This is a great way to get my dog ready for each competition in the agility ring, and then to cool down after completing our run. This was more in depth from some of the things I have been doing and has worked out very well. We just returned from CPE Agility Nationals (our very first!) and my dog who is now 10 years old, Q'd in 8 out of 9 events there.
That's fantastic to hear, Robin! Congratulations on your success at the CPE Agility Nationals! It's great to know that incorporating the warm-up and cool-down exercises from the course has made a difference in preparing your dog for competitions. Wishing you the best of luck!
I liked that this course gave detailed reasons as to why proper warm up/ cool down is essential - the course was brief and direct to the point which I like.
Anne, it's great to hear that you found the course helpful and informative! The importance of proper warm-up and cool-down routine cannot be emphasized enough.
Thanks for your feedback.
This was something that myself and my dogs have been missing out on and I am sure that now I have completed this course my dog’s body will be so much more prepared when we get on the startline than ever before.
Must-know for each competitor! Such an important topic to prevent injuries and get the best possible performance of each agility dog!
After this video course I am more able and conscious how to prepare my dogs before and after every training and competition. I am happy to give them all the time and preparations they need in order to enjoy the sport together, with less possible injuries and the best performance!
I like that the exercises are clear and simple. It’s great to get things more into a system, knowing how much and when to do each exercise. Before I was always unsure about how to warm up and cool down when running multiple runs a day at a competition or a seminar. Now I have a plan as I now have an idea about how long the perfect warmup should last.
This is the best warm up/cool down resource I have come across. 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.
The tips are practical, well explained, and the videos provide close up detail on exactly how to perform the exercises. Since using this info, I notice better recovery in my dogs from training sessions, and I feel better too knowing I am doing my best for them!
