This page will have information for veterinary professionals (veterinarians and credentialed veterinary technicians) who are involved in the sport of canine agility. Our goal is to build a network of veterinary professionals who are available and willing to assist with collection of data for researchers. Are you interested in learning more?

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. If you are aware of other manuscripts that might be added to our bibliography, please send us an email at the address above. Click this button to access the bibliography!
