Each agility hurdle cone is 18" tall and has 5 hole placements for different jump heights. The pole can be set at 3", 6", 9", 12", or 15" depending on the training application and size of the dog. You can also lay the cones on the ground so that the poles are raised just slightly off the ground. The poles are 36" long.
Use a lower height (half of your dog's hock height) for cavaletti work, which is excellent for strengthening your dog's hind limbs, forelimbs, and core muscles. It also helps improve body awareness (proprioception), lengthens gait, and teaches collected balance. Besides getting stronger, the dog learns to use all four of his legs in an efficient and coordinated manner, which helps with the dog's footwork in all facets of agility. To do this type of cavaletti training and conditioning, it is recommended that you use a minimum of 6 cavalettis (the maximum number is 12 cavalettis).
We have also included higher heights on these hurdle cones so they can be used to make training jumps for the backyard.
Note: Made from tough, high-impact polyethylene, these cones offer good visibility, economy, and durability if properly cared for (fading and cracking will occur if these cones are left out in the sun all the time).
Packaging: You receive 8 hurdle cones and 4 jump bars so you have 4 complete hurdles/cavalettis.
