When Clip and Go Agility creates a new product, their main goal is to make items safer and perform better. The Clearway Weave Pole Guides do just that. The guides are custom extruded using a ribbon of transparent UV-stable PVC plastic, and there are no sharp edges anywhere. The attachment clip is a screw-together two-piece clip that is easy to attach to your poles.

The Clearway Guides offer side-to-side flexibility so the dog is safe if he's hitting them as he goes through, yet they are very stable vertically. This means no more sagging wires! 

Each guide is 56" long, creating enough room for all dogs to learn to do great weave poles.

Using the guide wires for the first time requires assembly.

Note: These guides fit all of the weave poles we sell and any weave poles made out of Schedule 40 3/4" PVC. If you are not sure whether your weave poles are made from Schedule 40 3/4" PVC, you can measure the outside diameter of your poles. Despite its name, 3/4" schedule 40 pipe has an outside diameter of approximately 1-1/16" (1.050").

Packaging:

  • Set for 6 weave poles—everything you need for 6 weave poles (4 guides)
  • Set for 12 weave poles—everything you need for 12 weave poles (10 guides)

Very nice, but seem a bit short
I love the design and that they do not sag. I have Rat Terriers and I wish these were just a little bit longer. All of my previous small dogs have hopped through the weaves and these are short enough that my dogs have to single step to avoid bumping into the guides. Because of their body size they seem to have trouble maintaining this pattern through twelve poles.

The BEST guide wires
This is my fifth set of guide wires, I keep changing brands with each new set. First were the ones from MAD agility (no longer sold), they became brittle within a year or two out in the elements. Next was a set that claimed to be able to withstand the weather, and perhaps they could, but the wires were floppy and just sagged to the ground, the complete opposite of their exact purpose! Next was a DIY set where you cut a PVC pipe and attached some narrow water line tubing. These were a bit difficult to get on and off and were also more flimsy than I liked. Fourth was a set I got off eBay or Etsy. They were also difficult to get on an off, but the bigger concern for me was their size. They were very substantial, with the tubing being nearly 1" in diameter. It seemed more like a jump bar than a guide. This Clip and Go set was my favorite as soon as I opened it! Sure, there's a bit of DIY to assemble the clips but that also allows one to tighten or loosen the clips to fit your weave pole diameter. I find they clip on and off very easily (maybe off too easily as the Beauceron I've been weave training has popped them off occasionally). I like that they're clear, though I'm not sure it makes a difference to the dogs. I don't know if they'll hold up in the weather though given how easily these go on-and-off, taking them in when not in use is not a chore like it was for the other sets. If you're shopping for guide wires, I definitely think you'll like these as much as I do!

Much Improved Design
I purchased the set of ten a few weeks ago. I widened the channel the first time I used them to familiarize the dogs with them. The dogs adjusted to them more easily than earlier (saggy) versions. I saw a similar product on the One Mind Dog site and searched for them after that. To help the dogs I used six poles and double wires and now am reducing the number of wires. I have also seen this style of wires only attached to one pole, because they are fairly rigid that is a possible adjustment once the dogs need less help. This is the third set of weave wires I have purchased and the first set I don't regret buying.

Consider buying a second set
These work well but some dogs jump over them because they are not enough of a barrier. They aren't too expensive so you might want to purchase two sets and connect one set high and the other lower. If you have problems with dogs jumping over them, you might also consider using pet gates instead of these.
Comment from Clean Run Thanks for your feedback. As trainers, we do feel that a dog who is jumping out of the guide wires does not understand the job or cannot physically do the job. It's like a dog who doesn't understand to go through the tire rather than between the tire and the frame. We prefer to go back to basics rather than creating a barricade where the dog cannot leave the weave poles because when he leaves the weave poles, he is giving you information. If we're using channel poles and adding the wires, then we would re-open the channels to the easiest setting and gradually close them to allow the dog to get used to the guides. If you're using 2x2s, go back to just one pair and shape the dog to go through the guides. Move the guides to different heights until the dog under stands that they are part of the obstacle.
