spay and agility

It depends on what kind of training you are doing. Full courses at full height?


My personal time-frame is no jumping until at least the stitches are out (or would be out if there are none) or longer. I'd suggest asking your vet though.

And how old is she?


Your vet is your best bet, s/he's the one who knows your dog and did the surgery.


My little dog just got neutered at 3 1/2. My vet thinks he'll be good to go in a week and be back to competition form in two. We have a trial on July 9, but I think I'll just enter him in a couple of classes, mostly non-jumping. No reason to push it.


Spays are obviously a bit more invasive. I'd probably wait about a month before planning to go back to full height jumps & obstacles, but there is a lot of stuff you can do until then.

Good plan! The hardest part I have an issue with doing surgery this time of the year is not being able to go swimming. My dogs love to swim and it's hot out. Poor Kaiser. :( lol If I had my druthers, I'd prefer to do it in the winter -- but it is what it is.
