Ok, I've got someone who is willing to weld me a dog walk base and I need some specs for it lol. On NADAC's site I've found that the ramps are supposed to be 11'6"-12' long but how long is the "runway" or the top straight part? Anything else about how to build a competition style dog walk and any other contact equipment would be greatly appreciated Thanks!
Ok, another question, what is the best surface to have on the boards thats not too expensive? Would roll on truck bed liner be okay, or is that too rough? I've looked at painting, then putting sand, then painting again but is that really worth it? And what about outdoor carpet? Thanks
I would not put outdoor carpet or astroturf on a dog walk. I'd just do the paint/sand/paint/sand/paint/polyurethane since it's not something I'd want to redo every year. Time consuming but cheaper and more durable in the long run.
There is grit which you can mix into the paint itself to save time but I can't tell you how well it works.
The less-cheap option is the DIY rubber stuff. A dog walk surface is about $100 I believe.
