Obedience Is Like A Marathon-Type Of Sport. Having Endurance Is Not All There Is To It.

Obedience Is Like
A Marathon-Type Of Sport. Having Endurance Is Not All There Is To It.

Obedience dogs have to consistently carry out tasks with the utmost precision.

Think about what kind of motions dogs do when participating in obedience …

Imagine all this:

  • Perfect heelwork
  • Explosive accelerations
  • Abrupt decelerations
  • Fast and precise positions
  • Direction changes

But what is most important, they have to maintain focus for up to 20 or more minutes.

This mix of endurance, explosivity, and concentration makes obedience a tough sport! 

There are many potential risks of injuries, such as:

  • Repetitive explosive accelerations and abrupt deceleration forces
  • Slippery surfaces
  • Possible equipment negotiations

I know how frustrating it feels when things don’t go as planned.

But that’s okay.

There are important steps you can take to minimize the risk of potential injury.

Properly warming up your dog is one such thing, and it’s 100 % under your control.

Cooling them down after and helping them to relax is also important.

The best part is that not only will you greatly reduce the risk of potential injuries and boost regeneration, …

But you will also immediately improve their performance abilities!

Why Solely
Walking Your Dog is Not Enough
to Prepare Them for Explosive High-Power Obedience Actions and Maintaining Focus?

Why Solely Walking Your Dog is Not Enough to Prepare Them for Explosive High-Power Obedience Actions and Maintaining Focus?

Did you know that human sprinters who run the 100 m thoroughly prepare and activate their muscles for over an hour before they start?

And all they have to do is run straight for less than 10 seconds!

Now imagine your dog maintaining focus for up to 20, or more minutes, to carry out all the physically demanding tasks with the utmost precision.

Don’t you get anxious, fearing they might get distracted and make a mistake?

Olympic gymnast and gold medalist Shannon Miller once said:

In the Olympic games, everyone is talented. Everyone trains hard. Everyone does the work. What separates the gold medalists from the silver medalists is simply the mental game.”

The same is with dogs.

The better your dog will be prepared mentally, the better the result.

This is why you need a proper warm-up and cool-down routine.

A short walk alone won’t suffice.

During a simple walk, the dog simply can not evolve a sufficient connection with you.

Also, walking only warms up the large muscle groups in one plane of motion – forward.

But dogs need to twist and turn their bodies as well.

That’s why we have created our signature 3D warm-up and cool-down routine.

It is specifically designed for obedience dogs.

You’ll learn how to activate the required muscles and perform movements in all planes of motion (including forward/backward, sideways, and rotational).

And …

How to take your dog’s focus and precision to the next level.

Just picture yourself with an inner sense of confidence and tranquility.

You’ll finally be able to focus solely on your dog’s performance.

And the best of all … 

You’ll have a peace of mind, knowing that you’ve done everything possible to ensure your dog’s focus and safety on the obedience field.

I am so excited for you to elevate your obedience game!

Your dog will thank you for it.

The Success Stories of Trainers and Competitors
Speak for Themselves:

This video is a perfect guidance for a proper warm-up and cool-down routine. I now know exactly what to take care of before and after each run in training or competition!

Lisa Frick – Austria
International dog trainer and handler – 4 times world champion, vice European champion

I love how clear and straightforward the exercises are. Previously, I was unsure about how to warm-up and cool-down when running multiple times a day at competitions or seminars, but now I have a plan, including the ideal length of a warm-up.

Jane Elene Christensen – Denmark

I love the warm-up and cool-down videos and all the amazing details those videos include! Not only because they teach you how to properly prepare the dog for activity and help you to prevent injuries, but also because they show the importance of not only warming up and cooling down itself, but also all the bonding and mental preparation that happens during those activities. Full package.

Katarina Podlipnik Capuder – Slovenia
Dog trainer, founder of FUNtastic dog training, multiple AWC and EO medalist

It gives a clear programme for both warming up, cooling down, and post event stretches. It goes into great detail and explains every move and its reason behind it. I would highly recommend.

Optimize Your Obedience Performance and Safety with This 4-Part Warm Up Cool Down Routine

Here's exactly how you'll do it:

The goal of the proper warm-up routine should always be to gradually increase the load and power from lower intensity motions all the way up to higher intensities.

The goal of the proper cool-down routine should always be a gradual decrease in activity immediately after the exercise.

You’ll achieve this by following a proven and tested 4-part done-for-you plan:

Step 1

Gradual increase in activity:

You will start with some simple walking and trotting.

Step 2

3D (three dimensional) progressive warm-up:

Inside, you will discover a set of 9 dynamic exercises that have been carefully selected to follow a specific order, number of repetitions, and rest intervals. This is designed to optimize recovery, and achieve maximum performance.

Step 3

Sport specific part:

You will learn how to mimic the actions your dog is about to perform during an event. Sport-specific actions typically involve precision movements with fewer repetitions to maintain a positive attitude and motivation.

You will also learn how to boost your own spirit before entering the ring with a simple visualizing pattern. This way you will lower the performance stress and help your dog to stay motivated and focused as well.

Step 4

Gradual decrease in activity

You will finish with light walking and trotting and include mobility exercises for better flexibility and range of motion in the joints.

Real Results from Real Customers All Around the Globe

The tips provided are practical and well-explained, and the videos give a detailed, close-up view of how to perform each exercise. Moreover, I feel more confident in my abilities as a handler, knowing that I am doing my best for my dogs!

Linda Barton – Canada

Loved the course. Afterwards, I feel like I have the knowledge of how to warm-up and cool-down all specific parts of my dog’s body. Jana explains everything very detailed.

Anja Bachem – Germany

An absolute must-know for every handler and responsible dog owner!

Eva Lacnakova – Czeck Republik
Multiple team member AWC, EO, bronze medal in small teams AWC 2019

This course gives me a routine to follow. It is so simple to learn and repeat every time. So now I never forget to do any of the exercises before training and competitions.

The routine makes me confident as I know I’m doing the correct thing to warm up my dog, and I know when to begin the warm-up before we enter the ring because I know exactly how much time it takes.

Now, I enter the ring being more relaxed and concentrated; I feel less competition stress because me and my dog are already connected and my dog is more focused, with a good level of arousal, not too low or too high.

I like the course very much because Jana explains what we have to focus on very well. The videos are pleasant to watch and it is very easy to learn the exercises and the routine. The additional part, which I liked the most, is the section on how to check if a dog has a problem using the easy range of motion moves that I can perform myself.

With them, I can discover some tension or pain and have my dog checked by a vet soon, before the injury becomes worse. I adore the advice to breathe and relax before the competition, because very often we, handlers, forget it and our mood makes our dog uneasy in the new environment.

This course changed how I begin every training and competition. I suggest every handler enrolls in this course, for the well-being of their dog and for the good feeling you both can achieve.

Does This Suit Me?

Yes!
 
You will receive the exact protocol you can use with your dog.
 
You will discover how to make this routine your own and adapt it to your dog’s needs if you feel it could benefit them.
The warm-up routine will take you approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.
 
This will give you the freedom to prepare your dog’s cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems for the upcoming activity.
 
The precise timing of the routine also depends on external factors:
 
  • Is the weather warm or cold?
  • What kind of mood is your dog in?
  • Do you have any exercise preferences?
 
For example:
 
A dog who does not have a lot of mental stamina, and is unable to hold their focus for longer periods of time, might find it difficult to concentrate for 15 minutes straightThis might lead to a drop in motivation.
 
In such cases, you can adapt the warm-up routine by adding in some breaks. Doing so will help keep your dog’s motivation high.
 
You should also adapt the routine if the weather is warm and you need to keep your dog’s heat levels low. We will discuss all these adaptations in further detail inside the course.
You can do a majority of the warm-up exercises by having your dog on a leash. Thus you can perform them in a small (square meter or two) area next to the training/ competition venue.
 
Under ideal circumstances, it is best that you find a larger area/open space where you can perform some of the final sport-specific fast-motion exercises. Such as sprints, for example. I understand that sometimes you cannot find enough space to complete those final sport-specific exercises. Or you cannot find an area with a big enough non-slippery surface …
 
Do not worry, we discuss exactly how you can adapt your warm-up exercises in such cases. For the cool-down routine though, you can do everything by having your dog on a leash.
Under ideal circumstances, you shouldn’t use the exact same routine. You should adapt your warm-up routine to the needs of different dog sports.
 
The more physically demanding the upcoming activity is the longer the warm-up routine needs to beA proper warm-up should include exercises that mimic the motions which will happen during the activity later on.
 
The warm-up routine also mentally prepares you and your dog. You should have your own unique warm-up routine to meet the specific physical needs of each dog sport.
 
This way you will also provide the best mental stimulation for the upcoming activity.
 
If your dog participates in dogfrisbee, flyball, or any other explosive type of sport, you can still join the course and learn all about warming up and cooling down your dog!
 
This knowledge will also enable you to change the presented routine to fit the needs of your own dog sport.
 
If your dog participates in Agility though, you can take a look at our Warm-up / Cool-down routine for Agility.

No, all you need is a dog, some yummy treats, and a toy if your dog loves to play.

All the exercises can be done without any equipment at all!

Satisfied Participants Share Their Success

I have always used some kind of warm-up routine before training and competitions. During the course, I improved my knowledge of specific exercises to warm up all the muscle groups necessary for my dogs’ performance in the OB ring.

As a result, I will adapt my existing warm-up routine with new exercises to help my dog perform even better – in training and competitions! But more importantly, I will definitely start using cool-down routines – something we mostly tend to forget.

Your focus on cool-down has convinced me of the importance of this particular part of training/competing. It was definitely my favorite part of the course (apart from watching your dogs perform)! Your energy, sincerity, and knowledge are just amazing.

I definitely recommend this course for all handlers doing any kind of obedience work with their dogs. Even if you already have warm-up and cool-down routines, this course will provide many new insights and knowledge about preparing your dog for work, cooling them down, doing regular stretching, and checking them for potential issues.

Libby Smith – USA

I liked this course very much. It is clear, useful, and effective. It gave me a clear plan on how I can do warm-up and cool-down correctly. It’s very important for sports dogs. I specifically like a part about how to check canine athletes and stretch & mobility. I recommend this course for both beginner and advanced sportsmen, for everyone who cares about their dog.
