Prerequisite: Fluency on the paw pods (4 paws on 4 pods) OR Find 4 Feet Levels 1 & 2 (you might be able to get away with just level 1 and a bit more practice)
This class involves using the paw pods for a ton of different exercises! Over 6 weeks you and your dog will learn over 20 different canine fitness exercises using the paw pods.
Paw pods are one of my favorite pieces of canine fitness equipment, as they help to promote alignment, body awareness, and are my favorite props for strengthening through the dog’s feet and carpus/tarsus. We will also be able to engage other commonly underactive muscles that can be difficult to strengthen otherwise.
RECOMMENDED PODS, in order of preference:
- Totofit (my preferred brand). Available in Canada and the US.
- Flexiness Gangwerk. Available across Europe.
- Bosu Brand Pods. Available worldwide (?)
- Fit Paws Pods. Available in the US.
I often put a bit of traction tape on the bottoms of my paw pods to keep them from slipping.
Please do not use pods meant for humans!! They are often too spiky, too slippery, too large for our dog’s paws, and cave in when used. The Bosu Brand is the only brand that is also suitable for canines.
