Dog sports and leisure activities

VGM6_Fotolia

Taking part in sporting activities together helps strengthen the bond between owner and dog. Success depends on understanding and responding to the dog’s abilities and enthusiasm. The owner/handler must constantly reassess the suitability of activities and adapt them where needed. Both handler and dog need to enjoy themselves to achieve good results, while for the more competitive owner and dog there are plenty of titles to be won, which can be recorded with the pedigree of purebred dogs.
