Whether your dog is involved in agility, herding, obedience, dock diving, Schutzhund, tracking, or any of the other dog sports, a full performance assessment will assist in determining the dog’s ability and performance potential in their individual sport.
The basic Performance Assessment includes the following:
- Gait analysis
- Force plate analysis with a Uni-cam
- Static system review of video or actual performance of event if possible
- Body evaluation
- Structural assessment
- Muscle and joint assessment
We are also able to perform a Dartfish analysis for an additional fee to fully evaluate the dog’s gait and movement.
We will assess the dogs for weaknesses and deficits. If any problems are discovered, we will formulate a plan, inclusive of treatments and exercises, to amend the problems and get your dog in its top shape for their activity. Sometimes the dog is not best suited for the activity desired and we can discuss other alternatives.
Assessments are conducted at canine sporting events, dog shows, club sponsored events and our Colchester facility. Check our Appointment Page for registration availability.
