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. You need a minimum of 6 cavalettis for training and you can use up to 12 (even numbers only).
We have also included higher heights on these hurdle cones than are suitable for cavaletti so that the cones can be used to make training jumps for the backyard.
Packaging: You receive 6 hurdle cones and 3 jump bars so you have 3 complete hurdles/cavalettis. (Please note that we can fit up to 3 sets of cavaletti—9 hurdles—in the same box.)
