I have been neglecting Hank’s training since I’ve been primarily focused on Fever’s foundation this Winter. It is clear he’s not as strong as usual and I know the agility trial this weekend was tough for him. At 8 years old, it’s not as easy getting around a course with that big body as it used to be.
We’ll be spending more time on his strength training since we are scheduled to have a busy Spring. Luckily, I have terrific teachers to help me keep Hank fit as he moves deeper in to adulthood. That includes Frankie Joiris.
Strength training isn’t just for sport dogs, though. A strong body can prevent injuries during normal activities, as well as stave off the effects of aging. The exercise in this video is not for beginners. But if you want to learn how to keep your dog fit, let us know. We’ll be happy to get you started!
