Canine Strength and Conditioning

Join Bobbie Lyons and learn about canine strength, conditioning and posture. In this workshop you will learn fun fitness exercises that can be done in your living room, garage or backyard. These exercises will keep your dog mentally and physically challenged during the winter and summer months when it is too cold or hot outside to walk your dogs. The exercises taught will include surface and equipment training to build confidence, while also improving balance and strength. There will be a mix of target training and repetitive movements to keep your dog engaged and happy while decreasing the chance of injury. 

This workshop is meant for young (16 weeks and above) to senior dogs. We will adjust exercises for the age and physical abilities of each dog. We will take breaks so that your dogs are not working the whole day but so we can discuss the ins and outs of fitness.  Bring a crate, mat or cot for your dog to hang out on when not working.
