Canine Conditioning Course Part 2 - Working

YOUR DOG IS AN ELITE ATHLETE! Take your dog's fitness to the next level with exercises you can easily perform at home. I have supplied many exercises that do not require any equipment, as well as a number of exercises increasing in difficulty that require only a box and a disc.  No need to purchase lots of expensive equipment!

All performance sports require our dogs to be finely honed athletes. Without proper conditioning performance will suffer and your dog is at risk for injury. Most performance injuries occur due to lack of a well thought out, properly executed conditioning program.

Learn how to condition your dog safely and to maximize benefit from the time you invest in your dog.  Petra is a physical therapist certified in canine rehabilitation, an athlete and competes with her own dogs in multiple venues.


This course builds on the foundation provided in Canine Conditioning Part 1. I strongly recommend you complete Part 1 before taking Part 2. However, if your dog already has a fitness base and/or because you have taken other courses/seminars this course will work for you. I have provided "Review" sections throughout the course indicating a foundation exercise your dog needs for the more advanced exercise.

THIS COURSE WILL COVER:

  • A variety of strengthening and flexibility exercises that require no equipment
  • Exercises progressing in difficulty that improve endurance, strength and flexibility using basic equipment (box and disc)
  • Advanced exercises that will improve balance, coordination, and body awareness 
  • Exercises that safely and correctly strengthen core muscles and provide overall strengthening and flexibility to improve performance
