The Strong Dog Program is specially designed to meet the needs of dogs living an active lifestyle and having a good time with life, but not competing in high impact sports. This program contains a progression of exercises from Beginner level to Advanced, with a sprinkling of Expert level here and there. It includes strength, stability and mobility components and proprioceptive challenges as well as a focus on enrichment and relationship building.
I have organized the material into three different Tracks so it can be applied in a variety of ways to meet your dog’s specific needs. This is detailed below.
If you’re interested in improving coordination, strength and mobility, adding enrichment, boosting mental focus, and building a Strong Dog, without the need for high impact training, this Program was designed just for you!!
Dog / handler teams who have completed the Puppy or Beginner Program will be well prepared for the physical and mental challenges of the Strong Dog Program. Teams experienced with formal conditioning can begin with this program, but some remedial work may be necessary in order to guarentee proper alignment and muscle recruitment.
If you’re unsure if this is the right program for your pup or your goals, we can always schedule a FREE 30 min Video Consult to go over things face-to-face.
Explanation of Tracks included in this Program
The Strong Dog Program offers 3 different ways to approach the material depending on the individual dog’s needs and the goals of the dog/handler team.
Boredom Buster Track
The Boredom Buster Track mixes things up so you and your pup are exposed to a variety of exercises, without having to repeat things over and over again. This approach keeps canine conditioning interesting, enriching and fresh for everyone involved. Each workout is split into two mini-circuits to be executed in an alternating pattern. When your pup reaches fluency in 2–4 weeks, the next circuit has brand new exercises to explore and master. Keep your pup engaged with the Boredom Buster Track!
Time Saver Track
The Time Saver Track is a total body, balanced workout of 3-4 exercises to be executed 2-3 times a week. If followed to completeion, this series of 9 circuits + 3 maintenance circuits will leave you with a comprehensive workout program covering all applicable exercises on the Canine Conditioning Coach site. If you’re tight on time, but still want to maintain your pup’s fitness, the Time Saver Track for you!
Zone Focus Track
The Zone Focus Track is specially designed to focus on specific areas that might be weak or troublesome in an individual, allowing for a targeted fitness approach. Each 3 circuit progression targets the Front End, Core, or Rear End respecitvely. While each individual circuit is intentionally weighted to affect a specific body part, the body is a system… So I’ve designed each progression so the workout is safe and balanced.
