Targets are useful for teaching contacts, distance work, and a variety of other agility skills. An improvement over the old Alley-Oop target, this Freestanding Target can be used for many purposes and will work on almost any surface without falling over. After the dog's nose touches the foam “ball” at the top of the target, the weighted base rocks the target back to the vertical position. The Freestanding Target has an adjustable rod that telescopes from 7" to 23" high. The rod is removable from the 4" diameter base for convenient storage.
