Easy and simple steps for warm up and cool down short videos.
I enjoyed the course a lot. It had many useful information and it helped me to get an idea of the right warm up and cool down routine for my dogs
Very good, short and simple curse.
Excellent and very competent way of presenting information important for anyone who has a wellbeing of dogs on their mind. It's even more important for our competition dogs because they are true athletes who are giving their best for us.
The videos were good quality and demonstrated the exercises well. The warm up seems reasonable and doesn’t require extra equipment. Her training methods and her dog’s performance seem consistent with what I aspire to accomplish. The next time I have a few days off, I will probably get the “conditioning” course.

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.
“I liked this course very much. It is clear, useful and effective. It gives 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 sportsman, for everyone who cares about their dog.”
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 which 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 competition, because very often we, hadlers, 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 wellbeing of their dog and for the good feeling you both can achieve.
