Clean Run and Clip and Go have been testing tunnels from US and overseas manufacturers for more than two years. Because of their good footing for the dogs, quality of the fabric, overall durability, and ability to keep their “roundness” when other tunnels started becoming egg-shaped, we have chosen to import Naylor tunnels from the UK for our customers.
The medium-weight training tunnels are 23-5/8" in diameter with a 6" pitch. The supporting 3mm spring steel wires are heat-welded in place and enclosed by a heat-bonded thick PVC scuff strip extrusion. There is a heavy-weight ring enclosed in PVC at each tunnel opening to provide additional structural integrity.
These tunnels are made from the same heavy-duty 18oz/ft PVC fabric (610gsm) that our competition tunnels are made from. The material is flexible, durable, and provides excellent traction (the fabric is more "rubbery" feeling than in US tunnels).
We refer to them as training tunnels because not all organizations in the US allow 6" pitch tunnels to be used in competition. In addition, the Medium-Weight Tunnels are made using 3mm steel wires whereas our Heavy-Weight Competition Tunnels are made using 3.86mm wires.
The 23-5/8"-diameter, 6"-pitch tunnel is 4 meters (13.12 feet) long and weighs 35 lbs.
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. Any other items you order will be shipped separately from the Clean Run offices. Please allow up to 2 weeks for delivery.
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 of the tunnel. Tunnels should be stored away from extreme heat conditions. Temperatures over 120 degrees or below zero should be avoided.
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.
