Clear the Decks!

Make sure your dog has enough take off and landing room for hurdles and contacts, especially! Your dog should have at least three strides before a jump, and at least three after. If you don’t ‘clear the decks’, so to speak, your dog could strain themselves jumping before they’re prepared, or crash into something after the jump.

  1. My dog LOVES to use playgrounds as her “training” grounds! She LOVES tire swings (she’ll actually ride on them) as well on merry go rounds. She loves to climb stairs and/or platforms to get on the slides! Sometimes if she’s wearing no traction boots she’ll literally slide down (and she LOVES it!)
    Great picture!!
