Ruff’N Tumble – Martial Arts for Dogs is an exciting dog sport that all dogs can do. It is an action sport that takes agility and teamwork to new levels for a dog and their handler. Obstacles are found in the environment and are limitless. Dogs can be on or off leash, so you don’t need reliability off leash.

The benefits to Ruff’N Tumble – Martial Arts for Dogs include:

  • Intense physical activity that teaches body awareness and stamina, requiring balance and flexibility.
  • Positive relationship building and trust between handler and dog.
  • All dogs will have an increase in self confidence as a result of mastering physical feats.
  • A great mental challenge, because the skills are performed in various locations, teaching a dog to be focused on a single activity regardless of the environmental distractions.
