AKC Fit Dog Level 1

About the Course

This is a fun fitness class designed to inspire you to engage in fitness related activities with your dog. This beginner level class will teach your canine fitness safety and skills to help with strength, flexibility, cardiovascular health, balance and much more. This is an excellent class for students involved in dog sports to help develop and maintain conditioning skills for your competition dog. Experienced instruction will help you learn proper form and minimize the risk of injury or harm. This class is not designed for dogs in need of rehabilitation. It is only for healthy dogs with no significant prior injuries or ongoing conditions.

Each dog team works on their own assigned safely spaced dedicated Klimb board apparatus and other items. However, to get the full benefit of the skills you will be learning, it is suggested that you have the following items at home, so that you can practice during the week. We will discuss options the first week at class and there is no need to purchase anything prior to the class:

-Some type of raised platform that is sturdy and can hold the weight of your dog. The platform should have good traction on top. A KLIMB pedestal, Cato board or other stable and low (12” high or less) platform is recommended. These can be easily homemade as well.

-A Rubber Feed Bowl (these can be found at such vendors as Tractor supply, your local feed supply store – used for pivot and turn skills

-A balance pad or equivalent (towel, yoga mat, pillow, etc.)

Attendees track their skills and progress using a provided AKC Skills sheet and will be evaluated at the last class (week 6) by the AKC Fit Dog Instructor and receive an AKC Fit Dog Certificate.
