Conditioning work does not attempt to replace specialist work with a specialist such as a canine physical therapist, chiropractor, hydro or laser therapist or veterinary specialist.
We also offer Wag and Tone fun workshops throughout the year where you get to train with your dogs on gentle fitness exercises to get you and your dog active and having fun together and the class includes a support group on Facebook also with additional tutorials and exercise plans!
We have developed our general canine fitness masterclasses into online sessions: we have Trim in Ten, various short workouts that can be completed in around 10 mins as well as separate tutorials for the exercises for you to work your dogs on to help with body awareness, strengthening, balance and confidence especially ideal for during the winter!
We also have our Wag and Tone online Masterclass – this is gentle fitness for dogs and their owners to work on together.
