Benefits of Dog Agility
Social Dogs don't just want to play - they want to play with us. By inspiring interactive fun, dog agility nurtures the relationship between dogs and their pet parents, fulfilling the dog's need for social connection.
Agility challenges your dog's I.Q. by presenting a variety of obstacles. To successfully work through the course, dogs must differentiate between their handler's commands while using their natural problem-solving skill.
Dog agility fulfills many natural dog instincts. In the pursuit of food, primitive dogs would encounter a variety of obstacles. Jumping over rocks, climbing hills, and weaving through trees were just normal parts of capturing prey. By mimicking these hunting and chasing scenarios, dog agility satisfies the modern dog's instinctual drives.
It's important to promote your dog's physical health and wellbeing. Because it provides an outlet for natural canine instincts, agility encourages healthy exercise while also boosting doggie I.Q. Plus, it helps you get exercise, too.
Until about 9 months of age, a dog's bones, muscles and joints are still developing. At this time, jumps should be kept very low to avoid putting stress on your puppy's growing body. Depending on the size and breed of your dog, the developmental stage may be longer - so check with your veterinarian before raising the hoop jump. Obstacles should be altered for dogs with back problems and breeds that are prone to back issues. Along with lowering jumps, you can put more space in between weave poles to avoid putting undue stress on your dog's back.
