    DefaultSpent the day making jumps

    10 of us from my advanced obedience class met today and made jumps for ourselves. The instructor had done a lot of pre-work for us and we had some unused house siding donated to us for the broad jumps. We each made a bar jump, a solid jump and a broad jump. We worked from 2pm to 7:30pm. Whew! It was pretty hot in that building too. Total cost for the 3 jumps - $38.00. The instructor said it was a labor of love for her - she really likes our class for some reason. I'm not sure what previous classes have been like, but I guess we all practice with our dogs more than she is used to. She says that we HAVE TO go on to open and utility now that we have spent all this time making jumps

    That's wonderful!* They should get lots of use.

    It's really very easy to make your own jumps.* I followed plans I found on the internet.* Although I like mine (they are pretty light) I like the design of my friend's jumps better. She uses stryofoam for her jumps (the uprights are still PVC).* Talk about light!* ;D

    Sounds like a productive day. I've made tons of agility jumps, but when it came to getting the obedience jumps I talked to Santa Claus and he got them from J&J Dog Supplies ;D

    I'll have to put them back together - all the parts that weren't glued fell apart when I fell last night while carrying them! Then I'll try to get some pics of Emilu jumping over them.
