So this is what I came up with when I decided to teach my neighbor's dog, Anne something new, but for those who don't know I guess I should explain why I'm training my neighbor's dog, lol.

Anne belongs to a neighbor who lives just up the street. I have known Anne since she was born, (accidental litter between their Chi and a stray dog. They did learn and got both the mother and Anne fixed). They kept Anne out of the litter of 4 and rehomed the rest. Once Anne and her siblings were 4 weeks old her owners would regularly let me take the pups and mom to my house for as long as I wanted. Even though her siblings are gone and she is now 4 years old this tradition has continued, she will come running over to my house in the morning, come in and hang out the entire day, then I let her out as it gets on toward dark and she runs home for the night. She and her mom rarely missed a day in the whole time that I've known them, sadly after over 5 years with Molly, (Anne's mother) she passed away. :( Anyways, hopefully that explains everything. :) One day I started working with her, and now 4 years later, she has learned over 20 tricks and commands.

On to what I originally posted for. xD

So I was looking for something new to teach her and decided to teach her to weave poles. I don't have any poles and since this is just something I'm doing for fun, I didn't want to buy any either, so when my little brother heard what I wanted, he already knew just what to do! About 10mins later I had the perfect set of poles made out of Knex. (Thanks little brother!) :clap2:

Very creative! That was a nice thing for you brother to do. I have yet to figure out poles for Chester, who is medium size.
If you happen to have a box of Knex, then you will be in business. ;)

Thin pvc tubing from Home Depot cut into suitable,lengths and shoved into the ground. If you do it after the rain or cut one end into a point, they go in easier. You can get fancy with the pvc if you want to and have the tools.

Great indoor hack with the knex though!
