By Peter Bergen and Michael E. SmithThe National Dog Assisted Vehicle Training Foundation (NDAAF) has a new canine-assisted obstacle course, which will be tested at the upcoming U.S. Open in June.
The NDAF is a non-profit organization that works to educate the public on the benefits of canine assistance for pets.
The NDAAF, which was founded in 2001, has more than 60 dogs and cats trained for obstacle courses.
Some are specially trained to help with obstacle courses, while others are trained for agility and other sport activities.
The obstacle course will be based at the Kentucky Derby, which runs June 9 to 13.
The event features a number of obstacle courses designed for dogs, but there is no guarantee that the dogs will all perform in perfect condition.
“Our goal is to get dogs into the right position for each obstacle course.
That can mean anything from putting their paws on the bar to holding the handles, to making a grab for the bar, or even putting their heads into the bar for a jump,” NDAHF CEO and CEO Gary Tannenbaum told ABC News.”
In addition to providing training for dogs that have previously been on a regular obstacle course or agility course, our course also provides training for agility, agility and obstacle courses,” Tannenberg said.
The Kentucky Derby will be the first dog obstacle-course in the United States.
“We know that many dog owners are frustrated with the obstacle courses on offer at racetracks, and are willing to sacrifice safety to get their dogs out of the house,” Tanna said.

The dog obstacle courses are designed to help dogs perform in a safe environment.
They are designed with a variety of obstacles, from flat, flat-iron and dog obstacles, to large, vertical, horizontal and curved obstacles.
“In addition, the courses are structured to be easier on the dog’s body and more enjoyable for the dog than a traditional obstacle course,” TANNENBERG said.
“We have a number, we’re looking at a number,” Trenberg said.
The courses will have dog-friendly fencing and barriers, along with “tough concrete, plastic and metal obstacles, so that dogs will be safe from the elements and will be able to climb over the obstacles.”
“We are also excited to see how our canine partners react to the course, and whether they enjoy the course,” he added.
“For us, this is a great opportunity to introduce dogs to a new challenge, and to make a difference for their lives.”
The Kentucky derby is the only one of its kind in the world.
The U.K. Derby has a dog-led event, but the NDABF said that the Kentucky derby will be dog-free.
The Kentucky Derby is a three-day event that begins June 11, and runs through June 14.
“This will be our first time to do a dog assisted course,” Nanna said, noting that the courses will take place in a secure facility with a secure fencing system.
The Derby will also feature the world’s largest dog obstacle race, the Kentucky Horse Show, which takes place June 12 to 15.
The horses are trained by NDABF dogs and can jump over hurdles of up to 150 feet in height.
The courses are part of the NAAF’s Dogs Alive program, which trains dogs to perform a variety the tasks of agility, obstacle-running, agility, and other sports.
“The challenge is to make sure that the course and the dogs are not going to make each other’s lives miserable,” Tranberg said, adding that the goal is “to make a life for the dogs and make them a happier, healthier, healthier dog.”
The courses will be open for a limited time.
The first six courses are scheduled to open on May 20, and the remaining courses will open in August.
