How to make your own simple agility jumps

  • 2 – 10 foot 1″ PVC Schedule 40 (sturdier) poles (Clean Run or hardware store)
  • 6 – 1″ caps (Clean Run or hardware store)

I use a PVC cutter which you can find at most hardware stores or online ( or an electric saw if you have one.

Alternatively, if you can find someone at the store to help you, cut the 10 foot poles so that you can transport them easier in your car:

  • 1 pole cut into 2 3-foot pieces for the sides and 1 4-foot piece for the bottom of the jump
  • 1 pole cut into 1 4-foot piece for the jump bar and 4 8-inch pieces for the legs, and keep the leftover pieces as emergency parts.

Also, you can buy the 5, 4 and 3-foot pieces pre-cut (but they are usually much more expensive).

Clip the jump cup strips on each side and slide to the bottom of the pole. Install the caps into each leg and top of each side bar of the jump.

That’s it. You now have 1 dog agility jump.

There are various options, for example, If you want to go the ultra portable and simple route, you can get one of these: Together with 1 set of agility jump cup strips, 2 3-foot pvc bars for the sides and 1 4-foot pvc bar for the jump bar.

I hope this guide gives you an idea to get you started.
