This Course is an ideal way to motivate, challenge, and inspire yourself to be more active with your dog.  Simple fitness exercises stimulate the dog’s brain and body, helping eliminate problem behaviors and curb boredom and anxiety.


This Course is designed to provide a foundation to bring fun, fitness classes to students.  It is designed to inspire dog owners to engage in fitness-related activities with their dogs while minimizing the risk of injury or harm due to inexperienced instruction.  It is recommended that participants in the class complete at least a puppy class or the equivalent.


Dogs should understand the training game, and be able to focus on tasks during class.  Owners should understand lure-reward based training methods through capturing and shaping as training concepts may also be used in class.


This course is for healthy dogs with no significant prior injuries or ongoing conditions.  This course is NOT for dogs recovering from injuries, who are morbidly obese, dogs in pain, or puppies under 12 months old.


Exercise categories that will be covered during classes:




-Mental Fitness

-Confidence Building

The final class will be an assessment of skills from the six weeks of class.
