This webinar will provide you with an introduction to foundation behaviors used in Canine Fitness. Once your dog can do these behaviors, you can start adding in more advanced fitness challenges. Proper alignment will be stressed as will setting up a safe environment for canine fitness. How to teach these behaviors along with props that could assist will also be addressed. I'll also discuss how many repetitions to do, frequency, and how long you should do exercises before you increase the difficulty.
