Foundation Fitness with Bobbie Lyons
Join us for this in-person workshop held at Think Pawsitive Dog Training. In this workshop, you will have two in-person assistant instructors and instructor Bobbie Lyons via Zoom providing feedback on the big screen. Bobbie will teach you all about training the foundation skills needed for canine fitness. Skills will be first taught on the flat without any balance equipment. Bobbie will show you the proper training techniques for the foundation exercises and then how to transfer them to limited fitness equipment. You will learn how to obtain proper posture while engaging the correct muscles and muscle activation so that your dog understands what you are asking before putting him or her on the balance equipment. This is a great class for PUPPIES!
