12 Minute K9 Workout ONLINE Class at Agility U

Above is a photo of my dog Wow! slipping on a dog walk. The dog walk was rubberized and there was no equipment failure or any kind, just a dog slipping for whatever reason. No injury was caused by this slip. Im not posting this photo here for any other reason except to say that if my dog wasn't as conditioned well as he was he would of fallen off this dog walk. Instead, he powered through this slip and kept himself on the plank.

Speedoggie has been one of the nation’s innovators in conditioning and body awareness training  programs for performance dogs. It started years and years ago with our combination of trick training and core and body work for dogs. Our program has now morphed and taken on a life of its own with our Total Team training, combining all of our trick training along with our conditioning and body awareness work combined with our performance training programs.

New for 2015 we have designed a breakthrough idea for helping our clients keep their dogs in top physical condition. Speedoggie’s new 12 Minute K9 Workout is a totally unique conditioning program that we are offering through Agility University’s online training school. The course is a once a week video that you can easily access. In that video you will get detailed information on all of the poses and exercises we will be doing in that week’s 12 minute workout. Next in the video is the actual 12 minute workout. Each workout is designed to be balanced for your dogs, so each muscle group is worked in a proper and healthy manner (ie extending muscles after contraction work, etc). The workouts are designed to be repeated multiple times during the week.

If you can open an email, you can join our class! Its just that easy. All technical support is totally free and delivered thru the AU staff personally. Its easy to get set up and its even easier to participate in the classes. There are multiple participation levels for those who just want to watch the videos and do the work but not submit any video of their own or ask any questions about the workout itself. So if you’re not video savvy and don’t feel you can post your own, you don’t have to! If you would just like to view the videos and participate in the discussions there a participation level for that too. Check out this link with all the information on it. This class is designed to work as an integral part of your total training program. It’s something you can do every day, or just a few times a week, the results you get are equal to the amount of time you dedicate to it.

We all know that keeping our dogs strong, fit and flexible increases their ability to compete and train at top capacity, decreases their chance of injury, and allows them to have long, healthy and successful careers in agility.  Winter is the perfect time to start your indoor exercise program.  Speedoggie’s new Four Paw Fusion 12 Minute K9 Workout Online at Agility University was created to give maximum results with a minimum of time and effort.  These are the exercises we do with our own dogs to keep them training and competing at their best.   Following the 12 minute program just three times a week will improve your dog’s conditioning in just a few weeks and keep your dog in the best shape possible.  Each week’s lesson includes detailed instruction as well as the workout and we feel that all our students would really benefit from the program.  Even if you don’t feel you have the time to be a full class participant, signing up as an auditor will give you the same access to class videos, and allow you to ask questions and receive assistance.  If you want to team to hit the Spring trials at your peak, this is the answer!
