Check out Shyeow's links Richie. She not only shows the steps she shows how to make all the equipment for your home to practice with. She did an incredible job of making it all easy in my opinion. I will find you the links now.
i am still looking for the link on making the equipment..but check out her blog anyway. There is a wealth of information and fun right there on this topic.:D i go there just for a little mini vacation a lot of the time!;)

there is so much more on her blog..i would check it out for a grand beginning guide to the sport and a tribute to her community and how they have built up the interest there.;)

Another forum member has the site i have posted before that had wonderful training ideas, and i found this there..

Now i am getting excited to start this as the weather turns warmer. We have enough land in my yard to set up a good rpractice course. maybe we can compare notes as we go along. Anything that keeps Victor active both in his mind and body is a good idea. He wants to work and he wants to learn as well. I wish you luck with Cooper for i know he is the same;)

The main thing to learn in agility is focus first. Once you've got your dog fully focused on you then you can get started on equipment. You learn other things like shoulder work ect. The dog follows the movement of your shoulders while running the coarse.
