It’s pretty simple, actually.
They focus waaaay too little on the strengthening aspect of training.
Instead, dog owners often rely on mere walks or play sessions with toys, which fail to fully fulfill their dogs’ needs.
As a result, this neglect leaves their dogs unprepared for any activities, whether it be training, competing, working out, or simply enjoying hiking, fetching toys, and playing with other dogs.
This lack of preparation also increases the risk of injuries.
Something as basic as throwing a ball can end badly.
Did you know that a play of fetch is one of the most played games with our dogs and at the top of injury-inducing games at the same time?
Quick stops, turns and twists put the dog’s body into positions that are hard to handle, and thus increase the risk of getting injured.
If something as basic as throwing a ball can have such dire consequences, how do you think engaging in high-power activities like agility, frisbee, or any other dog sports will turn out?
All those high-intensity sprints, jumps, weaves, turns, twists, accelerations, decelerations, and changes of direction …
However, living in constant fear and refraining from engaging in any activities with them is clearly not a solution.
Because deep down you already know the hardcore truth, right?💡
If you truly want a happy, long, active, and healthy life (and sports career) of your dog, their good physical preparation should be your number 1 priority!
Taking part in daily activities is not only good for their physical health, but also their mental health …
It’s also a great way for you and your canine companion to bond in a new way.
Canine conditioning is a type of workout based on a number of specific exercises that aim to improve your dog’s:
With regular and appropriate exercises you will also improve the longevity of your dog and keep them fit and mentally entertained throughout their life, all from puppyhood to senior years.

I started working with Jana almost 3 years ago and ever since, she has been an indispensable part of our training plan. She is always there for us – for conditioning plan and workout (her tips on how to get a specific move from your dog are priceless) or regular preventive check ups and massages.
Regardless of what your dogs needs are, Jana always adapts to their individual needs. She is kind and with an amazing feeling and desire to help dogs to be in best shape possible. She gives her heart into every single one of her animal clients and treats them as they were her own. I’m grateful I have a chance to work with such a person as Jana is. And seeing how my dogs adores her, I’m quite certain they feel the same. Thank you Jana!
Dogs give their best every time they step on the training/competition field and doing my best to keep them healthy and physically prepared for all the challenges, is something I owe them as the owner and handler. And just because of that, Jana’s conditioning classes are a huge part of our training and warming up/cooling down routine.
All exercises are designed in a way to make it as safe for the dog as possible, she puts a lot of attention to details (which is REALLY important when we come to conditioning) and on top of that, Jana knows really well how to adapt to every individual dog and give them what they need the most (when you have breeds that are not really “social butterflies”, working with someone who understands dog’s character is really important).
So thank you Jana for your great classes and for all the “live” training and check-ups! It means a lot to me, to have someone so skilled watching over my dogs!
FUNdamentals Conditioning course is a very interesting and wonderful courses.
I learned many useful exercises for my dogs. I liked the very detailed and understandable explanation of each exercise, a lot of attention is given to the safe execution of exercises.
My dogs perform exercises every week during our walks, at home, before training. And they do theirs with pleasure!
Set Good Foundations:
With 5-minute Skill Time lessons, you will develop understanding, confidence, and achieve proper form.
You will work on things like:
You will want to polish the isolated exercises first before moving on to the workouts.
Proceed to Workout Weeks and Start Working Out:
To start building strength, you will begin working out with your dog by loading their muscles. It’s important to maintain proper form while executing exercises.
There are 6 weeks of done-for-you guided workout plans waiting for you.
Each week comprises 3 combined full-body workouts and 2 training opportunities to focus on your foundational skills.
You have the flexibility to work at your own pace, with the goal of completing 5 training sessions lasting 5 to 15 minutes each per week.
The final step is crucial to prevent your dog’s progress from plateauing and to help them continue to gain strength.
Once your dog has built a solid foundation and is ready, you can gradually increase the load and level of difficulty of the exercises to challenge them at a new, yet reasonable, level.
Each exercise is accompanied by tips on how to progress. Therefore, once you complete the initial round of Fundamentals, you can revisit the course and redo it with exercises of increased difficulty, enabling you to further advance and progress.
Exercises for The Front
– The Steering Wheel
Jumping puts a lot of pressure on a dog’s forelimbs. To prevent injuries, strengthen your dog’s shoulders, toes, and wrists. This provides better support during jumps and other high-power exercises.
Exercises for The Rear
– The Engine
The rear end acts as the engine of a dog’s body, responsible for pushing them forward. Improving your dog’s rear-end strength enhances their acceleration and takeoff power and provides support to commonly injured joints, such as the hips and knees.
Exercises for The Core
– The Stabilizer
The core muscles are the true stabilizing mechanism of the body. A stable core is crucial for providing better balance and stability. When the core is weak, the body compensates by overloading other muscles, increasing the risk of injuries.
We have prepared 6 weeks of done-for-you training plans, that combine exercises to hit all major muscle groups in a single training session. This allows for shorter recovery time and more frequent training sessions. Exercise
Bonus 1: Mobility Exercises
Active stretching and mobility exercises prevent muscle tightness and shortening, which improves power and reduces the risk of injury. Use this cool-down routine after agility runs or in weekly workouts to improve your dog’s flexibility and range of motion.
Bonus 2: Skill Room
This is where you’ll find all foundation exercises thoroughly explained: benefits, proper form of execution, teaching tips, common mistakes to avoid, etc. You will unlock new exercises on a weekly basis and gradually fill your skill room.
This course is thorough in its approach, explaining each move and its purpose in detail.
You will find thorough explanation of foundation exercises that are included in the weekly workouts.
Follow six complete training-week schedules with 18 structured workouts, accompanied by training tips, planned regeneration days, and various difficulty levels. You will never run out of ideas on how to continue and progress.
* Utilize downloadable Workout PDFs to organize your notes and keep track of your progress.
To facilitate easy learning and maximum progress, the workout chapters will be made available to you on a weekly basis, gradually unlocking new content within each chapter.
These quizzes serve as a delightful way to reinforce what you've learned, challenge yourself, and track your progress.

1Canine Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation
(Zink et al, 2018)
Muscles act as shock absorbers for the joints, thus exercises that strengthen periarticular muscles can have a protective effect.
2Essential Facts of Physical Medicine, Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine in Companion Animals
(Bockstahler et al, 2019)
Appropriately conditioned performance and working dogs perform better and are less likely to suffer injuries. When injuries do occur, they tend to be less severe, and recovery is faster. In addition, fit working dogs suffer less stress, which translates to greater stamina and longevity as working dogs- -a win- win situation for both dog and client.

Unveiling the Inspiration Behind My Program Design:
It’s Not What You’d Expect!
I know exactly what it feels like not knowing:
Worrying about whether you’re overloading or skipping something.
Being afraid that you’ll do something wrong and harm your loyal buddy.
When I was a veterinary student, I struggled a lot with finding good educational content.
I wanted to help my sweet puppy Genie after she broke her tibia in an accident when she was only 10 weeks old.
I still remember the heartbreaking look of those big sad puppy eyes.
My biggest concern was whether she’d ever be able to be active again.
I had no idea how to prevent her from future compensatory issues.
And above all …
How to enable her to grow up into a healthy, active, and wild adult.
Now I was on the mission – searching for the missing key!
I dug deeper and deeper into the field of canine conditioning, sports medicine, and rehabilitation.
It became my passion, guiding me forward and into the canine rehabilitation field even after I graduated with a degree in veterinary medicine.
I also went on to create a foundational online conditioning academy that changed the lives of thousands!
But, throughout all of this, I continued to compete in agility – I have been an active trainer and competitor in several dog sports with my own dogs for the past 18 years.
All this has helped me to understand their needs better … And how important it is to take care of their well-being – from their puppyhood to their senior years.
And with that, after years of work and research, I finally found the missing key for our beloved athletes:

Two non-slippery platforms.
You can use two lower planks or targets that your dog can comfortably step on or target with either their front or hind paws.
It can be a simple do-it-yourself wooden platform or foam pad, or you can always use some items from your household inventory.
If you don’t have a non-slip floor, I would advise you to use a mat or carpet that you can place in the room where you normally train (such as a yoga mat, carpet, or foam puzzles that you can clip together).
