Talking Speaking of Performance Dogs... Core Conditioning!

Since we were talking about weight on performance dogs, I thought I would share our new "it's dark when I get home from work" activity! I have been wanting to do core training for agility for awhile, but I finally found myself at the mall after watching a Janice Gunn video a few weeks ago.

Next step, blow it up and start training! I starting with shaping a nose tap, paw touch, two paws... then went to luring onto the ball. This is the end of her last two paw shaping session and pieces of her first time on the ball.

I am having loads of fun with this and I can tell how many muscles Mira is using to move around on the ball! We have a new after work activity!

Thanks!! You know, darn, I threw out the packaging, so I have no idea! I bought it at Sports Authority and it was the biggest one. I thought it was going to be bigger!

I tried looking, the brand is Altus and it was burst resistant (I felt that would be better for dogs, hehe) but nothing about the size...

Mira is one talented little girl!! I have had a few crash landings off the Swiss ball, so I am very impressed with Mira's coordination, balance and lack of fear!

This is really cool! I've been working my puppy on a BOSU, a la Susan Garrett, but now I'm thinking I should get an exercise ball for my Rottie boy. Great video.
