More backyard agility

First, a question: does anyone have any suggestions for getting a dog motivated about weave poles? Lili will do them, but only under protest. They bore her! Seriously! Anything is more interesting to her--leaves falling, a gnat flying by, a passing cloud... She has a lot of trouble staying focused for a complete pass, and we're only working with a stretch of 6 poles at a crack. Should I try shortening the line to 4 or 5 poles and go from there? Find a better-tasting treat?

And now, down to the picture portion of this thread:

First, some pictures of Grace...
