Just in time for your New Year’s Resolutions!  Get your dogs in better shape through the Body of Steel Workshop Series, which focuses on canine conditioning fun during three 1.5 hour workshops. Learn how to exercise your dog safely and understand the progressions of exercises to go from the complete couch potato to the seasoned athlete. Access to professional fitness equipment will be provided as well as suggestions for everyday household items that may be used as substitutions to get the same results (i.e., yoga blocks, pool noodles, etc.).

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Classes are suitable for puppies, senior dogs, and everything in between. Dogs should be healthy and not under current care for any injuries.

WHAT TO BRING: Safety is a priority. Please bring a non-restrictive harness with a handle on the dog’s back for spotting during work on the equipment.  No pull harnesses or harnesses with only a ring on the front – these are not suitable for class. You may borrow a harness from a friend to use for the day. If you have questions regarding a harness choice, drop Stacey an email, and she’ll provide recommendations.

RESERVE YOUR PLACE: Working spots are limited to six per workshop; it is anticipated to fill quickly. Email Stacey which class (or classes) you want to attend and which dog(s) you plan to work. One working dog per spot but you are welcome to bring multiple dogs and alternate them for the exercises so they don’t fatigue too quickly.

Of note: This course was recently offered as a whole body introductory class and received such great feedback that it is now provided as multiple classes.

COST: Working Spots: $45 for members, $50 for non-members. Auditors: $15 for members; $20 for non-members

Whether you are thinking about entering your first agility trial, or consider that event a long way off, knowing what to expect can make the experience a lot more fun and successful. On Friday, January 11th, I will be holding a “Trial Prep 101” seminar from 6-9.

Topics include:

  • What you need to know to enter a trial
  • The different venues
  • What to take with you
  • What to expect when you get there

There will be opportunities to have your dog measured, check in at the gate, walk the course, go to the line, and run a course with timers and a judge. The number of runs will depend on the number of participants. Participants (including auditors) will also be asked to “work” the gate, ring crew, etc.

Please contact Sally Silverman, CPDT-KSA privately with questions or to register.
