What is athletic conditioning for dogs?
Athletic conditioning can include a variety of therapeutic services, such as massage, aerobic and therapeutic exercises, aquatic therapy, and cross-training for dogs.
Athletic conditioning and strength training help to prevent injury by promoting higher levels of endurance, flexibility, and agility in these hard working pets.
Both dogs and their humans stand to benefit from the additional exercise and quality time that comes from being physically active together.
That said, canine athletes and working dogs are predisposed to experiencing more injuries than less-fit dogs.
Athletic conditioning can help to prevent damage to your dog's muscles and joints while allowing your pet to stay fit and active.
