All movement emanates from the core. The core is made up of muscles that span from the ribs to the pelvis. When these muscles contract in specific ways they can produce a corset-like effect that stabilizes the spine. This stabilization provides the body with a stable center from which movement is produced. Sasha Foster, MSPT, CCRT, provides four levels of progressive core stabilization exercises directly from her book, Canine Cross Training, Building Balance, Strength and Endurance in Your Dog. Handlers are taught to understand the importance of movement quality which determines which level of exercise to initiate for core stabilization strengthening. The exercises are taught to canine participants with reward-based training techniques.
