The third pole is blocked by the handler, so I am showing the third pole with a dotted line.
The handler is stepping in closer to the third pole with this right leg. This helps to guide Momo between poles 2 and 3 as shown by the small red arrow.
In short the technique is to step beside the first pole with your right foot, then away to the left with your left foot. Repeat this sequence for each pole. When using this foot work, you always position yourself on the left side of the weave poles and you dog on the right side.
Puppy Momo and Laughable Agility Set
Video. Next is a video showing Puppy Magic Momo Superdog at 5 months of age
going through a tunnel, over a jump and then through the weave poles. I use a leash and have to drop the leash when she goes through the tunnel and over the jump. Yes, the agility equipment is laughable and cheap, but it did help Momo learn, nevertheless.
Another Method -- Start with 2 Weave Poles
Another method, which I like even better than the method I used with Magic Momo, is a method that starts with just 2 weave poles.
