Analysis of the risk factors for injury through the measurement of the joint angles and forelimb ground reaction forces of agility dogs over the dog walk contact

Abstract The injury rate in agility dogs has been found to be relatively high, with the bar jumps, A-frame and dog walk cited as the obstacles most frequently associated with injury. Multiple studies have considered the biomechanical effects of the bar jumps and A-frame on agility dogs, but none so far have considered the biomechanical…
