Dogs who know how to do weave poles tend weave either by single tracking or hopping.
Dogs that single track go through the poles using their front feet individually as they go through the poles. Dogs that hop, well….they hop! They use both feet and alternate hopping back and forth between the poles.
Of course then there are the littlest dogs who just run around the poles.
This page shows dogs that are single tracking. It also talks about how to help train them.
I’ve searched for pictures of dogs hopping through weave poles but have been unable to locate one. If you know of one, let me know please. 🙂
Any method is fine for getting through the poles as long as the dog is able to be consistent the whole way through on a consistent basis. Some prefer to train their dogs to single step, other trainers prefer to let their dog choose how they will negotiate this object.
This page talks abit about how to go about figuring out how to train weave poles.
