Exercise 2: Torso Stretch The next stretch will require you to grab your right armrest with your left hand and pull and twist your torso to the right. Hold this position for 10 seconds. You can then do the same on your left side.
Exercise 3: Gluteus Stretch This exercise will stretch the glutes or the buttocks. Move forward in your chair so that you are sitting on the edge of the seat. Put your right ankle just over your left knee. Hold your right leg with both hands and gently lean forward. Now do the same for the other side.
Exercise 4: Hamstring Stretch This next exercise will stretch your hamstrings. While sitting on the edge of your chair, straighten both legs then lean forward and touch your toes (or as far as you can go) and hold for 10 seconds.
Not only does warming up help prevent injury, it also gets blood flowing to your muscles, and gets your body ready for what it is about to do. A good warm-up will enhance your energy and improve your reflexes.
We buckle up. Why shouldn’t our best friends? Minimize driving distractions and increase protection for both you and your dog.
The complete harness system comes equipped with an adjustable safety tether that has two high-grade aluminum carabiners. These carabiners are climbing-grade and have been tested for 2,500 lbs. for the small size and 5,000 lbs. for the large. The Bergan Auto Harness is durable but also lightweight and comfortable for the dog, and easy to use!
Are you unhappy with your dog’s 2-on/2-oﬀ contact performance or are you starting to train a new dog for agility? Rachel Sanders has developed a clever method of teaching a 2-on/2-oﬀ contact that does not rely on teaching a nose touch. Instead, it uses simple garden fencing and a travel plank to help teach the dog his end position. Training goes quickly because the dog understands the concept of rig the end position right from the start.
