What do you mean jumping?

Are you talking dock diving?

For what sports? Having a well conditioned dog will help and not to go too high too fast and teach the dog how to properly jump. Depending on the sport they will have their strategies. Stretching before training also is super important!

Stretching Exercises for Your Dog
Regular stretching keeps your performance dog conditioned and ready to work or compete.
By Maryanne Dell




Routine stretching, especially before competition, is one of the most important habits to develop with a canine athlete. It’s particularly essential for dogs engaged in strenuous sports, such as disc dog, agility and flyball, which can put a great deal of stress on their bodies.

However, you must stretch your dog correctly. To lessen the likelihood of injury, err on the side of caution by not stretching the body too far.

Here are three stretches that can benefit all dogs, courtesy of Debbie Gross-Saunders of Colchester, Conn., a certified canine rehabilitation practitioner who is board-certified in orthopedic physical therapy for humans and has been working with animals for about 15 years. Saunders has a doctorate in human physical therapy and an advanced master’s degree in human orthopedic physical therapy.

Before performing the stretches, walk your dog, building to a trot over the course of five to 10 minutes, Saunders says. This activity should increase the dog’s heart rate by 40 to 60 percent.

Next come the stretches:

Hip flexors: These muscles allow the hip to contract when the dog trots or runs. With your dog standing, gently grasp one of his back legs above the knee and slowly move the leg back, so it’s extended straight out behind his body. When you feel resistance, hold the position for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat two or three times with each leg. If your dog appears to be in pain, have his hips examined by a veterinarian.

Shoulder flexors: With your dog standing, gently grasp a front leg above the elbow and move the leg forward, as if the dog was giving a high five. Hold for 15 to 30 seconds, repeating two or three times with each front leg.

Back stretch: With the dog standing, use a treat to lure his head gently toward his tail. The dog’s body should bend in a C shape. Hold for 15 to 30 seconds, repeating two or three times on each side.

We read about Dock diving and we actually saw some Height (Vertical jumping) and Distance jumping from an old friend YEARS ago. Jason been ITCHING to get his hands on a Pit that can jump and LOVE it. he just saw Caesar jumping (climbing) up a solid tree to catch a squirrel with nothing to grip but the side itself. I been doing research online on some how to but not sure exactly what we are looking for. I want all the research done and learn of what we need to do before we start training him for anything.

Well, climbing up a tree after a squirrel is different than having a dog do dock-diving. IMO, a good dock-diving dog has the following qualities: swims well, ENJOYS swimming so they are eager to "work", is toy-driven (so they have the drive to go after the ball/bumper/whatever that you throw), and doesn't mind having to jump into water to go after whatever toy they love.

Kane is very toy-driven and loves swimming. He started amateur dock-diving on his own after he launched into a lake after a ball. I just built on that.

Oh, ok. I don't know anything about that. Just understand that that sort of jumping is very hard on the dogs, their joints, ligaments, etc. I would highly suggest you get Caesar's hips and elbows x-rayed for dysplasia, get him on a glucoasamine/chondroitin supplement, some fish oil.

How old is Caesar? You shouldn't start training for that until Caesar is at least 14-16 months old and his bones have finished growing.
