Recently the AKC announced an ambitious course for conditioning dogs, the AKC Fit Dog Level 1. A six-week class designed especially for dogs who compete in sports like agility, fly ball, and others, it provides strength and flexibility exercises that help prevent sport-related injuries. The beginning exercises are excellent for keeping any dog healthy through paying attention to correct posture, balance, strengthening, and flexibility.
Redfern will be offering a one-hour introduction to these exercises Sunday, November 1st, from 4-5. Dogs must be at least 18 months old and have completed an advanced obedience class at Redfern. They also must be able to focus and work on the exercises with their owner in a class situation without being distracted. Dogs must also be healthy with no issues related to legs, back or neck. The class is not appropriate to dogs who are currently in rehab.
