Clean Run and Clip and Go have been testing tunnels from US and overseas manufacturers for many years. Because of their good footing for the dogs, quality of the fabric, overall durability, and ability to keep their "roundness," we have chosen to import Naylor tunnels from the UK for our customers.
This Naylor 6"-pitch agility tunnel is 23-5/8" in diameter and 3 meters (9.84 ft.) long. Not all US and Canadian agility organizations allow 6"-pitch tunnels at this time, so please check the most up-to-date rules if you are looking for a tunnel for competition. We provide the 6"-pitch tunnels as an option because they are much lighter to move than the 4"-pitch tunnels and offer cost savings for training at home.
The supporting 3.86mm spring steel wires are heat-welded in place and enclosed with a thick, heat-bonded PVC scuff strip extrusion. There is a heavy-duty, 14mm thick ring enclosed in PVC at each tunnel opening to provide additional structural integrity.
Naylor agility tunnels are made from heavy-duty UV-stabilized 18oz/ft PVC fabric (610gsm) that is flexible, durable, and provides excellent traction (the fabric is more "rubbery" feeling than in US-made tunnels). This is the same wire and fabric that is used for the Naylor 4" pitch heavyweight agility tunnels.

Important Shipping Notes: Naylor Tunnels are shipped directly from our warehouse in Michigan via UPS Ground. This item cannot be shipped by other carriers, and it cannot be shipped outside the U.S.
We offer a one-year warranty on Naylor Tunnels against defects in materials and workmanship. When you receive your tunnel, please inspect it carefully to make certain the tunnel is in satisfactory condition. If any problem needs to be addressed, we ask that you email our customer service team immediately and attach photos along with a description of the problem.
The warranty does NOT cover improper storage or care of the tunnel:
- Tunnels should be stored away from extreme temperature conditions; temperatures over 120 degrees or below zero should be avoided.
- Tunnels should be carried when moved, not dragged.
- If you are using metal tunnel holders, make sure there are no sharp edges that might damage the black PVC scuff strip extrusions that cover the wires.
Also, as with all agility equipment, it is best to avoid exposure to the sun when not in use. Prolonged exposure to the sun will shorten the lifespan of your tunnel.
