Dog agility competitions include a timely race, where dogs navigate a series of 15-20 obstacles, including tire jumping, weaving poles, tunnels and seesaw. Dogs are judged on the ability to overcome those obstacles as perfectly as possible.
Owners must work, too, they have to keep up their dogs as they go through the course and promote their dogs with gestures and commands.
Think of flyball dogs as dog relay riders. Each dog in the team must run down a 50-foot lane, jump over four obstacles and push a balloon box to drop a tennis ball and catch it. Then, they raced back to the starting line with the ball so the latter dog could walk. Which team wins the fastest.
This is a sport for dogs who like to catch flying saucers and owners love to throw them. Disc Dogs Team competitions come in two categories: one is a long throw, in which you throw a dog disc and your dog catches it, earning points for a disc stuck in midair or at a distance. The other is freedom in which your dog performs tricks and dances with multiple discs in a routine that is choreographed into music.
Think of treibball (literally a push ball) as a cattle rancher, but instead of sheep, your dog is controlling large rubber balls.
Dogs have seven minutes to push eight yoga or fitness balls into the target using their nose or shoulders while taking cues from their owners. Afterwards, they must lie down in front of goal.
Dog skateboarding is like a short cross-country skiing race, you are on the skateboard when your furry family member (or a group of three dogs) pulls you along. You have to be a good skier, and while any size dog can compete, a dog over 35 pounds will be better able to pull you along the trail.
Surf competitions for dogs
Surf competitions for dogs are just beaches in Haiti or large lakes, where your dog can hang ten on a board and ride the wave to shore. Dogs are judged by their technique (whether they are sitting or standing on a board), their confidence and their ability to stay on the surfboard.
Next, move to a beach to ride the small waves. When your dog feels more comfortable on the surfboard, your dog can begin to stand up, lie down, turn around and ride it towards later, Mark said, Markwardt, are all allowed in surfing events.
