My last post was on Christmas Eve, so first of all, Happy New Year! Taking some time off the website has really done me good. I still don’t want to force myself to write, and I haven’t figured out when it’ll be best to post, but at least I’ve recovered my appreciation for the website.
Today I’d like to talk about one the Christmas presents I got: the Agility Fun & Sport Set. I’ve wanted to enroll Nix in Agility classes for a while, but my class schedule made it difficult because I had to wake up very early in the morning two days a week, and most classes are either late at night or early in the morning.
So, the Three Wise Men thought it would be nice for me to have the Agility Fun & Sport Set. This is a set of agility obstacles consisting of:
- A set of slalom poles
- One jumping hurdle
- A jumping hoop
- A tunnel
It sells for around €70. As far as I know, it is only sold at Zooplus. Unfortunately, not all Zooplus regional shops have the set, although the items can be purchased invidually. I’ve found the set in the Spanish and French version of the shop.
So far, I’ve only tried it once, but I’m extremely happy with the results. To begin with, the equipment is extremely portable (within reason) as everything, including the jumping hoop, can be easily disassembled and stored in bags, taking very little space.
Secondly, although all of the elements are made of plastic, the ones that need to be fixed on the floor have metallic, pointy ends so they can be easily set up. Moreover, since they are made of plastic, overall they are pretty light and easy to carry around, although this could be a disadvantage if it’s very windy.
Honestly, I don’t know if they will last very long, but so far I’m very impressed. €70 for a set of agility obstacles which can be carried around relatively easily and can be stored taking up little space seems a very reasonable price.
You can see below a video of Nix on her first attempts at dealing with the obstacles. She seemed to enjoy them, as long as there was food. The jumping hurdle was the easiest for her.
