I'd be interested in a few of the fun agility skills for a puppy. I think Duke likes working with me. As far as equipment, maybe a beginners list, a few easy pieces would do. Can we make the equipment or is it mostly purchased?
I made my own, some beginner things we used in class (which I replicated at home):
ladder: make a ladder out of pvc pipe, lay ladder flat on ground. This is to teach the dog to be aware of his BACK legs. treat/reward when dog steps between the rungs. as you progress, you can raise it a little at a time.
hoop: get a standard hula-hoop. a block of wood, and a couple small metal clasps. secure the hoop to the block. the block serves as a base & the clamps hold the hoop upright. teach your dog to go through the hoop. (first, introduce the hoop, and treat/reward when your dog interacts with it, so he knows it's not a "monster". lol….)
plank of wood: lay plank on ground to start, teach your dog to "walk the plank". raise it little by little over time.
tippy board: get a large sheet of cheap plywood. screw a tennis ball to the center. flip the board over, so ball in on the bottom (on ground) this creates a "tippy board". teach dog to TOUCH and get used to the tipping motion.
small jumps: a broom handle on the ground to start. teach dog to step over. slowly raise the bar, little by little to create small jumps.
weave poles: use small plastic cones. line them up and teach your dog to manuever through them.
Also, what is OB 1 & 2?
Obedience levels 1 & 2. I clicker trained my dog, and at the school I use levels 1 & 2 are a prerequisite to taking advance obedience/pre-agility. Your dog should have a good understanding of commands when starting agility. (hand signals are helpful)
The TOUCH command is great, as ciarasmom stated. I played "touch races" with my dog to reinforce "touch" and to get him used to running WITH me to a certain location. put one lid at both ends of a hallway. start at one end. pump your dog up (ready… ready... ok! GO TOUCH! ...) you race to the opposite lid, dog touches, gets rewarded, and do it again in the other direction.
