If you want to keep your dog strong and healthy, join this conditioning and body awareness class. The flow yoga-like approach behind each game will teach you how you can properly keep a self-paced, force-free routine workout with your dog’s fitness level in mind. The dogs use their own body weight and movability to condition and build body awareness and strength.
This class will safely improve your dog’s fitness through conditioning and body awareness exercises — ultimately preventing injuries, even if your sport is hiking or running around in the back yard.
Other benefits are:
- increased body awareness
- increased confidence
- improved attitude
- added flexibility and balance
- helps with weight loss
- increases over-all strength
After attending Robert J Porter, CCRP "It’s Possible” Conditioning Workshop, I have gained a better understanding of the benefits of using a force-free approach. This class includes some of the safest and effective ways to strengthen your dogs body for the typical movements the 21st century dog does on a daily basis. I’m soooo excited to say, IT IS POSSIBLE to keep your active dog healthy.
There will be a “Declaration of Pet’s Health” each dogs team will sign after the first class of this 5 class series saying: “I declare and acknowledge that my dog is in good health, injury free, and that participating in this K9 Fitness class does not contradict any recommendations or guidelines established for my dog by a veterinary professional (i.e., veterinarian, rehabilitation practitioner, veterinary chiropractor, etc.) My pet is free of internal and external parasites, any communicable diseases, and has received appropriate vaccinations.”
If at any time you feel the class isn't for you and your dog, you can pull out with a prorated refund. But I assure everyone that we will not progress until your dog is comfortable and 100% willing and ready to. I think you really will enjoy this approach to a healthy force-free K9 fitness workout for your dog.
