What dog sports are there?
Mental work, exercise, coordination, education and, above all, fun: in the field of dog sports, there is something for every dog. The innate instincts of our beloved dogs usually remain intact despite good training. That's why dog sports are the perfect way to challenge your dog. But what disciplines are there in the field of dog sports?
Teamwork during agility training
One of the fastest dog sports is agility - in addition to agility, fitness and endurance, it also requires real teamwork between two and four-legged friends. On a parkour, your dog has to overcome a wide variety of obstacles one after the other, quickly and without mistakes: Hoops, hurdles, stairs, slalom and much more. It is not only the dog's dexterity that is required, but also the communication and relationship between dog and human.
Equipped with a clicker and a belt bag full of treats, you can start training in the best possible way.
Obedience - Obedience and Social Compatibility
Obedience training focuses on precise cooperation between human and pet. With the help of acoustic and visual signals, the dog is shown what to do by its master or mistress: From basic commands such as "sit" or "down" to the specific retrieval of objects. Obedience encourages communication with your dog and challenges your dog's mind. Use a noisy dog training article - it will help you train and keep your dog focused on you.
Fast-paced flyball competition
3, 2, 1 - go! In the flyball competition, two dogs start against each other on a parkour and have to overcome hurdles to get to a ball-throwing machine. Once there, they activate the machine so that a ball flies out, turn around, catch the ball and return to their owner. Dog harnesses help you to quickly re-leash your pet after his run when it gets busy at the start and finish line.
Connected with each other at the Canicross
In canicross, four- and two-legged friends run together through the terrain and are connected with a leash. It is important that the leash is flexible. For example, you can use a jogging leash. Practical are those that you can wear as a belt around your waist, so you have your hands free. Alternatively, you can connect the leash and collar with a shock damper so that your dog is flexibly attached to the leash and a sudden pull is not directly transmitted.
Canicross keeps people and dogs fit and promises lots of fun, as it involves tackling kilometres of uneven cross-country trails.
