With the help of both my boyfriend and my father, I constructed a brand new agility ladder last night. I primarily made it because we need new, simple obstacles to use in the non-competitive agility class that I teach, but I am pleasantly surprised at how Marge has taken to it, too. It took her about two minutes to figure out what to do with it, and I think if I use it on grass, it could be a good workout for her legs (perhaps if I make it higher, also?). This makes me want to keep it, and transport it each week to class for use there.
You can find the plans that I used for it here. It cost me about $20 to make, and the only tool I needed was a saw to cut the PVC (that's where my dad came in). You can glue the pieces together, too, using PVC cement, but I haven't done so yet and don't really think it's necessary because mine is staying together just fine.
I'm not really crazy about her using it on the concrete, but I didn't want to move it to the grass solely to make this video. I think it was fine for a couple of reps.
What do you think? Does it look like she likes it?
