Ask a question about this product

The Practice Tire Jump is the perfect way to prepare your dog for agility competitions! The 3 inch thick foam sections connect to form a 24 inch competition diameter hoop opening. The tire is attached to the frame by flexi-cords, that you can adjust to any height by simply sliding it up or down. This jump is simple to put together (no tools required). We also provide colored tape and instructions on how to decorate the tire. The lightweight design makes it very easy to setup and move around. It comes with it's own carrying case, so taking it with you on the road or to the park is a snap!

Teaching your pet to jump through the ring might seem a bit difficult at first, but with the training guide in the jump kit, you will have your pet leaping through the tire in no time. This is one of the premier dog agility tools and will make a wonderful additiion to your obstacle course.

How high should I set the tire?

You will need to first determine how high your dog can jump. Don't force your dog to jump an unreasonable height. If you don't already know, read the following sections.

Measuring your dog

Measure your dog from the ground to the top of its "withers" (shoulders). This is the highest point at the nape of the neck where the bottom of the neck meets the back. Then measure it from the side using a yardstick or measuring tape.
