Agility is an awesome sport, but buying equipment can be a bit daunting. But, if you’re training your own dog and you can’t get to the training center daily, or don’t have the yard to training in, having your own portable agility equipment is important for keeping your dog sharp.

Most agility equipment is bulky and heavy. You can’t set them up or break them down easily. This is why it’s important to have portable equipment that is lightweight, easy to set up and tear down, and can be placed into a closet at home when not in use.

The following are the best portable agility equipment I could find for the money.
