This course teaches your dog the paw targeting skills to master the elusive Paw Pods!

  

Why Train This Skill?

  • The convex surface of the paw pods encourages engagement of the dog’s digital flexors (toes), carpus (wrists) and tarsus (hock).  These are commonly weak areas in dogs, and the paw pods are one of the best ways to strengthen them!

  • Exercising on the Paw Pods also challenges balance, core stability, and joint stability throughout the entire kinetic chain

  • The paw targeting prerequisites will give your dog the skills and confidence to master the paw pods with ease!  Paw targeting is a fantastic way to increase individual limb awareness and proprioception

  • Altering limb placement on the paw pods can target commonly underactive muscles, including the thoracic & pelvic limb adductors.  For many dogs, this helps to decrease muscular imbalances between the adductors/abductors.

  • PLUS – It’s a pretty impressive trick to show off!
