For puppies that will compete in dog sports such as agility, obedience, flyball, frisbee/flying disc and herding, spay/neuter can wait until growth plates have closed but no later then 18 months of age.

7a. BONE CLOSURE: “Long bones have a specific area at one or both ends called the growth plate, where the cells replicate and add to the length of the bone. This growth plate is an area in which the bone is softer and more readily injured. The growth plate continues to add to the length of the bone until the age at which it is genetically programmed to close. It then becomes identical in composition to the rest of the bone. The age at which the growth plates close differs for each bone. Larger dogs’ growth plates close later than those of small bones.” Taken from the book Peak Performance by Dr. Chris Zinc DVM, the foremost canine sports vet and author of several books on canine sports medicine, nutrition and physiology.

7b. Bone closure can only be determined thru an x-ray taken by a certified veterinarian. Training exercises such as weave poles, jumping anything above elbow height, agility contact equipment such as regulation/full height dogwalk, A-Frame and teeter as well as multiple repetitions, frisbee/flying disc catching, Over exercise at the park/beach off leash area, chasing of balls, Excessive running, overworking flyball box turns, Excessive walking up and down stairs or working stock beyond the occasional introductory stages, should not be executed by any Dunwurkn puppy until their growth plates have closed or no sooner then the age of 12 months. It has been acknowledged that these stated examples may contribute to soft tissue/ligament injury, OCD, elbow and/or hip dysplasia. If any of these examples are performed/executed by the puppy before the growth plates are closed, the Breeder/Seller has no obligations nor owes any compensation for any injuries sustained then or in the future from such early training of the above mentioned examples.
