Dog obedience training helps to create a well-mannered, happy and confident canine. Some people, however, take it even further and enter obedience trials, where they direct their dogs to perform certain exercises. One of these exercises are dog obedience jumps. With these jumps, the dog moves from the handler in the direction the handler indicates, jumps as directed, and then recalls when prompted.
Dog obedience jumps can be fun for both the handler and for the dog... but always check with your vet first: dogs who participate in these types of sports should be in good health to help minimize the risk of injury.
