Fittness   (small group classes up to 4 dogs)

   All dogs can do with a little help to keep them fit and active.

    We will use specialised equipment for this course, though we will show you how to use everyday items which will work in the same way.

   This will enable you to build your dog's fitness levels at home without having to invest in any expensive equipment.

   If your dog is competing in dog sports, then this should be a core part of your dog's training life to help prevent injury, as well as help with their ability to continue in their chosen sport for as long as possible.

   Fitness is also important for those dogs who have injuries and/or getting older, to help them re-build muscle tone, stretch and build core strength to support their rehabilitation.

Oldies can do it too!   (small group classes up to 4 dogs)

   Do you have an older dog that you'd like to keep working with?

   Yes, old dogs can learn new things too and they love to play games to keep their brain and body active.

   This class is aimed at helping old dogs keep learning and active and keep them enjoying life into their later years.
