Dobo is a new dog sport that combines exercise and having fun with the dog. Exercises are mainly done with the help of balls shaped like eggs. Some dobo movements are made with half-balls, and some with balance disks. The dog should never be forced to do movements and they are made on the dog's conditions with the handler's support. The sport includes three kinds of movements: movements made by the dog, the handler or together. There are different levels of movements aimed from beginners to those who are more active. Many movements can be modified from easy to challenging through very small changes. The purposes of these movements vary. Goals include improving balance, body management or muscles, and stretching. Many movements in dobo work several muscle groups simultaneously and for many purposes. Most dobo movements are large movements that include several muscle groups working together. Even in seemingly static movements the muscles of both dog and handler are working hard.
