Why canine fitness?

  • builds muscle

  • protects joints

  • prevents injury

  • increases lifespan

  • improves the handler-dog bond

  • provides mental enrichment


My dog is reactive toward other dogs, can I still attend?

Absolutely! We ask that you audit the course instead of choosing a working spot. You still get all the information (and goodies) but you can focus on the material instead of managing your dog.

What should I bring with me?

If you have purchased a working spot: 3 different high value treats for your dog (hot dogs, chicken, cheese, etc.), a water bowl, treat pouch, crate or a dog bed/mat, six foot leash (NO retractable leashes nor prong collars), poop bags, notebook, and something to write with. Your dog should be on a flat buckle or martingale collar. If you purchased an audit spot: a notebook and something to write with.

Will lunch be provided?

We will have some light snacks and water, but lunch will not be provided.

My dog is in rehab afer ACL surgery, can we still attend?

For this workshop, we recommend choosing an audit spot as some exercises may not be appropriate for a dog recovering from an injury. Auditing would allow you to take information home and work closely with your rehab vet to create fun and safe exercises for your dog.


Does my dog need previous training to attend?

No, beginners are welcome and encouraged!
