Get involved in a dog sport this summer

Now that the weather is getting nicer, and the days are lasting longer you’ll find there is a lot more time to do more fun things with your dog.

Getting involved in a dog sport is great fun, and can keep both of you fit at the same time. There are lots of dog sports out there to try such as agility, fylball, Rally-O, heelwork to music, you just need to find the right one for you and your dog.

It doesn’t matter what breed you have, or what size your dog is, any dog can excel in a dog sport if you both put the effort into it! There are lots of have a go events at fun dog shows if you're not sure which sport to try, and you can always sit in at a class to see if this sport is for you.

When you first try out a dog sport, don’t rush things. Dogs learn at different speeds and the environment may be initially overwhelming for your dog to focus in. Don’t worry about what everyone else’s dogs are doing, just focus on small goals to reach for yourself and your dog.

Our dog Zuko recently got into fly ball. He’s just turned 6 and started the sport when he was 5, so as long as your dog is healthy there really is no age limit of when to get involved in a sport. Each week we take Zuko to fly ball practice he improves loads, we all love the excitement and adrenaline when doing a fly ball run and we are hoping to start competing in the sport soon too!

Doing a sport with your dog will strengthen your bond together, and will get you doing something different in the week than your usual routine. So what are you waiting for? Get involved in a dog sport this summer!

Here is a video of one of our dogs competing at the European Flyball Competition!
