BigD Posted June 28, 2005 Report Share Posted June 28, 2005 Ok, this is a silly question but I screwed up the other day. I FINALLY got both my dogs to weave (!!!) but the poles I'm using are little 1/2" PVC poles stuck in the ground and only 24" high. They were fine at first, but now that the dogs are plowing through them they are starting to shift and crack. So, I went out and got 5/8" X 18" metal stakes with the intention of hammering them in the ground and then sliding 1" X 40" PVC over the top. I bought the PVC and the stakes before I double checked the size of standard PVC poles which is 3/4". Duh. Now, PVC is not that much money and I could use the 40' of 1" PVC I bought for jumps...but would there be any harm in using 1" vs. 3/4" PVC poles for weaves? The 3/4" will fit VERY tight on the stakes, the 1" will wobble a little bit. I'm thinking it will be better for the poles to be tight anyway. Just curious. Buddy is 50lbs and he BLOWS through them (a problem until he learns more control) so I want something that is pretty sturdy, but I don't want him to get into a trial and go "oh...these are not the same thickness that I use at home...what do I do!!??" You know what I mean! Denise Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
