Rubberizing contacts has become more and more of a topic of discussion in the agility world. Some are all for, and some are against.
I think rubber-coating is a good idea, since it provides more traction for the dogs’ claws. If your dog can have more traction, they’re less likely to skid down the A-frame, or slide off the table. Anything to give my dog a leg up on contacts is a good thing in my book!
We’ve started carrying rubber contact kits at Affordable Agility! It’s a great product. Check out this video of rubberized vs. sand treated contacts! Isn’t it awesome? What do you think of rubber contacts?
