|I don't see how it couldn't. If the dog has a joint issue why would you ask it do a sport with hard running, tight turns, weaving and jumping? All things that put stress on the joints?
I was training Jewel in agility when I was told that the way she was put together things like the A frame would put stress on her shoulder joints and could cause problems. She has since then developed luxating patellas as well.
When I set up the equipment in the yard in the summer I still let her play around and run little courses at a slow speed just low jumps and tunnels which are what she liked anyways. But I won't risk her health by asking her for any speed or height.
