Private Coaching for Canine Fitness

Canine fitness is for ALL dogs. Whether your dog competes in agility, herds sheep, hikes in the mountains, or walks around the neighborhood, your dog will benefit from a fitness program to

  • build core, forelimb, and hindlimb strength
  • improve balance, flexibility, and body-awareness
  • increase speed and endurance

ALL dogs need strength, balance, flexibility, and proprioception regardless of activity. Why? Because all dogs move. That includes puppies, senior dogs, sport dogs, service dogs, active pet dogs, and even couch potatoes.

Suzanne will create a customized-program for your dog with the primary goal of providing a better quality of life regardless of activity.

Private fitness coaching is a virtual-only program for now, but in-person options will be available in the near future.

Start with an Evaluation

All private fitness coaching starts with a 60-minute virtual evaluation. During this evaluation, we will

  • review your dog’s fitness history
  • assess your dog’s physical abilities
  • discuss your dog’s fitness needs
  • set fitness goals
  • determine current progress toward those goals
  • recognize obstacles to reaching those goals

We will also formulate a plan for implementing your dog’s fitness program, including Suzanne’s level of hands-on involvement. Finally, you will leave this evaluation with 5 exercises so that you can get working on your fitness goals for your dog right away!

Implement the Canine Fitness Plan

Your canine fitness plan may include a combination of

  • strengthening exercises
  • body-awareness training
  • cardiovascular activity
  • stretching and flexibility exercises

The timeline depends heavily on a combination of your goals, current progress toward those goals, your dog’s history, your commitment to the fitness program, and more.

We can vary the amount and frequency of direct contact you have with Suzanne. This will depend on the plan we formulate and your comfort level and skills to implement that plan.

Independent Canine Fitness Plan Option

For those who feel confident in their ability to help their dog perform the exercises but are just not sure what exercises to do. Workouts are designed for you to implement on your own with the equipment that you have available. You will receive

  • 10 exercises, divided into two workouts
  • Instructions for frequency of workouts
  • Access to demonstration videos of exercises
  • Advice for evaluating your dog’s progress and increasing the degree of difficulty

These workouts can be as general or as specific as your goals are.

When your dog is ready for more challenging workouts, or when you’re ready to change things up, you can invest in another Independent Fitness Plan or switch to one of the Guided Fitness Program.
