Frequently Asked Questions
There are several types of dog ramps used in agility courses, including A-frames, dogwalks, teeters, and see-saws. A-frames have two ramps joined at the top to form an "A" shape. Dogwalks are long ramps with a flat surface for dogs to walk or run across. Teeters and see-saws are ramps that pivot in the middle, providing a balancing challenge for the dogs.
Dog ramps are used in agility courses to provide dogs with an opportunity to navigate inclines and declines, simulating real-life scenarios they may encounter in various agility challenges. They help dogs develop strength, balance, and coordination while enhancing their overall agility and speed.
When introducing your dog to a dog ramp, it's important to start gradually and use positive reinforcement. Begin by allowing your dog to explore the ramp at their own pace, sniffing and investigating it. Encourage your dog with treats and praise, and gradually introduce them to walking up and down the ramp. Patience and consistency are key to helping your dog feel comfortable and confident on the ramp.
