With A-Frames ranging from $500 bucks to $1,000 or more I figured I would save some cash, have some fun, and build my dog an Agility A-Frame to practice on!
On the following pages, you'll see that it's actually quite easy to do, and yes, I am 100% confident it will hold my dog's weight, then again, my dog weighs 16lbs... If at any point you want it stronger, modify the plans as you see fit. I've had a 70 lbs German Shepard use the frame and I've also climbed it myself as a test. This thing is a beast and is pretty heavy.
Also keep in mind this is a practice frame. Regulation frames are 9 foot per side, these plans are only 8 foot. The rest of the dimensions are to rules so it's a reasonable practice setup.
