Targeted Strength Training for the Canine Athlete at On The Run! Canine Center 2/26/2021 - 4 PM to 6 PM
Is your dog up for the challenge?
Want to take your sport dog to the next level by increasing strength, dexterity, proprioception, power, and speed, while preventing injury? This can be done through a targeted fitness program!
Targeted fitness is based on the individual. It finds the dogs weakness and builds on it, balancing their strength and developing a stronger athlete. No program is the same because no dog is the same!
Join Dr. Shantel for a 2-hour mini seminar at On The Run! Canine Center Friday, February 26th, 2021 from 4 PM to 6 PM that will take 6 dogs to the next level of training! There will be 6 working spots and 4 auditing spots available. All participants must be cleared of injury. Although a rehab veterinarian, Dr. Shantel will not be providing full assessments of participants. However, an overview of how to identify a weakness or injury in your dog will be performed and each dog will be briefly assessed. A bonus will be any dog attending the seminar as a working sport will be added to Dr. Shantel’s list of clients if they do wish to be seen in the future for a full consult, but at a recheck price. Currently, she is not taking new clients.
Dr. Shantel will be bring FitPaws and Klimb equipment. Handlers will be introduced to the basic techniques, but the goal is to teach handlers and dogs advanced fitness training that will take their fitness to the next level! Handlers are welcome to bring what fitness equipment they have at home, so we can build a program around what they already have! FitPaws and Klimb equipment will be able to be purchased and drop shipped to handler.
