We are pleased to announce the next phase of the AKC FIT DOG Program. CGC Evaluators can become AKC FIT DOG Instructors (Level 1) by completing a new course in AKC Canine College at: https://www.caninecollege.akc.org/products/akc-fit-dog-level-1 The purpose of the course is to teach instructors how to teach a basic canine fitness class. In the course, evaluators complete modules for 6 weeks of instruction. For each week, there is a video, corresponding written material and a quiz. The modules may be completed at the evaluator’s own pace. The course is taught by Jamie Popper. Jamie has been working in the pet training industry since 2011. She competes in multiple sports with her dogs, including competitive obedience, disc, and rally. She enjoys testing her training methods in these rigorous competition sports. Jamie has formal education and canine conditioning and strength training from the University of Tennessee, where she earned the Certified Canine Fitness Trainer credential. Through ongoing learning, attending seminars, and workshops with professionals around the United States, she has developed her canine fitness skill set. Since 2015, Jamie has dedicated herself fulltime to Blue-9 Pet Products, where she is involved with the development of educational materials and programs.
