NO, I would not do nor as a trainer would condone a one year old doing a full height a frame.
To much slamming on the joints, keep it lowered and work on having solid contacts.

|BoTaBe||My dog did the A-frame the first time when he was about 15 months old. If you do the dogwalk before, they usually just "transfer" it (contacts etc.) so there's no need to do it that early!|

NO - do not do anything except low impact until the growth plates are closed...no pounding and everything in moderation

I would only do the A frame lower, not full height. But, if it's once or twice a session, once a week, you are probably ok.

can my dog do the A-frame if his growth plates arn't closed
I have a 1 year old GSD. He weighs 64 pounds. I don't think his growth plates are closed yet. I jump him 12 ( 2 inches smaller than height of elbow) I am currently doing the A-frame full hieght in classes and less steep at home. We do classes once a week. I am in junior handler intermidiate 3 class. I go with the small dogs so he doesn't jump high. Also he doesn't do the weave poles. Can I do the full height A-frame or should I wait until his growth plates are closed? As I said before class is only once week and at home the Aframe isn't as steep.
