Dog sports, apart from being a great pastime, help to settle the dog-owner relationship and give the dog a task.
All living things produce energy that is necessary for life support and everyday life. But dogs live in a way of life next to us in which they do not use these energies, so they accumulate.
They don’t have to hunt for food, they don’t have to defend their territory most of the time, and in many cases their reproduction doesn’t depend on their ability to defeat their rivals.
In the past, there was a function for each species, and they really earned their daily bread! But today, life for urban dogs is a bit like a luxury prison. These missing functions are what canine sports are trying to fill!
Coordinated, group work, “collective action”, led by the dominant individual – in this case the master – is one of the most important parts of a dog’s life.
It doesn’t matter (of course, it’s advisable to do it according to the dog’s temperament) what sport you choose, just do it!
The range of lifestyle programmes is almost endless. But they all have two things in common. Without a good lifestyle programme, there is no happy dog and a good lifestyle programme is enjoyed by both dog and owner, as is the well-deserved rest afterwards.
