Roo Jumping

Im hoping I did that right... this is Roo when she was just under a year old. This jump is 3'9" but she has jumped up to 4'6" just don't have any pictures. Also attached a picture of her as a puppy.

You know jumping a dog under a year is like jumping a young horse right? Most agility trainers wont start jumps till they are over a year an a half, and they start small.

yes I know and by no means have I ever forced her to jump. Thanks for your concern, but she has always jumped, even when she was younger she used to jump off our 4' deck. If she wasn't about to do it I wouldnt make her. Its not like she's on a leash and im dragging her over it... but thanks

she's a dog... her joints are more at risk playing with other dogs, she's 2 years old now and is just fine, great actually. Blue heelers are bred to work from a young age (cattle dogs... so chasing cows) I think she'll be ok.

I know what a cattle dog is. Saying she is just a dog is like saying it's just a horse. Do you jump young horses at that hight? I would hope not. Its the same thing, when landing from a jump, all of her weight is comming down on her front joints, and at that age, arnt even closed yet.

I know how hard it is to keep a dog from jumping, I have Jack Russells, one of mine is basicly a spider monkey. My dogs are athlets, and I want their joints to hold up till they are old and gray, so when they were young, I tried to keep them from things they could jump off of.

im sorry you have a problem with a dog running around playing... its just what she does I don't force her. She's an outside dog... theres much worse things she can get her paws on..

Dogs will be dogs just like with anything else you can't control what they do 24/7. I think it's kinda cute =)
