Dog Sports and other
Activities with Dogs

There are various dog sports and activities dog owners can enjoy with their dogs. Dog sports and activities basically can be divided into three

categories: dog powered versions of human sports (like ski-joring, roller-joring, carting, etc.), competitive versions of a working activity (sheep dog trials, tracking tests), and entertaining activities to do with your dog (musical freestyle, flyball, etc.).
