The benefits of fitness are no mystery to most of us. My dogs are healthy and fit. I would like to define exercise and some other terminology I will use to work with you and your dog. Dog fitness is important and is in addition to regular obedience and social training. A daily fitness routine is also in addition to any sports your dog may enjoy with you. I am not talking about walking in the park!! I am talking about toning, conditioning, muscle building, mental stamina, physical endurance and more.
Most of these activities once you know how to do them with your dog; you will be able to maintain his condition yourself. I have a home gym for both myself and my dogs to workout in every day. We also train performance sports and enjoy outdoor fitness such as hiking. What I do with my dog depends on him...
The equipment you will need depends on what your home gym goals are with your dog. You can stay basic or go full commitment!
Conditioning with a Ball
Builds speed, stamina and reaction time.
Some dogs are obsessed with fetching and this can be beneficial for conditioning the body.
Beautiful choice for function, fun and building muscle and working your dog's mind.
Mastiff and bull breeds LOVE this fit activity, but any dog can do it.
Are the number one way to work your dogs beautiful mind, and is a practical choice for all of us.
Focus the mind and the body will follow!
Speed Drills Outdoor
Galloping, trotting and brisk walking are all locomotion exercises that maintain stamina and drain excess energy. Speed also builds energy in some dogs!
After a period of rest, obedience drills make this activity number one for active dogs!
