About the event
Did you know that there is a right way and a wrong way for a dog to swim? Pool fitness is a fun, safe and effective way to get and keep your dog fit! Swimming is one of the best forms of exercise for several reasons - It is low impact, puts very little stress on the joints, is a reflexive action, is a super cardiovascular workout and the sensation of the water against the skin helps to improve body awareness. Most importantly….it is fun!!!
Whether your dog competes in sports or not, cross training will help to keep your dog more in balance, increasing body awareness, strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness.
In this workshop you will learn the following:
* How to see whether you dog is swimming with a healthy swimming style (and how to fix poor technique) * Great Games to play with your dog in the pool to improve fitness, strength and balance. We have several exercises you can do with your dog in your pool, which will range from swimming, resistance bursts, boogie board, circles in the water and some exercises on the step, as well as some passive stretching.
Dogs need to be confident swimmers. You need to get in the pool with your dog for this one, so you'll get to have a splash too!!
