In this six-week class you’ll learn about how to keep your aging-dog’s minds and bodies active. As dogs age they typically lose hind-end strength, proprioception, and slow down just like we do as we age-- even mentally. As they age even more, they can lose function, e.g. going up stairs or getting in the car. Many of the tools and techniques you will learn in this class can be used with a dog of any age but this class is targeted at middle-age and older. In this class you will learn bodywork, fitness exercises and proper alignment, harness fit, tips for everyday life with older dogs and more. You will learn how to support your dog as they age, how to keep them active, and how to keep them functioning in everyday life. If your dog has lost function, e.g. the ability to do stairs, you’ll learn what you can do to help your dog regain function again. You will learn about equipment that will make your aging-dog enjoy life more. You will also learn things you can do that will make your own life easier while living with, loving, engaging, and caring for an older dog. This is an introductory course, meaning no prior experience with any of the topics covered is needed. For gold level participants, I will provide feedback on your technique, and on your dog’s alignment while doing the exercises, and give you tips and support for how to be more successful with all of the exercises and concepts presented in this course.
