It is compact and stores easily when not in use, unlike professional agility equipment. It is simple to set up and easy to use. It's fun - my dog took to it right away and we have a great time training and running around with it. It lets us practice some basic agility commands and showed me that my dog LOVES the idea of agility. Oh, and even my 65lb lab likes to take a run through the tunnel once in awhile.
Well, you get what you pay for, right? One run through the tunnel, and there are little holes from my dogs nails everywhere on it (she's 45lbs remember). The tunnel is quite short (compared to professional ones)and a very thin material, but other than the cosmetic damage from her nails, I think it will still hold up for use. None of the materials are very sturdy or strong, but I haven't had any huge fall-throughs yet in the 5-6 times we've used it. The weave poles and the tunnel are the only two things I really like to use...sure, maybe if I had kids they could use the ribbons and such, but they aren't of much use to me.
OVERALL: I'm happy with the purchase! I hoped it would be a little sturdier and challenging, but at least now I know that agility is something my dog and I can have fun doing seriously, so now we can look into purchasing/building some more intense obstacles and joining a club. If you're looking to have some fun with your dog and not being too serious, then this is perfect! If you are looking to get this because you just bought a Border Collie and you want he/she to be an agility star, then I would recommend skipping this and heading straight to a training ring.
There is no cheap way to start training your pet for agility. But you can save money by buying PVC piping to build a variety of jumps, by sawing off the bottom of an old plastic trashcan to create a short, but sturdy tunnel, and by using a flat wooden bench to create a table or "pause box." The best way to start agility is to join a training club or class led by a knowledgeable instructor who has their own high quality equipment.
If you have money to burn and a small dog that you want to introduce agility to this may be for you. If you have experience in agility or a bigger dog you may want to invest in more heavy duty equipment.
It's winter here and the ground is frozen, so I did not try the other items.
