw with them
