Whether you're asking your dog to jump off the couch to go for a walk, compete in an agility event, lure course, herd livestock, or go for a hike, your dog needs the strength to perform the activity with as little risk of injury as possible. Many dogs are lacking strength in their core muscle group: the lower back and abdominals. In performance dogs, we see many lower back problems, mid-back problems, and iliopsoas strains. In nonperformance dogs, the first place we see weakness as the dog ages, is in the hind end and lower back. Working your dog on a stability ball, Peanut or Egg ball is an excellent and safe way to develop these muscles, which will aid in the reduction and prevention of problems. The Get on the Ball Two DVD provides four easy-to-follow programs: puppy, beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Besides providing detailed demonstrations of each program with experienced dogs, the DVD also includes an actual seminar held for ball work novices. Developed and demonstrated by Debbie Gross Saunders, a licensed physical therapist and a certified canine rehabilitation practitioner with over 15 years experience in the field. 3 hours, 3 disc set. This DVD shows how to use core conditioning equipment like the FitPAWS Peanut and FitPAWS Egg.
