Exercise is important for dogs of all breeds and ages! You will learn to shape a multitude of interactive skills and exercises that will benefit your dog’s overall fitness, performance and endurance while at the same time, building your relationship. These will include:
- Exercises to Enhance Strength, Flexibility and Body Awareness
- Safe Stretching
- Working with a variety of fitness tools including Fit Bones, Dyna Disks, Pods, Planks, etc.
Each week of the workshop we will focus on a different theme and exercises for you to work on with your dog.
Teaching canine fitness is one of the most important things you can do to enhance your dog’s confidence while at the same time, building his strength and flexibility. Working together on these skills will build the bond you share with your dog and be a lot of fun for both of you.
Think Pawsitive instructors use a choice-based, positive reinforcement training philosophy to train dogs and puppies to be wonderful pets and/or successful agility competitors.
