Thanks Brandy, I had used one of the suppliers on the list (affordableagility) and they were really great. Very helpful and it looks like it'll all get here on time too!

You're very welcome! I've heard nothing but good things about affordable agility. Good luck with your training program.
If you're interested, down the road, in making some of your own jumps and weaves, Patios to Go has some great prices on PVC - I've used them for my jumps.

This is what I ordered so far, I have pretty much everything else - Have you seen the mini travel teeter?

5 Comp Tunnel Braces (much better than weighted bags)
Practice Tire Jump
Travel Jump Set
Fixed 6 Pole weave set
Weave Wires for 6 pole
Mini Travel Teeter

Hmmm can you cancel your order? If you are teaching weaves to beginners you likely won't want wires.

If you are doing beginner agility you will want a wobble board vs a teeter, maybe a few planks. Jumps are good But if the tunnel braces are more.. I would go with the bags.. if they are good enough for the nationals, I am sure they are fine for classes. Also (at least around here) dogs are more likely to see bags than braces.

As an aside I would spend extra money and get a good tunnel (http://www.ntiglobal.com/dogagility/cart.php?page=_) as tunnels are not something that stand up well when they are cheap.

I hope it works for you, personally, any pvc equipment that I've seen used for much more than backyard work doesn't seem to stand up to the heavy use and abuse of repeated training.

Seeing as I'm already working 60-70 hour weeks, I didn't jump out to offer the aluminum equipment I make, I suspect that unless someone REALLY wants something, it will be winter before I get back into the shop on that project.

The wires are for my assistant to take to her other facility. I do have a wobble board already and no planks, I'd have no where to store them.

The tunnel braces are so much cheaper than the bags that I looked at and since I have to put everything back into my truck after class, I didn't want to fuss with sand/homemade bags. I've got 2 good tunnels and one chute...the only equipment that I was happy with from my original order.

This equipment will get no where near the use that a full time agility facility would put it through. I'll let you know what it's like when it comes though...I'm so curious.
