Default A-Frame Question

I have one question I was hoping someone whose been involved in agility could help answer. I'm just working through foundation type stuff with Duke at the moment but I'm just moving along through our workbook and am getting ready to start making some actual equipment.

I would like to make a portable A-frame, and have found one article on the Do It Yourself Network and am just wondering if anyone has any recommendations/ warnings/ advice on the matter.

The finished product based on following the article makes an A-frame with each panel being 8' long by 3' wide. I'd like to change it to 4' long by 3' wide, so that I can easily bring this smaller A-frame with me, to play agility at my friend's property which is much bigger. I'm just wondering if that's going to be too short for Duke to really be able to maneuver over and properly get into a 2 on/2 off type contact position, so just wondering what everyone thinks.

I will eventually go for some lessons where he can work on a proper sized A-frame, but I thought a smaller A-frame, as long as it's big enough for him to maneuver on would be ok for now.

Thanks for any input,
