Preparing Your Puppy for Exercise Workshop

​​

  • In this workshop, you will discover how to exercise your puppy safely. We will help you understand how to build up your puppy's exercise as they develop and grow, and gradually prepare them for longer walks.

  • We also help you understand how to prevent injuries later in life and how you can start preparing your puppy for agility or sports.

  • All of the exercises we cover will provide mental stimulation. They can all be replicated in your home environment.

  • This class will feature specialist Fitpaws equipment. Once you have completed the workshop, you can then sign up to use our Canine Gym!

  • This 1.5 hour workshop is suitable for puppies under 14 months of age.

  • Cost: £30.

Supporting Your Senior Dog with Exercise Workshop

​​

  • As dogs get older, their exercise needs to change. In this workshop, you will learn how to improve your senior dog's muscle strength and fitness. We will work on their balance and flexibility, which helps slow down the aging process.

  • We will cover exercises to help improve your dog's body awareness in our safe and fun workshop environment.

  • This class will feature specialist Fitpaws equipment. Once you have completed the workshop, you can then sign up to use our Canine Gym!

Adult Proprioception Workshops: Levels 1 & 2

​​

  • Canine athletes such as agility dogs can greatly benefit from proprioceptive conditioning. This type of training improves their ability to react faster, reducing the risk of injury.

  • Proprioceptive training can help your dog increase their confidence, mental focus and body awareness.

  • Some of the exercises covered will also improve muscle strength, balance and flexibility, which are all vital to maintain your dog's optimal fitness. Walking is great for endurance, but it doesn't help build your dog's strength or improve proprioception.

  • The level 2 course introduces the proprioception ladder, which helps improve your dog's coordination and focus.

  • Once you have completed the proprioception course, you can then move onto our Canine Conditioning course or join our Canine Gym!

  • This 1.5 hour workshop is suitable for dogs over 8 years of age.

  • Cost: £30.
