It's Easy To Learn
High jump - Adjust the jump to an appropriate height for your dog. Show your dog a treat and guide him over the bar, using verbal commands such as "jump" and "over." Offer treats, toys, and praise for successful jumps.
Open tunnel - start with the tunnel scrunched up to make it very short and less intimidating. Bait your dog through the tunnel with a treat, using the verbal command "tunnel." Once you've shown your dog that a treat is waiting at the other end of the tunnel, gradually extend it to full length.
Pause box - The pause box is meant to simulate the pause table in agility. Dogs are asked to lie on the table for a 5 second pause. Begin by treating your dog for having all four paws inside the box. Use a verbal command such as "table" or "box for this obstacle. Once your dog knows to stand inside the box boundaries, ask for a sit and stay inside the box before treating.
Weave poles - This is a difficult obstacle for most dogs to learn. Rather than putting the weave poles in a straight line, start by staggering them so there is plenty of room between each pole. Hold a treat in front of your dog, give the verbal command "weave," and guide your dog through the channel - treating at the end. Gradually make the channel smaller so that your dog has to weave through the poles.
Agility course - Once your dog is comfortable with each obstacle, start to combine two or more obstacles to make a course. Work on keeping your dog's attention as you direct him or her from one obstacle to the next. Remember to reward your dog at the end of each sequence.

Until about 9 months of age, a dog's bones, muscles, and joints are still developing. At this time, jumps should be kept very low to avoid putting stress on your puppy's growing body. Depending on the size and breed of your dog, the developmental stage may be longer. Check with your vet before raising the bar.
