New Class Starting June 8!

Beyond Foundation 

Instructor: Tracie Lampton, MT, CCFT

Jupiter, FL outdoors under Pavilion on mats 

4 weeks

Starting Saturday June 8 (no class June 15, 29 or July 13) at 8:30am 

Description: Beyond Foundation Class (limit to 8 students) 

 This class will be a 4 week beyond foundation class for those interested in stepping up your fitness challenges. This class is for those that have been to an introduction to fitness class and your dog is familiar with inflatable equipment and understand foundation behaviors.  From observing each team over a multi-day class setting, it will enable me to have a more in-depth knowledge of your dog, provide a better forum for feedback and questions as you progress through learning the exercises, and help address any training challenges. If your dog does a sport, we will be doing exercises specifically for jumping, weaving, and more specific sports related exercises under the SAID principle, but regardless if your dog does a sport or not these will be excellent strength building exercises that will benefit any dog. Besides strength and balance we will also be doing a number of flexibility exercises.  The class will be over 4 weeks at my house by the barn under the pavilion on mats as well as the field. There will be lecture and exercises so dogs will get plenty of rest in between exercises.  This class is not intended to teach fitness program design. 

Cost of the class will be $110 and limited to 8 students. Dogs must be friendly and ok working near other dogs. This class is not for any dog rehabbing from an injury without clearance from your rehab vet.  I am a Certified Canine Fitness Trainer with over 5 years experience.

Fitness Foundation 

If you are new to canine fitness, or if you perhaps dipped your toe in by buying a fitness product, maybe watched a few videos or even attended a seminar but just not clear if you are doing the exercises correctly or how to put together an ongoing fitness program, then this class is definitely for you. The class will be progressive and will cover the beginning blocks of how to start your dog off on the right foot of canine fitness and will advance to more challenging exercises.  This class is not intended to teach fitness program design.
