Fun Morning Working with FitPAWS® K9FITBONES AND BALANCE DISCS
When clients ask me what two pieces of FitPAWS® equipment they should start with, FitBones and Balance Discs is my answer!
Maureen is a Certified Canine Fitness Trainer (CCFT) and Certified Trick Dog Instructor (CTDI) which ensures your dog will be given the appropriate exercises during the workshop.
Conditioning your dog shouldn’t be a chore, come and learn strengthening exercises that you and your dog will enjoy using only 2 pieces of equipment. There are now 3 different sizes of K9FITBONES!
Adding strengthening activities to your dog’s activities 3-4 times a week has many benefits, including:
- Improved reaction and control
- Increased trunk and core strength
- Stabilization of weak areas
- Improved balance and proprioception (awareness of the body’s position in space)
- Increased range of motion in joints & elongation of the muscles
- Improved sensory & body awareness
- Preventing sports-related injuries
This 2 hour workshop includes lecture with valuable information and live demonstrations so that you and your dog will learn proper warm up and cool down exercises, when to slow your dog down and when your dog needs to be still. Your dog will be given plenty of breaks!
This workshop will also include basic dog appropriate front and hind limb exercises and is geared for all levels, from dogs that have never done any formal canine conditioning work to our more advanced dogs that need more of a challenge!
Please note, if the minimum of 4 dogs is not achieved, the workshop will be cancelled.
