Sold Out

Course description 

8 weeks to the start of the Agility trial season! It comes around so quickly. The questions I ask myself firstly…Are my dogs sound and fit enough? Are my dogs jump and weave fit? Are all the agility skills required in place and how much of a refresher do my dogs need?

For the first time ever, there is now a K9 FITREADY FITNESS PROGRAM that combines the merits of both K9 strength training and jumping grids for jumping skills in a comprehensive and intensive 8 weeks program to prepare your dog for the demands of the agility competition season.

The K9 FitReady strength exercises in this 8 week program have been specifically selected for the AGILITY dog to build core strength, rear & shoulder strength, spinal flexibility, a strong back, improve footwork, balance & proprioception and to help prevent common agility dog injuries such as iliopsoas strain, front end weaknesses, Achilles tendon strain, etc

For a comprehensive 8 weeks to Trial Fit program, we complement these K9 FITREADY STRENGTH EXERCISES with a series  of JUMPING GRIDS (derived from Susan Salo and Linda Mecklenburg methodlogies) to improve your dog’s jumping skills  including collection, extension to collection, slices & serpentines, optimal serpentine & threadle footwork, bend work, backside wrap, optimal striding & scoping.

The program will include:

  • 2 -3NEW K9 FitReady Strength exercises EVERY 2 -3 weeks (commencing from week 1) with progression of those exercises in the following weeks
  • 2 NEW Jumping grids EVERY week
