Agility Community

This section of the Agility Dog Health Network provides information and resources for all members of the agility community.

Join us for a Virtual Journal Club via Zoom webinar on Wednesday, March 2 at 3 pm Pacific time (6 pm Eastern time). We will discuss the recent publication describing factors that might be associated with an increased or decreased risk of cranial cruciate ligament rupture in agility dogs. This journal club format is intended to provide a critical review of the strengths and limitations of this published research. The authors of this paper (members of the Agility Dog Health Network) will discuss the paper and you will have the opportunity to ask questions! We encourage you to access the full text of the paper via this link prior to the journal club session so you will be prepared to engage in the discussion!

This journal club event will be recorded and we will provide a link to the video on youtube so that you can review it later if you are unable to join us live!

We have compiled a bibliography of peer-reviewed research publications related to canine agility. The bibliography includes sections on Injuries and Medical Problems, Exercise Science, and Behavior/Training/Human-Animal Bond. Each publication listed is hyperlinked to a site that has open access to a full text of the manuscript or to the abstract of the article if the full text is not available.
