The Beg: K9Yoga Basic Pose

What it does:

Strengthens the muscles of the lower back

Strengthens the stabilising muscles of the hips

Strengthens the stomach muscles

How to:

Using a treat, encourage your dog to just lift the weight off his/her front paws. Feed while the paws are off the ground.

DO NOT reward if:

a) the dog jumps up by launching off his back legs - this does not engage the lower back

b) the dogs holds onto you with his front legs - this becomes a very difficult habit to break.

Be patient and take the time to gradually increase the dog's strength, balance and confidence.

Repeatx10, and aim to hold the pose for 10s
