Canine Conditioning Workshop
September 22nd, 2019 12pm – 4pm

This Canine Conditioning Workshop will be focusing on the dogs! We all go thru a range of exercises geared towards dogs to raise body awareness for the front & rear limbs, as well as their stabilizer muscles. We will work with a variety of equipment like the klimb, peanut & more to increase their strength with combination exercises.

This class is great for dogs in sports to help your dog physically improve on & off the field and to prevent injury. Also great for a dog you’re wanting to show to tone them up & help with stacking. It’s also great for your average pet dog so they can live a healthy life & be able to jump on and off your bed easier!

You must reserve your spot as space is limited. This class will be kept small for 1:1 attention with the equipment. If you have your own equipment please feel free to bring it if you want extra guidance and for better practice at home just let us know at the time of signing up what equipment you have please. 1 dog/person; friendly dogs only; bring training treats & a water bowl for your dog. Each student will also receive an at home workout plan to practice what they learned at the workshop to do at home.

Working spots ($75) and Auditing Spots ($50) available. Working spots are available and include everything above and dogs should be old enough that their growth plates have closed 6+months. Auditing spots are available as well, but do not include a personalized plan and you can not bring your dog. Auditing spots are to observe and ask questions. If you have taken this course with us before you can take it again to learn more advanced techniques, message us for a discounted price! 

We will be in the upstairs training area of the Academy of Pet Careers inside of Petropolis.
