because your puppy's bones and joints are still developing. You can cause bad deformities and long term injuries by exercising them too much. I wouldn't start jumping until they're about 8 or 9 months IMO

Most important is what kind of jumping? Are you talking about agility, Are you talking about flying disk dogs, or like the flirt pole or spring pole? They all will vary in answers because each impact the body different. Good rule of thumb is 10-11 months.

im talking mainly spring pole and flirt poles. I just built him a puppy size spring pole ($8 to build btw) and hes loving it. its low enough to where he just has to stand to get the toy but i've seen his butt touch the ground while tugging.

there can even be an impact on his front joints from standing up, but its nothing like jumping in air and landing on all fours. if your pup lets go, and is putting their weight on the hind legs, that can be harmful at a young age too. when you use the flirtpole, try and keep the dog on the ground. add sharper turns slowly as you work your dog into the activity, because the intense work out will tone your dog, and works a lot of muscles.

the spring pole i would have set pretty low until around 10 or 11 months as well, i have seen dogs with joint problems and while it can not only cause deformation, it can become painful to your dog and burn a hole in your wallet. youre talkin permanent damage.

I agree lower your spring pole depending on the age of the pup. If the pup is under 10 months then lower it almost to the floor so all four feet touch the ground and he cannot jump to get it after 11 months you can raise it up to where his back feet just touch. Never raise it high enough where he has to jump and hang in the air, IMO they will land real hard and can injure themselves.
