Welcome!
Agility Dog Health Network
Your source for accurate, fact-based information on agility dog health!

The Agility Dog Health Network is a platform to encourage collaboration among individuals engaged in evidence-based discovery and innovation to enhance the health of dogs competing in canine agility and to disseminate that information to agility participants.

This site is the result of collaboration among a small group of experienced veterinary researchers who have developed a passion for agility. We quickly recognized that there is very little evidence-based research on which we can make health decisions specific for our agility dogs. A small number of individual researchers, scattered around the globe, are making valiant contributions to the effort as they work independently on specific projects but they are often limited by lack of access to information. Our goal is to develop a network of researchers, competitors, veterinary professionals, and others who will collaborate in the discovery dissemination of new information for the advancement of canine agility dog health.

Calling all agility competitors!

Please help us identify the canine health concerns of most significance to individuals participating with their dogs in agility events and how agility handlers prefer to obtain veterinary health care information. This survey is anonymous and will only take about 15 minutes of your time. We value your input!
