Jade- so much to do,- so little time

"Jade" here from Australia. With the tyre obstacle, if you are able to place it on it's side and then lead the dog through it that way, building up it's confidence. We have 2 types here, 1 has a square support around the tyre, the other is a free standing tyre. If you can't put it on it's side, then start at a lower height, and try to leave the dog on one side, and you go to the other side and encourage the dog through with food, toy, etc.
I agree about the tunnel, whether it's the cloth tunnel or 'bendy' tunnel you're talking about. Scrunch it up, then leave the dog in a 'stay' at one end, then go to the other end and call the dog through, increasing the length as you go each time, or as the dog understands the exercise.
