Final Note

First of all, it’s important to have fun and be patient with your dog. If training isn’t working out, look into those big brown puppy dog eyes and you will see that they are trying their hardest to please us.

It is the latest new way of training. Please bring plenty of wet and dry food for this dog workshop. Only positive training methods are used throughout the workshop.

Any questions? Please email or call us on 0422 597 866.

Let’s do great things together for the dogs.

Club Coordinators stories about our Dog Fitness Training

Check out this story from Belinda O’Shea – Berwick Flyball & Obedience Coordinator

“Having specialised knowledge helped our members really grasp the importance of warm up and cool down. I’d recommend all clubs running performance activities attend.”  Check out Lauren’s story

Lauren Dolley – Frankston Obedience Dog Club Secretary & Coordinator

” Sarah’s enthusiasm and passion for dog fitness training and well being were infectious.  She further sparked my interest and concern re the fitness, safety, and longevity of our beloved ‘weekend warrior’ dog club.  Agility & Flyball can be harsh on a dog’s joints and long-term health.

Sarah’s knowledge of how to pull this all together is simple to look after our dogs in the right way. The workshop is very practical and is progressive with a step by step program. I would recommend anyone who cares about the long-term health of their dogs or who already suspects their dog is struggling physically to attend one of Sarah’s workshops.”

Helen Strong – Tassie Flying Paws Coordinator/Trainer

“We love our dogs and this workshop taught us how to look after them to prevent injury.  Anyone doing dog sports would benefit.”

Pam Atkinson – Croydon & Eastside Dog Club Coordinator
