Canine Fitness Fun! Ways to Keep Your Dog Active
Sunday, November 4
9 am – 4 pm
Come join our recently certified Canine Conditioning Coaches for a 6 hour workshop to learn ways to keep your dog active and fit. AWS instructors, Lisa Walker and Karen Casey, recently completed Canine Conditioning Coach certifications with world-renowned trainer Kyra Sundance, and are excited to share some fun ideas they learned! Through stretches, games and tricks you will see your dog gain more confidence, coordination, attention, strength, and directional skills. These conditioning exercises help improve a dog’s overall fitness and focus. You will learn how to incorporate equipment and props that you can build, buy, and find at home to keep your companion active. This is the perfect workshop if you are looking for new ways to keep your dog physically and mentally fit, especially when we are stuck indoors due to inclement weather.
This class is open to dogs 6 months or older that are in good health, are injury free and can handle the active nature of this class. All dogs must arrive with trimmed nails and be comfortable in the vicinity of other dogs in class. If you have questions about if this class is a good fit for your dog, please ask before registering.
