Would you like to optimize the strength of your dog’s front legs, core and rear legs to reduce the risk of injury?
Would you like to boost your dog’s acceleration power for canine sports?
Would you like your dog’s reach and drive to stand out amongst all of the other dogs in the conformation ring?
Would you like your dog to trot proudly beside you on walks no matter how slow you go?
And do you want to do all of this using only $10 worth of equipment?
This is exactly what Dr Chris Zink DVM PhD DACVSMR demonstrates in this session! The trot is one of the most important gaits for our dogs. They use it in many sports, as well as daily life. It is also the gait that enables us to best evaluate their physical health. But how do you teach your dog to trot on command? Find out in this fun class that is valuable for all owners.
