Agility: Table and Weave Obstacles

Table (or Pause Table) : An elevated square platform about 3-feet-by-3-feet square onto which the dog must jump and pause, either sitting or in a down position, for a designated period of time, which is counted out by the judge, usually about 5 seconds. The height ranges from about 8 to 30 inches depending on the dog’s height and sponsoring organization.

Weave Poles: Similar to a slalom, this obstacle is a series of 6 to 12 upright poles, each about 3 feet tall and spaced about 20 inches apart, through which the dog weaves. The dog must always enter with the first pole to his left, and must not skip poles. For many dogs, weave poles are the most difficult obstacles to master.
