This class starts this MONDAY. The classroom has already been opened with bonus pre-class materials so sign up today!

The time to teach your dogs rehabilitation exercises is when they are healthy and uninjured. Not only will this class help condition and strengthen your dog for improved performance, they can also help to prevent future injury. All the exercises in this class are used for warm up and cool down routines for training and competition as well.

This is a 4 week online Facebook class containing demo videos and written detailed explanations of every exercise. The classroom and all of its materials will remain available to all participants for one full year after the completion of class (in read only format). All class members can post their own practice videos for critique as well as participant in all discussions. This class is designed for any size, age, and breed of dog. This class uses no special equipment. We focus not only on the details of exercises themselves but also on the importance of correct body position, placement and timing of rewards, and breed/size specific and handler specific needs. 

The goal of this class is to train yourself and your dog how to perform these exercises on a non injured, physically sound dog so you can develop a technique that is safe and controlled.  Rehabilitating your dog back from an injury is complicated enough without having to deal with the stress of trying to teach yourself and your dog some new skill. Training new physical exercises while dealing with a dog who could be uncomfortable, off loading, or guarding pain, can complicate your dog’s recovery. The time to teach these kinds of rehabilitation exercises to your dog is when they are sound and healthy and before they are injured. After taking this class if your dog was to ever needs to rehabilitate from an injury you and he will already know how to perform many of the most common rehabilitation exercises.

DOG FALLING OFF DOGWALK!!!!


Luckily the dog was not injured from this fall.
BUT, now that I have your attention….


Canine Therapeutic Fitness Online Course


Don’t wait until your dog has been diagnosed with an injury to teach them the exercises most often used in rehabilitation by top Veterinarian Specialists.

Rehabilitating your dog back from an injury is complicated enough without having to deal with the stress of trying to teach yourself and your dog some new skill. Training new physical exercises while dealing with a dog who could be uncomfortable, off loading, or guarding pain, can complicate your dog’s recovery. The time to teach these kinds of rehabilitation exercises to your dog is when they are sound and healthy and before they are injured. Not only do these exercises help condition and strengthen your dog to help prevent injury but they are also useful for warm up and cool down routines for training and competition. And of course, if your dog ever needs to rehabilitate from an injury, he will already know how to perform many of the most common rehabilitation exercises. Oh and for what its worth, the dog in the photo above was trained in these exercises all of his life. Which is most likely why he was not injured from this fall off the dogwalk. 

In this 4 week online Facebook class we will cover some of the most common conditioning/rehabilitation exercises used today. The goal of this class is to train yourself and your dog how to perform these exercises on a non injured, physically sound dog so you can develop a technique that is safe and controlled. We focus not only on the details of exercises themselves but also on the importance of correct body position, placement and timing of rewards, and breed/size specific and handler specific needs. 

This class is designed for any size, age, and breed of dog. This class uses no special equipment. Each exercise is explained from beginning thru advanced stages.

Start Date: October 8, 2018
Length of Course: 4 Week Facebook Class (Class page with all course material and videos available in read only format to participants for one year after completion of class)
Cost: $100

New Winter Classes ONLINE at Agility University!!!



Agility Toolbox: Rock Solid Weave Pole Entries

Unique and fun skill games that you can practice in small spaces to improve your dog’s weave pole entry success. From deceleration and weight shift to body bending and aim accuracy, entering weave poles at speed can be a big challenge to any dog. This class is designed to teach you the tools necessary to train your dog to have rock solid weave entries in a fun and motivating environment. 

Whether your just beginning your weave pole sequencing or your already competing at the higher levels, mastering weave entries at speed is a must have skill for every team. In this class we discuss fun and creative ways to work on the weave entries without having to put the dogs thru endless repetition. 

The exercises in this class can be done with any type of weave pole (competition standard poles, weave-a-matics, channel poles, 2x2, etc). Dogs participating in this class should already know to weave between the poles and be food and/or toy motivated. This class is only focusing on the “entry” to the poles.

Agility Toolbox: Handling To Improve Jumping Success. 

Does your dog knock bars? Could your handling be part of the problem? In this class we focus on you the handler and what you can do to help your dog keep their bars up and make fluid, efficient turns. This class will show you in detail the proper placement and timing of the basic handling skills in easy to set up sequences that also help improve your dogs jumping mechanics at the same time as we train the handler how to negotiate those turns.

This class will also discuss in detail how your reward placement and timing plays an important role in keeping the bars up. Detailed video and still frames from the videos with markups showing each detail discussed in the weekly lessons.

This class is perfect for all teams of any age and competition level. Puppy and young dogs will keep bars low and competition teams can work at whatever height they are comfortable at.
