Competitive dog sports (CDS) are an intense, competitive form of dog training that involves an athlete competing against others in a series of dog agility competitions.
The dogs compete to outdo one another in agility and other agility-related sports.
Although the sport originated in France and is closely associated with the French elite, it has been gaining popularity in the United States.
The National Kennel Club (KNCC) says the sport has reached its peak in the U.S. in the last decade, with more than 10 million dogs competing in dog agility events in the country.
However, according to KennelWatch, which tracks the sport, dog owners in the US are becoming increasingly aware of CDS and are increasingly concerned about its safety.
“There are dogs who are killed in dog competitions who were not necessarily participating in competitions.
They were not being tested or screened.
They just happened to get into a competition,” said Kennel Watch founder and CEO Nancy Davenport.
“They were not properly trained, they weren’t properly tested and they got into the competitions.”
In the U, KennelWorld estimates that more than 6.5 million dogs are competing in agility events annually, with a total of more than 17 million dogs participating in the sport annually.
According to the National Kennels Club, the sport can cause serious injury or death in competition.
According, the dog owners who are most concerned about CDS are dog trainers.
In the Kennel World rankings, only 5 percent of owners who participate in CDS have been certified, and a staggering 19 percent are not qualified to participate.
“People are looking at this and saying, ‘My dog is going to be at risk if I let my dog compete against another dog,'” Daven.
“It’s something that needs to be looked at.”
KennelEye, the online database of breeders, offers more information on the subject.
The website offers a detailed list of canine health concerns and can be used to research your dog’s health, such as blood pressure and diabetes.
In addition, the website lists conditions that can be considered in dogs who participate and the types of tests that can and should be performed on them.
The database also contains information on other canine health issues, including whether dogs can be trained to work with humans and whether their health is compromised by certain conditions.
Dog owners can also find information about CHS-related health issues such as health problems and disabilities.
Kennelwatch’s website is updated regularly with articles about canine health and safety, and there is an online questionnaire to help dog owners find the most current information about the sport.
The online questionnaire is also an excellent resource for those who are looking to learn more about the dangers of CCS and want to take steps to protect their dogs from the sport before it reaches mainstream.
“Dog owners need their dog to be safe,” said Davenpaul.
“CDS needs to go mainstream.
It’s something you can’t really control.”
