Maximize Your Workouts with Minimal Equipment & Less Set Up Time.

No Need to Adjust Inflation Levels of Equipment When Working Multiple Dogs!

SELF-PACED CLASS

As soon as you sign up, you have access to all the lessons.

This way you can pick and choose which exercises to work on.



Are you short on time for set-up sometimes or only own a few pieces of equipment?
Are you interested in just grabbing a few pieces of equipment for your entire workout for one or more dogs?

With platforms and balance pads (foam pads), you won’t need to adjust inflation levels of equipment when you switch out dogs! Learn a variety of diverse, beneficial exercises and combinations to properly strengthen your dog. These exercises will reduce the chance of injury, improve strength and flexibility, enhance performance and increase quality of life for your dog! You’ll broaden your mind to different choreography configurations. 


A platform could be an aerobic step bench, adjustable agility table, or a KLIMB. You may also substitute more unstable equipment for the balance pads, such as a ramp or small disc, as you desire – outside of class - after class has ended or as you continue to advance.
 

Who should participate?

Although not required, students may benefit by having previously taken Foundation Fitness. Students who have not taken Foundation Fitness are very welcome in this class.

Foundation Fitness
Possible Equipment - substitution will be recommended if you don’t have equipment used in the videos. FitPAWS is offering a 30% education discount. Klimb is offering a discount as well. Information to get the discount will be available upon enrolling.

▸ 2 balance (foam) pads (you may substitute one of the foam pads with a disc or ramp)
▸ 1-2 aerobic step benches with risers (you may substitute other things around the house for risers), 1-2 KLIMBs, OR another platform. Two is ideal but you can modify for one.
▸ For toy breeds and senior dogs, you may even use a folded towel or 1-2 Sensimats for your platform.
▸ For giant breeds, you may need to use 2 KLIMBs (stay tuned for the upcoming “Bring on the Big Dogs” class, too!). Your dog should be able to neutrally stand on the platform comfortably and be able to lie down with his entire body on the platform (including the front feet and excluding his tail).
▸ FitPAWS balance pads or cut up yoga mat pieces to use as foot targets if needed or to prevent equipment from sliding.
▸ 1-2 rolled up or folded large towels to add instability or elevation.


There are many possible equipment options and you may use something you have lying around your house.

Training Methods - A variety of training methods can be used to obtain the proper movement or position - shaping, luring, targeting, and It's Yer Choice. These methods will be discussed in the video tutorials, in the forum and through video review.

Disclaimer: Some information in this class may overlap or appear in other classes due to the foundation needed for many behaviors, tricks and fitness exercises. In addition, there are overlapping skills needed for many different performance activities so you may see exercises that are the same but packaged up differently toward a slightly different goal.
