Familiarize yourself with the racetrack
At this time, the “working” time of professional Racing Dogs usually starts from early afternoon. To warm up for the main race in the evening, each group of dogs must go into warm-up training. One of those exercises is to swim in the moat.
Next is a lap exercise in a roundabout with fake prey controlled by a dog center staff member. Fake prey runs very quickly, attracting dogs to follow.
In order to give the dog a gentle stride on the track, the training ground is pumped with water to increase drag, forcing the dog to drive at full speed. Not only does the dog run alone, the dogs also have to run in pairs to get used to the feeling of racing with the opponent.
