Since the inception of the American Kennel Club’s annual dog agility championship in 1994, the number of entrants has grown more than 375%, signifying a rise in opportunity for competitors. For dogs and their owners hoping to one day compete at the highest level of the ever-growing dog sport of Agility, it takes years of training and determination. Front-runners of the sport spend years working with a wide range of obstacles designed to test their speed, jumping, and control on a range of surfaces.
The Rise of EVA Foam in Dog Sports
Championship caliber canines must master both indoor and outdoor settings. Outdoor courses typically feature a loose surface like dirt or grass, adding an element of endurance to a dog’s training with the introduction of a less comfortable and less predictable surface. When it comes to training for an indoor facility, no flooring material is endorsed for maximizing a dog’s abilities quite like EVA foam, which offers superior grip, durability, and impact absorption, great for seeing what a dog can really do in a safe, controlled environment.
