Special dog- I wouldn't do this but maybe I couldn't train it anyway! It just looks really hard on the joints to me. Mentally for the dog I see no issues. My dogs love a challenge, when we are hiking there are some rock faces I try to lead them around and mostly they won't have it and just go up or down without me seeing where they got a foothold.

The thing that worries me is the jump down- hard on the joints for any living creature.

Hold my beer! Outside of a disability or being physically out of shape it shouldn't be that difficult for a human. Not with two lines anyways.

As for the dog, he knows exactly where the ground is and how to bail out safely should the need arise, that's something he's probably already done a few times working up to this point during training.

This is not an average pet owner doing tricks, it's a K9 officer and his partner. If the end result makes them more prepared for whatever they encounter then I don't see a problem with it. Now if you'll excuse me I have to go finish packing my dogs parachute for the weekend jump.
