Clean Run wishes to thank all of the authors that donated their time and expertise to producing this special issue of the magazine so that we can better educate agility handlers, agility instructors, and breeders of performance dogs that must jump in their sport, about early takeoffs (ETOs) and how vision abnormalities affect our dogs. We are making this digital edition of the issue free for everyone in hopes that we can spread the word throughout the agility community at home and abroad.
