2 Hr FitPAWS Conditioning Workshop

  • Friends for Life; Holisitc Pet Training and Educational Center 30596 Bryant Drive Evergreen, CO, 80439 United States (map)

FitPAWS conditioning exercises provide an overall body workout that will help strengthen your dogs muscles so they stay healthy and fit!

You and your dog will learn about body awareness, proper warm up and cool down and get the chance to play on different equipment.  Perfect for the athlete, couch potato, weekend warrior, ANY dog really.

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!
