Canine Fitness and Conditioning workshop

February 3rd and 4th 2018

9:30am to 5 pm

with Fenzi Academy Instructor

Lori Stevens CPDT-KA, SAMP, CCFT

In this two-day canine fitness workshop, we start with foundation exercises on the ground and become skilled at observing dogs for proper alignment. and making adjustments as needed.Then we build into doing more difficult fitness exercises and using the equipment (whether purchased or homemade). People will leave with exercises they can do with their dogs and information on how to progress in the exercises.


This workshop is full of fun and precision without forcing dogs onto the equipment. We work with individual dogs at their current skill level. We work one dog at a time, short sessions, as we get into the fitness skill building. 


This two-day workshop includes:

  • Sharpeningobservation skills around proper alignment. What to look for in alignment.
